Climb Newcastle News: WBS Round 4 Results


The 4th round of the Winter Bouldering Series last night produced our best ever turn out with 153 competitors enjoying the 35 problems.

Some time in the mid-afternoon, and after considerable effort, Nigel Callender took the 50 cash problem (check out the video on Youtube) and went on to win the men's event, making him firm favourite to win the series. Karin Magog came out top in the ladies and topped off a good day by walking away with a Snap bouldering mat in the raffle.

In the juniors, Sam Brannigan looks favourite to win the series if he can put in a good score in the final round whilst Sidonie Graham's solid score (albeit behind Beth Walton on the night) looks set to put her top on 12th March.

And in the vets categories Ali McDonald and Steve Crowe have emerged strong favourites for the series, although Steve had to settle for second place on the night, outplayed by 3 points by an impressive Mick Gardener.

See you all at the series climax on 12th March and, with photos to follow, here are last night's scores on the doors...
