The last 10 days have included 4 days of rain, 3 days of climbing, and now another 3 days of rain. Tomorrow is looking bleak. It’s beginning to drive me crazy. The reality of the situation is starting to become evident, and despite the fact that we have plenty of time to climb ahead of us, this weather has been forcing a number of realizations into my already overwhelmed brain.

A quick, fun recap of the first of three Dark Horse competitions held at Metrorock North in Newburyport, Mass.

I woke up at 9:30, early by my standards, pounded a banana and coffee and drove 45 minutes North to Newburyport, MA.
The 2010 Gibbon World Cup Took place this last weekend during the IMS Boulder Festival where Five Ten athletes Momo Weiss, Andy Lewis and Bernd Hassmann took the podium.
Take a look at Jurgen Lis and his brother promoting Five Ten at an extreme sports event on Jim TV last Sunday.
Horse Pens = Success. The 2010 Triple Crown continued yesterday at Horse Pens 40. Weather was incredible - sunny and breezy with a high of only 54. And while Triple Crown days are usually torturous days spent attempting difficult boulders in less than optimal conditions, yesterday was one of the most enjoyable days of climbing I've had in a while. Competitors were happy, no one rushed by the threat of warming boulders or rolling skin, and everyone seemed excited to try their hardest.
Amazing how great the landscape can be in autumn. I've been in Fontainebleau last week with two guys from Munich. Our plan was having fun and climbing some of the great boulders.
