Woods, Digiulian Flash U.S. Nationals

Daniel Woods and Sasha Digiulian were the top American finishers at the SCS Open National Championship at Momentum gym in Sandy, Utah. The two climbers head the new U.S. sport climbing team, gaining access to international events.

Though Woods was the top American male, Norway’s Magnus Midtboe won the men’s competition by flashing the final route, along with Woods; Midtboe’s better performance on the two qualifying routes gave him the edge.
