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...

Changing Seasons: Dark Horse & Livin' Astro - Josh Levin
November 12, 2013 - 

Fall is officially here in New England! Over the past couple months, I’ve transitioned from the summer life of competing and traveling back into my sophomore year classes here at Northeastern. As much as I love traveling and climbing during the summer, there’s something special about coming back to Boston for this time of year. You really can’t beat the crisp apples and amazing colors display from tree leaves, but most importantly, prime climbing temps and the beginning of a new season of the Dark Horse Bouldering Series.Last year, I competed in Dark Horse for the first time. I’d...

When you think of keeping up with climbing, Texas A&M is generally not the school that comes to mind. Its around no rock, and its rec center is a sorry excuse for a playground, and I was beyond worried when I first got here and realized what I was dealing with.As far as the climbing goes, I have been surprised. The route setters at the schools boulder wall are awesome, and the hold quality is really good. They max out around v8 so I generally will spend one day when they set new boulders and try to do every...

SCS Youth Nationals and Pre-Worlds - Kyra Condie

SCS Youth Nationals and Pre-Worlds - Kyra Condie
July 30, 2013 -  Kyra Condie

The two weeks before nationals this year I went to stone summit for a pre-nationals training camp. This was my third year doing it and it's amazing how much it helps. When I climbed there the first day I felt like I had absolutely no endurance and thought I was screwed for nationals... But, after two weeks in that gym, you get endurance whether you want it or not.

Dominion Riverrock and Team VXi Review - Josh Levin

Dominion Riverrock and Team VXi Review - Josh Levin
May 23, 2013 -  Josh Levin

Last weekend, I competed at the 2013 Dominion Riverrock Boulder Bash. I’ve been watching videos of this competition for years, and man did it look cool. After experiencing the event firsthand now, I can say with absolute certainty that it is the sickest, raddest, most awesome bouldering competition I have ever competed in. EVER. I guess you could say I had a good time. Dominion Riverrock has been going on for several years now as an outdoor sports and music festival located on the James River in Richmond, Virginia. Two years ago, the event organizers decided to...

2013 SCS Open Nationals!! - Kyra Condie
April 10, 2013 -  Kyra Condie

This last weekend I competed in my second ever Open SCS nationals! When I competed last year I finished 8th place in sport climbing, and 3rd place in speed! Going into the comp this year I wanted to do better than last year, but the female category had some really tight competition.
