It takes putting a really average climber next to Britain's fastest and strongest climbers to highlight just how on top of their game our British athletes are…and we had the perfect guy for the job! We sent Niall Grimes to the British Lead and Speed Climbing Championships at the Beacon Climbing Centre where he got the answers to all the BIG questions… Who’s eyeing up the Olympics? How fast is Fast? And just how big are Billy Ridal’s biceps?
This year’s BMC British Lead and Speed Championships saw the fastest and strongest Brits gather to win the titles in the pump-fest of the Lead event and the blisteringly fast Speed event. Niall takes us behind the scenes and interviews the athletes, judges and belayers at the BLSCCs 2019.
