The Atmosphere

The February Edition of 'That Boulder Comp' saw lots of old and new faces coming and giving the new blocs ago. This edition was set by James, Gilby and Luke allowing the chief, Guy, to save some skin and recover from setting earlier in the week. Everyone was in high spirits with the hot drinks flowing and loaded fries flying out of the kitchen. In total, we had just over 70 scorecards handed in and inputted online, with the age ranges being fairly broad as well! Always good to see climbers of all ages getting involved.

Smiles all round throughout the comp!

Attacking The Blocs

The picture says it all! Smiles on all the competitors throughout the evening is always a delight! The setting trio set a nice range of blocs, from pulling on pockets to some techy traverses and burly overhangs! There was truly something for everyone, having them throughout the centre meant that there wasn't too much congestion to get round the 30 blocs as well! Always nice having space, and minimal pressure from other climbers in comp mode! 

Wrap up for February Edition

Not a super easy set from the boys with a TopGun score of 191. Blocs where droppable in all aspects, but still enjoyable as noted by many a climber. Congrats to Emily Mortimer for taking the top spot throughout all the females and Oliver Purllant for the top spot throughout all the males. 

The next edition of That Boulder Comp will be the MASTERS ROUND! This is still open to anyone that wants to enter and will follow a similar format to the normal TBC Series, but with a GRAND FINAL at the end of the evening! There will be the top 20 male/female scorers battling it out on the XCULT Comp Wall in front of the awesome Highball crowd! This Masters Round shall be announced shortly so keep your eyes peeled on our socials for a release date!
