Test Your Core Results 2013 – The Edge, Halfmoon, NY
This was the comp I went to and it was a lot of fun. I got there early, watched the last hour of the youth comp and saw some strong climbing. A bunch of the youth climbers stuck around to watch the adult comp that followed which was awesome. Thanks for the support! The adult comp format was definitely a challenge for the climbers. We had 2 hours and our top 8 climbs were being counted. There were a lot of problems to work on and it wasn’t that crowded, so getting on the problems wasn’t a issue. That was nice, since it had been my biggest concern going into the comp. What ended up being the biggest challenge was the pressure to just keep climbing, since it felt like 2 hours was barely any time. I didn’t want to stop, take a break, get a snack, nothing. That really does not make for the best performance. I think there might have been a happy medium somewhere in there:) From my conversations with people, it sounded like others were struggling with this as well. Despite this, I was happy to walk away with 1st place for the women.

Also on Saturday were the WMCC Rendezvous outdoor comp and Share The Burn comp at PRG East Falls. I’ll post these results as soon as I have them.
