ABS Nationals is in full swing now in Alexandria, VA, and despite concerns about the weather it looks like most of the competitors were able to make it for the Open qualifying round yesterday. Jamie Emerson was on hand tweeting live updates which he promises to do once again this evening for the Open finals beginning some time around 7:30 PM EST. Until USA Climbing finally does something like ne2c did this past summer with the Mammut Bouldering Championships this is probably the best option for live “coverage” of the comp.
Here are the climbers who qualified for finals tonight:
