Foundry Bouldering Competition - Round 2

The round 2 comp was set at a slightly easier standard than round 1 seeing a few competitors flash all the problems in their chosen category. Three under 13's got full marks including James Waterhouse who then went on to get a respectable score in the recreational category.
As usual the problems set by Rob assisted by Matt,Tim, and Dan. The comp is sponsored by DMM who provided lots of kit which was handed out during the comp to those lucky 9 competitors who had their name pulled out of the chalk bag. Also given away were 2 pairs of Boreal boots and a CragX climbing shop voucher.
There is one more round to come on January 22nd. Again there will be lots of prizes to be won on the night.
Overall prizes for best 2 out of 3 scores are for 1st (3 month free entry voucher to The Foundry) and 2nd placed male/female ( 1 month free entry voucher to The Foundry) in each category.
