All competitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by one parent/guardian only, but loco parentis can be used where required. If a parent/guardian, spectator or coach, volunteers to assist in a Judge or Belayer role on the day, this will be in addition to the accompanying adult.

LEAD CATEGORIES

These categories are set each year relative to a competitor's year of birth:

Youth C: 2009 & 2008

Youth B: 2007 & 2006

Youth A: 2005 & 2004

Senior (16+): 2005 & earlier

Due to covid, there is no veteran category this year. This is temporary.

COMPETITION FORMAT

There are two qualification routes per category, there will be no isolation for these routes. The starting order for the first qualifying route is random. Then the starting order for the second qualifier is the same as the first but staggered halfway. E.g. If there are 20 competitors in the category, number 11 will climb first on the second qualifier.

For the finals, all finalists will be held in an isolation zone. There will be a six minute observation of the final route, and then the finals are climbed on-sight.

All categories £35
