A New Beginning - Eric Sethna

A New Beginning - Eric Sethna
January 18, 2015 -  Eric Sethna

What a year it’s been! In April, I turned the page to a new chapter in my life: Post-graduation. After 4.5 years studying engineering at the University of Waterloo, I finally earned my Iron Ring and spot on the Dean’s Honours List. It’s a rush to be done! University was a character building experience. Aside from the forced learning experiences that come when one leaves the nest, I learned about a lot about myself. From studying to training to friendships to relationships, I’m older and wiser. When it comes to climbing, I was...

The Canadian regional bouldering 2014 - Hans Christian Montenegro

The Canadian regional bouldering 2014 - Hans Christian Montenegro
June 11, 2014 - 

The regional bouldering was at altitude Gym. The competition format was 5 minutes “in” and five minutes “out” for five problems. The isolation zone started too early (6:45am). Generally, I think that is a good idea to start early in order to finish early too, but at 6:45 is too much. Also, I was the second climber for starting the problems then I did not have enough time to warm up properly. I only did some travers and two minutes later it was my turn for the first problem.

MEC Bouldering Nationals 2014 - Sebastien Lazure

It was the Canadian Bouldering Championships last weekend at Coyote Rock Gym in Ottawa. The organization of the comp decided to change the format and add a semifinal round only a week prior to the comp. This format change added a little pressure to everyone as only top 6 competitors would advance to finals letting no room for errors. It was a mental challenge, but I had prepare all season to be ready for that comp and I was feeling good. My main focus was to be able to get in the ”zone” to be able to climb...

Tour de Bloc, Centre Escalade Vertrical 2014 - Hans Christian Montenegro

Tour de Bloc, Centre Escalade Vertrical 2014 - Hans Christian Montenegro
March 09, 2014 - 

This competition was at Vertical Gym in Montréal. There were 67 participants which is a good number of climber for a competition. I saw some friends from Toronto, Ottawa and USA (Josh Larson). The competition had 64 problems for the qualifying round. I found the qualifying round too hard for me. The problems were very powerful, with big movements and they were not very technical. I climbed until 15 second before the end. After three hours of climbing, I completed six problems (between number 64 and 53). This score put me in the 13th place. Then, I...

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...
