The 2012 SCS National Championships took place on April 6th and 7th in Boulder, CO. For the third year in a row, Sasha DiGiulian topped the women’s finals, with Delaney Miller and Michaela Kiersch rounding out the top 3. Not only has DiGiulian won three straight years, but she hasn’t even taken a fall!
In the men’s final, Vasya Vorotnikov took first, pulling off an insane inverted toe hook on the men’s finals route. Vorotnikov was returning to competition after rehabbing a serious shoulder injury, so his win was a surprise to many. Dylan Barks and Daniel Woods placed 2nd and 3rd respectively. Woods continues to branch out beyond his well-known bouldering expertise with his good showing in this competition, as well as news that he has been redpointing some hard outdoor sport routes. It will be interesting to see what he can accomplish in the coming months.
The complete video of Sasha DiGiulian’s ascent of the finals route was just posted by fellow competitor Carlo Traversi.
