Last thursday was a good day! I woke up psyched and everyone else seemed to be on the same program.

Luckily, NO snow! I was more psyched than ever and decided today would be the the day to finish some boulders.

However, in the 2 comps where my finger felt ok I managed to get into the semi finals – not too bad considering the lack of preparation.
