The Atmosphere

With the weather being suspiciously warmer than the previous weeks, the preamble to the comp was more lively, people were actually warming up without wearing layers and layers. Jo had been busting out brilliant bacon baps with fries and Sausages with Mash for the dinner special, and they were flying out the kitchen like hot cakes!

The setting had been done by Guy Copland and a few extra members from the Highball staff, and the general consensus was that a fun set of problems had been supplied!

Attacking The Blocs

There were a lot of great blocs set around Highball, with one of the most noticeable being the door frame bloc that required the boulderer to go into the small tunnel in the Scarpa wall and use it as much as possible to their advantage to make it out to a hold far on the right. A lot of attempts were made and failed, but as always everyone was raring to get back on and conquer it.

The Rab slab also featured a fantastic balance-y bloc that required delicate movements to master, and had most competitors swinging out as they tried to make it through the moves.

Wrap Up For NuKids

The comp was brilliant as always, and much fun was had. For this round of NuKids the Top Gun score was 248, so if you scored this or higher you were a Top Gunner. The top scoring Top Gunners were Bradley Diggines and Brett FFitch, so congratulations you two!

The play your cards right jackpot was £100 for this round, and was won by Martin Ayling! We hope you enjoy it this holiday, treat yourself to a nice gift! This resets the jackpot to £25 for the next competition, so see you all then!

Interviews

Joshua Foster, Senior Male

20171215-IMG_0774

“How many comps have you taken part in before?”

Joshua: One or two, here and there!

“Is there a target score you’re after?”

Joshua: Top gunning would be great generally, I came to try them out and have look at what the Highball setters can do.

“What’s your favourite thing about the climbing competitions?”

Joshua: It’s a nice measure of your ability to climb, I like how you can see the personal improvement.

“What’s your favourite bloc at this competition?”

Joshua: I really enjoyed the bloc on the back of the boulder on the left, it had some nice moves in it.

“You got any tips or advice for anyone new to climbing or thinking about taking part?”

Joshua: Go wiiiiild! *laughs* no, just give it a go if you never have, they’re a lot of fun and it seems daunting but it really isn’t once you’re in it.
