  • Hi Everyone,

    So we all had a really good night at the Climbing Station on Tuesday. 15 people took part in the competition.

    Tony Bishopp stormed to an unassailable lead with 207 points, ending up 50 points in front of his nearest rival Adam Rembiasz who scored 154 points, just one point in front of Simon Perry. Suzi Imber was the first female climber with 125 points.

    In the speed climbing competition Andy Richards had set a fiendishly hard and complex route that Adam Rembiasz climbed the fastest in just 47.66 seconds some 5 seconds ahead of the nearest challenger Tony Bishopp with a time of 52.41 seconds. A big thank you to the Climbing Station for hosting the event and letting us use the upstairs room for refreshments after the event and to Zoe Pickering who helped to organise the event and handed out raffle tickets to the competitors. Hope to see you all next year for a bit of Pre-Christmas fun.
