ABS13 Open Nationals - Josh Levin

ABS13 Open Nationals - Josh Levin
March 02, 2012 - 

This past weekend was my 18th birthday! Somehow or other, it ended up coinciding with ABS Open Nationals, which were held in Colorado Springs on February 24th-25th. This year, I put a little more pressure on myself to do well, considering my abysmal performance last year (see post) which involved a 30th place finish and a badly sprained ankle. My goal this year was to make it to semifinals, which also happened to be on my birthday (February 25th). I knew the competition would be tough, and that I would have to work on my weaknesses in order to...

I've just returned to the good ol' USA from a wild and overhanging bigwall adventure in the Venezuelan jungle. It was a crazy trip full of machetes, hunger, and whippers. As I write this, I am about 3 Thin Mints away from killing a box of girl scout cookies. God Bless America.

2012 Bouldering Nationals - Greg Padovani

2012 Bouldering Nationals - Greg Padovani
March 02, 2012 -  Greg Padovani

Overall, from fit to finish, I felt pretty good this weekend. I could tell right when I landed that I was at a significant disadvantage due to the change in altitude - I was winded walking off the plane. I tried my friend’s trick of doing some sprints immediately after landing, but it is hard to tell if it helped. I proceeded to follow a high water and lower protein diet for the day preceding the comp to help my body acclimate to the altitude.

Clear Creek Canyon and Shelf Road - Urs Moosmuller

Clear Creek Canyon and Shelf Road - Urs Moosmuller
March 01, 2012 - 

Clear Creek Canyon has a reputation for having soft short routes on ok quality rock with the exception of some hidden gems. When you first enter the canyon all you see is choss. To the left and right there is nothing but steep hills and loose rock. But as you progress forward you start seeing small cliffs with unique features and good sized walls. The day before planning our day trip to CCC we checked the weather and saw a high of 61 degrees, but didn’t check the wind forecast.

Long Weekend in Sinks Canyon, WY - Jen Vennon

Long Weekend in Sinks Canyon, WY - Jen Vennon
March 01, 2012 - 

Over President’s Day weekend I made a weekend road trip to Lander, WY. Winter has been dragging on and “life” has taken it’s toll in the last few months. Work, work, and more work . . . that’s all I feel like I do. But a three-day weekend is a rare thing and something to be taken advantage of. So we packed up the car and set out on the lonely roads that connect Colorado to Wyoming. What we found were good friends, fun times, and sunny walls to climb. Months of no climbing have left me weak and...
