About MYCS

the series

The MY (Midlands Youth) Climbing Series is a fun event organised by parents of local young climbers and the climbing walls of the Midlands.

The series is a fun, friendly competition for youth climbers age 7 - 18. It is a warm up for the British Youth Climbing Series run by the BMC and gives young climbers the opportunity to experience competitions in a friendly and supportive environment.

The climbers compete in groups according to age. In the bouldering only rounds, competitors must complete 8 boulder problems, in the roped rounds competitors complete 4 climbing routes.

Groups E and D climb on top ropes with groups C to Junior leading.

The competition is open to anyone, not just those intending to climb in the BMC YCS and competitors can take part in as many rounds as they wish. Certificates are awarded to the three climbers with the highest scores in each group after every round.


The best four from six scores will determine the overall winners of the series with trophies and prizes being awarded at our grand final (ROUND 6).

Please note we may need to restrict the number of spectators / coaches including parents to 1 parent per child. This depends on the number of entries etc. We will endeavour to split the timings of the categories to accommodate as many non climbing people as possible.
