MEC Bouldering Nationals 2014 - Sebastien Lazure

MEC Bouldering Nationals 2014 - Sebastien Lazure
April 03, 2014 - 

It was the Canadian Bouldering Championships last weekend at Coyote Rock Gym in Ottawa. The organization of the comp decided to change the format and add a semifinal round only a week prior to the comp. This format change added a little pressure to everyone as only top 6 competitors would advance to finals letting no room for errors. It was a mental challenge, but I had prepare all season to be ready for that comp and I was feeling good. My main focus was to be able to get in the ”zone” to be able to climb...

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...

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...

Bouldering at Niagara Glen, Canada - Hans Christian Montenegro

Bouldering at Niagara Glen, Canada - Hans Christian Montenegro
November 07, 2013 - 

Niagara Glen, a perfect trip for you! This amazing place is ideal for a trip. You will find different kind of rocks (volcanic, granite, etc). Also, you will find different levels s problems; from V0 to V12. If you have a V4-V7 level this is a perfect place for you because you will find many problems on this level. All the problems have something to teach to you. If you like to climb more with real holds this is the right place because the problems have real pinches, crimps and slopers (It is not only about grip but movements)....

Porcupine's Pine V7, Luskville, Quebec - Hans Christian Montenegro

Porcupine's Pine V7, Luskville, Quebec - Hans Christian Montenegro
October 07, 2013 - 

This problem was the first one that I did on my trip to Gatineau (Luskville). Gatineau is a wonderful town. A town built into a park. It was marvelous to live into a park for a month. Also, I had never seen a real sportive town. Everyone practice a physical activity like Kayak, bike, jogging, trekking and climbing. Everyone is a healthy citizen. I got this place grace to Jonathan Audy. He is a climber that has been developing a lot of new boulder in different places (Gatineau and Lac-Brome). The Porcupine's Pine is a nice problem if...

The Power of the Powerless V10 - Hans Montenegro

The Power of the Powerless V10 - Hans Montenegro
September 06, 2013 - 

This problem is an important realization for me. I tried it in the summer. So, the weather was too hot and the holds were not good at all. Also, I could not crimp with my left hand because my finger pulley was not in shape. All those elements have done this V10 harder than I expected it.I tried "The power of the powerless" four sessions. The first day, I did not understand anything. The first move was too hard but at the end of the day, I understood that the movement needed a special body position (compress but turning...
