SCARPA’s newest global athlete Sean McColl did work last week. On March 12, he took home the win against an incredibly stacked field that included Rustam Gelmanov, Jan Hojer, and Jimmy Webb at the Climbing Works International Festival (CWIF) in Sheffield, England. The the technical finals problems played well into Sean’s style. “I managed to pull a couple “off-the-book” climbs,” said McColl of his comp experience. “And adventure my way through some tricky boulders to win the event.” Men’s final’s problem #3 was the real crowd pleaser, requiring insane body tension and some creativity.
