This past Saturday, November 21, Metrorock held Round 2 of the hugely popular Dark Horse Bouldering Series at the Newburyport facility.  On the men's side, Kai Lightner swooped in and took the top spot, while Jesse Grupper (winner of round 1) took second, and Nick Picarella third.  On the women's side, Nina Williams came home for a visit and took home first.  Bimini Horstmann came in second with Margo Hayes third. 

On her Facebook page, Nina commented, "my first comp in months and I got first!! ‪ Ultimately the Finals round came down to flashes, and I kept it together for all 4 problems. I didn't feel like the strongest climber that night... but I had a different mentality this time that allowed me to relax and actually have fun. It felt good to get back to that."   Click here for the full results.  Also, check out the awesome gallery of photos from http://www.gkwanphoto.com/.  Round 3 will be on December 19 and the final will be on January 23, both at Metrorock's flagship Everett location.
