This past weekend I competed in the dominion river rock comp. It was a crazy new wall that was quite fun to climb on. I thought that it was going to be a bouldering competition, however when i arrived, i soon noticed that our boulders were more of routes and consisted of more than 25 moves out a near horizontal cave! the first two days of the competition were a learning experience for me and by the last day i had a good plan worked out for the final climb! I planned out my resting positions and where i was going to chalk and made sure to breathe a lot through all of the sections of the climb. I was fortunate enough to get to the crux section not that pumped and fired the climb to the top! I was the first to do this. later on in the comp, Zach Lerner also did the final climb and since he beat me on a previous day he won the comp and i got second. It was fun to do a comp after not having done one in a while!
Now i am back in Maryland and training hard for my trip to Africa coming soon! I cant wait for all the projects awaiting!! The Schengen Files is also coming along and we are getting ready for a July 12th release on hdclimbingvideos.com!!
