Blokfest Round 3 – The Castle

No Comments News, Videos

As usual the highlight round of the season so far. A fantastic comp in probably the best centre in the South.

I had a wobbly qualification round getting through to the final in 5th (last possible) place but then came joint 1st in the final flashing 2/3 of the climbs. Unfortunately due to my wobblyness in the qualification I ended up 3rd overall.

Still great fun with an amazing atmosphere in the finals, next up Bristol.

Blocbuster 2014 – Nottingham Depot

No Comments News, Videos

I recently competed at a fantastic event up at the Depot Nottingham called Blocbuster. It was a really fun day with a 30 problem qualification tour and world cup style finals, with such a strong field it was super close but I managed to win both rounds and take the overall victory.

I’m rubbish at writing these blogs turning them more into diaries of self loathing so I recommend reading a great write up and report on UK Climbing here – 

I particularly enjoyed the “Dropped the clutch and engaged the hammer straight to the top” line :-)
