Live From 2011 Unified Bouldering Championships Finale At The North Face Open: Day 1

Good morning sports fans. Check back throughout the day as I provide live updates from the grounds of the 2011 Nor’easter and the finale of the Unified Bouldering Championships Pro Tour.

The qualifying round of climbing should start around 10:00 AM EST. If there is a climber climbing in qualifiers today that you want me to pay special attention to (pictures, updates, etc.), just let me know in the comments and I will do my best to keep you up to date on how they are doing.

        How many comps has he been listed for and then no-showed in the last year?  Seems like at least 3.

          The problem is that sponsors sometimes register athletes into events they aren’t 100% committed to. Not sure if that is the case here but it’s certainly disappointing not to be able to see him climb.

          I talked to Dave after the comp.  He’s still trying to adjust from returning from Australia so he wasn’t quite feeling up to competing today.

    Nick Picarella climbs out of the Philadelphia Rock Gym…I’ve witnessed this cool/ strong kid send hard. I hope to check him out in finals.

    Narc, are you unbiased or do you have any heroes you’re rooting for?  I wouldn’t mind hearing the inside man’s predictions either!

      I’m relatively unbiased I’d say.  I’ve always been a big Dave Graham fan but since he’s not competing there’s not much there to worry about.  I guess I’ve been friendly with Paul in the past so I like to see him do well. I’m also inherently biased for people like both Alex Johnsons and Isabelle Faus since they’re from the midwest 🙂

      Predictions are a bit hard to make based off qualifiers.  The top climbers for the men and women made things look easy, so it was hard to really where they all stood.  Obviously Angie and Alex will be hard to beat and for the men Ethan, Paul, Ty and Ayo all looked great.  Hopefully semis will be where we start to see some difference.  Based on today’s showing Finals should be a real good show.

      Sorry about that, I had to bail on the updates there. Dan did well on all the problems except M5. I don’t think he sent that.
