With 6pm arriving sooner than foreseen, the Round 2 Winter Bouldering League was on, with competitors keen to bring their A game… With La Sportiva and Petzl, (courtesy of Lyon Equipment) on hand, casing boot demos and equipment demonstrations the night was set to be a cracker.
The night kicked off with competitors eagerly walking round the blocs, looking for those all important flash attempts. The easier grades were looking to be very droppable, so the categories were in for a slight mix up; Yann and Evie had brought a unique style this round with a well rounded set of problems. Throughout the evening we saw great attempts on the funkier looking blocs, as well as some great encouragement/ heckling from the crowds!
With the evening rounded off with a great demonstration from Neil Gresham and Roger from Lyon Equipment, on dynamic belaying, the route climbers got something out of the night as well! A great evening all round and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
WBL Round 2 Results are now available here…..
Don’t forget Round 3 is now the 29th January 2015, so come on in and get training to keep the psyche through December - happy training everyone!
