Mint Vermont Weather, an FA and a Trip to Arkansas, With Brian Bittner

 
Mint Vermont Weather, an FA and a Trip to Arkansas, With Brian Bittner
 
November 27, 2011 -  Brian Bittner    
 

This year has been a much different one in my climbing career. It started off as recent year's have with a trip South, some local spring climbing and regular training in the gym. As the weather got warmer and the climbing got a bit lack luster, work starting picking up. I run a business as an antique dealer and travel to shows throughout the Northeast to setup at shows. I found myself especially busy this year. I had more house calls, found more merchandise and went to more antique shows to sell. The result of this was significantly less climbing, almost none in fact throughout the summer.

 

Fast forward to this fall. I made the transition back to climbing 4-5 days a week in addition to running and doing prehab shoulder workouts. My psych has been high after not climbing for so long. I soon had my sights on a local project (see Jake List on crux move). This provided great motivation to get strong. The project was a low start to a V11 I had put up last year called Give Me Your Lunch Money. The low start adds two hand movements and two foot movements, about V9. Within a couple weeks and many days the line, dubbed Fat Kid V12, went down (footage to come soon).

Jake, Aaron Nietzel and I have since planned a trip to HCR in Arkansas for the first couple weeks of December. In preparation we made the drive to Rumney where I was able to cleanup a two year project, B-Boy Stance. This week I will attempt to also cleanup Spectacle Illusion which Jake and Aaron both sent last week and I came, oh so close to doing.

Stay tuned for a recap of our trip to Arkansas!
