Statement of Youth

Statement of Youth.

Mile End Climbing Wall, Rock On and La sportiva are proud to present Statement of Youth, a team bouldering competition exclusively for young climbers.

Following on from the enormous success of the Italian Job 25 competition we decided to re-visit the team format but in a special competition just for young people.

The info

There are two age categories:

8-12yrs

Each team must consist of 4 people.

Everyone in the team must be aged between 8 and 12 yrs on the day of the competition (28th Sept 2019) but there is a maximum combined age limit per team of 42yrs. Teams with a combined age greater than 42yrs will not be able to take part.

Each team must complete a registration form (download form here). This form can either be returned via email to carlos.s@mileendwall.org.uk or handed in at reception on the day of the comp.

Each team must have a supervising adult named on the registration form. Each team requires a seperate supervising adult and they must actively supervise them both on and off the wall.

The comp for this age group starts at 10:00 and finishes at 13:00. There will be 25 boulders set by BMC YCS setters.

This age group will not participate in finals and the results and prizes will be announced around 13:30.

12-16yrs

Each team must consist of 4 people and at least 2 of these must be female.

Everyone in the team must be aged between 12 and 16 yrs on the day of the competition (28th Sept 2019) but there is a maximum combined age limit per team of 56yrs. Teams with a combined age greater than 56yrs will not be able to take part.
