Dublin to host Round 3 of Irish Youth Climbing Series


Gravity Climbing Centre in Inchicore will host Round 3 of the Irish Youth Climbing Series, sponsored by the Great Outdoors, on Saturday, 22nd October 2022.

The Series is a family-friendly event and a great opportunity to meet and make new friends. The climbers work together, support their peers and encourage one another rather than the focus being on competing with each other, making it a unique and pleasant experience for all involved.

Participants are put into five categories ranging from Youth A (born 2005/06) to Youth E (born 2013/14) and take on route climbing obstacles in the Series, which consists of four rounds in total. Round 1 took place at Boulder World Belfast on Saturday, 17th September while Round 2 was hosted at the University of Limerick on Saturday, 8th October with close to 100 young climbers taking part.

Each climber will have their Series score calculated as the aggregate of their three best ranking results in the Series at the end of the final round. The top three competitors in at the end of the Series, who have competed in at least three of the four rounds, will qualify to enter the Grand Final which will be held in the UK from 26-27th November.

Standard cut-off for registration for the event at Gravity Climbing Centre is on Monday, 17th October at 8pm sharp with the cut-off for late entrants on Wednesday, 19th October also at 8pm.

Entry is accepted only online on Eventbrite and competition forms can be downloaded from the Mountaineering Ireland website. Cost per entry is €15 for Mountaineering Ireland members, €25 for non-members and €35 for late entries.
