Found this small bouldering gym in the middle of Tokyo. It’s a mess compared to my gym in Stockholm but it’s always fun to climb! landscape views on top of table rock mountain nc

I’ve received a couple messages in the past couple months asking me when I was going to start climbing again, or how I felt about the fact that I wasn’t climbing anymore, and I realized that the last time I posted, it was the beginning of the summer and I was working in East Hampton. After that, I returned to Maine and moved to Bangor, going to the University of Maine, and never posted any sort of update. Heres the thing, I’ve been climbing so much that I haven’t had time to even think about posting. 

Like, for real, I’ve been climbing more in the past three months than I ever have in my entire life. 

I’m now living in the area that I’ve been traveling to to climb. It’s my first year a UMaine, and I’m living off campus, so it was slow going at first, but I’ve met some absolutely incredible climbers. These guys crush. And I’ve had the gear and the experience that they lack. So every weekend has been one mini adventure after another. We’ve been projecting 5.12s, and dabbling in multi-pitch and trad. I haven’t taken any pictures, or recorded anything, because I suck. But I’m going to try and change that in the spring, but for now I’m back in the gym (and I haven’t climbed in a gym in going on 4 years).

So, current status, and goals: Working solidly on V5 if its slabby bouldering, overhang (i.e. my fucking kryptonite) is more like V3 but will mess around up to like V6 (though I can’t make much progress). Entirely gym, boulder-centric climbing, which is exactly not my style, so this winter is all about focusing on my weaknesses, which is both infuriating and exciting. The goal for this spring (as set by me and a partner), start sending 5.12 outside. Personal goal: get comfy leading 5.11, and also get confident falling. And trad. Trad is a new beast for all of us, so I don’t have a definitive goal there, just, try not to kill ourselves I guess. 

Sorry for neglecting my blog. I think I want to try and transition over to posting more (or mostly) original content though, so my posts may be more sparse, but I have so much more to talk about than ever now, so, hopefully they will be quality.

INTEGRATED STRENGTH: Combining Hangboard and Weight Training for Maximum Climbing Strength Everything about training for climbing is complicated. It is an exercise in compromise - focus on power and you lose endurance, too much time getting your fingers strong, and your redpoint grade drops. Over the years, there have been many creative solutions proposed to solve this problem. Many programs are more or less stolen from training plans for other sports, which presents a whole host of issues.

Before trying out the Trailside Kitchen, I’d never attempted any sort of sustained dietary modification. Most of my meal planning revolves around trying to balance medical school and climbing on a budget. My favorite crag snack is Goldfish, and, more often than I’d like to admit, my pre-climbing breakfast is cannoli from the Italian bakery […]

I guess we did take pictures a whole one trip this year. Warming up at Otter Cliffs in Acadia before I did my first ever trad climbing on South Bubble.
