Winter Season

Winter Season
March 12, 2015 -  Zoe Steinberg

I’m not entirely sure where to start this post since I’ve kind of forgotten where I left off in my last one. In the last several months, I’ve competed at the IFSC Youth Pan American Games in Mexico City, my last ABS youth regionals, divisionals, and nationals, four relatively local competitions, and have been on two trips to Chattanooga and one to the new in some attempts to pull on real rock. I’ll try and sum up everything pretty quickly, then try to remember never to fall behind this bad on a blog post so I don’t have to...

The Dark Horse Competition, Boston, USA. February 1, 2014

The Dark Horse Competition, Boston, USA. February 1, 2014
April 22, 2014 - 

This was my first USA competition. I could not choose a better one. The Dark Horse Series is a wonderful circuit. Many good climbers go there to participate. It was very motivating to climb with many sponsored and professional climbers. It was the perfect place to push hard and to improve your level. Dark horse was a good place to see anther rout setting style. And, I love it. I really like big movement with big holds. You can jump all time. I met Alex Puccio, Meagan Nicole Martin and Ashima. Also, Dark horse series...

Finishing Out the Bouldering Season - Zoe Steinberg

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...

And They all Screamed Dark Horse… Again - Nicholas Milburn
February 05, 2014 - 

This past weekend I competed in my second Dark Horse! Last year’s Dark Horse had some fierce competitors and I missed finals by two spots. This year redemption was my goal.I almost forgot there was a Dark Horse at all, but Josh Levin reminded me to buy my tickets a few weeks before the competition. Josh had a bye to finals along with Nick Picarella because they won a previous Dark Horse, so they were in the clear. I had to compete in the qualifying redpoint round. Just like last year, qualifiers was crazy hard. There were a lot...
