With winter quarter coming soon to an end, there’s lots to be done! Academically, it has been a great quarter so far. I am in the process of declaring in mechanical engineering, and as a result, my classes are becoming increasingly focused and interesting, from thermodynamics to fluid mechanics.

Climbing has been going really well, too! In January, some members of the Stanford climbing team and I took a day trip to Yosemite. We had a great time bouldering a bunch of classics. I particularly like the King (V7). Aside from the occasional outdoors trips, I have been focused on training, as CCS competitions have just begun. The Stanford team as a whole has been really improving, and we are all excited to compete. Just a week ago, Andy Lamb, who is another coach for the Stanford team, competed at open nationals and placed 3rd! He is definitely an inspiration and I think this has motivated people to train even harder. The team will compete in CCS local competitions over the next few weeks, which will culminate in regionals at the new Stanford gym. It’s very exciting, and we’re looking forward to CCS nationals in Florida in the spring.
