Academy – BMC YCS Final 2016

The Boulders Academy is an engaged and active part of the UK youth climbing scene, and this year it was no different as several of our Academy members proudly represented their country as part of the Welsh Team in the BMC Youth Climbing Series Final.

The BMC YCS final took place in April in the incredible RATHO climbing centre in Scotland, and members of our Academy made the voyage up to Scotland along with our hardworking and dedicated coaching team, consisting of Simon, Joe and Bee, who have been working tirelessly with the Academy all year.

After strong showings in the Welsh legs of the competition, and an amazing amount of work put into training sessions, just being a part of the final was a great achievement as all the nation’s best climbers converged on RATHO to show off their skills.

We want to express our gratitude to all the members of our Academy for their hard work and their passion for the sport of climbing, and of course thank the three coaches for all of the time and effort put in to leading the team. You’re all a credit to Boulders and to the sport!
