NuKids – February 2018

February 12, 2018 11:35 am


The Atmosphere

This round of NuKids was the first to feature the Squad Zone! Thomas and Guy had a whale of a time setting blocs up on the new walls, and went a bit wild with the problems. The rest of the staff had a set too, and in total 30 blocs in the grade Font 3 to 6b (with a couple of sandbags thrown in – can you guess which ones?) were set, ready for the competition.

Highball was bustling with boulderers ready and filled with eagerness to get on the orange holds and give all they had!

Attacking The Blocs

With the use of the Squad Zone and the DMM Comp Wall, the blocs were a lot more spread out this round. There were a bucket load of interesting blocs set, from the tough high-footed climb in the cave, to the side-ways dyno on the Squad Zone wall.

A fast favourite was the half-moon bloc on the far left of the Squad Zone, evoking a lot of bat-hangs from competitors in fits of levity.


Wrap Up For Round 4

As is usual with a bouldering competition, the atmosphere was great, with loads of friendly banter and fun being had around Highball. The competitors were a great sport (thats right, I mean it you lot!), and the bouldering was on point.

The Play Your Cards right was won on this round of NuKids! So, in the next round (in 2 months), the jackpot will be rolled back to £25.
