Plastic & Rock: ‘Tis the Season…for both? - Angela Payne

Plastic & Rock: ‘Tis the Season…for both? - Angela Payne
April 14, 2014 - 

There comes a time every year when the weather begins to improve, the snow begins to melt, and my motivation to get outside begins to build.  That time is now.  But, as a person who truly loves climbing on rocks AND plastic, this always creates an interesting conflict of interests.  Since the competition season doesn’t ever really end, the Spring is the time when I often feel like I don’t have enough time to stay in shape for plastic while also pursuing outdoor goals.

3 Weeks, 3 Comps, & Red Rocks - Angela Payne
February 04, 2014 - 

After spending some time visiting family, I returned to Colorado just in time for the Heart & Soul competition at the Denver Bouldering Club. This was a local comp that drew a strong crowd. The boulder problems were all very fun, the finals round was challenging and entertaining, and the proceeds from the event were donated to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. I placed 3rd and had the pleasure of climbing with many strong women, including Alex Puccio (1st), Kasia Pietras (2nd) and Nina Williams (4th), and Emily Ziffer (5th), to name a few. ...

The Heist at Central Rock in Watertown, MA - Francesca Metcalf

The Heist at Central Rock in Watertown, MA - Francesca Metcalf
October 05, 2013 - 

Last weekend was the Heist, the first annual all women competition held at Central Rock Watertown, MA. The gym is basically in my home town, and of course I'm always looking for a good excuse to fly home, but this competition sounded like an experience that I just couldn't miss, and something I would've loved to participate in, no matter where it was. To make it better, my boyfriend flew down with me for moral support and my sisters were both competing with me, surrounding me with my favorite people, making it a great comp already.

Vail World Cup - Angela Payne

Vail World Cup - Angela Payne
June 16, 2013 - 

The Bouldering World Cup in Vail is always one of my favorite events of the year.  The competition is part of a larger event, formerly known as the Teva Mountain Games, now known as the GoPro Mountain Games.  I remember the days when the competition at the Teva Games was held on a small mushroom-shaped boulder in a parking lot, so it is pretty neat to see how much the event has grown over the years.  Now, the World Cup attracts an incredibly strong field of competitors from various countries.  

Spring in Colorado - Angela Payne

Spring in Colorado - Angela Payne
May 15, 2013 - 

After some unseasonably snowy weather, Spring has finally come to Colorado!  I have been trying to take advantage of the mostly gorgeous weather to get outside and climb.  I have been working at a new job recently, and I am finding that when I do have time to climb, I am much more motivated to do so.  As a result, I have actually managed to get some great climbing done over the past few months.  

SCS Nationals - Angela Payne

SCS Nationals - Angela Payne
April 10, 2013 - 

This past weekend I stepped out of my comfort zone and competed in the SCS Nationals in Boulder, CO.  Sport climbing is not something that is completely foreign to me, as I was exclusively a sport climber for 5 years of my youth, but it is definitely not something I do very often anymore.  So, I knew that this event would be a challenge for me.  Given that and the fact that it was at Movement, just a few blocks from my house, it was hard to resist.
