Reading Climbing Festival 2020

Well doesn’t that seem like a long time ago!

As usual our competitors turned up for the last round of our winter leagues to battle it out for those all-important top spots on the podium!


Rob Cook took the top spot (again!) for the men topping all of the finals followed by Robert Obreja (2nd) and Jack Fuller (3rd).

It was a very close women’s final with Megan Wyatt narrowly taking the win with Maya Harry (2nd) and Arianwen Fields (3rd) hot on her heels!

Flynn Ingram dominated the boy’s final taking a well-deserved top spot followed by Alexander Bishop (2nd) and Sam Gaines (3rd).

Another close final in the girl’s saw Ella Moffatt (pictured above) seal the win by one bonus over Isla Thompson (2nd) and Emma Little (3rd).

Moving on to Elevate

Frank Castillo took the top spot for the men by topping the final route followed by league leader, Michal Kowalski (2nd) and Mike Abdullah (3rd).

Emmeline Bolton topped the women’s final taking the win followed by Samantha Holden (2nd) and Jay Broadley (3rd).

Flynn Ingram was hungry for another win after yesterday’s bouldering final and that’s exactly what he did by topping the boy’s final route with Jack Styles-West (2nd) and Ryan Smit (3rd) giving it a great effort!

A very close girl’s final went to countback (and time!) to give us this year’s line-up: Lucie Hammond (1st) Erin Berry (2nd) and Isla Thompson (3rd) (pictured above).

Results for the Under 12’s category:


1st – Daniel Head

2nd – Austin Hammond

3rd – Ethan Jamieson


1st – Jessie Schenk

2nd – Rose Merret

3rd – Cassidy Hunt

A massive thanks goes out to all of our competitors, our Route Setting team and Swindon DJ for bringing the tunes, plus to Clara for designing this years awesome RCF2020 graphic

We look forward to seeing you all very soon when we re-open and who knows, maybe we’ll celebrate with another party! In the meantime stay safe!
