Based on the world record increased level of traffic last week the Unified Bouldering Championships had a real hit with their Earth Treks Roc Comp. It certainly didn’t hurt that the comp was won by stars like Chris Sharma and Alex Puccio. If, like me, you missed the live stream you can watch highlight videos from the comp at DPM (or at the end of this post) right now:
In completely unrelated news, this site (along with many many others on my host) was compromised by a malicious worm early Saturday morning. When visiting this site via a search engine like Google the worm would attempt to trick you into doing nasty things to your computer. It is my sincere hope that nobody was negatively impacted by this. If you were I can only offer my apologies and reiterate that an up-to-date anti-virus program is a must for any Windows PC.
Since I was climbing at the Red River Gorge all weekend I didn’t become fully aware of the problem until yesterday afternoon at which point I began working on correcting the problem. At this point I think I have all the infected files fixed (thousands of them) and it’s my hope that everything is back to normal. If you notice something is still not right please leave a comment or send me an email at climbingnarc _at_ gmail.com.
