Noah Ridge Reports on SCS Nationals stone summit

 
Noah Ridge Reports on SCS Nationals stone summit
 
July 20, 2010 -  Noah Ridge    
 

I just got back from the SCS youth national championship at Stone Summit in Atlanta GA, I had a great time at nationals. I competed in sport only, in male youth A. At nationals there is a three round format with a flash format qualifier and an onsite format semifinal and final. The comp is spread out over 4 days so, on Thursday I had my first qualifying route and then my second on Friday. I tied for third place for the qualifying round, moving on to semifinals. On Saturday the semifinal round took place and then I placed 7th in the semifinals, moving back after I missed a huge sideways dyno halfway up the route.

 

On Sunday the finals took place in the morning. On the final route I did better coming in 6th overall. There was a good lineup of Five Ten athletes at the podium with Julian Bautista in first and Alex Fritz in 5th in youth A. Now I'm back to training for the upcoming bouldering season.

Also I recently took a trip to spearfish canyon in the black hill of South Dakota, it was five day trip. I went with a few other members from team vertical endeavors in St Paul MN, we went to lots of different areas of spearfish and other areas including the VC .Some of my favorite sends in spearfish included:

Trickle 5.13a second go

Battle Cry 5.12c flash

Steep and cheap 12d/13a second go
