The Dark Horse Competition, Boston, USA. February 1, 2014

 
The Dark Horse Competition, Boston, USA. February 1, 2014
 
April 22, 2014 - 
 

This was my first USA competition. I could not choose a better one. The Dark Horse Series is a wonderful circuit. Many good climbers go there to participate. It was very motivating to climb with many sponsored and professional climbers. It was the perfect place to push hard and to improve your level.  Dark horse was a good place to see anther rout setting style.  And, I love it.

I really like big movement with big holds. You can jump all time. I met Alex Puccio, Meagan Nicole Martin and Ashima. Also, Dark horse series gather almost all the finalist climbers in ABS USA. Then, for me, it was a really good experience and a wonderful place to be. I realized that climbing is not about strength but mind. I love when I finish a competition with more knowledge.

In the professional category, we were eighteen people I finished at fourteen. It was a good result for me because this was the first time in that circuit. I am sure that next year, I come back for another nice experience and to see my new friends.  Hans Montenegro
