I got into town tuesday prior to the event and managed to do a little boulder climbing before dark. Man was it hot but still climbable. I didnt really climb much after that. I wanted to be fresh for the event on saturday. My personal goal was to compete in the Sport and Boulder comp. It turned out that most of the boulders were wet when saturday rolled around and I managed to squander all morning away by looking for dry boulders. Everywhere I went was wet except two lines at Fayetstation and the Hawks nest boulders. sooooo, I ended up climbing at the nest for the afternoon and didnt have a chance to compete in the sport comp. Logistical failure but I had a lot of fun. I apologize for not having all the results for mens and woman but here is what I know went down in the Mens open categories, Matt Wilder won the Open Trad category, Nick Duttle won the Open Sport category and I won Open Boulder category.. Later at the Petzl and Five Ten booths we managed to have a strong showing for the Shake weight comp which combined skill and prowess to determine who would walk away with a new grigri or pair of shoes.. In the end two victors arose managing to take their spoils but not before chugging two full beers.
