British Youth Climbing Series Finals
The finals of the BRYCS (British Regional Youth Climbing Series) takes place this weekend at the EICC in Edinburgh.
After battling it out against the Midlands and Peak District climbers over the winter, three members of our Redpoint Youth Team will be travelling up to Scotland to compete with the best young climbers in the UK. Have a great time Sam,Lauren and Star.
Congratulations Dave Rose!
There are only a handful of Climbing Development Coaches in the Midlands and currently only 60 nationwide. Our very own David Rose can now proudly count himself in this small group of coaches trying to help people attain their climbing dreams.
Quote from Daves assessor:-
“Climbing and particularly indoor climbing is coming of age, and I can’t think of a better skilled coach to support this at Redpoint Birmingham. Dave has huge amounts of experience with a diverse range of climbers, he has the knack to developing emphatic communication very quickly with his coachees, and always gets results!”
I think everyone wants to improve their climbing? Why not book an assessment with Dave and plan how to attain that goal.
