The Atmosphere

The first round of this seasons Winter Bouldering League went off with a bang! 50 of you lovely people turned up to crank as hard as you could and my oh my did you crank! Before the round started we were overwhelmed with the comments on how pysched people were for the Winter Bouldering League! That certainly showed with how everyone climbed!

Attacking The Blocs

There was no holding anyone back in the first round of Winter Bouldering League. League regulars and newbies came down to give the fresh set a good seeing too. There where so many competitors, climbers had to wait patiently to get a go at certain blocs! Alot of you guys complemented on how the blocs looked and agreed that some of them are deceptively hard and visa versa! The staff favourite was the blue going through the Enigma volumes in middle of the Xcult Comp Wall. Not too hard if you got the body positioning right, taking it to basics which we always like. ‘Basic but hard’ as Yann would say.

Wrap Up For WBL Round 1

All in all a cracking night with alot of people coming in super pysched to get on some comp blocs!
