We were climbing near Bend on Sunday—my husband, John, and our 3 daughters, Coco, Alice and Lili. Alice, who is 7, had forgotten her rock shoes. She REALLY wanted to climb, and was quite upset. “Climb in your sneakers,” I told her. “I CAN’T climb without Stealth!” said Alice, quite loudly as is her nature. “But you do have Stealth on your sneakers,” John was quick to point out.

The Golden Spire Highline sits just outside Golden, CO; about a 20 minute drive from my location in Boulder. There are now two lines bolted in this area and a third to soon be bolted. The lines offer a beginner a great environment to explore and learn how to highline safely.
The US Open of MTB just went down on Memorial day weekend at the wonderful Diablo Freeride Park. The 5 day event was huge, starting on Wednesday May 25th and rolling all the way thru to Sunday the 30th. The US Open brings people and top level riders from around the world. Many world champions where in attendance this past weekend and so were the riders from Giant/HBG trying to take on some of the fastest.

I'm leaving tomorrow for the USA! Plan is staying a couple of days in Boulder,CO chilling and training a bit then drive to Vail,CO fot the 3rd stage of the Bouldering World Cup 2010... I don't have any expectations due to my poor form and low syke on plastic this year but we will see what happens!! I'm sure it will be a great event like every year and it's cool to see some friends I haven't seen in a while!
Ahh Boulder! It's been so long since I've stepped into the bubble, nearly 3 years to be precise. After hearing word of the most groundbreaking competition circuits to date, I received the official invite and decided to put off my rock fondling habits for a quick weekend to check out the hype.
