The Atmosphere

Being our ‘last ever’ NuKids Masters there was an awesome turn out with nearly 150 competitors throughout the evening. There where 25 blocs and 2 and a half hours to complete as many as you could. The top gun was announced at 214 (after everyone had finished scoring and climbing) giving a high scoring round for the qualifiers and forcing the competitors to give their all for the potential chance of entering a Grand Final on the DMM Comp wall. The final hosted a full house of spectators, and after a slight delay due to some timing clock issues we got underway, the competitors where probably thankful for the extra little rest.

The amazing Highball crowd did their job and provided some awesome atmosphere, especially during some last move drops especially from Emma on F3! Just unable to match the final hold!

“They climbed it how??” Some great expressions this NuKids Masters

 

Attacking The Blocs

Splitting the quals with a ‘junior’ and open qualifier meant the young guns (up to 12 years old) could have the blocs to themselves to play on before the rush of 100+ excited climbers came through the door to get a chance to compete in a Grand Final on the DMM Comp wall!

As soon as climbing time was announced it was go go go from all competitors! Every racing around to try and get through as many of the 25 blocs as they could, without getting that flash pump! The Squad zone was a impressive set of blocs with some proving technical and others strong! An awesome set from Guy and Tom throughout!

Wrap Up For NuKids Masters 2019

Well what an evening of climbing it was! Qualifiers kicked off big time & The Grand Final provided a top quality show for all spectators and climbers alike with some seriously awesome problems.

All crammed into one evening proved challenging for our timing clocks but we pulled through and finished the night on a high with all climbers having cheshire chat grins on their face, no matter where they finished!

Next up on 14th June is the start of the regular series. We are currently changing the name to hopefully stop confusion that it’s ‘only for children’ (which it isn’t, we aim this comp series at all beginner and intermediate climbers climbing up to font 6B+, no matter of their age!) look out for that newly named comp!
