It's finally fall in Colorado, and with cooler temperatures comes sendage! As a Colorado native and a resident of Fort Collins, I am lucky enough to climb year round. Now is the prime season in Poudre Canyon. On my first trip of the season I realized there is still so much I haven't even seen yet. So right now I am working on the first female ascent of Public Property V9, previously V11 until the start hold broke and became even bigger. Psyched for the send!
On September 27th me and Laura crammed our temporary belongings into the compact Saturn/Benz and began the trek out East. Nearly 30 hours later, after driving across no man's land, we arrived at our home base in Chattanooga. Once we had winded down from the drive we quickly spurted another 5 hours Northeast to the first leg of the Triple Crown Bouldering Series in Boone, North Carolina. The weather was on the fringe of disaster. Regardless of the treacherous conditions, we along with many other brave soldiers decided to stick it out. The day of the competition was miserably...
This has been a busy year both in competition and in rock climbing and traveling.In competition I have to highlight the 3 place in the Championship of Spain of escalating difficulty, the 4 position in Spain Cup of difficulty and 3 place in the Catalan Cup of difficulty.

I'm back on the road again, after too long a time, and damn... it feels good! I've finished my nursing degree, and pending my final exam results (fingers crossed) I'll officially be a registered nurse!! I have secured a job in the lovely town of Canmore, Alberta which dosent start until January. What other choice do I have but to grab my visa card, hit the road, and head south???!!
