Insight on SCS Divison 1 2010

 
Insight on SCS Divison 1 2010
 
June 19, 2010 -  Lisa Chulich    
 

From narrowing down 9 states to 20 athletes, each category now has 6 athletes remaining to represent their division at SCS 2010 Nationals. Last weekend ClubSport’s 60tf walls hosted the SCS 2010 Division 1 Championships in Tigard, OR. The Pacific North West came out strong this year with over 20 of us earning bids to Nationals next month in Atlanta, GA. Among these strong performances both Allie and Jessie Warren placed in the top 3 of their categories, along with 5.10’s athlete Alex Fritz who crushed sport with a 2nd place finish and won speed.

 

This year a flash format was used for the qualifying round, which was both beneficial and torture for the waiting athletes. Being able to watch other competitors on the routes aided athletes with the advantage of beta, but also easily psyched out those who had wavering confidence.

The routes were well set this year. I was psyched to finally get on the steep prowl for my 2nd qualifier. Taking advantage of the format, I observed a crucial heelhook stance for a clip, and then relaxed knowing it was time to bust out my Dragons. While skeptical leaving my beloved Galileos on the ground, I will never regret wearing the Dragons as they dominated on the steep face.

Overall the comp was a wonderful chance to get on some quality routes while surrounded by a supportive group of people.
