The End of A (Perceived) Nightmare (Hopefully!!!) - Erica Carlson

The End of A (Perceived) Nightmare (Hopefully!!!) - Erica Carlson
December 21, 2014 - 

“In choosing our response to circumstance, we powerfully affect our circumstance. When we change one part of the chemical formula, we change the nature of the results.” This quote has been quite important in getting me through the last few weeks. I’m now coming off two competitions that I did not get the result I wanted (or feel I should be happy with) and I’ve been having a rough go, mentally, with training as well. It’s tough to always keep this in mind but really valuable. Both competitions felt like quite the mental beat...

Fighting Through Ups and Downs - Nic Rummel

Fighting Through Ups and Downs - Nic Rummel
December 15, 2014 -  Nic Rummel

This last month has definitely been a down part in my training. Although set backs hurt one's ego, it is important to take the lessons they give. Tendonitis ravaged my radius borealis. The pain, although not unbearable, makes training impossible. In the last month or so I moved to easier terrain and healed up. This involved stretching, reverse wrist curls and too many narrow push ups. I had to make a change in order to make it through.

Sickness and Recovery - Christian Muench

Sickness and Recovery - Christian Muench
December 14, 2014 -  Muench

During November and the first half of December, a nasty recurring sickness prevented me to focus on hard ascents outdoors or efficient training inside. Nevertheless, I kept trying “Chaos in Palumbia” (8c+) for several days, including a foggy session with only one degree. I could’t feel anything in my fingers or feet when I got to the crux of the route after twenty meters of climbing. I also spend another day at Schleierwasserfall being sick. This day, in a short period of feeling healthier, I climbed “Siempre Secco” (8b, snd go), just before I felt...

Sweet Southern Sandstone - Angela Payne

Sweet Southern Sandstone - Angela Payne
December 14, 2014 -  Angela Payne

October & November were the months of sandstone for me. Sandstone is hands down my favorite type of rock, although it isn’t the rock I climb on most often. I grew up climbing on sandstone, and maybe that’s part of the reason I love it so much. The style of climbing that sandstone creates does not always play to my strengths, and sometimes quite the opposite. But something about it is just appealing to me – the aesthetics, the texture, the incredible fun it almost always seems to lead to. The sandstone that I...

My Last ABS Season - Zoe Steinberg

My Last ABS Season - Zoe Steinberg
December 08, 2014 -  Zoe Steinberg

There have definitely been times where I’ve neglected to update this as much as I should, but I think the time span of when I last posted until now definitely takes the prize. It has been a hugely busy fall, being both my first semester of college and my last season competing in youth bouldering comps, and I have been trying to make the most out of both of these opportunities. So far, everything has been working out well, so I’ll try to keep this short and summarize everything.
