All competitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by one parent/guardian only, but loco parentis can be used where required. If a parent/guardian, spectator or coach, volunteers to assist in a Judge or Belayer role on the day, this will be in addition to the accompanying adult.
These categories are set each year relative to a competitor’s year of birth:
Youth C: 2009 & 2008
Youth B: 2007 & 2006

There are two qualification routes per category, there will be no isolation for these routes. The starting order for the first qualifying route is random. Then the starting order for the second qualifier is the same as the first but staggered halfway. E.g. If there are 20 competitors in the category, number 11 will climb first on the second qualifier.
For the finals, all finalists will be held in an isolation zone. There will be a six minute observation of the final route, and then the finals are climbed on-sight.

Highball Climbing Norwich
We created the [TBC] Comp series to cater for the majority of people who use our centre – those climbing up to Font 6b. It’s a fun competition for all ages, perfect for people who are relatively new to climbing or those who don’t take it too seriously – but still like a challenge! It runs bimonthly (Usually from 6:30pm) and is a great way to measure your progress – just compare your score from the previous event – and also pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses, helping you to focus your training in a positive way – if that’s what you want to do. The Highball Crew will set 30 problems around the centre, graded from font 3 to 6b (our circuits 0-3), and you have up to 3 hours to complete as many as you can. Scorecards are just £2 and each Comp has an opportunity for cash prizes and sometimes giveaways from sponsors too. Of course, you could just enter for the fun, it’s a really great social event! Full info found here: https://highballclimbingnorwich.com/events/competitions/tbc-series/ Preregister for the online scorecard here: https://www.scorecard.info/en/tbc-comp-series
