Tour de Bloc, Centre Escalade Vertrical 2014 - Hans Christian Montenegro

 
Tour de Bloc, Centre Escalade Vertrical 2014 - Hans Christian Montenegro
 
March 09, 2014 - 
 

This competition was at Vertical Gym in Montréal. There were 67 participants which is a good number of climber for a competition. I saw some friends from Toronto, Ottawa and USA (Josh Larson).

The competition had 64 problems for the qualifying round. I found the qualifying round too hard for me. The problems were very powerful, with big movements and they were not very technical. I climbed until 15 second before the end. After three hours of climbing, I completed six problems (between number 64 and 53). This score put me in the 13th place. Then, I did not do finals. This was sad but it gives me more motivation for training.

I saw the finals like audience and it was a nice experience. I realized how finals climbers are focus on their problems and how they don’t care too much about the public. The finals problems were interesting and a good show. Here again we had some big and powerful movements. I believe that Canadian competitions start to be too much influenced by the American style. The only thing I can do, it is train more this kind of movements and be ready for this style. I am happy and motivated for the next competition.

Thanks for reading!
