Um yes.

Sooooo day 1 was amazing! I went solo to Mount Evans and, well, I SENT MY PROJECT! Oh man what a beautiful feeling. Sunny, windy, and 60 degrees, I sat underneath the Dali recalling past memories of failure. I decide to give it a go... to the dyno, but no send. I sat there looking at the problem and then went up on top of the boulder to look at the scenery. It was such a gorgeous day at Evans today, and blah blah blah, I got inspired, and blah blah blah. I went down to the climb, and strapped on my shoes. Next thing I knew I was holding the slopey jug, smiling from ear to ear. I know the Dali isn't groundbreaking, but I had such a mental block on the thing that it felt really good to push through on the first day of my trip.

Next I went to beirstadt and did all the moves except for the last one. Really psyched on this one, I think it will go pretty quick. I feel really good for not bouldering since March. So excited!

I'm going climbing tomorrow so I'll keep you posted.

Stay psyched!

Hey there. Long time no talky talky. To make a long story short I'm in Colorado, after half a summer of working in Auburn, and a great week spent in Oklahoma. So I'm here, in colorful Colorado and I have a month of nothing but climbing. Yes!

My first day here has been a bust, so far. I almost went bouldering by myself to Mt. Evans, but instead I waited around for a climbing partner and got rained out. Boooo, no climbing on day 1. Only 29 days left. Sigh.

I've got a new rope coming my way tomorrow (hopefully). It's a Mammut Infinity 9.5. I'll let you all know how it handles, wears, and treats me over the next couple of months.

I'll definetely be posting more now that I actually have something to post about.

Talk to you soon.

Im out.
