3 days climbing for Peter Whittaker

3 days climbing for Peter Whittaker
January 31, 2011 -  Peter Whittaker

3 days good weather, resulted in 3 days very nice climbing. Friday me and my friend Tom went for a potter round millstone. I had always wanted to have a go on Monopoly, a Johnny E7 from back in the day. I thought the route was probably onsightable so set off up the route, placed the low gear and got established on the slab. Unfortunatly the holds weren't as good as I was hoping for on the upper slab so down climbed back to floor before becoming to committed.

James Pearson - The Expedition Reports 3: The Arch

James Pearson - The Expedition Reports 3: The Arch
January 31, 2011 -  James Pearson

Its time for more Expedition Reports from Chad. This time, Alex takes on one of the most disgusting routes I can imagine... So this dispatch is about a cool arch I got to climb. I’m typing it from the back of the jeep while we quest around the desert. We stopped at the Sao Paulo [sp??] Arch a few days ago while we were driving just to see it as tourists. But when we parked underneath we discovered an amazing offwidth crack that split the whole formation from one side to the other. The whole team decided that...

Alex Johnson on The Mandala

Alex Johnson on The Mandala
January 30, 2011 -  Alex Johnson

I am ecstatic to announce that two days ago, on January 28th, I found myself topping out The Mandala! This magnificent prow has been on my dream list since I first began climbing, and it's such an incredible personal accomplishment. I don't know what else I can say besides "I'm soo psyched!!" I split my index tip on the send and was planning on taking the next day off and resting, but somehow got suckered into climbing (of course) and managed to pump out Beefcake as well. I guess it was an alright rest day. :)

New Training Plan for Stacey Weldon

New Training Plan for Stacey Weldon
January 30, 2011 -  Stacey Weldon

I have been living in Kingston for a year and a half, and was pretty bummed for the first year, having nothing more than a birthday party gym with vert top rope to climb at.  Instead of sulking around, I decided to go the proactive route, and got together with a group of super psyched climbers to plan the opening of a bouldering co-op in town.  Eight months and hundreds of volunteer hours later, the Kingston Bouldering Cooperative is up and running, and the psych is high!

Ryan Olson's Competition Season

Ryan Olson's Competition Season
January 30, 2011 -  Ryan Olson

My competition season is approaching full swing with one of my biggest comps of this year just two weeks away. I have been spending the last month training in the gym for the upcoming ABS National Championship in Boulder, CO. The ABS always puts on a great comp, and I have climbed in more than 7 nationals over the past ten years. While its hard to gauge my current level of strength, I have been working hard recently to put myself in a position to do well. I plan to go in with low expectations, try to do well...

Vikki Weldon Reports on the Western Tour De Bloc Season Kick-off

Vikki Weldon Reports on the Western Tour De Bloc Season Kick-off
January 29, 2011 -  Vikki Weldon

The Canadian bouldering series, the Tour de Bloc, is now in motion! This past weekend, my home gym, The Edge, hosted the first Western competitions of the series. Unfortunately, due to a nagging knee injury that I incurred just before Christmas, I decided not to compete. I did, however, film finals, and for the first time ever, made a movie. Pretty proud of myself here. Check it out!
