Time for a round up of some media and thoughts on the 3rd comp round.
Although a little quieter, Round 3 was special in a number of ways.
- We had Paul Bennett in to get some great shots.
- I took some shakycam footage.
- All the bouldering walls were completely stripped.
- Most of the bouldering circuits were rejigged – (there’s now blacks in Level 3. Flouro’s are back for Level 2)
We also gave out another £60 worth of flash problem prizes, two more pairs of FiveTen boots, and two more £10 vouchers for CragX.
In terms of the league, Dawid Skoczylas is close to running away with it, with his nearest contender 50 points behind.
“Of course the final round can mess all this up, as it’s the best 3 out of 4 rounds that gives a contender their final score.”
For the females, Diane Merrick seems well ahead, especially now close contender Emma Twyford is Wales bound and won’t be in the final round.
Then in the Juniors, Jack Shaw and Hannah Wilson have put in consistent performances to get to the top of their categories; with Jack currently placed 6th overall. Pretty good going.
Of course the final round can mess all this up, as it’s the best 3 out of 4 rounds that gives a contender their final score.
The next and final round will not only sort the league out into winners, and not-so-winners, but we’ll also have the last flash problem prize up for grabs. And, well, it’s the final round, so, it’s gonna be good……
p.s. If you’ve not been to a Foundry comp this season, then 13th of February is your last chance! They’ve been awesome.
