2012 Count Crankula Comp - Summary + Results
With 90+ new problems and over 100 participants my only complaint about last night was not being able to climb as much as I would have liked. An average wait time between single efforts on a problem ranged from 15-20 minutes. That said I didn't climb a bad boulder. Setters and staff if you're reading this great job and thanks for all your hard work!
Lib and I both competed in the Open category and I was really psyched to find that the field was stacked for such a small local comp. Ethan made an unexpected appearance as well as strong local climbers like Mike, Keller, Ed, Bill and even a few climbers from California. It was great to session on problems with this crew and the motivation was through the roof.
Final scoring consisted of 5 climbs totaled into one point value. I was really happy with my performance flashing a few V8ish problems along with quick sends of a V9 and a V9/10 (best guess on grades based on their point values). I ended up taking 3rd place surrounded on either end by very strong climbers.
The big news of the night was Lib's complete domination of the advanced Women's catagory. I think the picture speaks for itself.
Again big thanks to Red Rock Climbing Center, Desert Rock Sports, setters, staff, and everyone who came out to make it an awesome evening.
