15 Dec 2008 Berghaus Bouldering League R2 Results

Friday night and R2 of the Berghaus Bouldering League saw yet another close competition with the Men's only being decided by 1 point. 25 problems and a big crowd meant it was a great night with alot of big efforts and big falls. Alot of the early excitement and eyes of many competitors were focused on the bonus special problem, that being unclimbed in the 1st round, now had a cash prize of £150 attached to it. This time Percy set an even longer volumes only problem with his favourite type of hold thrown in...a double jam on a roof.

Dave Barrans on the bonus cash problem

Across from Manchester, Dave Barrans came looking exclusively for the cash problem and after a few warm ups he went to work figuring out the beta. A fine effort took him to the penultimate hold but a rookie mistake of not taking a chalk bag cost him dear as he was dispatched off the sloping feature. After a long rest and another look at the finishing moves he set off again, sans chalkbag, and dispatched the final moves with aplomb. A fine effort and well worth the £150.comp r2 barrans2

4 Dec 2008 14:00 New Childrens Wall Topos

A couple of weeks ago we reset  the children’s boulders. There are now three mini circuits numbered around both boulders. The orange is the easiest followed by brown and then a hard green and pink spots circuit.

These are for children of all ages to test their technique and climbing ability and to offer a change to regular users of the wall. These problems should stay up for two months before being completley reset again. In the next week a couple more problems will be added on the slab to help those who can’t always reach the holds.

The topos are available to download here. These will add fun, focus and learning to your child’s climbing session. The topos included a tick list and various technical terms to learn and find on different problems.

2 Dec 2008 New Circuit Topo available to download

With the completion of the latest blue circuit we now have 9 full circuits plus one easy purple circuit on the main walls. You can download the new topo from here>>
