Climb Newcastle News: ASBO 14 Results


Climb Newcastle's 6th Annual Spring Boulder Open was held on Friday with one of the strongest field's yet providing a highly entertaining final.

Way over 200 competitors entered (200 t-shirts gone by 6:45pm!) and battled with 30 problems during the day. It was a tough set, with the new Holdz climbing holds and Scarpa volumes brutal on fingers, forearms (and the CN setting on the rest of you!). The difficulty was well reflected in the low scores and many not handing in their scorecards.

That said, most seemed to be having fun, and enjoying free massages (thanks Anna) and freebies from the Scarpa stand.

Dan Varian was the Scarpa representative handing out the goodies, and he found time to get the top score in the men's qualifiers, thanks to an impressive flash amongst others of the nails number 2 slab. Just behind him in qualification two regulars to the ASBO comps, Joe Wilson (2010 winner) and Nathan Phillips were joined by Sam Brannigan and another Cumbrian, junior Aidan Roberts.

In the girls Karin Magog (2009 winner) posted an impressive score to qualify ahead of Sidonie Graham, Joanne Quinan (two time winner in 2010 and 2011), former CN staff member Kate Watson and finalist from last year Ronnie Edwards.

At 9pm the finalists came out to a big crowd. The men opened with an entertaining volume between the legs - to a groove - to a big dyno. Dan flashed, with Joe, Nathan and Aidan completing on their second attempt. Dan's flash proved to be key as men's 2 and 3 eluded all of the competitors. Nathan in particular had a good couple of fingers around the finishing hold on men's number 2 but it wasn't to be.

The women started with an extremely difficult problem crossing the 20 degree wall. Sid was the only one to top in brilliant style. Sid, Karin and Joanne all completed the next 2, with Karin taking second place on attempts and Sid winning with a full set of tops to the delight of the crowd. At only 16 years old this will no doubt be the first of many ASBO titles!

A huge thank you to our sponsors, Scarpa, Holdz, Mark Savage who's photos will no doubt be brilliant (to follow) and Anna Stokoe who offered massage to many injured competitors! And a big thanks to everyone who came out to enter!
