In August of 2022, six of the Moon Junior climbing team set off to Dallas, USA to compete at the Youth World Championships. With some exceptional performances across the board, from climbers both experienced and new to international competition, the World Champs was a great stage for some of the Moon Climbing Team. Below are a few words from each of our athletes on their experience in Dallas.

My first fingerboard was a Metolius Simulator; a big, heavy hunk of resin above my bedroom door. Actually, looking back, it wasn’t too bad. The edges had a reasonable radius, making them comfortable on the skin, and the jugs were comfy for warming up and pull-ups. My second was a Bleaustone board that hung on a beam above my bed at University; more thought had gone into the carving of this. Holds had different amounts of in-cut to force certain grip positions and there was a greater variety of holds but it was still a big, heavy hunk of resin.
