So far, the two strong siblings have competed in Youth B Boulder. In Qualifications, Guy finished in 23rd and Kindar advanced to Semis in top-20.

In Semis, Kindar climbed his way to 17th, and while he won’t be heading to Finals, he is one of only a few Canadians to advance to Semis at the competition.

Kindar and Guy will both be competing in other Youth B events later this week. For more results and photos visit here.
