Youth Boulder Series (BWMI)


Mountaineering Ireland is thrilled to invite young climbers to embark on an unforgettable adventure through a series of grassroots competitions taking place this April, May, and June 2024. Join us for a day filled with excitement, camaraderie, and the thrill of conquering fresh problems.

In collaboration with Boulder World Belfast, a vibrant and welcoming indoor bouldering gym, we present the BWMI Youth Boulder Series – a platform for young climbers of all skill levels to showcase their talent and passion for climbing in a social competition setting.

Participants, accompanied by their adult guardians, will be immersed in a dynamic atmosphere where they’ll have the chance to tackle a diverse range of boulder problems meticulously crafted to challenge agility, strength, and problem-solving abilities. Whether you’re a beginner seeking to build confidence or a seasoned crusher craving mind-bending challenges, there’s something uniquely tailored for everyone in this series.

So, grab your chalk bag, pick up your scorecard, and join us for a day filled with bouldering competition, forging new friendships, and, above all, having an absolute blast! Adults – bring your shoes too!
