Climb Newcastle News: Climb Newcastle @ CWIF


Right, I've been on holiday for a week so we've a lot of gossip to catch up on.

First up, we mentioned last week that we had taken a team to the Climbing Works International Festival (CWIF) in Sheffield...

It turns out our late substitution of guest Climb Newcastle team member Nigel Callender (winner of our Winter Bouldering Series) for sick Andy Earl worked a treat. Nigel was a good replacement in more ways than one, executing the tantrum of the day after slipping off a final move in the qualifiers, and also climbing very well to reach the semi-finals in his first international event. Good effort Nige!
