Hey again everyone!
Over the weekend I attended one of the craziest competitions of all time, the Yank N’ Yard in Albuquerque!
First of all, props to Lance Hadfield on the setting, he truly is amazing and should definitely be setting at the highest levels of competition!
Now down to business! On Friday evening there was a redpoint qualifier round for the open competitors. The men and women had 10 problems to choose from, their top 6 were scored. Leaving the redpoint round I was in 1st place.
Finals took place on Saturday night where a 5 on, 5 off format was used between 3 problems. To say these problems were creative would be a huge understatement, they were insane! I have never climbed on so many volumes in my life and wish that the features they used were available in my gym!
After getting a killer pump from all of the problems, I ended up placing 4th. I had a lot of fun attending my first Yank ‘N Yard and plan on attending in the coming years, they did an amazing job!
Next on the agenda is Psychedelia, the blacklight climbing competition in Boulder this coming weekend, more updates soon!
