Scottish National Bouldering League 2019

Thursday 21st March 2019, 3:43pm

SNBL 2018-19 is supported by Edelrid and Red Chilli

Eden Rock in Edinburgh held the final of their five-round winter series on the 16th March, corresponding to the final round of Scottish National Bouldering League. With a qualifying round and an on-sight grand final it was more like a national competition and there were some very strong climbers on show. The qualifying scores from the host wallís competition are used to determine ranking in the SNBL Series and after a group photo of the Eden Rock winners, the SNBL winners were awarded prizes donated by Red Chilli and Edelrid. They were:

The event this year attracted a total of 121 competitors signing up for SNBL. Some toured Scotland to attend every round, others attended their local round, whilst the majority attended varying rounds in between to increase their ranking as the scores after each round were posted and the leader board changed.

We would like to thank Alien Rock, Transition Extreme, Avertical World, Three Wise Monkeys, The Climbing Academy and Eden Rock for acting as hosts for the League. SNBL piggy-backs on the host wallís own winter bouldering series and so anyone entering a SNBL away from their home patch will experience each competitionís different vibe, different style of setting and different competitors. We hope you all enjoyed the League and we look forward to seeing more competitors next year.

Finally, but not least, we would like to thank Red Chilli and Edelrid for sponsoring the prizes this year.
