So, did anyone go to the comp last night?

I went, It was awesome! I cant wait until I get to work on some of the problems that I didn't finish next week. There were 50 people there, which is the largest turnout that they have had. I didn't do as well as I hoped, mostly because I tried to finish the first 7 easy problems as fast as I could and I wore myself out really fast. Oh well, better luck next time. It was a lot of fun and everyone was really nice and helpful, I am definetly inspired to push myself even harder after that.

DOH! I knew I was forgetting something!

I'm glad you liked it! Take any pictures?

I was there - it was fun! It did remind me how much of a beginner I am though! I've decided that I need to work more on endurance, I don't usually climb for more than an hour and a half. I'm really happy about having new routes to work on. The atmosphere was great - everyone was really helpful. I seem to have a lot of new climbing goals now- that was my first competition too!

How did you find the top rope route? (I found it tough!)

I didn't take any pics, mostly because I went there by myself, so I would have been taking pics of people that I didn't know.

Climbing comps are great! This was my fourth one, but I haven't done them since I was like 14. the first one I went into I was about 11 and I got second place! I was so happy. The other three since them havent been as good.

I know what you mean about endurance, I was so dead after and I didn't do as well as I hoped just because I couldn't hold on any more. By the time I got to do the high wall I was dead. I made it half way up, to the grey+black hold with the three knobs sticking out. I would like to try it again, but alas, no climbing partner to belay me, so I will work on the bouldering problems tomorrow.

I probably talked to you, or saw you there without even knowing it, I don't really look much like my pic anymore. I have chin length blonde hair now and glasses.
