Canadian Sean McColl climbed his way to the win in a neck-and-neck final round.
The 2014 Psicobloc Masters took place at Park City, Utah on Fri. Aug. 8 and delivered a jaw-dropping evening of entertainment.
Climbers went head-to-head on 17-metre routes. Both the men’s and women’s involved big, dynamic movement which encouraged speed and visually-pleasing dynos.
Sasha Digiulian, who won last year for the women, did not make it to the semi-finals this year. The women’s winner was 16-year-old Clair Buhrfeind from Texas, in second was Delaney Miller who placed second in 2013.
It was McColl who gave the memorable performance with a number of dynos to edge out last year’s second place winner Daniel Woods to win for the men.
It should be noted that two Canadian-born climbers have won Psicocomp. Digiulian, who is now American, was born in Canada, and McColl, who lives abroad, is from Canada’s West Coast.
