So last week was my first competition and it was a great success. It was the first competition the Calgary Climbing Centre had had put on in two years and it was amazing. There were sixty routes, over 150 competitors and people came out from all over including BC, Edmonton, Lethbridge and Canmore. Lots of fun with great people. The competition was finished with a slack line competition. I would have thought I would have won the slack lining with my strip tease performance, but apparently no one wants to see that.
The competition was great, I finished third behind two nineteen year old punks. God, one way to tell that you're getting old is when you realize that these young punks that you remember as pre-pubescent little wangs in choker necklaces (yes I mean you Sam Tucker) and boys that looked like Harry Potter, are actually freaking strong contenders. Don't worry boys, the training is just getting started for the year.
Oh and I went to the Arkells this week. Awesome band to see live if you get a chance.
