Cowichan’s climbing Doyle brothers move up to nationals

Rock climbing brothers Aidan and Brennan Doyle once again topped the competition at the provincial championships held in Saanich last weekend.

Aidan won both the speed and difficulty (ropes) classes in the youth B (14-15) boys category, while Brennan won the same two titles in the youth C (11-13) boys division.

The boys had previously won their respective provincial bouldering titles in February.

The brothers have now qualified for the national championships, which will be held on May 16-18 at the Boulders Climbing Gym in Victoria.

Aidan has already beaten the speed qualifying standard that could allow him to represent Canada at the World Championships in Italy later this year.
