Wrong Impressions - Emily Dudley

Wrong Impressions - Emily Dudley
October 31, 2013 - 

Summer in Colorado is an amazing time. The alpine climbing areas are teeming with motivated people projecting old and new climbs alike. The trails are packed with outdoor enthusiasts enjoying the breathtaking vistas that are the Rocky Mountains. This summer season was cut short. There were devastating floods closing most climbing areas. This was merely an inconvenience when compared to the devastation the flood caused to homes, roads, and businesses. But for every story of destruction there was another story of the generosity, heroism, and kindness of people in the climbing community. It made me thankful to be a...

Balancing School and Climbing - Greig Seitz
October 30, 2013 -  Greig Seitz

Finding the balance between my studies and my school life has been very challenging for me. At first, after I arrived at The Master's College, it was pretty easy to find the balance between the two. The Closer I get to the end of the semester, the harder it is for me to do both. I was still able to commit a fair amount of time to bouldering. Just recently, during a bouldering session, I got a hernia. It was very discouraging for me at first. After I got it, I knew I wasn't going to be...

In August, once I got back to the states after worlds ended, I went back to Philadelphia for another week and a half to finish up my internship at the University of Pennsylvania. The internship was a great experience, and taught me a lot about what I would like to do with my future. During this time back at the internship, I decided to take a short break from climbing, just to avoid any potential injuries. I do this at the end of every summer when the comp season is over for a while, and it...

Remember the Time we Almost got Struck by Lightning? - Tim Rose

Remember the Time we Almost got Struck by Lightning? - Tim Rose
October 28, 2013 -  Tim Rose

We were at the mouth of the forest. The service road that we had hiked went on but the forest came to an abrupt halt at the edge of a large reservoir. Rain fell in white sheets obscuring our vision tracing a path in our wake as we sped across the open expanse. The sky was ashen brown; lightning illuminated the darkness and a cacophony of discordant thunder rung in our ears. Visibility was going from poor to naught quickly. “We are completely exposed out here,” I said panting. The only thing that stood between us and the...

Cross-Training and Rehab - Nick Bradley

As I have written in previous posts, I have been dealing with a torn pulley injury since the beginning of the year. After the 2013 IFSC Youth World Championships, my finger had been worse than ever due to so much training, but as soon as the season was over I had the time to heal up, and finally take care of it. I've taken two terribly frustrating months off from climbing, but not from training. If I could pick a different sport, it would have to be running, and that just happens to be a great sport to cross-train...

Sendtember Paused by the Colorado Flood: Our Estes Park Flood Story - Melissa Strong
October 26, 2013 -  Melissa Strong

The sound of rain on our roof used to be a comforting sound soothing us to sleep knowing that the dry forest was soaking up the much needed moisture. That all changed for me Wednesday September 11, 2013. It had been raining all week, which was not typical for Colorado. Wednesday night the pounding rain was ferociously loud as it hammered down on our metal roof. The clamor kept me from sleep and naively my biggest worry was the garage was taking in water. Eventually it was time to quit the game of attempting...
