Climb Newcastle News: Winter Bouldering Series Overall Results

Winners 2008/2009

It was a fantastic finale to our 2008/2009 Winter Bouldering Series last night with another superb turn out and an exhilarating atmosphere as the final results were decided for this year's event.

As the popularity of the competition has grown, with over 200 competitors making up the final placings, we have had competitors from further and further afield. Of particular note in the vets category, Tim Carruthers came across from Cumbria to get an outstanding score and win on the night. Fortunately for Martin Waugh with three strong results in previous rounds and another one this time round, his 1st place overall was secure. In this very competitive category Steve Crowe came through to take 2nd ahead of Russell Lovett in 3rd. In the ladies vets, Ali McDonald finished strongly to take the series title ahead of Ann Cranke and Sue Birtwistle.

It was more visitors, this time from across the border, in Tom Charles Edwards, Mark McQuade and Will Atkinson who came closest to challenging Micky Page in 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively on the night. But Micky has shown his quality over the series, climbing all 35 problems once again and completing his set of 50 problem wins! Perfect Symmetry Michael Troy showed that consistency was everything taking 3rd place overall while Nigel Callender put in another fine result to take 2nd. It was Micky, who creeped over 1000 points, who become the series winner. In the women's it was all to play for, with Karin Magog pushing Katie Rowe write to the end. Katie taking 1st overall, with Karin second and Libby Barrow in 3rd.

In the juniors there was no change in the girls category with Bethany Walton 3rd, Eleanor Cranke 2nd and Kate Watson winning overall. Micky CollectsIn the boys Ali Pow didn't even need to turn up to win, impressive scores in the first 3 rounds kept him on top, whilst Sam Brannigan took second place and Jamie Naden third overall.

So that's it...4 rounds, 140 problems, 200 competitors later and the names of our 6 winners will be inscribed onto the Winter Bouldering Series trophies for 2008/09. Well done and thank you to everyone who entered and made it such a memorable series of events. Now it's time to get training for next year!
