Phil Chai  Purveyor of Single Digit Problems on IG. 5'3" with -1 🐵. Plus I hate slab. Damn you slab! 😭 Average climber chuffin' through chossy climbs.

Good day at #nuttreeboulders. Sent Regulate (v5) and Scootchums (v6) and an assortment of other fun choss. So nice, I did them both twice. Temps were in the high 60s to low 70s. Sending temps! PC: The nice family guy with his wife and kiddos. Climb: Scootchums, V6, Nut Tree, Vacaville, CA.

"You got it" aka Bro-spotting: pronunciation (ewe-goawt-the-us). Phrase / Verb. What people mainly say when they don't feel like spotting someone. Adds + 25% confidence and + 10% try hard (i.e., gives 110%) to the climber's abilities. Here's a #tbt on a Friday to @maresquan and Blair bro-spotting @_judas_prius_ and probably thinking about lunch. 😂 Alpine start tomorrow in California for some #nuttreeboulders. Climb: Better Than Coffee, V3, Joe's Valley, UT. FYI: I remember almost falling off this boulder trying to take this picture.

Sufferfest 2017 should be coming to a close soon. I had the boulders all to myself. It was a brisk 106F, but with the breeze, it felt like it was no hotter than 102ish. A Texas cold front is on its way with temps below 100F next week! I'll be in Sacramento this weekend and bouldering at #nuttreeboulders! 70s in the morning! Reminds me of temps back in Joe's. Here's an early #tbt to my first time at Joe's earlier this year and @austin.the.one.they.call.oz continuing the send train 🚂 on Pimpin' (Jeans). Climb: Pimpin' Jeans, V3, Joe's Valley, UT.

Update: Niagara Glen is wet. I'm on vacation, but thinking about this place. Soon Hueco, soon. Here's a #fbf to an awesome trip earlier this year to Hueco; @m1chael_pro_ doing some work on this classic climb. Climb: Ultramega, V8, Hueco, El Paso, TX.

It looks like I'm going to Red Rock soon. I'm probably going after another short trip to visit my family in California. I'm feeling pretty good again. I'm sitting around 134 lbs (not a typo) and ready for something other than greasy @$$ #atx limestone. I'm in Toronto this week and #niagaraglen this weekend. If anyone is available to climb, let me know! Otherwise, it's going to be a lot of #honnolding. Here's a pic from last year's trip to Vegas. Climb: Angel Dyno, V7, Red Rock, NV.

You know what's great about a 40 foot sloper traverse? Nothing.

I thought Cromagnum Memorial would be an easy V6 send. Not so much. At least me and @james.p.maloney got some laps in on Whipping Post and the Borg this morning. It wasn't too hot, just humid. And yesterday, we welcomed @thisisralston to #atx bouldering. It's not very good, but we go with what we got. Good meeting you and @jamiller87. I'll see you guys out there sometime. Climb: Left of Crack, V1, Greenbelt, Austin, TX.

Another Sufferfest in the books. Why is climbing so hard when it's 💯 F in Austin? Here's @swannard at least having some fun in this ridiculous heat. We should be able to crush during Fall and Winter!!! Climb: Unknown, V-something, Greenbelt, Austin, TX.

From my IG account, you wouldn't know that I have other hobbies. I post only climbing pics because of all my hobbies, I struggle the most with climbing. This account chronicles my journey, and the process of me working at this craft. I don't know how most people feel, but I don't savor completing something as much as I enjoy the roller coaster of emotions that come with working through a problem (whether it be climbing-related or otherwise) and seeing progress. Looking back this photo, I see an amazing amount of progress in myself. I hope you have a chance to sit back and enjoy the process as much as I have. PC: @shelleyelena .

Have you ever climbed something and thought, "This should go down quick"? And then, a year goes by and you're like, "Why the hell have I not finished this problem!" This problem is one of those types (of problems). At least I'm slowly making progress. Maybe next session? What's your nemesis climb or problem? Climb: Hank's Right, V7, Greenbelt, Austin, TX. PC: @james.p.maloney .

It was nice today! Y'all missed out. It won't be this nice again for a few months. Finally I'm seeing progress on stuff I'm working. The training is working, I think. I'm ready for summer to be over. Climb: Left of Crack, V1, Greenbelt, Austin, TX.

Congrats to this lady crusher (@caroline_randolph) putting down both variations of this problem today. It was pretty hard to do with the heat, but training in these conditions will only make you stronger, right? .

Another Sufferfest 2017 session in the books. If we're doing laps on stuff now, we should be able to crush them during cooler temps, right? Anyone else climbing outside during this 🔥 summer? Over 100F and >70% humidity here in #atx. Happy birthday to this crusher @jromeem. He joined us for a greasy day on the rocks. Climb: Whipping Post Right, V4, Greenbelt, Austin, TX.
