ABS 14 Media Wrap-up

Let’s catch up with some interesting content on the 14th edition of the American Boulder Series.

A few weeks ago Colorado Springs hosted the 2013 ABS Nationals (basically the USA Bouldering Championships). First the adults competed for the title, the glory and the opportunity of being part of the American team for the IFSC Bouldering World Cup. The week after, the Youth Nationals took place with some very well known names (despite their age) like Ashima Shiraishi or Brooke Raboutou on the starting list.

Some posts worth checking out
Some of the climbers that participated have shared their perspective on the competition through their blogs:

A bunch of members of Team ABC did quite well on the competition (they won the team championship) and they have some posts about it.

Also, at The Spot climbing gym they must be quite excited about Ian Dory’s peformance (he’s a coach and setter at The Spot). Some other members of The Spot did really well on the Youth Nationals.

Videos and pictures
