2010 Vail Bouldering World Cup Media & Wrap-Up

2010 Vail Bouldering World Cup Media & Wrap-Up

So, I don’t know if you heard or not but there was a bouldering competition in Vail this weekend that was kind of a big deal.  In case you missed it, here are the posts I had over the weekend about the Bouldering World Cup at the 2010 Teva Mountain Games:

Jon Glassberg put together a nice set of highlight videos from Finals that show pretty much every meaningful attempt on all the problems.  Check ’em out:

Here are some other medias floating around the interwebs:

Feel free to share others sites with media that you come across in the comments and I’ll add them to the post.

    As others have pointed out, the streaming quality could have been better but I think with time we’ll see more effort put into this. 7000 viewers is not to be overlooked, and where there is viewership, there will inevitably be more resources dedicated.

    The thing that really got me were how many problems involved a crazy dyno either at the end, waaay up high, or that involved body contortion etc. They really should think twice about this stuff as the last thing we want is competitors to get injured while performing for us.

    At first I was kind of bummed that I missed the live feed this weekend, but now, thanks to Jon’s incredible editing and footage, I feel like I got to see all the best parts and with great music to boot. I like how he allowed us to watch most attempts from start to finish, and there wasn’t any rushed feeling or spazzy editing. Also, wasn’t it sort of cool how in the guys problems, it seemed like the vantage point got closer and closer as each of the climbers made their attempts? I thought that was awesome. Was he like constantly moving around in the audience or something?? Anyway, great work.

    is it just me…or are these bouldering competitions steadily growing into spectator sports dedicated to athletes jumping around from plastic to plastic? i understand it needs to be “entertaining”…but double-dynos off crimps to crimps get old quick.
