Sean McColl is missing the Canadian bouldering nationals and is competing at the Climbing Works Fest in the U.K.

McColl is a 12 time Canadian bouldering champion and won it last year. Watch the semis and finals below and the Canadian nationals qualifiers here.

Great qualifying session here at CWIF this morning. Started the morning a bit hesitant but quickly made work of boulder after boulder with my climbing team: @gelmanovrustam @melissaleneve & @gejostasa ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Managed to NOT slip or punt on any of the “easier” boulders, did two of the hardest boulders second try and tried the hard physical one dubbed “rainbow” twice with no send. Semi finals are tomorrow at 10am local, livestream in link bio! ⤴️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ?: @thecircuitclimbing ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @adidasterrex | @scarpana | @joerockheads | @verticalartclimbing | @flashedclimbing | @perfect_descent #verticalart #climbing #train #canada #instagood #picoftheday #photooftheday #athlete #igers #amazing #sports #fitspo #gymlife #power #fitfam #adventure #fitness #work #workhard #workout #strength #challenge #follow #ninja #gym #fun
