The Atmosphere

Wow, that cold is back with a vengeance! But did that stop our competitors this round? Hell naw! They were out in force, and we had a very busy evening on our hands!

The Highball Youth Squad were out and rocking it in force too, and it was a great (albeit, somewhat tough!) round to kick off the Summer Bouldering League with!

For the Summer Bouldering League we are trialling a new ‘series ranking system’. The score sheets will remain the same, but the top 30 male and female competitors will be awarded points in line with their overall position on the night. These points will be used for the overall series rankings to identify who qualifies for the Grand Final.

Example:
If you come 1st, 2nd or 3rd on the night, you will be awarded 500, 400 and 330 ‘series points’ respectively; 4th to 6th will get 270, 220 and 180 points. Points continue to be awarded down to 30th position.

Why the change?
The main aim of the trial is to try and overcome some of the variance between comp sets. For example, previously you could have scored less if the comp set was ‘hard’, whereas now, you’ll receive the same points for finishing, say 5th, on an easy set or a harder set..

Its actually hard to explain in written form, so if you don’t understand, ask a member of the crew!

The power! o-o

 

Attacking The Blocs

Oh my, those blocs! To quote a very good friend of mine, Mr. James Potter: “This set was a hard one indeed, so don’t be disheartened if your score wasn’t very high, it was nails!!!”

Strong, powerful, tough! But you guys absolutely nailed them regardless. A personal favourite is the particularly voluminous bloc on the DMM Comp Wall opposite the Hightanic! Mainly because its very pretty looking, I haven’t had an opportunity to actually boulder it yet, I get the feeling its a toughie.

Wrap Up For Round 1

Well, as you may be aware, we’re now looking at the beginning of a new league season! So this round is the first of 6, and you need to compete in 3 to be in with a chance of making it to the finals!

Our next round will be set by Guy Copland & Friends, on May 25th! Guy is an excellent setter, so look forward to seeing what he build on that wall for the round 😉
