Today I watched most of the country’s pros (as well as a good deal of USA Climbing’s Junior category) onsight five very, very hard problems. I might have been able to climb one of them if I had a few weeks to work it - not the 4 min they had for each. Stoked to climb the Citizens’ comp tomorrow afternoon, and then to sit back and watch finals!

It’s a week before I head out to Colorado for ABS Nationals, so the training is tapering off (the entire practice tonight was just a laid back redpointing/projecting session). Going to focus on getting a ton of sleep and eating well all next week. Found out tonight that one of the guys on the climbing team is coming out, too - which is awesome. It just occurred to me that I’ve never...
The Rock Ocelot: Attention all climbers! →
rock-ocelot: I need your help! I am doing a project for my entrepreneurial studies class about a hypothetical start-up small business, in my case a climbing gym. I want to know what YOU would put in a gym if you had unlimited resources. What would make it more amazing than your current gym? Min 50’ walls - preferably higher. Top-out bouldering area w/ good mix of features + a well...
This body better toughen up, because I’m going to train tonight whether it likes it or not.

How to be a respectful climber
candyshark: do not stack your rope on top of somebody else’s. absolutely DO NOT start climbing without checking if your route will be in the way of somebody else. do not start to climb under someone who is fucking climbing right above your fucking head that is dangerous for me the person i’m belaying and you. if you feel the need to express your political or religious opinion, suppress it. ...

Two nights of bouldering power/endurance training (i.e. 4x4s until you drop) and then a 2 mile run this morning for my “rest day”. Tomorrow: on-sighting… and more power/endurance. This weekend: ABS 14 bouldering comp at Stone Moves in Houston. I will meet my training goals, body. Don’t fight me on this - it will just make it worse.
