BRYCS 2009

Climbing-wise, this has been an interesting year for the Broome Family,

Both Noah (10) and Naomi (12) qualified to take part in the British Youth Climbing Series 2009 this weekend.

Noah proved his mettle last year by coming in a respectable 5th while at this time, Naomi hadn't yet started climbing. After passing team trials at Dynamic Rock in Swansea, they started preparing themselves for the Welsh round of the competition, where both kids put in an amazing effort to take 1st place (Noah) and 2nd place (Naomi) in their respective categories.

The National final took place in London on Saturday 20th June at the Westway Sports Centre in London and the competition was amazingly fierce.

The venue would have been great except for a very strange decision to cram all of the climbing into half of the centre; putting most people immobile in a bone-crushing-tightly-packed-standing room-only-fire-hazard pile of bodies while the rest of the venue was mostly vacant. A far cry from last year's competition at Ratho.

In the end Noah came 6th and Naomi 26th (which is still great considering how far she had come in just 8 months of climbing), and Noah at least is looking forward to having another go next year.

HI Grant, can't believe I've just spent two days working with you and didn't realise you were a climber too- should have realised you skinny welsh whippet, I've not been climbing much in recent years- too much work and nappy changing, but look forward to climbing with my kids too in the future.

Hi Paul, I'm not really a climber at all. It's the kids. I only do a little bit of indoor climbing when I'm not injured from the last time I fell off the bouldering wall. I never touch actual rock!

It was great working with you these past few days and I'll certainly keep in touch.

Sorry if this is off-topic, but I guess just fyi, New York has a whole county (with a city of the same name) dedicated to your family name. Any connection?

If a series is not organised in their region climbers may enter the series in the region nearest to them.
