Climbers gathered at The Barn in Crossflatts for round four of the Winter Bouldering League.

The target was to navigate 25 tricky challenges on the purpose-built wall as entrants looked to gain points by getting to the top of each four-metre climb on the first attempt.

Shipley competitor Lucy Needham explained: “Climbing can involve a lot of travel but having a local bouldering league creates a real community.”

Needham is returning to competition climbing after a three-year break but is currently heading the women’s class.

Peter Wilkinson is top of the men’s standings and Sam Mawson leads the juniors as participants jostle for position ahead of the finals on April 5.
