FAQs

What are the dates of the competitions?

British Lead Climbing Championships

CATEGORIES: Senior (including Junior & optional Youth A), Youth A, B & C.

DATE and VENUE: 20-21 November 2021 WESTWAY, LONDON 

Junior British Bouldering Championships

CATEGORIES: Junior, Youth A, B & C (please note Juniors will compete on the same boulder problems as Youth A , amended14.9.21)

DATE and VENUE:  4-5 December 2021 Highball, Norwich

YCS Grand Final

CATEGORIES: Youth A, B, C & D

DATE and VENUE: 27-28 November Parthian, Southampton

The competition entry numbers are capped - how will this affect the selection process?

Due to this constraint historical results will also be considered in the process as detailed in the selection policy. 

Why is Speed Climbing not in the Policy?

The GB Climbing plans for the discipline of speed are in development and we hope to be able to provide more details in early 2022.

Where can I find the appeals policy?

The appeals policy document is also being reviewed and will be published before the 19 November 2021

Are the the Combined Results from the IFSC Youth World Championships considered as a discipline?

Where the ‘combined’ discipline is run as a separate event (for example the Senior World Championships in Hachioji) it would be considered as a discipline. In the World Youth championships the combined ranking is calculated from an aggregate score of the lead, boulder and speed discipline results. Therefore, it would not be considered a seperate ‘discipline’ in this selection policy.
