2010 Nor'Easter Report from Alex Johnson

2010 Nor'Easter Report from Alex Johnson
 
September 28, 2010 -  Alex Johnson    
 

This past weekend I was at the Nor'Easter event in Lincoln, NH. Now, I've been to a few events before, many of them at an international level, and I must say that I have standards for being impressed. I was impressed at the Nor'Easter. Out of the three competitions on the Unified Bouldering Championships circuit Unified Bouldering Championships, the final stop stands out as not only the best of the three, but one of the best US competitions I've done.

 

It was well-organized, the problems were great, the people were fantastic. (Aside from the crowd--come on spectators, we athletes need a little love!!) I've also heard from many sources that the live video feed was superb. The venue where the competition and the live music took place has been compared to Vail Village, where the famous Teva Mountain Games are held.

Wearing the new BlackWings, I managed to come up from behind and pull out a win, but the other Five Ten Athletes Francesca Metcalf, Angie Payne, and Natasha Barnes were close behind!

Team Five Ten definitely stepped up to represent! I had a lot of fun at the Nor'Easter and I'm looking forward to returning again.

For a more detailed description of the weekend, check out Angie Payne's Five Ten Blog.
