Jon Cardwell reports on Instagram that he did Papichulo 9a+ in Oliana on his last day before returning back home. The American has spent two months in Sapin including actually extending his trip waiting for his project to dry up. (c) Javi Pec Last year Jon did his first 9a+, Biographie and explained to 8a how he had become a better climber. "I think in the last year, I really improved as a climber. Mostly in my ability to climb with less hesitation - in the last year I really focused more on onsight and flash and I think these forms of climbing really help that, more than physical challenges they are almost the best training for one's climbing mind! You must make important decisions quickly, without self-doubt, and when you make a mistake you're often finished. This really helps your mind act without emotion - which often gets in the way of hard redpoints - "is this the try?" "Are conditions perfect" etc....once I realized thoughts like that didn't help, I moved with more confidence and was able to perform to the best of my ability (still far from the super stars we see today) but definitely at a higher level than last year."

Jonathan Siegrist reports on Instagram that he has done Pachamama 9a+ in Oliana, which was put up by Chris Sharma in 2011. The American has previously done 18 9a's and four 9a+'. "I'll be unpacking the lessons learned from this process for a long time. Truly, it feels like a chapter in my life ended when I clipped the chains last night. A new level for my climbing and an experience I will never forget. Flooded with gratitude, 'Pachamama'... Onward." (c) Matty Hong

Dear Brooklyn Boulders Community,

Diversity and inclusion has been core to the mission of BKB since the day we first opened our doors back on September 9, 2009. On that day, we set out to create a place for climbers when there weren’t many options in New York, and from there was organically born a passionate and diverse community of people from all walks of life. Much has changed since then, but we keep Brooklyn in our name everywhere we go because Brooklyn means people – it means diversity, it means celebrating cultures from all around the world and a place where people can be free to express themselves.

Recently, one of our members wrote to us about experiencing disrespectful behavior towards them – a rarity in our overwhelmingly inclusive and welcome community. We want to take the time to remind our community not to lose sight of one of our core values. Everyone is welcome to get weird and be themselves at Brooklyn Boulders. Any exclusionary, hateful or divisive behavior is not welcome in our community.

We have always encouraged our members to propose ideas of how we can make our community, and — by small incremental changes — the world, a better place. Please check out our upcoming Punch It Out series at BKB Somerville, where trainer Piseth is leading classes for those who may feel powerless to feel empowered through strong physical movement. Or join one of our upcoming Brothers of Climbing meet-ups at our Brooklyn location, which is a group on a mission to make climbing more inclusive and diverse. Volunteer with our Adaptive Climbing Group in New York, Boston and Chicago. Crush with other ladies at our Climb Like a Girl workshops. Climb with the LGBTQ community at our Out to Climb Nights with local groups like CRUX in New York or Quick in Somerville. Connect with other entrepreneurs, network and attend panels with Startup Climbing.

 

Our walls have always been built to bring people together. This has been the intent for nearly eight years and counting. Our members, every one of you, make up our community and we are all the ones in power to evoke change. The next time you’re at BKB and about to hop on a climb, introduce yourself to someone new, or ask if they’d like some beta. Be conscious of others around you and remind yourself of how powerful human connection can be. You never know what you may learn from someone else, on and off the wall. Remember to be present with other people. You may find inspiration when you least expect it, and you may even inspire others around you.

 

As our community continues to grow and expand, we all must keep the Brooklyn spirit and welcome everyone to freely express themselves. As always, please reach out to us with any ideas on how we can improve, and for how you think we could make our BKB community even stronger, together.

With #bkblove,


The Brooklyn Boulders Team

The athletes' commission, including 13 athletes, have written an open letter to create awareness and explain their stance. Jorg Verhoeven has in the forum said he can answer any questions in regards the AC's stand. "The last few days have been dramatic - never before has the climbing community been so vocal and united in opposition to a decision involving our sport. The IFSC rightly states that it values good governance and transparency, and that its athletes are included in decision making processes at all levels. However we would not be where we are today if this were completely true: - rule changes have been introduced with little communication or debate, and in our view without proper consideration of the consequences; - the media rights for our sport have apparently been sold with no consultation, and with no apparent consideration for the effects on athletes, sponsors, organisers or the community that ultimately makes climbing the sport we love. We are saddened that the IFSC has chosen not to be open, not just with us but with the climbing community at large. To us, this is opposite to the spirit that defines our sport. We are speaking up now because we are disappointed and frustrated; we feel that we have reached a dead end in trying to influence the IFSC quietly from the inside. If we believed that it was too late for the IFSC to act in accordance with its stated values we would not be writing this, but we have to call for a change in behaviour. We are concerned that the IFSC will try to manage its way past this crisis and then go back to business as usual. This is not a course of action that we can agree with. To make our voices heard, starting at the Meiringen World Cup, we have asked the athletes to withdraw cooperation with the livestream media until changes are made. Our aims are to have: - effective consultation on (rule) changes that affect the athletes; - a free livestream on an IFSC platform indefinitely. We are speaking out publicly because we believe that the IFSC and its board members will rightly be judged by their action or inaction. We hope our actions will help the IFSC hold itself accountable, not to us, but to the climbing community at large. As athletes, we want to see our sport grow and prosper, but success must be measured in more than financial return."

In the run-up to The Worlds Games 2017, the International World Games Association has updated its website.

The new website is specifically planned to serve before and during The World Games as a user-friendly place to find all necessary information for the athletes, officials, federations, spectators and media. While The World Games are on, it will be easy to follow the results, photos and videos via one webpage.

Check out the new page here!

Shauna Coxsey, who won the Boulder WC last year, did all four boulders in a superior way. Besides that, we only saw nine successful attempts and contrary to the qualification and semi, the route setters miscalculated the difficulty. In fact, male winner Kokoro Fujii did just one boulder. The commentators mentioned that probably high temperatures in the arena created bad conditions for the athletes. The new max 4 min rule could also possibly explain the few tops. Overall, it also had a negative impact when it comes to excitement. It was great free live-streaming besides the fact that the commentators several times could not analyze the running results and sometimes they even miss-lead the viewers. (c) Eddie Fowke - The Circuit Climbing who has a gallery well worth checking out. 1. Shauna Coxsey 4t10 4b8 - Kokoro Fujii 1T1 3b6 2. Katharina Saurwein 2T6 3b13 - Alexey Rubtsov 1T2 2b8 3.

salewa-firetail-3

A big problem I have with many approach shoes is their lack of versatility. Sure, the majority are great for scrambling through rocky terrain, and some can climb reasonably well, but the simple fact remains that most approach shoes are being used mostly for, well, the approach! If that happens to include muddy or snowy trails, traction tends to go right out the window, as most tread patterns that are good for climbing aren’t good for less-than-ideal trail conditions. Thankfully this isn’t the case with Salewa Firetail 3, which I’ve been using through the fall and winter. Even in sloppy mud or snowy conditions, they held good traction where many of their kindred would have been slip-sliding all over the place.

Like all Salewa shoes I’ve tried, they’re comfortable right out of the box. The fit on this model feels geared toward wider feet than the Wildfire Pro (one of the best approach shoes I’ve ever worn, BTW). Those with narrower feet can dial in the fit with the laces which extend well into the front of the shoe, allowing for a precise fit. The Vibram Megagrip sole is plenty sticky when scrambling up steep slabs, and edges well too, (I’m generally not a fan of climbing in approach shoes, that’s what they make rock shoes for, but I suppose you could do that as well if you were so inclined).

At 390 grams (13.7 oz) their not super light but not overly beefy. For those who live in wetter climates, there’s also a Gore Tex version. If you need an approach shoe that offers year-round versatility, the Firetail 3 should be at the top of your list

Retail: $138.95
Weight: 390 g / 13.7 oz
Ideal Uses: Hiking, scrambling & other approaching-related activities

More info and tech specs can be found on the Salewa website.

Two weeks before RUFA, I felt great – I ran back-to-back 20+ milers at a good pace, I had energy during the day, I felt strong. I overlooked the length of time I slept that weekend, and how tired I was at 9pm. What mattered was that I could run, was running, and was running well.
Maybe I could beat my record at RUFA. Doing well at RUFA would confirm my decision to go Barkley, it was my health benchmark. If I could run decently for 24 hours, I could continue to try to train (healthwise) for a 60hr event.
There was so much hope for that day. I’ve tried to remain optimistic – being sick for 7 months tore apart friendships, hurt my fitness, made me long for the mountains. But I could be positive, I’d tell myself. I could hope to overcome.
Funny thing, I can’t “hope” and “positive think” myself out of a long-term illness.
The week of RUFA, I was a little more fatigued than I had been, but I just assumed it was giving me deeper sleep. I rested, I didn’t run. Each night prior I made sure I got at least 8.5 hours of sleep. (Unlike last year, in full health, when I slept 5.5 hours each night the week before…)
I was tired the morning of, but hey, who isn’t tired at 5am? I was worried that my 9 hours weren’t enough, but thought maybe my body was just letting me know it wasn’t used to being up that early.
The effort on the first lap was more than it should’ve been for the pace. I couldn’t manage my heart rate. This has been an issue the last 6 months or so, and I focused on trying to relax, avoid stress, and calm myself. It took a half hour longer than my first lap last year. I tried not to think of it. I was outside, I was running. Having the time and energy to do either of these things (and at the same time!) was such a rare occurrence, and I was so grateful to just be there.
On the summit of lap 2, I convinced myself not to sleep in the tent. “You don’t need a nap,” I reminded myself, “Barkley relies on this. You’re awake. You’re awake….” I fought the discouragement that pairs so well when my sleepiness kicks in.
img_7283 “LOOK AT YOU!” shouted Brian Tolbert. I smiled, happy to see him. 
“I’m slow this year…” I smiled.
“You’ve come so far since last fall! Look at you! Oh, I’m so happy to see you out here…”
I smiled, remembering how there were days in the fall last year I couldn’t keep my head off the table at work. Remembering sleeping through my kids going to school. Sleeping through my alarms. Barely making it to work at 10am. Oh, I was grateful to be running a second lap at 9am. Grateful, and uneasy. I wanted a nap.
Lap 3 I had lovely company, and conversation kept me from laying in all the spots I couldn’t help noticing would be prime locations for a nap.
On the summit of lap 4, after I had stopped myself several times from actually sleeping after I had pulled off the trail, I knew it was over. I could take pain killers for that all too familiar “drowsy headache” I get most days, I could down caffeine, but that wasn’t the point – the point was to test my sleepiness, not make myself worse.
A few new friends stopped me on the way down, wanting to say hi, cheer, take photos. “Good luck at Barkley!” was the sweet comment. I would hold back tears. I want to go to Barkley more than any other running venture. They are family, they are my people. I fit in there, I belong there, I thrive in the challenge. I’m not the kind of person that gives up, I didn’t want to give up, I wanted to go…want to go.
But if 8 hours of running made me stumble home and take a nap, and then sleep 11 more hours, it wasn’t looking promising that I could run 60 hours.
RUFA was a day trapped between devastation and joy – I was so happy to be outside. The mountain community in the Wasatch is unlike any place I’ve visited. So many people, all with good intents on supporting a local fundraiser, friends, training, each other. They inspire me… but I was physically unable to use their inspiration as fuel. For that, I was devastated, to give up my “big dream” of 2017.
Perhaps the untold pain of RUFA wasn’t the day, or the drama of sleeping half of my “24 hour” timed race. It was the following two weeks of dead energy, struggling to be awake enough to do dishes, feed my kids, cope with daily life. I was assured that this was “normal” for trying to do RUFA on a ‘fatigue day’ by my doctor. I was so frustrated. RUFA wasn’t worth the pain it caused, I’d scream inwardly. I wished I could take it back. How dare I dream, hope?
img957449 5 of the last 6 days I’ve had energy for daily life. Oh, how wonderful that is. RUFA was a slap in the face, but sometimes we need the hardest hits as a real-life wake-up call. I need to not focus on Barkley, on long training hours, until I physically can handle it. It’ll be a few months.
Jared Campbell put on a great event – full of some of the kindest hearts and fastest legs I know. I’m grateful I felt good enough to do what I did, and in the sad way, I’m glad I know my health limitations, so I can train and plan accordingly. 
Last year dealing with frustrations at Barkley (navigation, pace) I’d remind myself “there is nothing to do but carry on.” How I carry on is my choice. And so, I carry on.  Onward, to the next thing.
Thank you to La Sportiva for their support, Gnarly Nutrition for the TLC texts and products, and White Pine Athletics for personally coming out to RUFA to show support to their clients and community.
