Recently, I have started climbing outside more often. The Poudre Canyon is where I’ve spending most of my time. As I get outside more often I realized that there are so many boulders which I am psyched to get on!

I was a little discouraged about how I haven’t sent anything hard. Then I, realized that climbing is supposed to be fun. Over spring break, I started climbing with little or no expectations. This has really helped me enjoy climbing a lot more. Instead of climbing for the grades, I’m now climbing for fun. Climbing hard boulders is also fun, but that isn’t all I’m concerned about now. 

A few weeks ago my team and I went to Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. This was our trip to climb at the Snake Pit Area. The sandstone boulders had some unique problems. We had a great time climbing here. After we climbed here, we went to watch ABS youth nationals.

This week I have been bouldering a lot. I spent most of my time climbing in the Poudre. I also went on a trip to the Bog. Two of my favorite climbs were at this area. They’re called Iron Helix and Simple. Iron Helix was one of my favorites. You get to move from slopers into crimp and underclings. I attached a video which shows me climbing at this area in the Poudre Canyon.
