On February 11 and 12, 2011, the best climbers in North America converged in Boulder, Colorado, for the beginning of the Unified Bouldering Championships Pro Tour and the ABS 12 National Championships powered by The North Face. Big falls and bigger upsets characterized the climbing on the brand new competition walls from Vertical Solutions, and after three rounds of competition, the new U.S. National Champions are Alex Puccio (female) and Alex Johnson (male) for 2011. But with a last possible second flash of the final problem, it was Canadian Sean McColl who actually pulled out the win!
