Competition Climbing 2013 - Greig Seitz

This year I have been focusing on climbing in competitions as well as climbing outside.  Since I can still compete in the ABS youth series, I have been trying to stay motivated to train for gym climbing.  It is hard to maintain a sense of motivation to climb inside while the temps have been so good outside.

In January, I went to the ABS Youth Divisional Championship in Tucson, Arizona.  During this competition, I met many awesome climbers.  The excitement level was high with all my friends and competitors supporting each-other.  I wasn’t feeling very well that weekend in Arizona, but I ended up placing fourth.  Placing that high at divisionals secured me an invitation to compete in ABS Nationals.

After this competition, I competed at the Spot Bouldering Gym.  During the qualifying round, I climbed very well.  The problems were extremely well set with big holds and big dynamic moves.  This is how the Spot set during the qualifying round.  I climbed well enough on these problems to make finals.

The finals problem was great.  The beginning of the problem was slightly technical. Halfway through the problem, I faced out toward the crowd.  This led into an all points off dyno.  After the dyno, I climbed into some more powerful climbing.  I ended up placing third in this competition under Daniel Woods and Dave Graham. 

I am now focusing my time and attention on training for ABS Youth Nationals, which will be held in Colorado Springs next month.  I have been doing most of my training at Miramont Lifestyle Fitness in Fort Collins.  I look forward to climbing on the well set boulder problems at the next competition.
