The Atmosphere

The December Edition of ‘That Boulder Comp’ fell on Friday the 13th this time, and nearly 60 of you lovely people braved the superstition. We had faith though nothing would happen with the crowd that turned up Friday! High spirits with some high scores proved us right with alot of you crushing the blocs! Maddi did an awesome job keeping everyone fed with the loaded Fries that night as well! Some of you forgot to fill out the scores online, so just remember to be included within the official online scoring we need you to fill out the form onsite before handing in your paper scorecard. If you’re unsure come and chat to one of the reception team.

Attacking The Blocs

Being within that festive period Guy & Gilbert produced some bangers for the December Edition, some of the norm appeared and some far from the norm. The funny awkward bloc on the Tenaya Slab proved to produce some seriously funny facial expressions alongside some very interesting technique choices, not easy for the short or tall! Some more commiting dynos made an appearance too throughout the cave and squad wall with the massive Core ‘Alien Pod’ needing a committing move, unless your super flexible and got it statically like a couple of people. The pinch dyno within the cave threw a few people off, not much on those pinches at all as some of you found out! All in all a good but techincal set, with a low Top Gun score of 180 it was a interesting one to see were people would place!

Wrap Up For December Edition

It was a cracking night on the blocs for the December edition of ‘That Boulder Comp’, a slow steady stream of competitors came throughout the evening and everyone was in high spirits as usual. Many a happy face and many a giggle at some of the blocs, you guys can probably guess which one. Alot of competitors top gunned, which we know is an aim for a fair few of you regulars, the only logical next step now is to come and join in on the Winter Bouldering League Round 2 on the 27th December!
