Shane Messer, other route setters, and the staff put up a great sport comp that I think deserved more attention than they got. The gym is pretty awesome, up there with Rockville Earthtreks and Movement in Boulder. They even had live streaming and a gym full of something over a 100 people just to watch! So, all you competitors out there, the "Ring of Fire" will be a big comp to watch out for as they promise to come up with even more money for top 5 (!!!) finishers!
Check out the results and links to some videos my dad got of people climbing in the finals:
|1. Alex “sock” Johnson||1. Sasha Digulian|
|2. Daniel Woods||2. Kasia Pietras|
|3. Vasya Vorotnikov||3. Isabelle Faus|
|4. Josh Levin||4. Nadya Vorotnikova|
|5. Nicholas Millburn||5. Melanie Messer|
Central Rock Gym even made their own highlights of the comp!!!
Also, LT11 decided to give an aspiring competitor a closer look at what he or she can expect from National Championships finals! Here’s a closer RAW video from USA Sport Nationals!
