Eugenie Lee is a 17-year-old rock climber from London. She started climbing when she was 9 years old at the Castle Climbing Centre where she was picked out to be part of their competition squad. At the age of 11 she started competing and by 13 was selected for the British climbing team, since then she has competed nationally and internationally in bouldering events such as the Youth British championships, British championships, Blokfest, European Youth Cups, and the World Youth Championships.
She has just recently come back from competing at the World Youth Championships in Innsbruck, Austria where she managed to come 21st in bouldering and 39th in lead.
Originally she competed in only bouldering but recently opened up to leading and speed too. This year she has also dabbled in trad and sport climbing in the U.K. and Spain and she wishes to continue to increase her outdoor experience.
Between studying for her A-Levels Eugenie likes to cram in as much climbing as possible and has her sights set on being selected for the GB climbing team.
