BMC Leading Ladder at Harrogate Climbing Wall

We headed down to Harrogate to have a go at the leading ladder currently running there. It was our first attempt at competitive climbing, and it seemed to push us both. For me, I found that the added motivation to not weight the rope pushed my grade – I managed an onsight 6b lead, and almost managed a 6b+ onsight, failing due to missing a hold, hidden behind a large volume and not seen from the ground! Frustrating, but a good lesson in route reading! I’m feeling stronger and stronger as the weeks progress, which hopefully means that the focus and training is paying off!

As it took us longer than expected to work through all of the routes, we’re heading back tomorrow for the harder routes! I’ll post the scorecards tomorrow!
