Bouldering competitions are high-energy and rowdy events. The Nov. 10 competition at Bolder was no different.
Some of Alberta’s most familiar names in comp climbing were out, such as Sethna siblings Eric and Elise, Eva Thompson, Dexter Bateman and more.
That feeling when you see there's 3 seconds left on the clock and your first impulse is to lunge for the finish with all limbs‼️It was so humbling to climb amongst a densely strong field yesterday! After looking forward to it for years, I had an absolute ball at my first open finals💃💃• • Thanks for the snazzy pic & vid @joshmuller, and to Bolder Climbing for the snazzy comp! • • • @sattvaclimbing #sattvaclimbing #sendandinspire #sattvaclimbingathlete #climbing #bouldering #climb
Bolder is Calgary’s newest gym, until the massive Calgary Climbing Centre’s new gym opens near the COP, and caters to both new and experienced boulderers. The problems are always engaging interesting and the atmosphere fun and familiar.
Jason Holowach and Alyssa Weber, both with a number of podium tops in the past, took first in Open for Male and Female. The next Alberta comp is at Calgary Climbing Centre’s Chinook location on Nov. 25.
