Mock On-Site Comp - Riley Joyce

Mock On-Site Comp - Riley Joyce
November 25, 2012 - 

Getting ready for regionals is crucial right now. As many of us know USA Climbing has changed the format of regionals this year; 6 routes 4 minutes on and 4 minutes off. Knowing that, my coach thought it would be a good idea if we had a mock on-site competition. This was a great idea! I tried to pretend that it was regionals: no phones, eating well the night before, etc. Not only id this work, but made me more psyched for regionals in three weeks.

New River Gorge, Journeyman - Ben Spannuth

New River Gorge, Journeyman - Ben Spannuth
November 23, 2012 - 

The New River Gorge probably has the most palpable climbing history of any area I’ve been to in the US. I haven’t been to Smith but more so than most areas the NRG is littered with routes put up before I had started climbing and even has several from before I was born. Typically, this time period is known for its nails hard vertical and slightly overhanging routes, what I like to call slabs, but the NRG certainly has climbs of a wide variety of styles. I’ve only seen a handful of the walls but each...

Free-Souling - Ben Rueck

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....
