Can't beat a bargain bucket.
Back in the day me and @swanington
Use to grab a KFC after going to the gym, coz you gotta get your protine in 😅. To honnor then days of pure gains I made him this chalkbag he can now take his KFC to the crag without the greasy fingers 💪🧗♂️ Yes I did go to KFC just for this picture
When you try to find out what's wrong with your third move and then simply send it in the all over third go :)
Made the sisters of that blue rated #boulder prettty quick too (the Pink and brown ones), so I decided to work on that yellow problem (second highest rated in our gym) which is pretty cool too.
And I moved into the uiaa's 8th grade in leading on the rope without toprope-bouldering before. Pretty awesome - I just wanted to go for a quick girls-boulder-Session and ended up 6,5 hrs of climbing and bouldering with friends from friends from friends I met the first time.
Just. Move. On. 💪😎
This the first problem I have contributed to the #moonboard database; a combination of moves I found to be an enjoyable challenge. So much so, it took me 6 sessions to send. Probably choss, definitely soft. Try for yourself, "Perpetually Soft." #bouldering#trainingforclimbing
At the end of a long session, I sent my project “Standing on the Head of the Dragon”. Unfortunately I was so tired, I couldn’t bring myself to actually stand on the dragon’s head. So here is my victory picture - laying on the head of the dragon. I’ll have to back to get a video of a send cause this problem is one of the coolest boulders I have ever encountered.
A pesar de las cuestas y el calor siempre es un placer volver a Albarracín, catalogado como uno de los Pueblos Más Bonitos de España. ¿Algún pueblo de los que hayas visitado que te sorprendiera? A mi Conques, en Francia, me enamoró.
I’ve been climbing at The Glen for almost 20 years, but in almost all of those years I’ve had more outdoor bouldering days at crags out of the province/country than here/in Ontario. I’ve had 50-problem days at both HP40 and Stone Fort, but am not sure that I’ve climbed 50 different problems total at my ‘home crag’. Hoping to change that this year!
Here’s another fun V4, Thoughts and Prayers, in the Birthday Boulders cluster of Lower Romper Room.
Trying hard on some made up route, connecting a v3 to a v5. ☺️ Climbing is fun. This photo is from back in Leavenworth, and while I have very few photos of Wyoming, I am blown away by the climbing here! Next stop, I’ll be backpacking in the Wind River Range.
I just finished reading Educated by Westover. I was moved along by her story quickly, but with such depth I think it will stay with me a while.
That dyno of today's session @rocktown.eu with @flo_gwxy was pretty nice!🤸 Little update to how I feel: As the supplements I am taking atm seam to be effective, I am way more happy, fit and finally feel healthy again. Super motivated for the upcoming setting and training sessions and South Africa in less than a month 😍
Proud of this one.
💎New Base Line (8B+/V14)💎
After a disappointing BBCs, it’s been rejuvenating to get away to the continent with @blochobbit, our first climbing trip abroad in over 10 years of working together. After watching Mikey compete at the Paraclimbing World Championships, we headed for the forest of Magic Wood, home of Europe’s best summer bouldering and this iconic line. On my first trip here I merely felt the holds and imagined the positions, putting down any idea of ever sending as ludicrous, the level was too high and I would simply never reach it. After 2 years of progression, I returned last year with enough confidence (and a worsening finger injury 😅) to try with some focus, but after not managing multiple moves in a couple of sessions it was returned back to the life list, a climb for a distant future. This trip, after a year of suffering in service of my climbing and what I hoped was a new level, I wanted to absorb myself in the climb and find out exactly what it would take to succeed. My initial expectations were that these 2 weeks would not be enough, and I would return in the Autumn with better conditions and specific training informed by my attempts this trip. In the end, it took just 3 sessions to piece it together.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to see a once impossible goal realized. Climbing for me is optimized by this process, setting out to achieve something pointless and arbitrary just because the challenge inspires you and devoting yourself to that end. In the end, it’s not really the send or win that matters, but what you learn along the way that you’ll carry with you. In that way climbing reflects life, and it’s a life I’m very happy living for the time being.

If you get the timing right, this can be your hiking view in Prescott, Arizona. While the granite boulders in Watson Lake make for the picture-perfect view, the ones surrounding the lake and spread around the area are superb for climbing.

Alpine towers and wildflowers. That’s what Saturdays are made of.
