Finishing Out the Bouldering Season - Zoe Steinberg

Finishing Out the Bouldering Season - Zoe Steinberg
March 06, 2014 -  Zoe Steinberg

Since it is starting to seem like I am always a little behind on blog posts, I am going to try something a little different with the next two posts. Instead of giving a full run through of every comp I have gone to since my last post (I think there have been about 7 of them), I’m going to quickly summarize the events that I went to in this post, and then reflect on them in a couple of weeks in my next post when I have had a little more time to think on them. ...

Comp Season: Understanding the Importance of Failure - Josh Levin

Comp Season: Understanding the Importance of Failure - Josh Levin
February 26, 2014 - 

With ABS Nationals just having come to a close, I want to address a subject most people are keen to avoid: failure. Failure is something that we avoid at all costs in all aspects of life, let alone competition climbing. However, I believe there are many important lessons to be learned from failure, especially when it comes to dealing with high-pressure situations such as in climbing competitions. This past month and a half, I have had the opportunity to compete in a major pro-level bouldering competition on east coast 6 weekends out of 7. So far, almost every...

This past weekend I competed in my second Dark Horse! Last year’s Dark Horse had some fierce competitors and I missed finals by two spots. This year redemption was my goal.I almost forgot there was a Dark Horse at all, but Josh Levin reminded me to buy my tickets a few weeks before the competition. Josh had a bye to finals along with Nick Picarella because they won a previous Dark Horse, so they were in the clear. I had to compete in the qualifying redpoint round. Just like last year, qualifiers was crazy hard. There were a lot...

Changing Seasons: Dark Horse & Livin' Astro - Josh Levin
November 12, 2013 - 

Fall is officially here in New England! Over the past couple months, I’ve transitioned from the summer life of competing and traveling back into my sophomore year classes here at Northeastern. As much as I love traveling and climbing during the summer, there’s something special about coming back to Boston for this time of year. You really can’t beat the crisp apples and amazing colors display from tree leaves, but most importantly, prime climbing temps and the beginning of a new season of the Dark Horse Bouldering Series.Last year, I competed in Dark Horse for the first time. I’d...

Currently I am in South Hadley, Massachusetts waiting out the blizzard Nemo. The entire place is covered in snow, we may have gotten around 2 feet. Today I was supposed to go to the Power Struggle comp in Connecticut, but the snow has delayed the comp to tomorrow. I have been competing a lot these days, the first comp of 2013 was the DarkHorse championship; the last comp in a 4 round series. I won the first round, and got 2nd and 3rd in next two comps. Going into the last round I was really excited. Myself and some...
