ABS 14 Youth Nationals - Greig Seitz

ABS 14 Youth Nationals - Greig Seitz
March 08, 2013 -  Greig Seitz

Last weekend I competed in my first ABS national competition. This was the first national bouldering competition I had attended. Going into this competition, I knew that it would be a great experience. I also learned about what I need to improve for next year. The qualifying round as well as semi-finals went fairly well. I was trying to conserve as much energy as I could. This strategy seemed to work since I made finals with plenty of skin and energy. The finals problems were amazing. The first boulder problem was a technical slab climb. Every hold...

Val-David has become almost a home for me. I really love this place. There are many good problems, some of them easy and some very hard. But the amazing thing is that all the problems have something to teach to you. I think that’s the real reason why I climb.I don’t believe in a universal level of climbing. For example, just because someone can do a V8 doesn't necessarily mean they can do a V6 or V7. The best approach to training is not just improving a general climbing level, but improving one or two specific types of...

Wanderlust… it is a strange concept. The desire to discover the unknown Same, same....but different Wanderlust… it is a strange concept. The desire to discover the unknown… far away places…What is this? It is an attraction to distant, random places on our Planet. This is an emotion that I am very familiar with. Yet, I am on the search for something very specific in these distant places. Maybe it is my inquisitive nature that is the catalyst to this desire. I am repeatedly pushed to these wonderful and alluring places. What am I really searching...

Greig Seitz Climbs Bambi 8A+/V12 - Greig Seitz
February 20, 2013 -  Greig Seitz

Recently, I went up to Matthew’s Winter Park. The area up there has mainly two boulders; the Hillside Boulder and the Millennium Boulder. As I went up to this new area, I only had one boulder in mind. This boulder is called Bambi. Bambi is an amazing roof in Matthew’s Winter Park. This boulder consists of multiple big moves through a steep roof. The redpoint crux is a long move to a fairly shallow two finger pocket. After I climbed through the pocket, I climbed through a technical slab to top it out. I was super psyched...

Competition Climbing 2013 - Greig Seitz
February 13, 2013 -  Greig Seitz

This year I have been focusing on climbing in competitions as well as climbing outside. Since I can still compete in the ABS youth series, I have been trying to stay motivated to train for gym climbing. It is hard to maintain a sense of motivation to climb inside while the temps have been so good outside. In January, I went to the ABS Youth Divisional Championship in Tucson, Arizona. During this competition, I met many awesome climbers. The excitement level was high with all my friends and competitors supporting each-other. I...

This is my third competition of the season. There were 63 climbers in the open category. This time the foreign climbers came from Toronto, New Brunswick and U.S.A. I met a very nice man, Josh Larson, who is on the U.S.A. climbing team.The competition had 50 problems for the qualifying round. The qualifying round was hard because the level of the climbers was higher than the last competition. I was amazed to flash problem 50 and this made me very pleased with the qualifying round. After three hours of climbing, I completed six problems beyond problem 41. This score...
