Relentless Positivity - Aicacia Young

Relentless Positivity - Aicacia Young
April 15, 2014 -  Aicacia Young

There I was at the top of the route - the wind whipping through my hair, the sun bronzing my back, and my forearms so pumped I could just scream. The chains were staring me right in the face, but I wasn’t secure enough to clip. Clinging to a small one-pad flake with my left hand and frantically searching for something positive with my right, I knew I had to think of something fast. My left hand was getting too pumped to hold onto a huge flake and if I didn’t shake out soon, I’d be popping off in...

40 Hours of Horseshoe Heaven - Aicacia Young
March 25, 2014 -  Aicacia Young

This weekend I had the opportunity to go back to Horseshoe Canyon Ranch, a gorgeous climbing destination just outside of Jasper, Arkansas. The last time I climbed at HCR was roughly 3 years ago when I first started climbing, so this trip brought back some very fond memories. All that I remember from my first trip to HCR was Mr. Magoo wall and a route called Orange Crush – a super fun and exposed 9+ that I distinctly remember flailing on. I made my first trip to HCR just after learning how to lead climb and lead belay, so...

First off I would like to wish everyone who is reading this a happy new year.  I hope your holidays were relaxing and spent doing what you love most with family and friends.  I’ve done a lot since my last blog post, so I’m going to sum that up, then reflect a little on the past year.

South for the Winter - Aicacia Young
December 26, 2013 -  Aicacia Young

I’m not usually much of a boulderer. I boulder at the gym for strength training periodically, but it’s not my favorite type of climbing. A number of awkward falls sort of paved the way for me to enjoy sport climbing much more than bouldering. So, in an attempt to train my weaknesses and get out of my comfort zone, I decided to give bouldering another shot. When the opportunity arose for me to climb at Hueco Tanks, one of the best bouldering destinations in the world, I jumped at the chance. I packed up my barely-used crashpad and my...

The Lockdown, Brawl, and Regionals - Zoe Steinberg

So as I mentioned a while ago, after I went to the Midnight Burn, I had two more comps in November, with nothing after that until regionals.  Both comps were very local, with one being at The Gravity Vault, which is 10 minutes from my house, and the next one at New Jersey Rock Gym, which is only about a 40 minute drive.  A few weeks later, I drove down to Valley Township in PA for regionals.

The week or so after I got back from the red was basically a no-sleep work marathon.  I missed a ton of work, and still had every-day stuff to catch up on, so saying that I was stressed would have been the understatement of the year.  I got back to a normal routine relatively quickly though, and two weekends after I got back from the red I drove down to Pennsylvania for PRG’s annual Midnight Burn comp.
