Five Ten Athlete Natasha Barnes goes on a road trip to the UBC Pro Tour stop in Seattle and stops in Gold Bar, Index and Leavenworth on the way.
About 3 months ago I decided to compete in my first big comp since doing the Dark Horse last Fall/Winter, the UBC Pro Tour stop in Seattle. This time I had been training for the competition under the guidance of Kris Peters and with some strength training help from my friends at Anthropos Performance. A couple weeks ago I got to test myself against some of the best at the Aesthetic Invitational. I knew I could do a little better but nonetheless I was pleased with my performance placing top 5 in the comp. So last Saturday I left San Francisco and headed towards Seattle with the intent of stopping at a couple of bouldering destinations on the way.
