Final of our Winter Leading League

Posted on 16/03/18 in Uncategorised by Keith Harrison

Derek Groves starred in a great night enjoyed by all!  Here he is breezing up a 45 degree overhang on his way to victory.  Although in the Veterans category, Derek stormed through to register the best overall score for the competition- well done Derek!

Olly Forrest climbed well to win the Mens Open group.

Rob Swann came an honourable second to Derek Groves, and also won the award for most spectacular lob off the headwall!

Daria Shchedrina won the Open Women category with a strong all-round performance,

and Ruth Muncaster put in a tremendous performance to win the Women Vet category.  Ruth also won best overall lob, falling so impressively she passed her belayer on the way down as he rocketed up the same climb!  His ascent did not count.

Well done to Zac Hutton who won the Male Junior category, and to Lois Glazier who won the Junior Female category.

With grateful thanks to our sponsors Mammut, who provided us with many great prizes.  Sadly their mascot trod on the event organiser, Ste Hodgson, but it takes more than being trodden on by a mammoth to keep him down!


A great time was had by all; many thanks to Ste for his organisation of the event, and to all our competitors for their participation.
