Just wanted to post a quick blog about my most recent competition, the Desert Classic at Focus Climbing Center!
The competition took place on Saturday (9/27) and began with a 3 hour redpoint. I had a great time climbing in the redpoint with my friends and knocking down some fun problems. The top 8 climbers were then taken from the redpoint to onsight finals that evening.
The format for finals was 5 minutes on, 5 minutes off, with 4 problems. My first problem was a tough slab with a heinous mantle at the beginning. I achieved the highpoint and am looking forward to working (and then sending!) the problem this week.
My second problem was on a more vertical wall and had a lot of volumes! I felt confident climbing it and completed the problem on my second attempt. The third problem was powerful with a dyno at the beginning, followed by some burley moves. I also sent this problem on my second attempt and was so excited!
The fourth problem was definitely one of my favorites, it involved a dyno and a double toe hook. I was struggling with the double toe hook so I ended up not using it, which was a wise decision. Near the end of my time I climbed to the highpoint and fell off because I was so pumped! This is another problem I cannot wait to work and send this week!
Overall, the competition was a blast and I am so excited to have walked home with 1st place!
On to the next adventure…
