Last weekend saw the finals of the Australian Bouldering Championships which should have been held as part of the xsportgames at Olympic park in Sydney. However due to ESPN being a little protective of their xsports brand, the event was cancelled at the 11th hour. Thankfully, SICG at Villawood stepped up and offered the use of their facilities to hold the event. There was a great turnout with competitors travelling from WA and Tasmania to compete. There were strong performances put in by many but the womens open event was dominated by an on form Sam Berry who flashed all but one problem (if my memory serves me correctly). The mens title was taken home by Callum Hyland with Ben Cossey and Tom Farrell hot on his tail.
Big thanks to Rob & Carlie for another successful event and also to Petzl and 5.10 for the prizes
