Scott Cory eeked his way to the top men's place, beating local Connor Everton by a mere 40 points. Dustin Park pulled in a solid third place finish. In women's Hannah Donelly finished first followed by Kat Gentry and Katrina Louie.
Connor Everton, who has been training 4 days a week for 3-4 hours each day in preparation for the USA climbing competitions, spoke a little bit about TBS 8 at DRG. "I liked how I didn't have any pressure to do well or to not do well, I could just climb," said Everton of the comp scene. "The atmosphere was a lot like how it normally is which is a very relaxed place, almost like a 2nd home."
A record 279 boulderers came out to DRG. "It definitely felt crowded but not to the point were it was hard to get onto a climb." TBS 8 heads out to Great Western Power Company in April.
