Army Competition Boulders 2010

Boulders in Cardiff was the venue last Thursday and Friday for the Army Mountaineering Association 2010 sport climbing championships.
Rich Mayfield and Olly Noakes taking full advantage of the rest, after the "Skymaster" style start, moving and suspended volumes which formed a 6m roof, then a further 10m of pumpy climbing on good holds which only enabled 4 competitors to top out. 

The final was even longer, with quite possibly the longest run-out of any indoor wall right at the end of the route. Bargin! With a 10m roof on two suspended volumes at the start, Andy Long's route setting took full advantage of the Boulders Wall to produce some very out-landish climbs.

With over 200 personel attending this is one of the best event on the AMA calendar. The Orange House sponsored this event and we're looking forward to seeing the winners out in Spain for some tufa-tugging-tastic fun!
