Winter Bouldering League – Round 3

January 4, 2018 3:54 pm


The Atmosphere

This round was the first setting of the Squad Zone! With the new zone at Highball being set for the first time, and by Nathan Phillips, this meant that it was extremely busy. Competitors were queued up, excited to take part in this round and try out the new wall.

The rounds are starting to feel a little warmer again, and this time round layers weren’t quite as necessary. With the build up of a little speech from Benny about the new mats (they’re a lot stiffer than the old mats, so remember to climb down!) the rope was withdrawn, and the comp began!

Attacking The Blocs

With the competition style setting done by Nathan Phillips, there were plenty of very interesting blocs to keep everyone entertained. The routes set in the Squad Zone were exceptionally difficult, one sporting only two holds and two volumes. A couple of dynos were littered about, and feet were frequently leaving the wall.

Nathan Phillips unpredictable style left the competitors wary from climb to climb, and the blocs were all independently brilliant.


Wrap Up For Round 3

Round 3 was markably a tougher round than the previous rounds, but the blocs were interesting and keeping the climbers on their toes (or off them). The round was a blast and as always there was a great atmosphere and a strong sense of camaraderie and community.

The round tailed off with a few die-hards still trying to get those sends, and if you looked closely you’d have seen a cheeky monkey having a bash at the Green route on the arrête.

This rounds Play Your Cards Right was not won, so the prize money of £25 rolls over to the new round, which is on January 26th and will be set by Yann Genoux. See you then!
