Blokfest – Westway Climbing Centre, London

Blokfest – Westway Climbing Centre, London

This morning we got up early and drove to London to enter the Blokfest bouldering competition at the Westway climbing centre. When we arrived there was a big queue at registration, but eventually we got a t-shirt and score sheet. I warmed up with my brother Oscar and went straight onto the first problem as it was the easiest. It was a traverse, I have never competed in a competition with a traverse before. I completed all the problems in…

Goody Bag from Nihil and Mad Rock

Goody Bag from Nihil and Mad Rock

  On Thursday in Boulders academy Michelle brought me a Mad Rock pad for outdoor bouldering and a bag of t-shirts, vest and trousers from Nihil and Mad Rock – my new sponsors. I was really pleased with their stuff. It was so comfortable and I have already tried out the clothes in Boulders. The trousers are stretchy and have loads of pockets making them awesome for climbing in. I love the t-shirts too because they fit really well unlike…

British Speed Climbing Championships (BSCC) Sheffield 2014

First place The night before the competition we found out that it didn’t start until 5 so we didn’t have to get up so early. When we did get up we had breakfast in the hotel and went down to watch the paraclimbing final. It was really inspirational to see them climb the routes that I had in the lead championship the day before. The seniors still had to climb their final routes before the speed climbing started. They were…

British Lead Climbing Championships (BLCC) Sheffield 2014

British Lead Climbing Championships (BLCC) Sheffield 2014

Second place. I went to Sheffield on Thursday 2nd October to compete in the BLCCs on Saturday and the BSCCs on Sunday. We stayed in the Premier Inn overnight as usual and on Friday had a lie in before going to Awesome Walls to have a look at the route setting and have a quick climb. When we went into the centre the walls weren’t as high as I remembered and the competition wall wasn’t as scary as I thought…
