This morning I leave till July 14th to go rock climbing! We are going to the red for three weeks, then off to Atlanta for nationals, then Florida to hang out. What you’re looking at in the photo above is what happens when 13 ropes (60-70m) get wet in our trailer and need to be laid out, that’s about five feet in width and about 800m of rope……

We had our divisional championships this weekend. After Qualifiers I was in first by about 5 holds, so I was feeling pretty good going into finals. Finals, however, did not go so awesome, and I ended up placing second behind Shane Puccio, with other Five Ten athlete Joe Gifford right behind me.

Hopefully I’ll have enough internet to post more posts during my trip!
