The 2011/2012 competition season has finally come to a close – just in time for the first Tour de Bloc of season 10!
The Summer Sweat Fest season wrapped up with the finale at True North Climbing a few weeks ago. I had been looking forward to the comp for weeks after having a ton of fun at last year’s finale event. The setters and organizers also had surprises up their sleeve for the comp format this year, which both excited and intimidated me. I managed to win all the Sweat Fest comps that I entered this summer so I was confident, on the top of my game and knew that I could win it if I climbed my best. Knowing that, I usually put more pressure on myself to perform, and the expectation of winning can often backfire and cause me to lose focus or not try my hardest. This comp was different. I was in a perfectly calm but psyched mindset ready for anything that the setters might throw at us.
