World Cup Build Up – Nathan Phillips


World Cup 2017, Meiringen, Switzerland.

We are excited to share the first blog from our 
White Spider sponsored athlete Nathan Phillips.


Nathan has recently returned from his first 
Bouldering World Cup of the season as the highest placed GB male in the event.


Here’s what he had to say about the 
build up and competing at such a high level…

 

G-Force 2017 Podium – Nathan Phillips

 

“After a hard winter of training with very little outdoor climbing, I headed over to Dublin, Ireland for the G-Force. This competition was one I had competed in before and one I knew I could go to without putting too much pressure on myself. It was a good kick off to the year when I took the win and the €500 prize money.

 

Next up was The CWIF – a notorious competition held every year in Sheffield.

 

CWIF 2017 Team Podium with Nathan Phillips joint 1st

 

This event is usually used for GB Team World Cup selection and is a good way to see if the winters training has worked. So many big names missed out on the semis this year due to small mistakes in qualifying, but I managed to push my way through for a spot. Semis were so hard! And unfortunately, I couldn’t get a place in the final.

 

The season kicks off! Meiringen, Switzerland was the first round of the 2017 World Cup season.  Excited and unsure as to how I would perform this early in the year, I went out onto the mats… the first boulder had 3 big volcano shaped holds and it took me quite a few attempts to figure out how to climb it. Never the less, I topped. “Great! Let’s keep this going”. Next up was an overhanging volume traverse followed by a mantle. Not completely my style and I didn’t manage the bonus “It doesn’t matter, no one else has done it” (I didn’t know, but that’s what I told myself).

 

I knew the next boulder was a slab, and that’s my thing! I went out and quickly dispatched with only a slight sketchy moment before latching the last hold. Onto number 4, those flat hold scoops that look really cool but are usually really hard to hold. Not my ideal boulder. After one attempt (failing to see a crucial crimp. I sent the problem 2nd try with relative ease. (Pretty happy with that one!) With only one more to go I had no idea whether I had a chance of making it through or not. Either way I was going to try my hardest on the final Bloc, A Jump! I went through attempt after attempt, almost sticking it every time. Any other day I feel like this would have gone, but I guess the stresses of competition can do frustrating things.

With qualification done, looking at the results I needed to do the jump to make semis. This being the case, I’m I little annoyed I couldn’t put it down then and there but I’m also really psyched for the rest of the season. I’m climbing well, felling strong and excited to see if I can achieve my goals for the year.

 

I’d like to thank White Spider for their continuing support. Without them I couldn’t make it to the next leg of the comps.” Nathan Phillips.

 

What an amazing effort form our boy! I’m sure you’ll all join us in wishing him all the best of luck for the next leg of Boulder World Cup events in China. His next competition is on Saturday 22nd April in Chongqing, China.

Proud to Sponsor – Nathan Phillips

White Spider Indoor Climbing are proud to announce the sponsorship of Great Britain Bouldering Team member, Nathan Phillips.  All the team here at White Spider and Red Spider (our sister bouldering centre in Fareham) are looking forward to supporting Nathan in his upcoming International competition season.

Nathan Phillips

A Biography from Nathan Phillips

My name is Nathan Phillips. I’ve always been climbing, whether it be on a climbing frame in the local park or swinging around on the goal posts instead of doing my job as keeper. Eventually at the age of 6, my dad took me to a climbing wall. A year later I was competing in the YCS formerly BRYCS (British Regional Youth Climbing Series). I can’t really remember how well I did, but I knew I liked it.

At 15 I decided to give up lead climbing after winning the National final of the YCS and focus on my true passion, bouldering. I was never the strongest climber and I didn’t actually start any form of specific training until 18.

The next year, I made the Senior Bouldering Team as at the time there was no Junior Team. I then went out to be the first Brit to compete, make finals, podium and win at an International Youth Bouldering Competition (EYC). With the creation of the Junior Bouldering Team during my last year in that category, I stuck around for one more year to offer my hand as a coach.

I now compete in Senior World Cups and have made a few semi-finals. Over the next few years, I hope to progress to Finals and push for those podium positions. With the support of White Spider Climbing I will be able to get to more World Cups and give myself the chances I need to hopefully achieve my goals.

Outdoors, I have amassed a large number of hard ascents up to 8B+/V14 and a total of 70 8A/V11’s and above so far. This includes a flash of the super classic 8A+/V12 ‘Jack’s Broken Heart’ in Magic Wood Switzerland.

That’s enough about my history. I’m super psyched to be joining the White Spider Team and so appreciative of what they are doing for me. If you are reading this, come say hi if you see me route-setting or training at the wall. I’m usually more than happy to answer any questions or just have a chat.
