Success at SYBC 2011

On Saturday I travelled to Transition Extreme in Aberdeen to compete at the Scottish Youth Bouldering Championships.

I was in Boys 11-13 years category. We had to climb 15 boulders in the qualifier. I topped them all first attempt and so did Angus Davidson and his brother Robert.
One of the qualifiers
Chilling out before isolation - we are better at climbing!
Four climbers went through to the final. We were in isolation for the final and there were two problems to climb. We had 4 minutes to complete each problem. I topped both and so did Angus.

In the Finals - a tricky green
Angus and I then had to have a super final on a very difficult, reachy and powerful problem. I had to climb first and came off quite low down on a dynamic move. Then Angus came out of isolation to climb. He tried a different way from me but slipped off. I had won!

It was a fun day and I was really pleased to have won. Angus was 2nd and Robert 3rd.
Hanging out with Angus!
I am now looking forward to competing in Arco, at Rock Junior 2011, at the weekend.
