As always the spirit of climbing was very much in evidence. Â What a great sport this is! Climbers of all ages (well from 9 to 50) giving it heaps to try to get to the tops of challenging routes. Â The routes themselves, superbly built by Ian Ambrose and Pete Lofthouse, with the help of local Auckland setters, Â at the Extreme Edge Gym, Glen Eden. Â Gym owner Darrin Worsfold and the magnificently well organised Auckland Sportclimbing Club hosting and putting in the hours of hard work behind the scenes. Â All the volunteers running the event on the day – the belayers, judges, timekeepers, video monitors, and, in charge of proceedings, President of the Jury, the dynamic Jo Hutton-Smith. Â Southern Approach have been our sponsor for the Cup this year – generously providing some great podium and spot prizes for our competitors. Â And Levi Harrell, ofallnationsphotography, has been very busy around the arena capturing the amazing action. Â Many thanks to all!
