And more than 30 – adults and youngsters – have signed up for the 2017 Paraclimb Festival on the same day.
The SYCC is aimed at young climbers aged eight to 19 years and tests their skills in both top-rope/lead climbing and speed climbing, in the linked Scottish Youth Speed Championships.
The SYCC is also used to help select GB Team competitiors from the members of the GB Development Squad.
