The days are short and the darkness and cold drive us inside to the climbing gym.  This time of year can be depressing, with school and work forcing us to spend the bulk of daylight hours inside.  Lucky for us it makes it easier to head into the gym and fine tune things as we quickly approach our Regional Championships.

Our team has had a great ABS season training, traveling and competing in a bunch of competitons.  We've traveled to and put up proud results at the Portland Boulder Rally, Stoneworks (ABS), Bend Rock Gym (ABS), Rogue Rock Gym (ABS) and Bend Boulder Bashes #1 and #2.  

With those local comps done and out of the way it's time to set our sights on the Regional Championships.  This year the team will be loading up the van and making the long 13+ hour trek to Bozeman for the ABS 14 Northwest Regional Championships.  With that, we've turned our focus to putting the final touches on our physical and mental games as they relate to an onsite competition   We've ramped up our intensity and volume of workouts and had a mock onsite comp mimicking the format of our Regional Championships.

We'll be sure to post a report on Regionals here and hopefully all of the hard work and long van rides will pay off!
