#SB2k14: Hueco Tanks Style - Kyle Francis

#SB2k14: Hueco Tanks Style - Kyle Francis
March 18, 2014 - 

This past spring break I got to go back to Hueco Tanks for only four climbing days, which made me a bit nervous. So far this semester has been crazy busy, I became the Texas A&M climbing coach, my leadership organization is really active, and tests pretty much isolate me from everything for about a week and a half every four weeks. Basically this means that my climbing has been the thing to suffer. Since January, I had climbed maybe 6 times before leaving for El Paso, so roughly twice a month….. 

Finishing Out the Bouldering Season - Zoe Steinberg

March 06, 2014 -  Zoe Steinberg

Since it is starting to seem like I am always a little behind on blog posts, I am going to try something a little different with the next two posts. Instead of giving a full run through of every comp I have gone to since my last post (I think there have been about 7 of them), I’m going to quickly summarize the events that I went to in this post, and then reflect on them in a couple of weeks in my next post when I have had a little more time to think on them. ...

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...

Bishop and the Rope Season - Nick Bradley

Bishop and the Rope Season - Nick Bradley
February 15, 2014 - 

So lately I have been taking quite a few short trips out to Bishop, which has been both fun and beneficial to my bouldering ability, but holding me back from ropes. Basically I've been projecting and projecting and sending harder than ever before, but I'm struggling on finding the focus on one particular event, such as Open SCS Nationals, or bouldering hard outside. This will all level out soon enough I'm sure though... Anyway, here's some updates on what's going on:

Weekend at LRC - Francesca Metcalf

Weekend at LRC - Francesca Metcalf
February 14, 2014 - 

Recently, I got to get outside and climb at LRC for the first time this year. I went with the climbing club and acted as a guide with two other officers for some new climbers who who had recently joined the club. For many of them it was their first time outside, so it was really exciting showing them around and seeing them experience the challenges and thrills of climbing outside for the first time.

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. ...
