NuKids August 2017 - Write Up & Results



Written by Mr James (What a gent) Potter: The atmosphere tonight, on this NuKids competition evening, isn’t just electric, there is almost a sense of composure; a gathering of people fully aware and ready for the effort they will have to give. This round was no “walk in the park”, thanks to a sterling effort on the setting front from Tom, Guy, and Reece. We have been graced with a spicy set of blocs with some real gems mixed in.

My personal favourite moment was watching Darren Clayton on his ascents of problems 6 and 15. He was on the slabby number, stuck in a balanced position with beads of sweat running down his face. He just needed to push his body across, and he knew this as well as I did. With the footwork of a ninja and a few moments contemplation he made the last few moves his own. This man impressed me tonight! A few words from the competitors:

Ben Dreary:

Ben has entered 3 comps and his target tonight was simply to Topgun. Ben enjoys a good crimpy line in a problem and always try to get a toe hook in somewhere. He said,

“my nemesis tonight is Pink 28, which I can only describe as a slippery terror!”

 

Darren Clayton:

This is Darren’s 4th competition and he is looking forward to more advanced comps in the future as he is seeing improvements in his climbing. He says tonight’s Nukids is a spicy set compared to ones he has entered previously. He is currently working on his balance and discovering the benefits of using leg strength as opposed to pure arm muscle.

 

Joe Martin:

“I have been climbing now for around a year and this is the 3rd competition I have entered. I find the NuKids comps are great events with friendly exchanges of beta. Your ego is left outside but the competitiveness among friends remains. While competitions are about how many points you can accumulate, for myself the target is to see how my training has furthered my climbing. I am satisfied that at my age I can still manage tricky climbs and can reach my own personal achievements. For people new to this, I would simply say to pace yourself and to feel and embrace the fear and the joy.”
