This past weekend I competed in the SCS Open Nationals at Movement Climbing + Fitness in Boulder, Co. I didn't prepare for this competition as much as I would have liked but results showed I was in pretty decent shape! 

Friday evening was Qualifiers and my initial impression was the routes looked a little bit easier than last years.  Last year I finished 14th and my whole goal for the competition was to best that. I didn't warm up enough for the first climb but I manged to finish the route! Already an improvement than last year! After staying really psyched (and flash pumped) I climbed really well on the second qualifier, falling off the finish hold. I was so happy! Only five people flashed both routes which meant I placed 6th and they took 8 to Finals.

Isolation for Finals was awesome getting to hang out and warm up with all my fellow Five Ten athletes and youth competitors. Five Ten Athletes in Finals were Josh Levin, Noah Ridge, Carlo Traversi, Jon Cardwell, Elan Jonas Mcrae, Sasha DiGuilian, Delaney Miller, Cicada Jenerik, Nina Willias, Kyra Condie, Angie Payne, and Megan Martin - which basically meant Five Ten had the best showing in Finals! My climb in Finals went really well and I felt like I climbed the best I could at that time. My showing put me in 8th place for the weekend which I could not have been happier about. A huge improvement from last year and I am already counting down the days until next year!

Thanks to Five Ten for always supporting me. Proud to be apart of the Brand of the Brave.
