The 2016 Australian & Oceania Lead Titles were held at Sydney Indoor Climbing Gym in Villawood from Friday June 17 to Sunday June 19. This year saw the return of Speed Climbing to the competition which proved popular & even saw a new speed record set with Jarred Jordan beating his old record of 9.82sec with a brutally fast 8.93sec climb!
Saturday saw qualification rounds for all categories, topped off with a monumental finals for Open A, B & Masters categories. The huge walls at SICG Villawood meant nice long routes were set which split the field nicely & provided some good old “ooohs & aaaahhs” from the crowd! Sunday played host to a shorter more relaxed day than what we are used to, with the Junior, Para & Youth A-D finals. This gave them a good chance to rest up from climbing the day before, & bring their best for the finals.
Set In Stone Photography was the official event media partner & were in attendance all weekend to capture every moment. Check out the galleries & see if you can spot yourself or a friend!
