E9 Masters Norway

While everyone else was sunning themselves in Sheffield this weekend i headed to the frozen fjords of Norway. I was invited to climb at the E9 Norway Masters in Lillehammer. The competition was one of the best i have been to thanks to the support of all the Norwegian climbers. Also invited was Nalle Hukkataival fresh from his Silver Medal at the European Championships in Birmingham. I managed to qualify in 2nd behind Nalle and ahead of local star Magnus Midtbo. I the final i somehow pulled out all the stops to take the title after climbing 5 problems with Nalle completing 4. I was a happy bunny as it made up somewhat for my poor showing in Brum. That and the 10000 Krone cheque, a massive Sohill Boulder Pad and an E9 jacket.
Vids and pics to follow.
