Congratulations to Paul (Y7) who participated in the Irish Lead Championships, one of the premier events for Junior Lead Climbers under the age of 14 years old.  The 2024 event took place on Saturday 4th May at Awesome Walls in Dublin.

Athletes climb secured by a rope, one at a time, on a route with a 6-minute time limit. In Lead, the aim for the competitors is to go as high as possible in an individual attempt on a 15m wall and the athlete who reaches the highest point wins. The event started with two qualifying rounds after which the top 6 battled it out in the final. Paul qualified in fourth place and managed to move up to second in the final of his age group (C). This is quite an achievement considering he was one of the youngest competitors in his age group. Paul is part of the GB Youth Climbing Team.
