SBS Highlines & Highballs Open Results + Commercials – Alex Honnold & Katie Brown, and Chris Sharma selling watches?!

Highballs & Highlines Open Finals Results

Yes, it was exciting. As usual. Three members of Boulder’s Team ABC made finals, giving the start of the finals some orange flair. On top of that, we staggered start times due to a men’s finals no show, so our 2nd girl ABC’er and 1st guy ABC’er ended up climbing at the same time. There was SO MUCH ORANGE!  I’ll write up a longer rundown later, but til then here are the results:

Men

1. Alex “Socks” Johnson (fumbled the accursed BEAR CLAW!)

2. Matty Hong (1 move below Alex)

3. Garrett Gregor (we messed up scoring a little at comp time, Garrett actually earned 7- so he should have been 3rd)

4. Alex Manikowski (6+)

5. Michael O’Rourke (6+, qualified lower than Alex M so in 5th actually instead of 3rd)

6. Matt Lubar (6+, last qualifier so in 6th here)

Women's winner Megan Mascarenas hiking her final.

Women

1. Megan Mascarenas (flash!)

2. Nina Williams (14-)

3. Tiffany Hensley (13-, top qualifier of the next 4 climbers)

4. Isabelle Goodacre (13-)

5. Gabi Masse (13-)

6. Jesse Youngwerth (7)

I can’t find any more pictures of it yet, so here’s a picture of Maddie in the youth section of the comp.

Commercials

You may have seen this recent Citibank Ad featuring Alex Honnold and Katie Brown.

No, that is not Katie’s voice. You can read an interesting blog about how that all went down on Beth Rodden’s Blog.

But you probably didn’t know that Chris Sharma ditched his hot Spanish lifestyle and went climbing in Italy. Well, check this out:

He ties the rope, but did you see him use it?

We’re glad to see that climbers are finally getting paychecks from other industries!

Highballs & Highlines Results & Reset

We will be resetting Monday – Friday in the mornings. If you want to climb only comp style go to The Spot today. Tomorrow afternoon (after 4 is a safe bet) there will be at least 1 new wall for you. Etc. for the rest of the week until the gym is fairly full.

The rest of the SBS 7 Highballs & Highlines Wrap Up is coming later this week. Photos, full results, and more. Stay tuned, and see you at The Spot!
