2016 Bloc on The Rock video!

Our video from the 2016 Bloc on The Rock climbing competition at Wallnuts Climbing Centre in St John’s, Newfoundland. This bouldering event kicked of the climbing competition season and is the first of two major provincial competitions in the province.

Climbing with Erinn

Well, Fall is here and that means back in the gym for Erinn Locke to prepare for the 2016-17 competition climbing season. Along with teammates on the the Newfoundland junior climbing team, she will be competing in Newfoundland, Ontario and Quebec this year in hopes of qualifying for the Canadian national championships in the spring. It’s always a time of hope, goals, aspiration and anticipation for the season ahead. Check out her photo gallery!

Or follow her adventures on her FaceBook page, Erinn Locke Climbing or her Instagram feed. @erinn.locke

As with most amateur athletes the only thing holding them back is money. This is especially true for young athletes from Newfoundland where travel to train and compete in other parts of Canada can be prohibitively expensive.  If you are interesting in sponsoring some extremely talented young climbers who want to represent Newfoundland in the up and coming sport (which will be an Olympic sport in 2020!) please get in touch on the Team Webpage!

The Newfoundland Youth Climbing team is sanctioned and supported by the Newfoundland Section of the Alpine Club of Canada.

Youth Climbing Competition

A poster we did for the upcoming Youth Climbing Competition happening in St. John’s on Feb 16th. It features a photo of daughter Erinn (of course!) in competition at Wallnuts Climbing Centre. This is an Alpine Club of Canada sanctioned competition and qualifier event for the eastern Canada regional championships to be held in Toronto in April. If you want to see some amazing young athletes like no other, you really should come out and see these kids compete.
