April has been a very busy month for Kirsten Pyper. The first week of the Easter Holidays saw Kirsten out in Austria at a training camp for the GB Junior Lead team where they trained in Austria at Tivoli and Imst, and also at Arco in Italy where the World Championships will be held later this year.
Kirsten then competed in the Scottish Boulder Championships, in Glasgow, achieving an outstanding win over some tough competition.
At the end of April, Kirsten then competed in the Grand Final of the British Youth Climbing Series, having won all 3 Regional heats for the North East and Lake District. The routes were particularly challenging, but Kirsten put in an impressive performance to come 3rd.
Congratulations must also go to Rosie Hurcombe who also made the Final in her first year of competition.
Kirsten’s next major competition will be in Imst, Austria at the International Youth Competition at the beginning of June. Good luck!Click here to see the coverage in the Chronicle Click here to see how you can support Kirsten
