JBBC round 2 ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hi guys! So last weekend I competed in round 2 of the JBBC 2015 at TCA and I came in 3rd place๐Ÿ˜Š I am very happy with how I did as I came 15th in the last round and I am sitting in 4th over all right now๐Ÿ˜†

It was a tough set of qualifiers, 8 problems over all. I flashed 5 on my first attempts and the last 3 were the tricky ones. I got the bonus on two of the other three and on the last I just missed the bonus! I got a bit upset as I thought that I had done very badly (I thought that the scores went by tops then bonuses but they went by tops then top attempts) but I qualified for the final in 2nd place! I was so chuffed and this really put my positivity for the finals up ๐Ÿ˜Š
In the finals I was second last to go out and climb as we had isolation. On the first climb I got the bonus and was going for the top hold. Only me and one other girl got the bonus on this. It was a tricky climb with a lot of slopers and triangular volumes on it. The second problem was a weird slabby corner volume type climb which I topped on my third attempt, this is what lost me the points as two other girls flashed it. On the third problem I didn’t get anything, it was weird with small holds at first onto a bobbly volume and the bonus is a big square volume but there is no good footholds for the move to the volume. Over all I am very happy I came in third and I am happy with my attitude on the day and I can’t wait for the third round in Bristol ๐Ÿ˜Š

British Championships

hi guys! So yesterday I competed in the ycs British final/ British Championships at Ratho! I did not have a great day, let myself down but I am just happy that I made it to the final๐Ÿ˜Œ

Overall I am not happy with how I placed; 28th out of 33. I stupidly fell off the first climb at the 5th clip as I didn’t have my feet high enough. This resulted in a major knock back for me as most of the girls in my category topped it out. I was annoyed and upset during the first Boulder and did not do very well at all in that, some girls topped it whereas I kept struggling with the first move. On the second Boulder I was not just as negative and got the highest in my half of the group as I took a different approach to the climb by going up left instead of right. On the second route I did okay. I got to about average in the group to be approx, only one girl topped this out. On our third Boulder I did not climb to well, I lost focus and my third attempt was the only decent attempt. On the third route I did decent. Not good , not bad. I expected to get higher but some girls did not even get to the second clip. Not a very good day for me but it was a learning experience and I know what I need to work on ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Here are some photos:

sybc 2015๐Ÿ˜‹

Hi!! So on Saturday I competed in the sybc ( Scottish youth bouldering championships) and it was really good. I came4th in qualifiers and 3rd in Finals, the girl who was 1st was English so techniqually I am 2nd in Scotland youth C if u think about it๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‚. I was very tired after as I had to climb for 3+ hours in the morning , have a rest, then climb for another few hours in the evening for finals! The qualifiers was 15 (I think) problems varying in grade. Here are the qualifiers results:  

  

The top 6 were selected for the finals and in the finals we had 3 Boulder problems to do. We had isolation though and it was quite fun but also nerve racking. The final outcome was very close and I took home third place , quite happy ๐Ÿ˜Š.
