Puccio and Woods Win ABS Nationals~Part 1

Feb. 13, 2010-Daniel Woods crushes men's finals three, at ABS Nationals, Sportrock, Alexandria, VA.

I expected the testosterone, the short shorts, and the Daniel Woods paparazzi, but I didn’t expect to have so much fun at ABS Nationals—Saturday’s comp at Sportrock was super fun! Between the colored lights, crowd-friendly screens and intimate space, the atmosphere was a perfect blend of community psyche. The problems were well-set, interesting and tested various climbing talents. Competition bouldering has clearly pulled itself out of the post-PCA lull. Check out these photos from iso and throughout the comp!
