Team Asia Outdoors Takes Home Gold!
This past weekend, December 3, Asia Outdoors sent a team to VietClimb to participate in the Bouldering Competition Cup. Team members Travis Garner, Rob Lucking, Arjan Nekoie, and Leah Thomas competed in the daylong event transferring their outdoor climbing skills to plastic holds.
Competitors started the day with the first round of climbing, a period of 3.5 hours to try and solve 30 different boulder problems. Problems ranged from juggy overhung power moves to delicate smearing slab routes allowing climbers to stretch their skill range.
The final ten, five men and five women, those with the highest scores of the 60 competitors went on to face eight new boulder problems. Each had eight minutes to look at the problems and were given periods of three minutes to work on each climb.
Travis Garner breezed through the initial climbing and entered the finals with the highest men’s score! He flashed two of the four men’s problems, making them look easy, and won gold for the day! Rob, Arjan, and Leah also pulled in impressive climbs.
Congrats to all who participated, looking forward to next year’s competition!
