Alberta Comps: Holowach, Weber Win Rowdy Bolder

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.

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.
