The Canadian regional bouldering 2014 - Hans Christian Montenegro

The Canadian regional bouldering 2014 - Hans Christian Montenegro
June 11, 2014 - 

The regional bouldering was at altitude Gym. The competition format was 5 minutes “in” and five minutes “out” for five problems. The isolation zone started too early (6:45am). Generally, I think that is a good idea to start early in order to finish early too, but at 6:45 is too much. Also, I was the second climber for starting the problems then I did not have enough time to warm up properly. I only did some travers and two minutes later it was my turn for the first problem.

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...

Comp Season: Understanding the Importance of Failure - Josh Levin

Comp Season: Understanding the Importance of Failure - Josh Levin
February 26, 2014 - 

With ABS Nationals just having come to a close, I want to address a subject most people are keen to avoid: failure. Failure is something that we avoid at all costs in all aspects of life, let alone competition climbing. However, I believe there are many important lessons to be learned from failure, especially when it comes to dealing with high-pressure situations such as in climbing competitions. This past month and a half, I have had the opportunity to compete in a major pro-level bouldering competition on east coast 6 weekends out of 7. So far, almost every...

Strong Season Continues - Eric Sethna
January 09, 2014 - 

The season continues! I was recently in Vancouver to climb at yet another comp in the string of Tour de Bloc and sanctioned competitions planned for the 2013/14 season. For the New Year, I’ve relocated back to Waterloo, Ontario to finish my degree and move onto the post-graduation phase of my life. Since I was back home in Banff, Alberta for my Co-op term, I’ve had the benefit of being all across Canada for the competition season this year. First of all, it’s great to see a thriving competitive scene all across the country. Competitions bring together so many...
