Training Works! - Andrea Cartas

Training Works! - Andrea Cartas
February 26, 2014 -  Andrea Cartas

This time I'm motivated to train for at least three months. The goal: recover finger strength after past injury, increase endurance and raise my level. I'm my own coach cause I have the experience and enough knowledge to carry out it. I'm so happy to see how I was able to send an 50m 8b route in only four attempts and being so close to do my firt 7C+ on boulder! This year is full of protects and I'm excited to do them! I will continue training motivated waiting to find the right protect and the coolest...

Comp Season: Understanding the Importance of Failure - Josh Levin

Comp Season: Understanding the Importance of Failure - Josh Levin
February 26, 2014 - 

With ABS Nationals just having come to a close, I want to address a subject most people are keen to avoid: failure. Failure is something that we avoid at all costs in all aspects of life, let alone competition climbing. However, I believe there are many important lessons to be learned from failure, especially when it comes to dealing with high-pressure situations such as in climbing competitions. This past month and a half, I have had the opportunity to compete in a major pro-level bouldering competition on east coast 6 weekends out of 7. So far, almost every...

Another Winter of Climbing in Bishop - Seth Rogers

Another Winter of Climbing in Bishop - Seth Rogers
February 25, 2014 -  Seth Rogers

This winter I did a couple of trips to my favorite place on earth to boulder - Bishop.  I did a trip with a large group from Zero Gravity and I did a trip with just a couple of climbing buddies.  I like the energy of the large group but I also enjoyed the chill vibe of hanging with just a few friends.

Training for Nationals: Pipeworks, Ironworks, and Dogpatch - Matt Grossman
February 24, 2014 - 

I have been training hard for nationals and am excited to be going off to Colorado in a few days. I have been training for about 12 hours a week. My weekly training is broken up into 3 hour sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and then either Saturday or Sunday. I am trying to do more boulder problems that my coaches make up so that they have a weird move or are more of a comp style boulder problem. I am also working on my slab climbing to sharpen my skills and am getting better at my pacing and...

First Ascent of The Penrose Step V14 • Carlo Traversi
February 18, 2014 -  Five Ten

In the fall of 2013, Five Ten Elite Athlete Carlo Traversi traveled to Leavenworth, Washington to attempt the longstanding "ladder project".  Just minutes from the main road, this impeccable shield of rock had resisted attempts for nearly a decade.  After 4 days of work, Carlo made the First Ascent of the line calling it "The Penrose Step" and giving it the grade of V14, making it the hardest boulder problem in the state of Washington.
