HarroComp 01: Results and Scores

The very first HarroComp took place Friday 16th March and we were amazed at the large turnout. We had people travel from all over London and further afield with all happy with the fantastic problems, top music and free pizza (!!) throughout the evening.

The competition evening had 2 parts. A Fun part which was all about just that – a mix of easy and super weird problems that were set for anyone of any age or ability. The Main Comp had 35 problems set on the Competition wall by experienced route setters Percy Bishton, Rob Napier and Liam Lonsdale.

As a head IFSC routesetter with many years experience setting World Cups, you know to expect something ‘different’ from Percy but this creation was astounding. A hard technical red and an easier green that made up this stunning flower.

In this main competition we saw a lot of competitors utilising the massive comp wall space to try all the problems and enjoy the weird and wonderful blocs created for them. In the Mens our top 3 were Orrin Coley (1), Louis Parkinson (2) & Nathan Whaley (3). In the Womens the top 3 were Anna Soligo (1), Sabrina Scheacher (2), Tessa Bennett (3). Both Orrin and Anna won £100 cash on the night.

In the fun comp, the competitors got to play on a couple of one-night only problems such as the below:

We also gave away a load of other prizes and goodies for anyone taking part in either comp and there were certainly alot of happy climbers leaving after the comp ended at 9pm. We’d like to thank all the people who offered up prizes including FiveTen, Scarpa, Tenaya, Beta Climbing, MFB Osteopathy and Catalyst Climbing who helped make it a great night.

Also huge thanks to DJ NeoPink who played some big tunes from the top of the Rhino boulder for the whole competition. She had people literally dancing around the problems.

We’ll be hosting another competition in the next few months so keep an eye out for that. We’ll be posting photos soon to our Facebook account but in the meantime you can also take a look back at our Instagram posts (special takeover by Liam Lonsdale around the event).
