After ABS Nationals I headed back to Bishop to continue climbing and working out projects. I tried a lot of things I hadn't tried before and it was really fun to get on fresh boulders. One of my most inspiring personal accomplishments in Bishop this season is Secrets of the Beehive. It's an incredibly tall line in the Beehive area with a terrifying mantle crux finish. I was proud to know that I could keep a cool head at the top and finish the climb.With so many strong climbers around the Bishop area it was cool to see really...
La gara di questo week end è stata sicuramente una delle migliori del TCC, sia per l’organizzazione che per la tracciatura. I blocchi di qualifica non erano duri, ma un po’ mi hanno fatto sudare . Dopo 2 ore sono riuscito a chiudere tutti i boulder, compresi i rossi, non molto più duri di alcuni gialli. Per le qualifiche ho preferito usare le JET7 perché le trovo più comode di altre per la facilità di metterle e togliere, ideale anche per la qualifica stile raduno.
I am back home in Boulder. I've been doing some soul searching as to why I haven't felt "on form" lately. Looking back over the years I've always felt best when I climb 90% outside. So I'm going to make it simple on myself. No gym memberships, just the boulders.
Feb.19th-20th 2011 Nevada Downhill State Championships For the first race of my season, I took a trip out to Boulder City Nevada for the Nevada Downhill State Championships. It was definitely a fun filled weekend of riding, practicing and racing. I was able to hang out with some great friends, while riding Bootleg Canyon everyday, all day long. I have to admit I was a bit tired from the super epic weekend, but in the end it was all worth it.
