MEC Bouldering Nationals 2014 - Sebastien Lazure

MEC Bouldering Nationals 2014 - Sebastien Lazure
April 03, 2014 - 

It was the Canadian Bouldering Championships last weekend at Coyote Rock Gym in Ottawa. The organization of the comp decided to change the format and add a semifinal round only a week prior to the comp. This format change added a little pressure to everyone as only top 6 competitors would advance to finals letting no room for errors. It was a mental challenge, but I had prepare all season to be ready for that comp and I was feeling good. My main focus was to be able to get in the ”zone” to be able to climb...

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...

Gravity National Champs 2013 (Angel Fire, NM) - Armen Davis

Gravity National Champs 2013 (Angel Fire, NM) - Armen Davis
August 09, 2013 - 

Another great weekend of racing! The track was classic Angel Fire – rough, fast, and loose. It was probably one of the most fun courses offered in the Rocky Mountains. Each day of practice offered different conditions because of either overnight rain or being blown-out from the day before. So in that aspect, it was a great test of the riders’ abilities. On Saturday, I was very fortunate to be able to ride with fellow Five Ten athlete Troy Brosnan around the mountain. It was an awesome opportunity to be able to ride with...

SCS Nationals - Angela Payne

SCS Nationals - Angela Payne
April 10, 2013 - 

This past weekend I stepped out of my comfort zone and competed in the SCS Nationals in Boulder, CO.  Sport climbing is not something that is completely foreign to me, as I was exclusively a sport climber for 5 years of my youth, but it is definitely not something I do very often anymore.  So, I knew that this event would be a challenge for me.  Given that and the fact that it was at Movement, just a few blocks from my house, it was hard to resist.  

My First ABS Nationals - Seth Rogers

My First ABS Nationals - Seth Rogers
March 28, 2013 -  Seth Rogers

I've always been better at ropes and speed than bouldering.  I've been to 3 sport and speed nationals but this was my first bouldering nationals.  What a great experience!  It was held in Colorado Springs in the civic auditorium where they built a wall just for the nationals.
