The 2011 fall term ended up consisting of more climbing than any other in the past.

Weekend trips to spots like the Gunks, Great Barrington, Ice Pond and local Connecticut areas proved important in maintaining a balance between school work and play. I also managed to complete several problems I had been wanting to do for a while but had not due to time constraints.

 

Christmas break delivered a much needed break from the grind, and my brother Jeff and I also had the pleasure of going climbing in the Southeast. We were very impressed by the climbing and rock formations, and certainly recommend it to climbers of all levels.

With redefined expectations of climbing frequency, the first half of 2012 has been filled with regular outdoor sessions to obscure and popular spots across Connecticut and Massachusettes (and a couple competition wins too). With the unparalleled motivation of fellow Wesleyan climbers and crew members, Miles and Will, there is little opportunity to crumble. And with the abnormal lack of a real winter, mother nature has been on our side.

With a new set of eyes, and feeling of lightness somewhat comparable to historic peaks in my climbing, I have been able to put up a couple good first ascents close to school. One of which will yield a sit start that will without a doubt be v14, and one of the best this side of the Mississippi.

Well, that is most of it.

I am currently in the bay area on spring break and will be going to Yosemite in the coming week. A place I have wanted to visit ever since I first opened a climbing magazine.

To a well balanced, and fulfilling spring.

Signing out,

Tyler
