Speed climbing comp 2013 Report & Results

This weekend we held our first speed-climbing competitions, with the open age-group on Saturday and the youth on Sunday.

The open event was great fun, with some close competition among the fairly small group of climbers. The four identical routes that we set up our 12m wall made for some epic final races!

Congrats to Rory Neilson for taking first place in the men’s catagory (and in the pull-up comp!) and to Jenny Pitcher for first place for the women!

KZN rock climbing speed competition 2013

On Sunday we had a fantastic turn-out, with just under 50 youth climbers taking part.

The kids loved this introduction into speed-climbing, which is arguably the most fun competition format. Again the climbers were very evenly matched in most of the age-groups, which made for some really exciting finals!

Looking forward to next years event already! Now it’s time to start setting new routes to get the gym back to normal!

Below are the results from the youth event.
