Lynn Hill was not at the comp, she was in Europe on the way to her 1st World Championship. Had she been present she would've won both the women's and men's comp easily. df

Bull.... I think your correct.

I recall it was more like a comp for LA locals.

So I would love to see a list of who was entered and how the rankings ended up.

Anyway, post up if you recall any of this..

And Dwain... did you do the boulder comps?

I never went to comps after RTUD, It seemed like a waste of a day not climbing and waiting for your turn.

And Dan.... you must come down to Stoney and school the youth.

Am getting ready Guyman - am honing up. Did more pullups in a day yesterday than I have for many years. I did one as a warm-up before walking around Greenlake, then did 2 more - 2 in a row that is!

Yes I did the boulder comps at Rubiudoux and Woodson in the 80s.
If I remember right, I did 2 at Rubidoux and 3 at Woodson,
Or, Was it the other way around.
Dam memory is getting worse as I get older.

Cool thread Guy!
I remember seeing that climbing wall at Sport Chalet back in the day. That's when I started in this silly sport, and met you and Kris and the rest of the gang at Stoney...good times!
