In a mixture of nail-biting finalés, and seemingly inevitable trophy collections, the 2001 Troll British Indoor Climbing Championships were concluded at the Leeds Walls last Saturday. Whilst Lucy Creamer (right) clearly demonstrated her lead amongst the women, with a clean 400 points, there was a battle amongst the senior men.The championship position was opened up to some extent by Steve McClure´s departure to China. Gareth Parry was clearly the favourite with two wins, and successes on the competitive bouldering circuit. His main rival, Chris Cubitt (left) had showed his form later, with two wins in a row, but to win overall he needed to win at Leeds, and for Gareth to come outside of the top three. It happened thanks to an awkward move low on the final route, giving Chris his first championship victory.Amongst the junior boys, Paul Smitton, despite victories in the previous two rounds couldn´t make up points lost earlier in the year, and was pipped to the post by Jamie Cassidy who showed consistently good form throughout. The junior women had a similar position to the seniors, with Jemma Powel (right), having dropped only 20 points at Sheffield (to an improving Sadie Renwick), with a clear run to victory.
