For the second time, the Western Cape is host to the biggest indoor bouldering competition in South Africa: the 2015 National Boulder Series Championships.
With the incredible buy-in and support of South Africa’s largest Indoor Climbing Gym, namely CityROCK Indoor Climbing Gym in Observatory, Cape Town, the stage was set to witness 73 competitors from across the country take part in this year’s National Boulder Event.
Each province was allowed up to 5 competitors per each of the 12 categories. The format of the event included semi-final rounds on the Saturday 11th April 2015 and the final rounds on Sunday 12th April 2015.
While in isolation on the Saturday and Sunday, climbers could be found lounging around in the cool breeze coming in through into the isolation area, fondly known as Area 51 by the local CityROCK clients.
