Scottish Young Guns

Scotland's young climbers' training seems to be paying off.

Nat Berry made the smooth transition from Junior to Senior taking the BLCC crown at Ratho with consumate ease. Super-wad Jonny Stocking did the deed in the junior males at both the BLCC and the BBC where he was joined on the podium by another young Johnny, Field this time who's training paid off with a fabulous 3rd place.

There is great strength in depth with the list so long I don't know where to start. By all accounts both competitions had great showings from all the other Scottish juniors and new seniors (Mr Kirkland's battle with qualifying route 2 was great to watch). The future is bright.

And for those who say "but what have they done outdoors?" the answer is quite a lot really! The highlights (but by no means the only things going on) belong again to Mr Stocking; flashing 8a with Mussel Beach at LPT and working his way through the trad. Onsighting E5 is a doddle E6 has been ticked and the Brandler-Hasse is in the pipeline...the future is in safe hands.
