Amazing finger crack on the tower, followed by two chimney pitches of epic bird shit and loose rocks… not stoked to top out again anytime soon. Thanks to @kelvin_artdoors for making this trip possible, rad place with a rad partner. #climblife (at Devils Tower, Wyoming)

It’s ok to have a plan B. Just make sure plan B is - screw your excuses, take your ass back to plan A, work flipping harder and finish the job.

It’s the dreaded Monday, which mean work week in the house!
Here at Tick That Pitch we’re planning on slaying our keyboards in the name of progress. I want my keyboard to say “dammmmmmn son!” at the end of the week. I’m loaded & stocked up on Hotpockets and diet cola (because I like to keep it healthy you know…).

Make sure you guys check back this week, we are going to share another screen shot of our app!

Life can sometimes be so fickle. One second everything is perfect and the very next second it can all change. As a matter of fact this happens to everyone at one point or another in their life. It’s called hardship and it’s a part of life. 
This is also so relevant in our climbing world. Sometimes we have slumps in how hard we climb and sometimes we have slumps in our motivation to climb. This is also part of the cycle.

In life and in climbing hardships are immanent. They cannot be circumnavigated or ignored. You will have to hit it head on, so brace yourself. There are two sure fire ways to overcome these hardships. Will power & family. 
Surround yourself with people you love and expose your hardship to its mortal enemy…will power.

Question & Answer:

Tick That Pitch user question: “How did Tick That Pitch start?”
A long story, made slightly less long goes like….
Not only am I an avid climber, but I love hiking. So a couple years back (early 2013 ish) my friends and I had an idea to start this hiking website and app. I was so sure It was going to be the most epic and amazing thing ever any human has seen, I was damn sure of it. I told my friends and family that I’m a genius and I stared waving at them from the road to success. Short story short, is was an absolute and complete epic fail of massive proportions. We didn’t even get to launch it because we made it with the wrong framework and a ton of other moronic mistakes which is a list that’s a mile long. The program we made was cutting edge, amazing and innovative, but just didn’t work for the application of hiking data….(hint: remember this)
There were no words to describe the overwhelming sense of failure I had at that time, but simultaneously and strangely there was even more indescribable sense of the knowledge and insight I gained not only about myself, but about starting a fledgling company. What seemed like one of my most epic life failures then, ended up being my most prized and valuable life lessons that would be the nucleus of how I operated in the future. 
To me this situation was life testing the motto my father instilled in me which is “It’s ok to have a plan B. Just make sure plan B is - screw your excuses, take your ass back to plan A and working flipping harder.”

With that motto in mind I opened the hiking program we built and just stared at it. I sat there days clicking around, looking at this amazing program we built that just sucked for hiking data. The statistic frame work, algorithms, and analytic power of the program was jaw droppingly cool, but it just sucked for hiking data. 

After days of sitting there, I decide it was time for a shower. As I was showering and the hiking program faded into the back of my thoughts and I began to think about the upcoming epic climbing weekend I had planed. My buddy and I were planning on our biggest climbing weekend yet and wanted to knock out 5 of the biggest multi-pitch routes in our local area in two days. I was think to myself “holy shit, this is going to be one awesome weekend, I wonder how many feet I’m going to climb?…”

Then it fucking hit me like freight train. Excuse my language, but there is no other way to describe it. My body literally jolted in the shower when the idea slammed into my head. The program we made sucked for hiking data, but we unknowingly and almost by accident made the absolutely perfect frame work for an extremely advance climbing performance program.  

One of the Tick That Pitch partners is my roommate and I literally busted out of the shower and came running down the hallway yelling to tell him. I sat him down and started rambling off this idea of a climbing program with our old program. I probably sounded like “well we can do this and and and we can do that and and and.” He just let me ramble for a good 30 min before saying “this is a weird conversation to be having with you while in a towel dude….”

Tick That Pitch was born from that moment.
