2022 TAKE TWO WRAPPED - ‘IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO’
June 8, 2022
How many competitors took part in Take Two 2022? How many boulders were set? How many climbs were sent? How many of these were flashes (completed climbs on a first attempt)?
Another year of Take Two complete. Take Two event is a yearly social bouldering competition held at NOMAD. It is an inclusive event that culminates in a massive finals night.
This year, we are unveiling insights and stats from our Take Two 2022 event that ran across March. We hope you enjoy exploring the stats below!
Thank you to all our competitors, members, staff and helpers for making this possible. We hope you find these insights as interesting as we did. We look to make 2023 bigger and better.
Climbs were set by our route setting team. The setting team went into hyperdrive. They created a fast paced environment where climbs would consistently pop up and disappear. If you didn’t complete a climb before it got reset you wouldn’t have the chance to add that climb to your score again.
Competitors signed up and competed. Over 100+ more competitors than last year!
Sends of the climbs. On average each competitor sent 15 climbs across the month that they were happy to log in their score.
Flashes happened across the competition.
Was climbed over the course of the Take Two 2022 event which also equates to 28x the highest point of El Capitan (The Dawn Wall) meaning our competitors climbed 25,610 metres of wall across March. We may have the next Nirmal Purja, Alex Honnold or Tommy Caldwell in our midst. If you don’t know the above, check out these documentaries: 14 Peaks, Free Solo, and The Dawn Wall (link these).

Rendering of the finals boulders used across open B’s. It allowed us to showcase the climbs in an interactive way to the finals audience.
Hours of DJing across the night. That is longer than it took for Alex Honnold to free solo el Capitan (884m of wall). He would have made it back to enjoy the last 3 hours of a quality DJ set.
