Horizon Roc Comp - Hans Montenegro

 
Horizon Roc Comp - Hans Montenegro

This competition was at Horizon Roc. I saw many good friends from other climbing gyms. And, the competition was well organized; we finished it early!

The Competition was only for open Category (no junior). Despite this, some good junior climbers were there in order to get more experience in the adults’ category. 

This time the show was not the best one. I realized that it is very important to have a good D.J. if you want a good show.

In 2012, I was the forerunner for the national competition (routes) at this gym. Then, I knew what was the level required for having a good result. Well, this competition had 20 open climbers. We had two routes to qualification and one for the finals. I did top in both qualification routes. These routes were interesting with a small roof and small dyno (power style).

The final route was a long one with a big roof. It had some solving problem parts but the main style of the route was resistance style. Then, I knew that I should climb fast.

I started the route with a weird feeling (I think that I was not enough warmed for it). The first movements were good until I arrived to a volume where I almost fell because I did not get the right body position. That moment was like to warn for me. After it, I just started to climb in natural mode, fast without over thinking. I almost finished the route but I fell three movements before the top because I was tired.

I won that competition. I am so happy for that result and I want to train more and more.

Thanks for watching and reading.
