The annual bouldering competition at Baring Head (eastern side of the entrance to Wellington harbour) took place on Saturday. A strong, cold southerly hadn't quite blown itself out and numbers seemed down a little, although that might have been partly because most of the Christchurch climbers hadn't come north, for obvious reasons. Still, the event ran smoothly and, as always, I found it delightfully social — the spirit at these competitions is wonderful. I'm working through my photos and will eventually post them on the Baring Head Bouldering blog, with a few here too. In the meantime here's one from the beach on the walk back to the car.
