ROUND 1 | Winter Boulder League




Wrap Up






The Atmosphere

Rolling into our first round of the Winter Bouldering League, Dave Barrans gave us such a range of blocs there where many bitter sweet stories between the climbers. In general it was expressed that this opening round has been a tough one, no better way to warm yourself up on these cold months again by pulling hard under some competition pressure.

The Youth Squad where out in force as usual alongside all you beautiful regulars.

Attacking The Blocs

Mr Barrans, 2 times The Big Flash Winner, put up some hard as nails blocs for this opening round, giving the crew a hint when het set “its not about campusing in my sets”. I think it was generally agreed that there was a good range of problems making use of feet and the hands.

The spread of problems throughout the Squad and Comp wall meant there was plenty of space to dynamically get into positions but also meant there was a full variety of wall angles to work around.

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 4 before the grand final, and you need to compete in 3 to be in with a chance of making it to the finals!

The next set will be by the lovely bunch of Smith and friends ready for round 2 on the 28th December! Remember round 2 is taking place a few hours earlier than usual due to our Christmas opening times. Round 2 will therefore kick off at 2:00pm until 5:00pm with the centre closing ay 6pm.
