Climb Newcastle News: Axis WBS Round 1

Here are the results from a cracking first round of the 2012/13 Winter Bouldering Series. It was a tough one with some technical walls, a star wars mantle, a huge dyno, some horrific volume hugging and plenty of more amenable problems, particularly for our new category of super-vets. Well done to the round 1 winners in particular, but there's a lot of work to do yet with 4 rounds to come. Remember best 4 of 5 count towards overall results. See you all on December 14th for round 2...

Image right: the crux problem at round 1, severe volume hugging with a terrifying last move, as yet only climbed by men's winner Joe Wilson.
