Competition at Horizon Roc - Hans Christian Montenegro

 
Competition at Horizon Roc - Hans Christian Montenegro
 
January 12, 2014 - 
 

This was the second competition from the new session. The competition was at Horizon Roc. In my opinion, this is a nice gym with a different style of climbing. This time, the problems were not very hard for your fingers but you should have more balance and body tension.

There were 43 climbers in the open category and 50 problems in the qualifying round. After three hours of climbing, I completed six problems in the top 10. This score put me in the fourth place in the finals.

Then, I rested in the finals isolation.

There were four problems for finals. The first problem was easy with a jump start dyno. I did it without a problem. The second problem was longer than the first one and I did it as well. The third problem was the hardest one and I got the bonus (I realized at the end that I had the wrong beta for this problem). The fourth problem was a very good problem. You did not need pure strength, but a good body position and the right beta. I did not get the bonus because I ran out of time. I found the right beta in my last try.

I received second place in the competition. I learned that I need to improve my ability for reading problems. This will be my next training target (reading with memory, feeling and beta).

Thanks for reading!
