VARSITY 2011 Results

Victory went to Sheffield with a score of 496 against Hallams 329, infact Sheffield too a clean sweep of the top three overall scores (Martin, Alex and Daniel) and the top female score (Rosemary). A big well done to all the competitors, especially Ruth as the only female competitor from Hallam.

Problems had been set at a range of grades to try and make a fun competition for everyone including those who aren't natural boulderers, but with some fiendish ones to split up the top end climbers. All climbers were also entered into a raffle with the chance to win prizes sponsored by CragX.
