NCBS Comp – Coyote Rock Gym, Ottawa, ON
Cost: $5 + $10 day pass or membership to Coyote gym
Climbing: 6:00pm – 8:30pm
Categories: Open, Rec, Youth

This is the second comp in the National Capital Bouldering Series.  There is a cap on this event, so pre-registration is a good idea.  A unique format is used for this series, so make sure you know what’s going on before you get there.

I’ll post the review next week after all the comps!  Just a couple holiday comps after that and then it is time to get in the gym and train for a bit.

I’ll be competing in the Showdown and at Dark Horse.  Sunday I plan on being very tired and sore.  Merry Crushing everyone!
