2014 ABS Nationals

Hey everyone!

What an exciting weekend.  ABS Nationals is one of my favorite competitions of the year, I love being able to see all of my friends and to get on some incredible setting.

The weekend started off when I flew into Denver and drove into Colorado Springs on Thursday. I relaxed for the night and went to bed early so I had a good night of rest before qualifiers on Friday morning.

Qualifiers went really well.  I sent 3 out of the 5 problems, putting me in 7th place going into semi-finals.  I loved the setting in qualifiers, with my favorite problem being problem 2.  I loved the way it was set and had a lot of fun climbing the problem.

Semi-finals took place the following day, on Saturday morning.  24 women were taken to semi-finals, and it was an incredibly stacked field.  Unfortunately I did not send any problems in semi-finals, so I dropped down to 21st place and did not make finals.

Overall, I am very happy with how I climbed this weekend and I feel like I have made a lot of improvements from last year.  Nationals was a blast and I am looking forward to getting back into training!

On to the next adventure…

2013 Vertical Hold Crank and Crush

Hey everyone!

What a crazy few weeks of traveling it has been.  Portland, Maui, San Diego, and back home to Arizona, I’m struggling to keep the days straight!

For a quick recap of the competition, it was awesome!  Vertical Hold in San Diego always hosts great competitions with an awesome turnout.  The problems were set hard for the competition, so it was fun to have a challenge.  After the red point, there was a dyno comp, which was crazy fun to watch and to watch everyone try the different dynos.  It still amazes me how far some people can dyno!

I ended up placing first in open alongside one of my good climbing friends Julian Bautista.  We grew up competing together, so it’s always fun to see him and compete together again.

Now I’m back home for a few weeks and getting settled back into the non-traveling groove!

On to the next adventure…
