Adam stuck in Colorado skype time after work--not psyched :(
Me working Le Chninkel! It has been consuming--organizing the Hueco Rock Rodeo and not having Adam here. When I am out climbing I am constantly distracted by what I need to do for the Rodeo. Also without Adam, I go along with the group a lot which is fun (and I am thankful) but you are not always going where you "should" go that day. I have had a handful of days where we kept going to East--it has been good to work out beta and whittle it down but this is a physical problem and crushes your skin. Taking a break from it for a bit over the Rodeo week and then hoping to not leave it behind for next year.
Mina on Mojo
David Mason sending Full Service
I've been psyched to climb with David Mason and Mina Leslie-Wujastyk! These Brits are incredibly strong! There has been a lot of inspiring climbing going down and great beta suggestions :) Thanks Mina! Over the course of last spring, summer and fall David sent me training programs. I am happy that we got to climb with each other for many reasons but selfishly so he can see my weaknesses and put together my next training program for 2014!
Last day for me on East Mountain with Sam Davis and Ana Burgos
Ana B crushing it!
