Climb Newcastle News: Axis Winter Series Final Results


Yesterday the 2013/14 Axis Winter Bouldering Series concluded, with a big turn out for the final round.

The timing of the fifth one day event, a day before the Climbing Works International Festival meant that some of the big leaders were absent, choosing this as their round to drop, and no doubt with nervous journeys down to Sheffield on Friday hoping that the setting would be tough.

And tough it was - perhaps the toughest of the series, with funk galore and many footholds 'accidently' used as handholds.

So here we are - congratulations to Nina Harvie-Clark, ending Sid's 4 years of domination in the junior girls. Chris Orrick, who has risen up through the juniors to take top spot this year. Alison Monks who retains the adult females for the 3rd year running. Joe Wilson who retains for his second series win in the adult males. Sian Oakley and Paul Smith, winning their respective vets, and Gary Brosnan snatching the iron-man (supervets) category from Tommy Smith.

Here's looking forward to 14/15 and more imminently to ASBO 14 on May 9th. Well done everyone and thanks for attending another storming winter series: Often mimicked, never replicated.
