Comp Season - Aicacia Young

Comp Season - Aicacia Young
October 28, 2012 -  Aicacia Young    

Comp season has officially begun! A couple weeks ago, I participated in a bouldering and sport climbing comp at UTSA. It’s a fairly small gym, but one of the walls is 54 feet tall, so it’s a nice opportunity for some endurance training. They dedicated a whole week to climbing, calling it Climbapalooza. It was a 4-day competition with about 35 routes/problems, and a complimentary showing of Reel Rock 7 halfway through the week. It was an absolute blast, and I really surprised myself with some of the problems. I’m not exceptionally dynamic or capable of utilizing slopers, but I managed to send both. One problem contained only slopers and the other one required a jump start since I was too short to make the first move statically. I won 1st place in the Women’s Advanced Division (for the first time in my life), and my name will go on their UTSA Climbapalooza Championship plaque, so that’s always fun! Anyways, I’m finishing up my clinical rotation in a few weeks, so I’ve got to get back to the daily grind. It’s time to get back outside now with all this beautiful weather!
