Elise Sethna  Here's to the adventures that inspire us to dream bigger, go further and experience deeper

It sure isn't pretty but I did my first ring muscle up today! I tried this for the first time a couple weeks ago and failed miserably then today BAM πŸ’₯ I guess all I needed was a little self motivation πŸ˜‚ #muscleup #hivenorthshore #hivevancouver #training #bouldering #motivation #happydance β€’
Thanks for zooming in on my try hard face πŸ“Ή@eric.sethna πŸ™„

Thanks for making me laugh for 23 years @eric.sethna πŸ€— #laughingatyou #bestbro #nationalsiblingsday

"Be brave, start cold" he said πŸ™„ πŸ˜‚Learned our lesson that it's a little too early for spring climbing at Planet X but optimism is always the best method and getting lost in the mountains looking for dry rock (even in knee deep snow and ice) is still one of my favourite activities.... hopefully next time it actually ends in some rock climbing though!!! 🀞🏽

Thank you everyone for all the kind birthday wishes yesterday. My heart is so full! This year has been more challenging, exciting and unpredictable than ever before and I am so thankful everyday for the people, places and experiences that have helped shape my perspective. β€’
I have no idea what this next year will hold but the fun is always in the mystery.... my heart and mind are open for the next adventure!!! β€’
πŸ“·@lauraszanto from our unforgettable trip on Robson this past summer

That moment when pain, exhaustion, desire and fun all collide into one big emotion! πŸ’₯
Thanks @alex_fricker for capturing the try hard at this years Bouldering National Championships

Throwback to a week before Nationals when @freeyourmindandclimb and I grabbed a double send of techy "Soul Slinger" v9 in sunny California (video includes the classic sending happy dance) β€’
Bishop was not only soooo much fun but ended up being a huge mental confidence booster before the National champs the week after. Trips like this one always remind me why I truly love this sport and the places and community it introduces me to. It was @jmtay89 and I's first time to Bishop and we can't wait to go back for more! #rockclimbing #happydance #buttermilks #bishop #bouldering

This weekend I pushed passed a lot of personal barriers. It has been a hectic year to say the least and I was insecure about competing without feeling completely prepared to succeed. β€’
It is important to have goals and be confident in our abilities to achieve them, but, for me, it is even more important to let go of my expectations and accept that after all I have or have not done to prepare I may not walk away with the result I want. Taking this competition one round at a time and having fun with the process helped me relax and grow confidence climb by climb. Beyond excited to have secured a spot on the Canadian National team and walk away with a bronze medal. β€’
A HUGE congratulations to @alannah_yip @allisonvest @seblazure @jj_mah @mccollsean and all the competitors for an incredible and inspiring performance. A thank you to the route setters and @rjf_climbing for one of the most fun competitions I have ever competed in πŸŽ₯@boilerroomclimbing

Here is a clip of me on the 3rd semifinal problem... the boulders were extremely physical and mentally tough this morning and demanded pretty much everything I had in the tank. BEYOND stoked to have made it to the final round among some of the strongest climbers I know!!!! Nothing to lose... ready to give er all tonight 🀞🏽πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ•Ί
