Hey everyone!

So it's Tuesday and I'm getting back into the swing of things from my trip to Vermont.  Here's a day by day of what happened!

Wednesday September 21: Flew into Manchester and tooka 2.5 hour car ride to our hotel in Burlington. Arrived around 12:30 AM Vermont time.

Thursday September 22:  This was my day to explore Burlington with my parents!  We walked around town, tried some awesome restaurants, did a little shopping, and mainly focused on resting for the next day.

Friday September 23:  First day of competition!  The weather was awesome today, nice and sunny, but not too hot.  This was the day of qualifiers for men and women.  I flashed all 5 of the problems, tying for first with Alex Johnson.

Saturday September 24:  Second day of competition!  The weather didn't hold up so well today, semi-finals was cancelled due to rain.  Because of this, all of the men and women who made it to semi-finals also advanced to finals.This was really fun because everyone got to compete in finals, so the crowd and the climbers were super psyched.

Unfortunately, I did not top any of the problems, landing me in 7th place.  I am still extremely proud of my performance and can only hope to do better next year!  Congrats to Angie Payne and Ian Dory on the win, that was amazing!

Sunday September 25:  Sadly this was the day that I flew home, I'm still missing the cool weather of Vermont and the fun of the competition!

Thank you so much Pete and Jason, you did an amazing job, as well as the sponsors.

Next on the agenda:

October 1: ABS local at The Phoenix Rock Gym

October 14-15: Yank 'N Yard at Stone Age in Albuquerque

October 22: Psychedelia at The Spot in Boulder

More soon!
