Blokfest @ Stronghold 2017

Fresh off the back of my confidence-boosting return comp at the Oakwood boulder battle, I returned to my old friend Blokfest.

Somehow I managed to qualify in 1st place for the finals before getting a proper schooling from the all-around strongman and legend, Jim Pope.

I can feel my comp addiction returning….

Epic TV was there to report on the day and made a lovely summary video.

Oakwood Boulder Battle

No Comments News, Videos

Well, it had been a few years since I last competed so I decided it was time to try my hand and my new local wall was hosting it’s first major competition so I felt duty bound to attend!

I managed to navigate the qualification course OK qualifying well with some of the other big guns and surprised myself in the semi-finals doing 3/4 of the boulders and qualifying for the finals, far exceeding my expectations.

However, this is where all my current injuries/weaknesses and lack of practice were fully exposed. I still had great fun and the crowd were great. It really reminded me that I still love comps and had been missing them.
