+competitors at Ratho, 138 kb On the 25th April, 40 students made their way to the EICA at Ratho for the Scottish University Sports Bouldering Competition. As this was the first time the competition has happened in at least 3 years, the competitors were enthusiastic despite the standard hungover feeling of a Saturday morning...

Students representing the majority of the Universities across Scotland competed in both the Hard and Easy Leagues. As the Glasgow University Mountaineering Club were hosts this year they unsurprisingly dominated the turnout; despite a near disastrous flat tyre on the minibus! The Aberdeen team, however, dominated the scoreboard by winning all three Gold medals in the Hard League. Hopefully this made their long journey down to Ratho worthwhile.

So without further ado, here are the results for both rounds:

EASY Team

1ST GLASGOW 1
2nd GLASGOW 2
3rd St ANDREWS 1

EASY Male

1st RGU 1 Stuart Gillan
1st GLASGOW 1 Andy Wilkinson
3rd GLASGOW 1 Jamie Nicholson


EASY Female

1st GLASGOW 2 Hannah Gibbs
2nd ST ANDREWS 1 Laura Young
3rd ST ANDREWS 1 Anne Lloyd Evans

HARD TEAM

1st ABERDEEN 1
2nd GLASGOW 1
3rd GLASGOW 2

HARD Male

1st ABERDEEN 1 Piotr Wisthal
2nd GLASGOW 1 David Brigham
3rd GLASGOW 3 Mark McPhee

HARD Female

1st ABERDEEN 1 Anna Wells
2nd GLASGOW (individual) Emily Ward
3rd EDINBURGH (individual) Helen Bailey

Greatly appreciated prizes were donated by Wild Country and Troll! Thanks also goes to the staff at EICA Ratho who were extremely accommodating and provided an excellent venue for the revival of this Competition.
