#VauxComp 10: The Scarpa Edition - Report

On 2nd December VauxWall hosted our 10th #VauxComp. This event was our Scarpa Edition with T-Shirts, Hoodys, Chalk buckets and 5 pairs Of Scarpa Instinct Slippers up for grabs!

This special 10th competition was sponsored by Scarpa with the first 100 competitors receiving a free limited edition Scarpa #VauxComp10 Vest. These looked fantastic at the event and we look forward to seeing them around London.

The #FunComp Black Circuit and #VauxComp set on the Scarpa Comp Wall were set by multiple British Champion Leah Crane & her partner in creativity, international banter machine Liam Lonsdale. Liam flew direct to London from commentating the La Sportiva Legends event in Stockholm last weekend. Leah delivered a fantastic guest Ladies Social on the Monday prior to the comp. Liam was also our official photographer for the event, as a passionate climber and route setter he was able to know exactly where to be to capture the best faces, moves and action.
