After a whirlwind evening that saw 20 competitors test themselves on their respective finals routes, Charlotte Durif and Daniel Woods emerged victorious at 2013 SCS Nationals.
For the women, visiting French climber Charlotte Durif showed emphatically that she is one of the best female climbers in the world as she fluidly moved up the women’s finals route for its only onsight. Delaney Miller took National Champion honors by virtue of a truly impressive 2nd place performance that saw her fall one move from the finish. Rounding out the top three was Chelsea Rude who also made it near the end of the route before spitting off. Last year’s defending champion, Sasha DiGiulian, never seemed in top form the entire weekend and finished in 9th position.
On the men’s side, Daniel Woods recovered from an uneven qualifying round to nearly top out the men’s route and claim the crown of National Champion. Woods becomes the first person to be ABS and SCS National Champion in the same year so a huge congrats to him. In 2nd was Carlo Traversi who backed up his strong qualifying performance with a solid performance in finals. Rounding out the podium for the men was the young darkhorse Noah Ridge who I expect you’ll be seeing for many years to come in events like this. Last year’s champion, Vasya Vorotnikov, finished in 5th.
