Many congratulations to Matilda, Form 6, who has won three consecutive climbing championships – in Glasgow, Wales and Manchester.

Matilda’s first success was in Glasgow, where she won the Scottish Bouldering Championships.

She followed this up by becoming the Welsh Lead Climbing Champion (for her age group) in Caernarfon two weeks later. 

 

After a week’s rest whilst on the Form 6 trip to Cornwall, Matilda was up in Manchester for the British Youth Bouldering Championships last weekend, where she won the British Bouldering title as well!

Matilda is still in age group C, which is made up of 12 and 13 year olds. There were 34 competitors and the top six progressed to the finals.

The final consisted of four boulder problems, with five minutes on each problem, followed by a five minute rest, before moving on to the next one. Maximum points are scored for reaching the top but it’s also important to do this with the fewest attempts.

Matilda won the final because she had the same number of tops and bonuses, but with the fewest attempts compared to the other competitors.
