Rockhouse comp had a standout crowd too with 105 competitors over the two days, Opens was huge on the Friday night. The leaders from the Penrith Comp had to wear, in the traditional style of the Tour, a yellow tag on their harnesses to show they were the leaders.

Stand out performances were Dave Hoyle from Hangdog with 44 climbs and 28,210 points being the overall pumper with the most points. But the climber with the most climbs was Adam Gearing, a Youth C male from the Rockhouse who did 48 climbs and scored 26,260 points!

Robert LeBreton from the FIS, Mitch Breheny from the Centre of Gravity in Port Macquarie, and Pitch Ninja, Axel Triton shared the prize in the Open A male with 9,410 points. The Rockhouse's own Ben Aves, in Youth A Male, achieved the same score the following day. Open A Female was won by another Rockhouse local Nikki Selles with 9,025 points.
