The Roc comp was a blast. I had an amazing time. The red-point style qualifying round was the only down part for me. That is totally a personal thing though, the way they organized it worked really well and it every one seemed to be having fun, but I would have just rather done a on-sight style comp instead.

 

The semis were really fun, it was on-sight style and world cup scoring (only tops count). In this round I had some trouble getting my head in the game. When I looked at the first route I was really confused, all of the holds looked like foot jibs, I thought I was not seeing a bunch of holds. After a couple awkward attempts I figured it out and sent on my 3 go. The 2nd and 3rd routes didn't go so well, on both routes I messed up the foot beta by not using crucial heel hooks. At this point I was pissed at my self for not climbing very well, and I knew that if I didn't top the last problem I wouldn't make finals. So I told my self to forget about sucking on the first few problems and to just burl up and finish this one, and I did. I ended up 6th coming out of semis just barely making it into finals.

I was so psyched to just be in finals that I didn't even care how I did. I was so psyched to climb, and I had an amazing time competing. The problems were set really well, the second one was by far my favorite. It had a jump start to powerful core intensive moves. Overall the problems were really hard, probably the hardest comp problems I've ever been on. I didn't climb that amazingly, but I ended up in 5th under Alex Puccio, Alex Johnson, Lisa Rands, and Francesca Metcalf.
