By all accounts it seems as though the psicocomp out in Utah was a resounding success.  Those of you who read my post about the Toronto World Cup know that watching videos is a bit of a hassle for me.  I was actually able to see some of this comp live, since my husband and I were in the car for about 2 hours in the middle.  Then I watched the event in its entirety on replay a few days later.

Congrats to Sasha and Jimmy on their wins!  And props to everyone brave enough to take that fall!

I thought this comp was exciting and fun to watch.  It did an excellent job of showcasing each climber.  It was great to see climbers from all different disciplines of the sport come together at one event.  I would love to see this event take hold here in the US and be an annual stop in a series.  And while I think that there could be a future for this kind of comp, I don’t think it should replace the comps that we currently have in bouldering, speed or lead.  I think there is room for all of them and they each have something different to bring to the table.
