SUMMER BOULDERING LEAGUE | ROUND 6 & GRAND FINAL

Contents:

The Atmosphere

Rob Napier, Tom Smith and Guy Copland had the whole squad zone and comp wall to go mad with; setting some awesome blocs for round 6 and the Grand Final. The big red tarp was out keeping the final problems under wraps. That didn’t stop the competitors going hard at the blocs this round! The pinks where out and about round the centre, with the squad zone having an awesome array of comp and old school style problems. A good sized crowd attended round 6, with some of the top ranked climbers wisely giving this round a miss to save their energy for the grand final.

We’d recommend not chewing on the volumes, they can be rather gritty…

 

Attacking The Blocs

What a range of blocs! The boys really did pull out all the stops for the final round, creating such a range of challenging problems all over the centre. The squad zone was quiet to start with on the night, but quite rightly so. Some dual textured volumes made an appearance, which spat off some of the regulars, Benjy found quite quickly precision was rather critical on this bloc. With the grand final the next day some of the competitors didn’t know whether to take it easy and guarantee their place or go at it ‘hell on wheels’, but I tell you what there where some super determined younger climbers, including the Squad who where out in force!

Grand Final

The Grand final crept upon us this weekend, but boy did Rob Napier, Tom and Guy set some absolute cracker blocs! Throwing in some gnarly moves as well as those beautifully technical ones as well. The Summer Bouldering League Grand Final ran with 4 blocs for both male and female competitors using ‘4plus’ rules during their climbing time. Some tense moments in the comp with a few competitors dropping penultimate moves, M1 proved to be particularly difficult with a classic slabby, no handed traverse. F3 proving to be the fight or flight for the females, big, burly powerful moves for the finalist females! Our special photographer for the evening was Mr Sam Pestell from our youth squad team, so a big thanks to the little dude for getting behind the lense.
