What a crazy weekend it has been!
On Saturday, I competed at the 3rd annual Portland Boulder Rally!
The day began early, with a 9:30 AM check-in time followed by an interview with ClimbingNarc (click here to view interview). Open qualifiers took place from 11 AM-2 PM, and the field was stacked. So many incredible male/female climbers were competing, it was bound to be tough to break the top 6.
I was so excited to qualify in 5th place! I could not wait to get on the finals problems that night, the setters always have something incredible in store!
Finals were streamed live via LT11 and ClimbingNarc. I love competitions that are streamed because it gives everyone a chance to view the competition, even if they cannot make it to the venue. Great job as always guys!
I placed 6th in finals, and had so much fun! The problems delivered the right amount of difficulty, were technical/powerful/interesting/crowd pleasing, all at the same time. It was awesome to try so many unique new problems.
I apologize for the short recap, but I am dead tired from a day of traveling! I left Portland to fly straight to Maui, where I am climbing/vacationing for a week. I cannot wait for all of the adventures this week will bring...but I will keep everyone updated!
On to the next adventure...
