The Journey to Machu Picchu - Francesca Metcalf

The Journey to Machu Picchu - Francesca Metcalf
August 28, 2013 - 

This year, instead of the big climbing trip I usually like to take, I went to Peru with my boyfriend and his family and some family friends of theirs. The reason for our trip was a three day hike to Machu Picchu, a 15th century Inca city which was abandoned for almost 400 years before being formally rediscovered. After flying into Lima, the 11 of us traveled to Cusco, a tiny city about 82 km from the start of the Inca Trail, where the elevation was about 11,200 ft, the highest elevation I, and most of the others, had...

Rocklands 2013, South Africa - Niccolò Ceria

Rocklands 2013, South Africa - Niccolò Ceria
August 28, 2013 -  Niccolò Ceria

This summer I spent five weeks in the famous bouldering location of Rocklands. After some years of waiting, the day of the flight arrived and I was motivated to go to climb in this place which is described like a paradise by every climber. I was anyway a bit insecure about this trip since too climbers crowed the place and some people doesn't do anything else that speak about a beta or about a numbers and performances by other climbers in the place. In fact, this behavior was quite present but not so much as I thought. The place...

World Youth Championship 2013, British Columbia - Nick Bradley

World Youth Championship 2013, British Columbia - Nick Bradley
August 28, 2013 - 

Worlds is always a huge challenge for me in many more ways than the difficulty. The style is different, my mentality is different (usually for the worse), the place is different, everything is just so different it's hard for me to adapt. This was only my second international competition, so its not so bad that I feel this way. However, this year did teach me so much more than I would have expected. I learned how to adapt to my anti-style and climb fast with quick shakes rather than slow and long rests, how to execute cruxy moves without...

Cowboy Up and Get Shut Down, A Tale of Failure in CO -  Matt Lubar
August 28, 2013 - 

Near the end of July, I made a conscious shift in my mindset in regards to what I have been investing my time in climbing wise. I started to move away from repeating “easier” boulders that generally take two days or less and began throwing myself at boulders I knew would take many sessions over a long period of time. I have always been bad at projecting hard blocs near my limit, as I get impatient after expending so much time and effort with nothing to show for it. Yet that is the name of the game as far...

Training for Worlds - Zoe Steinberg

Training for Worlds - Zoe Steinberg
August 27, 2013 -  Zoe Steinberg

 Sorry this blog post is so late- for some reason, I seem to get just as busy over the summer as I do during the school year, just with different things.  This summer has been especially packed, as it is not only the summer before my senior year of high school, meaning all sorts of fun college stuff, but it is also the first time in two years that I qualified to compete at the IFSC world youth cup.  

Summer Training and the Youth World Championships - Shannon Russell

Summer Training and the Youth World Championships - Shannon Russell
August 27, 2013 -  Shannon Russell

This summer was pretty much dedicated to training for worlds. After a week off from climbing right after the youth national championships I received an invite for the youth world championship to be held in Victoria, B.C. in late August. From then on it was pretty much crunch time for training. Since we had 5 members from Vertical World make US team this year there were plenty of training partners. Unfortunately, the only time I could go to the gym was in the late evening because of work, so must of the time I was training with my two...
