The Atmosphere

As the Boss man said, this edition was ‘a good crack’. We had over 70 climbers turn up for the February edition of our NuKids Series and everyone was giving it everything they had. Guy, James and Adam got involved setting for you guys. TopGun for this round was at 243, so any climbers scoring over that are positively disqualified! Well done for topgunning if that was you, next stage is to test yourself within our Bouldering Leagues.

It was a super psyched bunch of climbers, no matter what age or ability! We had our youngest climber at 5, and we wont’ announce the oldest, but there was something for everyone!


Pressing, Bat hangs, Crack Climbing… Nukids was full of them this round!

Attacking The Blocs

The brief from the ‘Chief Setter’ included having a range of the abnormal climbs within the February edition of Nukids, we think the boys did a good job mixing up the blocs for this installment. Pressing, pushing, pulling, crimping, swinging, and the occasional falling was just part of the movement needed for this round! The lapis balls made an appearance and instantly became the go to problem on the comp wall, it proved to be a strong problem making its way through the bright green volumes.
