Toronto competition Report from Eva Pepin-Helie

 
Toronto competition Report from Eva Pepin-Helie
 
February 01, 2011 -  Eva Pepin-Helie    
 

After having three weeks off, during the Christmas holidays, it was time to pull on plastic again ! So My boyfriend and I took the car and drove 6 hours from Montreal to Toronto, for the Boulderz competition. We were not in top shape for that competition but no excuses it was time !

When you live in Québec, participating in competitions is pretty much the only way to stay motivated and in a good shape for the spring season, because everyone knows that summer is too warm and humid to stick on the rock.

 

The competition in Toronto was a good one. I think that this gym is great for bouldering! Even thought it is a small gym, and even if there is a limited amount of participants there is still a very good vibe. It was my first time at that gym and I found the problems where really well set and enjoyable.

I am proud of me for this comp ! There were many strong climbers there, especially young new climbers. One of them even tied with me for first place in qualifiers. So I new I had to work even harder than before. It paid off!!!
