This year's Regionals was probably the best one yet. I first want to say that everyone at Planet Rock did a fantastic job setting the comp up, I appreciate all the time and effort they put into hosting such a great competition, and I also want to thank the DRCC for sponsoring the comp and for Vince DJ-ing the comp.

 

Going into this comp I was coming back from being sick for 2 weeks, and I was very happy with my performance non the less. I ended up tying for 1st in qualifiers, and placing second over all. Qualifiers was awesome, all the problems were very well set and fun. Finals was even more awesome!!!! All the problems were highball (my favorite). The last problem was my favorite of all the problems, it was my style with big ole pinches and big moves. Placing 2nd gave me a spot to go to Nationals in Colorado. This will be my first nationals I've been too, and also my first time out west and I'm planning on making time to go do some climbing outside. As for right now I am training for Colorado, finishing up school, and have started planning my summer climbing trips, which will mainly be just going to Kentucky for a month or 2, but I am also working on a possible trip to Yangshuo which I am EXTREMELY excited for but as for now it's still in the works. I would like to say thanks again to everyone who made this comp possible, and I look forward to seeing everyone who made it to nationals in a few weeks. It's going to be a great time for sure.
