Chelsea Piers Comp Report from Alex Sosa Manon
 
December 13, 2010 -  Alex Sosa Manon    
 

This weekend I went over to the West Side of NYC.  To a place called Chelsea Piers.  They were holding the Chelsea Piers Bouldering Cup.  I showed up and there were about 5 people. All my friends, so they waited about an extra 30 minutes to start climbing,  and then about 20 other people showed up.  At first I was the only one in Open category, then Ivan Greene and a couple other climbers showed up for Open.  The prize was a Jet Blue ticket to anywhere. So I was psyched.  I started climbing and 2 hours in I had completed more than 5 problems, more than I needed. My fingers were hurting so bad, my tips were raw.  So I handed in my scorecard.

 

I grabbed a bite to eat for a while and then headed back for the results. Ivan Greene came in 1st and won a Jet Blue ticket, and I came in 3rd!!!

Hopefully Hueco soon!!! (or somewhere)
