On Sunday June 23 the FCTCC was held in Orlando.After winning the Work Climb,Aerial Rescue,Belayed Speed, and Footlock events in the morning, Justin Vought went on to take top honors in the Masters Challenge.
No he is not Robo Arbo,and yes it was not his day at throwline. After sending a throwline through the 3 target on the left side and the 7 target on the right side with one throw, then using the a second string to isolate both targets, he had some trouble getting the rope installed into the 7.Justin has enjoyed many opportunities to learn climbing techniques from the best. He has volunteered his services at the ITCC in Baltimore and Milwaukee and has observed many of the worlds best climbers like Mark and Beddes. Each time he participates he picks up something new to add to his "tool box ". These techniques help him at the workplace as well as the competition. He also participates at the TCI expo each year where he hangs out with the ArborMaster gang.Im sure he would tell you that taking advantage of these as well as many other opportunities have enhanced his natural ability. He is very excited that he will get to compete with the top climbers from around the world in Seattle.
