Mayan Smith-Gobat - Spain Bound

Mayan Smith-Gobat - Spain Bound
February 17, 2012 - 

Desert, mountains, beautiful boulders, psyched friends and endless splitter days… What more could one ask for? This pretty much sums up my stay in Bishop! After barely bouldering at all for the last five years, over the last month in Bishop I really discovered the joys of bouldering. The simple pleasure of doing a short sequence of moves, being able to focus purely on individual movements. That said, I was most attracted to the big, bold and strikingly beautiful lines, which are relatively abundant and are what Bishop has become famous for. I loved the commitment...

A Day Late and a Dollar Short - Ryan Silven

A Day Late and a Dollar Short - Ryan Silven
February 17, 2012 -  Ryan Silven

For my first blog with Five Ten I thought I'd share a little bit of tragedy and triumph from the Fall and Winter. I once had a teacher in middle school tell me that I was "always a day late and a dollar short" and, while that certainly was true in middle school, I'd like to think I've moved past this moniker. I mean, sure, I'm usually a little late to work (not an entire day thankfully), and rarely do I remember to pay rent on the first of the month, and I'm always rushing from place...

Winter Time - Brian Dunnohew
February 15, 2012 -  Brian Dunnohew

Winter is throwing me for a loop again this year! Usually I climb around Lander and the Flaming Gorge until the first week of Jan. I take a week long rest then began a 9 week training regimen. It usually works out great because the highway to the Flaming Gorge is closed for the most of Jan and Feb and the roads to Lander can be terrifying and should be closed more often. But, this year it has been unusually warm and we have been able to climb outside more often. So now I am climbing inside 3-4 days...

Time Off - Tim Garland

Time Off - Tim Garland
February 15, 2012 - 

Taking time off from the sport you love can be difficult but can pay huge dividends in the long run if timed correctly. Not only is forced time off part of a healthy physical training cycle, but also a necessity in order to stay psyched and willing to push your body to the limits. It always amazes me how good my body feels after a recovery period. Finger tendons tighten up in a positive way, nagging minor soreness goes away, skin repairs, and the ever important mind recovers and is ready to begin the process all over again. I...

A Piece of Mind - Sasha DiGiulian

Last weekend I traveled to Seattle, WA to teach a PCI-operated clinic with Kevin Jorgeson and Steven Jeffery. I had never worked with PCI before so I did not know what to expect. I was impressed by their managerial and operating skills and I had a great time getting to know Kevin and Steven in the process.

A work in progress - Check Your Head - Sam Hayden

A work in progress - Check Your Head - Sam Hayden
February 14, 2012 - 

Went to P-Way today, 20 degrees, the friction was great, but I figured out later that my fingers had been numbed by the cold and I didn't feel the terrible burning pain in my fingers that I have now. My dad got me up at 7:00am...-10 at our house! We headed south hoping the temps would increase and thankfully they did. I worked a V9 there called Check Your Head and found it was definitely one of the more challenging problems at P-Way, I gave it 36 tries and after an hour and a half of...
