Climb Newcastle News: NEUCC Results







A great turn out and super atmosphere made the North East University Climbing Championships held this Saturday at Climb Newcastle a huge success.

Students from across the region, and beyond, came to crimp, dyno, mantle and crotch-thrust (right) their way up 25 problems. Well done to the winners, Nigel Callender (Newcastle University) and Harriet Ridley (Durham University) who took home the individual trophies with 2 fine scores, Nigel meeting the now rather personal challenge set down by the setting team of Graham, Dudink and Earl, with a full house score of 250, the first time he'd took maximum points in a Climb Newcastle competition. Nige's team with Sian Oakley and Ben Wilson took the huge team trophy and thanks to generous event sponsors not many went home empty handed.

Particular thanks to Scarpa who will be kitting out all of our winners in their Instinct/Vapour range of shoes, and to Christine Hall for her organisational skills.

Well done everyone who took part, more pics to follow but meanwhile here's the results in full...
