Summer Challenge #1


Got to the park at 8am to get an early start and got distracted taking photos of these tiny frogs.

In the hot months it usually helps to try to give yourself a challenge in Hueco to stay psyched for the morning before it gets to hot.  I normally just choose an area and try to do all the boulders there.  This year I'm gonna have to build a wall in order to be strong enough to send all the projects left on the plate.

The End of Summer

Summer just flew by.  Worked a lot and climbed a lot. Wish we got to spend the Fall in Colorado but its time to return to El Paso.

This thing looks a lot taller with Collin on it then when you just look up from the ground.

Colorado

A full time job and climbing means photography has kind of suffered this summer.  Heres a few shots from Guanella pass and Rocky.

Rules of Heat



1.  Bring more water than you think
2.  Go as early as you can.  At least in Hueco it doesn't cool down in the afternoons.
3.  Get where you're going and stay there.  Too much walking in the sun is bad for bouldering.
4.  Don't lay down.  This will kill any remaining motivation you had.
5.  On really hot days try to be out of the park or done training by 11am.  After that the heat just gets oppressive.
6.  Don't climb in the sun (not recommended anytime of the year).

wake up and smell the flowers

Hueco season is not 100% over but Colorado season is just around the corner. There's a fine line between training too much and wrecking yourself for the present and not training enough so that you can send fast at 10000 leagues above sea level in Chaos. . Here's a video too of a new thing that Matt Gentile cleaned up in flag that I was able to do over spring break. There has been a lot of development in flag recently. Check out it out roof town bouldering.
