Jimmy and I celebrated our five year anniversary on May 1st. I have had an amazing time with him and I can't wait for our ten year anniversary! I feel that we compliment each other well and have taught each other many important things!
In may I drove out to Richmond, va to help set and forerun for dominion river rocks. It was one of the best competition experiences that I have had in a long time. I was able to hang out with all my friends but also climb all the boulders without the stress. Don't get me wrong there was still some stress because we had to make sure everything was going to work out as planned and with the rain interfering with the event a little we almost were not able to show case all the boulders but luckily there was a break in the weather and all the competitors were able to experience all the rounds and boulders we had set up for them.
Following this event I drove to Fayetteville, NC to participate in a route setting clinic. This was for the level 1 certification and I was really happy to complete it. The best part was that I had to set some routes which I had never set before. It was a great experience and I can't wait to do the level 2 clinic.
I came back home for a short while because I had plans to take the climbing team to the Red mid June. I was really excited about this trip because the team hasn't gone in two years and we had a couple new members. Overall it was a great trip and all the team members we able to accomplish amazing things. I'm proud to have coached these kids.
When we got back from the red it was time to get ready to fly out to South Africa and go climbing in the Rocklands! But before we left, we decided to reset the whole gym and have a summer competition! It was awesome with a great turn out!
Here's a link to my post on the five ten website about the trip to the Rocklands!
All in all it was amazing and I can't wait to get back!!
When we got back from South Africa jimmy flew to salt lake for the trade show where he did amazing at the deep water soloing competition. I stayed home and took care of some minor things because jimmy and I decided to move to Boulder, CO. I had a lock in for the climbing team to wish them farewell but not to worry I will be seeing them in Hueco this winter!! Everything happened so fast and before I knew it we are at a going away party hosted by the climbing gym. Thanks to everyone that was there, it meant a lot to me!
And here we are now driving out to Colorado in a Penske truck. It all feels so surreal!! Can't believe it's actually happening. These past two weeks went by so fast that I'm still catching up.
