Mental Barriers, Breaks, and Breakthroughs - Jesse Warren

Mental Barriers, Breaks, and Breakthroughs - Jesse Warren
September 14, 2014 - 

We all experience barriers in our climbing. Certain grades, routes, or styles that we just can’t seem to get past. Going into the start of 2014, I felt like my climbing had been stagnating. I had a good 2013, but I didn’t feel like my climbing was progressing. I was fit, climbing well, but it felt like I had reached a barrier. Would I continue to get stronger? Improvement inevitably slows down and grinds to a halt, and it felt like I had reached this point. I began to settle into this mindset, frustrated but complacent with my lack...

Even extremely busy I feel guilty for not checking in for a bit...While these blogs and connecting with our community are always great, life on the road and climbing often occupy all of our time. Stories are always worth telling, I just need to make it more a priority. Regardless, here I am, back in Colorado for some time before the next circuit of climbing begins. I started in Colorado some months ago when I traveled to Portland for the annual PBR. I didn't know what to expect at first, especially since I was nursing a moderately wounded shoulder...

Spring in Squamish and Summer in Seattle - Jesse Warren

Spring in Squamish and Summer in Seattle - Jesse Warren
November 09, 2013 - 

After a winter trip to Thailand, I returned to Squamish for the remainder of winter. I arrived back just in time for the January dry spell that seems to always occur here each year. It’s a shame that most people experience Squamish in the hot, slightly humid days of summer. It really is the only predictable time to visit, but they miss out on the small windows of stickiness that occur when temperatures hover around freezing during the winter. So much of Squamish’s friction dependent climbing is more enjoyable on these few, sticky and cold days. During this time...

Fall /Winter 2012 - Squamish, Horne Lake, and Colorado - Jesse Warren

Fall /Winter 2012 - Squamish, Horne Lake, and Colorado - Jesse Warren
December 27, 2012 -  Jesse Warren

This is my first post since joining the Five Ten Team, so here's a run down of what I've been up to this fall and winter. September I headed back up to Squamish for the start of the school year. September and October continued a stretch of amazing weather in the Pacific Northwest, which allowed for a ton of climbing in Squamish. I got on the amazing Eurasian Eyes, a 5.13 knife edge arete climb about a third of the way up the face of the 2000 foot tall chief.

After weeks on the road calling parking lots home and sleeping in a space the size of a double-wide coffin I’ve returned to civilized society. For the first time in 6 years I made it home in time to join my family for Thanksgiving. In between the alternating rounds of voracious food annihilation and family banter I took some time to reflect on where the last few months of 2012 have taken me.

Squamish 2: The Reckoning - Flannery Shay-Nemirow

Squamish 2: The Reckoning - Flannery Shay-Nemirow

I'm long past being 'in' Squamish, that infernal rain has started, and the climbing season there has come to it's yearly close. Squamish holds a dear place in my heart, the destination of my first international climbing trip, the first hard boulder problems I flashed, the start of my first solo road trip. The forest didn't disappoint this go around, either. It was my third time there and most extended visit yet.
