NuKids – June 2018

June 26, 2018 5:27 pm


The Atmosphere

The first NuKids evening since the big NuKids masters weekender! Thomas and Guy came out of their caves to lurch some blocs violently around the centre, giving us another brilliant evening of bouldering finesse.

Probably most noticable about this NuKids event was the orange holds. Yes, we do normally have orange holds for NuKids, and yes, they are the same orange holds that are normally around the centre. But they were very neon and noticeable.


A novel way to tackle a bridging problem


Attacking The Blocs

There were a decent couple of blocs out there for this round of NuKids, with a few dutty sandbag routes thrown in for good measure! A particularly aggressive pinch problem on the overhang of the DMM Comp Wall left almost all competitors spat off on the floor, looking bewildered!

A nice cheeky bloc was the bridging problem in the doorway on the back wall. As you can see in the picture, not every attempt to complete it was strictly the most efficient, but possibly even a little showy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Wrap Up For NuKids

As per, we absolutely loved hosting the comp night, everyone of you boulderers (well, most, anyway) are a joy to climb with and chat to, giving us a great evening, competitor and staff alike.

Keep an eye out for our next round of NuKids in August, it’ll be a blast to see you all there too!
