Free-Souling - Ben Rueck

Free-Souling - Ben Rueck
November 23, 2012 - 

I have heard the stories of tragedy striking… usually without a warning… or a reason. A hold breaks and someone who was free-soloing comes free falling to the ground. Not a hope or a prayer to survive the tumble. It generally happens to folks who are incredibly strong climbers cranking through routes far below their skill level- or things that they have so wired that they could walk the route in their sleep (with a rope on).However; there are a few things that must be done in the Arapiles… climb a route called Kachoong, eat Kangaroo, and apparently free...

Competition Lessons - Erica Carlson
November 22, 2012 -  Erica Carlson

I’m two comps into the season so far and have done a lot of learning so far (or at least I feel I have, hopefully the lessons stick). It’s quite different having comps start this early for those of us in Western Canada. Typically at this point, we’ve only had 1-2 fun comps. Mentally, I don’t think I’ve been quite ready for it but the plus to that is that I haven’t focused so much on my week leading up to comp routine/prep. I’ve been able to pinpoint a few things that work for me and a few that...

France last August - Melissa Lacasse

France last August - Melissa Lacasse
November 21, 2012 -  Melissa Lacasse

This year has been a very busy working year for me. It may explain my lack of blogging recently. Since late is better than never, I am finally taking a few minutes to talk about my two weeks trip to France last august. Basically, it was a last minute decision. I just wanted to climb as much as possible in different places but also get some rest. Marc-Antoine and I came up with a plan: We flew to Marseille, rented a car and went to Buoux for scary vertical sport climbs, Ceuse for fitness and finally Les gorges du...

A couple of months back I was bouldering in Magic Wood, Switzerland. I jumped off a boulder and landed totally normally onto relatively flat mats. As I hit the ground I heard a little snap in my leg.. It was broken. 3 months off spent training, a month just climbing on rope and I am now back bouldering. Its been a hard journey and it's still not over....

The Performance Phase - Hans Christian Montenegro

The Performance Phase - Hans Christian Montenegro
November 20, 2012 - 

I have finished my specific training and now I am in the performance phase. The most important part in this phase is to let muscles restore their new shape because after training, the whole body is tired and performing in this condition is not ideal. But you have to be careful because too much rest can have a negative impact on the results of your training. So, this phase is composed of rest, climbing and maintenance.Rest:For the first week, you just have to climb. You can do small climbing sessions (2 hours) and don’t try to overload your body...
