I went to dark horse this past weekend with @vladthe1mpaler @dynomattb @wrhwrh and @mrbaker_adventures in Boston and had a great time! This was the hardest climb on my scorecard(the 8th hardest in the comp) even though it was probably only around V6. I won't talk about what I ended up placing, but congrats to @stephcelommi and @kevin.salami for making finals!!! Regionals is in a mere 2 weeks now, so I definitely have to go hard on the training this next week!

Here's a cool 12 a I onsighted on lead at new Columbia this past Sunday. Even though it was super soft, it was pretty fun. Dark Horse is tomorrow and I'm super excited to compete in open this year! I also have a new project at Timo: a super cool, low percentage 13d that I only had 5 falls on my flash go. I've got to start working on endurance again if I want to send it! 📸:@august_rush44

I tried... my first go at editing some photos together with photoshop. Also sent a sweet 13a at the gym this evening. I'm starting to get my ropes psych back! I had almost flashed it on Saturday, but the hour of endurance earlier that morning got me too pumped and I ended up falling on the second to last clip. Anyways, dark horse is this weekend and I'm excited to compete in open for my first time! Even though it will be incredibly difficult to make finals, I'll try my best!

I don't have many videos from the Vertical Rock comp this past Saturday, so here's another climb from the comp in October. Dark Horse is in 2 weeks, so I've really got to step up the training! Last year, I was super unprepared for the crimpy, techy climbs they set, but I know what to expect this year!

Arriving an hour late to the comp? Check. Traversing for 5 minutes as my warm-up? Check. Not drinking any water during the entire climbing time? Check. Support from @in2thedepths on my 3rd climb of the day? Check. Mom filming? Check. Falling on the last move of climb number 53, 8 times, without sending? Check. Still getting top ten (7th place if you want me to be specific)? Check. Even though I didn't feel super strong today, I'm proud of my finishing placement! Huge props to @vladthe1mpaler @cbrody31 @martindoingstuff and @elan.eskin for 1st place in their respective categories! Congrats to @alexclimber23 @aaron_bergman and Elise for 2nd place, and huge props to @n.schulhof for an awesome 4th place finish! It's great to see your progress this past couple months man! Only one month till regionals, so it's time to step up the training some more!

It all started with a simple suggestion from @eric.jerome earlier this year. Then the first projecting session in July, with temperature and humidity way to high to even come close to the crux section. I left sweaty, bleeding, with ripped skin, and covered in bug bites, but I was more motivated than ever. After 2 months of a new hangboard protocol, I returned. Got the crux section clean in isolation, but failed with every try from the bottom. After 1 1/2 hours, I got some new beta, but I was too tired to stick it from the bottom. Another day without a send. More disappointment, ripped skin, blood, but less bug bites, however, I was still motivated. Back to the present, 4 months after the day I first saw this boulder. Another month of hangboard, but there was so much more progress this time. I got to the boulder, warmed up as best I could, set up the camera, brushed the holds, set up the pads, put on my shoes, and sat down at the start holds. First try. I pulled into the start position, got to the first hard move, stuck it and kept going. Got to the crux section and set up my feet. I stuck the first move. Set up my feet and went for the next hold. Stuck it. To my disbelief, I had sent the boulder on my very first try of the day!!! Huge thanks to Eric for recommending such an amazing boulder!

For those of you who think I actually train like crazy, I really don't. This workout is pretty simple, but very effective. This is one of the hangs from one of my hang board workouts last week. It's a 10 second hang on a 3/4 pad crimp +70lbs. I do 5 hangs total with a 3 minute rest between each one. Thanks @aaron_bergman for this!

Had a pretty good start to the comp season yesterday with a 5th place finish! I didn't think I climbed super well, but ended up sending my 2 hardest climbs on my scorecard in the last hour. The first one shown in the video is climb number 68, and the second is 70. Both were totally different styles, the first being very technical and crimpy, while the second was pretty powerful on slopers and really balancey at the end. Congrats to @vladthe1mpaler @elan.eskin and Elise for getting first place in their categories!

Start offset 1-2 and 5-7-9 no matching. Also got 1-5-7-9 no matching, but not on video, first comp of the season is next week for me and I'm super excited for it! -

Sweet FA on the moonboard from Tuesday, Loudness-7a+. After falling on the last move way too many times, I finally sent it. Probably a bit soft, but it is probably the best climb I have set so far! -

Here's Truck Driver-V5 I sent at Rocks State Park today. After finally figuring out the first move, a big move off of a high heel and a good smear, I was able to snag the send pretty easily. I remember that only 7 months ago I was struggling super hard on just the top part, but now it feels so much easier!

1-5 ☑️another campusing goal achieved! I had probably tried this over 30 times in the past couple weeks, but something clicked yesterday! Since it's my week off of hangboard, it was the perfect time to do some extra campusing. Also, if any of my old teammates want to know which comps I'm going to, I'm going to Vert and Radnor.
