Day 14 - Hang Challenge

Day 14 - The FINALE!!!

We arrived at The Climbing Academy and got set up. We knew this venue was going to provide some exciting challengers to the time with some keen climbers showing us their skills on the walls before taking on the hang challenge. It was a really busy day from start to finish with all ages participating as the climbing academy was offering free taster sessions in their amazing city centre venue for anyone who came to take on the hang bar.

 

Now down to business....It has all been building up to this, the last day, the epic battle to the end, who can beat 3mins 44s and become Glasgow Hang Champion 2018?!?

As soon as the hang bar was up and ready we had a queue of people to test their skills.
We had lots of 1m30s, 2m10s and the odd 3m but still no one could beat Stephens time.

Then up stepped Jonny with a confident look on his face he started the challenge. 1 minute, 2minutes, 3 minutes...we are starting to think we have a challenger. 4 minutes 12 seconds 😲 we have a new leader!!!!

Jonny Stocking takes the lead.

This time remains for a few hours with one contender managing 4 minutes 11 seconds before falling to the mats they had exhausted all their energy and couldn't hold on for just 2 seconds more.

HES BACK!!! STEPHEN CRAWFORD IS IN THE BUILDING!!!

Stephen has returned to take back the top spot he earned at Kelvinhall and he means business!

As cool and calm as his first amazing attempt he starts the challenge 1m, 2m, 3m, 4m .... we ask him how long he can hang for .. a calm 5minutes easy is the answer.

Stephen smashes back into the lead with a time of 5mins 20secs 😲!!!

Where is Jonny? Jonny has headed home!!  Will he return to have another shot before we finish at 6pm?

We have a few more challengers with one individual getting 4mins 40 seconds a great effort but can't beat the 5min barrier.

Jonny is back and he is up for giving it one last shot.

Up steps Jonny for his second attempt this time achieving an awesome 5mins 46 seconds 😲which is now the new time to beat.

Stephen has left but has promised to return before 6pm.

We patiently wait 5:45pm Stephen is back and is going to give it one last attempt, he smashes by the 5mins barrier but can't quite hang on for long enough with a amazing and personal best time of 5mins 22secs 🙏 !! 

The clock strikes 6pm. The Hang Challenge is now officially finished and we have our winner!

Stephen and Jonny congratulate each other on a truly epic battle with both contenders giving it their all.

 

The Champion is crowned 👑
