    Trip

    We had such a fantastic week last week! I didn’t send anything of importance, but I did learn a lot about what my body is capable of after climbing for 5 days in a row! 

    We stayed at LRC for the first two days, then our friend Ciara took us on a tour of Rocktown for one. She had us try a TON of the classics that were v7 and under. At 3 days on, sending was tough, but we got close on so many awesome problems- just ran out of gas at the end. I’m excited to have all the beta down for next trip to Rocktown. Hopefully, I’ll be able to tick a bunch in a row. After a half day at LRC the following day, we decided to get on the road. It was supposed to rain pretty heavily the next day, and we didn’t want to drive back in the storm. 

    I wanna give a shout out to Hookmaker. That stuff is legit. Originally, it was made for horse hooves, but it heals skin so well. I felt better on this trip, skin-wise, than I have on shorter trips! 

    After a rest day, we went to Cowell to try some local problems. I didn’t feel 100%, but I felt pretty good after a long warm-up! I am fully impressed with the body’s ability to recover, and I actually made progress on projects. 

    With warm weather creeping in, I feel my bouldering days are numbered, if not over. Time for sport climbing :(

    Just wrapped an amazing week in Chattanooga! I got pretty close on this, but I guess it&#8217;ll have to wait until next season.

    I&#8217;ve been reading this, and it is excellent! I know most climbers aren&#8217;t &#8220;coached.&#8221; And I feel like the information in this book could be exactly what I need to break through this plateau! 

I&#8217;ll do a full write up on it when I finish it, but the main thing that has stuck with me is- don&#8217;t be afraid to suck in front of people. 

Dave talks about how someone may see you climb and fail, but they aren&#8217;t going to judge you by this, or think of you as less of a person.  It&#8217;s a fleeting moment. Utilize the humility of the moment to keep moving forward. 

It&#8217;s little things like that all throughout this book. It&#8217;s things we know, but we may never actually think about. 

I&#8217;m excited to put some of these practices into action on my trip next week!

  7. Lunch

    Yesterday I was eating lunch at Big Orange. My shoulder has been bothering me a little bit, so I reached out to stretched it. In doing so, I accidentally hit a man walking by in the penis. 

    It was an interesting lunch.

    NOT FOR ME. 

     
  9. Spring Break

    I have 5 photo sessions and a wedding standing between me and spring break! 

    We went back and forth on where we were going to take this trip for a long time. It came down to Joe’s Valley, Flagstaff, Boulder, or Chattanooga. We have friends all over that we want to see, but at the end of the day, we settled on Chattanooga again. I had a couple of shoots that had to be rescheduled that cut into our spring break time. If we went west, we’d end up driving as much as we’d be climbing. (and that is just dumb) Plus! I’m really close on some cool problems at LRC, so I think we’re going to go back there for a few days. 

    We’re also going to check out Rocktown for the first time. I’ve heard great things about that place. I can’t wait!

  10. Fantastic birthday weekend in Chattanooga this weekend. It was SO FUN. It was a little warm for sending, and my dumb rotator cuff has been giving me trouble. I did make a lot of progress on some projects that I’ve been working on for a while, so I walked away happy :)
