I recently competed in the Climbing World Cup at the Teva Mountain Games held in Vail, Colorado. I took 13th and had a blast! I love the atmosphere of world cups, you get to meet new people and experience new cultures. All the competitors are insanely strong and it's incredibly inspiring. The weekend after the Teva Games I competed in USAC Divisionals in Portland, Oregon. I placed 1st in difficulty and 2nd in speed. I am currently at the pre-nationals training camp in Atlanta, Georgia. I am training with some of the strongest competitors from all across America. We are training our butts off and I cant wait to compete against them in the USAC Nationals.
