I'm not very good at listening to doctors. I don't think I've ever been. But as of today, I managed to make it through an 8wk break from climbing to rest my A2 pulley tendon without going totally insane 😁 The wait was worth it, didn't have a lick of pain today in my tendon, and I got to spend my first day back in the gym with Climb Deaf DC (thanks @dekeyb) where I met some incredible people and learned so much more sign language. It was amazing and I'm so psyched to be back on the wall. This is the longest break I've had to take since getting knee surgery seven years ago, so thank you to everyone who kept me sane. You know who you are, I love you guys ❤️ #climbergirl #climbing #iloveclimbing #climbing_lovers #climbhard #imback #missedthis #sohappy #cantstopsmiling #somuchfun #friendships #friends #loveyouguys #healing #injurednomore #signlanguage #americansignlanguage #asl #deafclimbers #learning #eatmorechalk #chalkmatters #backinbusiness #stronger #determination #boulderdenim @boulderdenim @teamboulderdenim @climbstuffdotcom @frictionlabs @lasportivagram @banjoandbean @8bplus_rockclimbing @deuter @skratchlabs

I’ve been struggling with my mental game in climbing recently. I had a piece pop on me in May completely unexpectedly and it’s really shaken me. I’ve felt like every time I go climbing I have to wrestle with my fear and shove it out of my head before I can climb. It’s leaving me gripped and exhausted every time I try to lead something. Even climbs way below my limit have been making my palms sweat. But last week I went cragging with @ericfarrugia, @mikehatesbolts and @alexa_brams and I just decided to jump on this 11a, Controlled Burn. It starts out super thin and then widens to and overhanging flake with fists/offwidth in the back. I forced myself to lead it and just do my best even though I was shaking while putting on my shoes. In the end I didn’t send, I whipped at the .5s and then took a few more times at the top. I feel bad that I took through the top crux, but I whipped on gear again and I can feel the progress I’m making with my mental block. I know it’s all in my head and it’s difficult to see myself not improving in climbing because of my brain. Anyone have any tips on how they deal with fear? 📸: @mikehatesbolts ————————————————

@cotton1256 sent his first New River Gorge 5.12a today!!!!!! It was awesome to watch him on Reckless Abandon 😊 He climbed with complete control, and even recovered on some holds! I'm so proud of you, Alex! Hard work pays off 💪🏽 ? By: @kerryscott123

The Try hard face says it all. ---When I sent this climb 3 years ago it was Quincy and I's first v12. We both dropped off the jug, and even though this is totally accepted as a valid way to finish the Boulder, I wanted to do it for real and top it out. Almost every time I've gone to north mountain since then Ive tried to top this Boulder, but its proven to be very Stubborn. It wasn't till this weekend that I am finally able to say with confidence that I've climbed "Barefoot on Sacred Ground" 📸 - @suzie_climbs

@florakesselzugaib FIRED THE FUCKING RIG!! Stoked for Flora to send her first Siurana 7c+(5.13a) yesterday. She took a really strong beta burn, rested and cruised the redpoint. 8a next!! Check the story for before and clipping the chains reactions!!! #senditchica #rockclimbing #climbing #spain #cataluna #climbing_is_my_passion #climb #tenayaclimbing #practicalclimbing #hilx #boulderdenim #petzlgram #phillyclimbers #climbing_photos_of_instagram #siurana #girlswhoclimb

What I originally hoped to be a spring project evolved into a full season commitment. The spring quickly became a write off with my gut health not doing so well, and being loaded up on steroids. I gained 35lbs in just 3 weeks making climbing incredibly difficult.
——
My health improved with new drugs eliminating the need for the steroids, and I dropped the weight. However the hot summer months made it nearly impossible to even attempt to climb this thing.
——
A last minute trip to Squamish pushed back trying this project some more. And mandatory break from climbing due to a sprained ankle I suffered on the 2nd last day of my trip meant even more time away.
——
So my ankle still isn’t fully healed, but it’s good enough to climb with. Maybe not take a big fall, but I can climb! The heel hook hurt sure, and I’m suffering because of it today, but it was worth it for the send! Another V12 in the books!

Starting to feel like this hold could be good? But needs to be a bit colder.

Today's @usaclimbing Youth Nationals post comes from Ben Hanna, who is competing in his last nationals. he reminds us to remember our try hard face for those moments at the top of the wall. Good Luck Ben!! @hanna_smash ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Butora Ambassador Brennan Robinson tells us this week about the internal motivation necessary to balance climbing, coaching and school. To find out how he does it, check the linknin our bio!
☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
@brennannnnn : 💥Link in my bio!💥 I recently wrote a blog for @climbbutora about how I balance a very busy college schedule with the amount of training, traveling, and work (at the climbing gym) I have to do on a regular basis. It is easy to be overwhelmed when there is so much going on, so it's important to find a healthy balance between everything and stick to a certain schedule. Click the link if you want to read more about it!

College starts this week, and if I’m honest, I’m kinda nervous. Maybe I’ll just head back to the crag and hide out for a bit.

Excited to get the quick send on this thing. It’s fucking stupid how much climbing is jammed into this little country. 📸 by @jomotg #senditbrah #rockclimbing #climbing #spain #cataluna #climbing_is_my_passion #climb #tenayaclimbing #practicalclimbing #hilx #boulderdenim #petzlgram #phillyclimbers #climbing_photos_of_instagram #margalef
