3Q's for Young Gun Winner Grace McKeehan

3Q's for Young Gun Winner Grace McKeehan
March 10, 2015 -  Josh Levin

The Young Gun Award was created to recognize up-and-coming climbers who truly represent the values of the climbing community. In addition to recognizing an individual’s outstanding competitive climbing achievements, this award honors their commitment to the sport and exemplary sportsmanlike conduct. This year’s Young Gun Award went to Five Ten athlete Grace McKeehan, who established herself on the competition scene this past year by being the only athlete to qualify for the US Open National Team in bouldering, sport climbing, and speed climbing. She’s made the US Youth National Team 10 total times and trains on Team...

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...

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.

The Nightmare Before Sendmas (Hopefully!!!) - Erica Carlson

The Nightmare Before Sendmas (Hopefully!!!) - Erica Carlson
November 27, 2014 -  Erica Carlson

About a week ago, we had the first Alberta Climbing Association (ACA) comp of the year and it was hosted by my home gym, Calgary Climbing Centre. These comps are always a blast and are very well organized. Simon, the manager of the south location, has been hosting comps for 10+ years and has ironed out pretty much all the kinks you can have in a competition. This competition consistently runs on time, which is testimony to the level of organization they have. Unfortunately, this is the first time in over 6 years that I was not...

I am a champion! This is the last competitions blog for the competition session 2013-2014. It is a perfect moment to say thank to my sponsors Organic, Allez up and of course, FIVE TEN. All their support in many different ways helped me to improve my climbing level and allowed me to participate in many different competitions for this year. There was a Gala for the Quebec circuit. It was a very nice reunion. Well organized, nice people and climbers everywhere. The FQME (Quebec federation of mountaineering and climbing) presented all the new projects for...

SCS 2014 Regionals - Zoe Steinberg

SCS 2014 Regionals - Zoe Steinberg
May 30, 2014 -  Zoe Steinberg

SCS regionals were a few weeks ago, down in Rockville, Maryland.  I drove down the day before the comp, which was also my last day of classes, to stay with my friend Kerry for the night.  We ended up having a 4-hour AP biology study session for most of the evening, since we were both taking the exam the next Monday, and crashed at about 11:30 since the comp was the next morning.
