CityROCK The Evolution | Results

Catch up on all the action from The Evolution boulder competition...

This past Saturday, 18 February, saw 76 competitors battle it out in The Evolution – CityROCK Johannesburg’s final for the Evolv Boulder Series. Some great prizes were up for grabs, including R2000 in Mountain Mail Order vouchers, and the competition was fierce!

The day started with qualifications, which included twelve boulder problems in the Wilds that competitors had 3 hours to complete. The psych was high and the beta was flowing as the climbers took on the challenge, and it was great to see everyone working together to get to the top.

In the end, only twelve spots (six per gender) were available in the finals and they went to:

Aimee Hattingh
Jemma Erdey 
Kelsey Dowds
Abigail Strange 
Jade Vogt
Arielle Coetzer

Ethan pearman 
Fayzan Adroos
Josh Greaves 
Sebastian van Wyk
Edward Harvey
King Julian

Female Winners:
1st place – Kelsey Dowds
2nd place – Abigail Strange
3rd place – Arielle Coetzer
Male Winners:
1st place – Josh Greaves
2nd place – Edward Harvey
3rd place – Fayzaan Adroos

These twelve champions really brought their A-game as they stepped onto the mats to tackle the four final boulders conjured up by the route setters. After two hours of cranking and cheering from the crowds, it was finally time to crown the winners and have a lekker jol. A huge congratulations to all the finalists, especially Kelsey and Josh for getting the gold, and well done to all who took part – we’re sure next year is going to be even bigger and better!
