This Saturday saw the last competition of the 2018 season. It started in July in France with a World Cup and finished with the last round of the National Paraclimbing series at Manchester climbing centre
A highlight of the year was competing in my 3rd world championships in Innsbruck where came 6th in the B2 making me the highest ranked British male in this category.
The final round of the nationals was one of the best UK comps I had been too. I came 2nd in this one narrowly missing out on first by a few points. This result it meant that i came 2nd overall in the B2 catogory.
At this competition me and my sight guide tried out a new system of getting me to the holds much quicker which I am very happy to say is working. Something else I have tried is wearing a blindfold for the roped routes, which also worked out well with my climbing being much quicker and Smoother.
I now have a few months to train before the GB Paraclimbing team selection day which will take place next year.
