This past Saturday, January 15th, 2011, the Stone gardens Climbing Team attended the ABS12 Regional Championships at Vertical Club in Tacoma, WA.
The comp. was held in the Onsight format with 3 boulder problems per category for a Qualifying and then a Final round. Only the top competitors (between 5 and 10) in each category advanced to the Finals. There are a wide variety of walls from slabby to 70 degree overhang. Everyone packed a quiver of shoes to plan for anything the setters could throw at them. Almost all of the girls have the Anasazi LV and the boys have the regular Velcro Anasazi and several have a pair of Team shoes and Dragons for the steep stuff.
