I should post on here more often.. To bad I have a shit phone and only space for 4 apps that were not already on my phone… lame but its only temporary.

I climbed something out of my comfort zone a few weekends ago. Kind of tall, don’t let this photo fool you, and kind of a fucked up landing. Took some working up to do this move. It’s been a while since I’ve done anything tall… slowly working on my headspace.
Thank you @blackdiamond for making the biggest and best crash pad. Love our mondo.

I definitely will! I'd also love to go to Oregon. And many many MANY other states. We went near Mt Rainier which is pretty cool. I love the hikes! It's impossible to do something like that in this country. Keep making those pretty pictures, can't wait to see more :)

Ha, will do!  I used to work in Ashford, WA near the entrance of Rainier National Park in the summers during college for Rainier Mountaineering Inc (RMI).  Some of the best summers of my life spent climbing Mt Rainier and exploring the park. Oregon is absolutely stunning - I am lucky to live in the American west with such incredible access to public federal land.  It is amazing to be able to hike and camp in so many beautiful places. Thanks again for the message and kind words.  Cheers!

Happy Tuesday! And thank you :D 

I am definitely proud of my placement in Munich, it was a great competition.

I don’t have any outdoor climbing plans…but I know I will be hitting some different areas around the state to get on some good boulders :)

Unfortunately outdoor trips tend to beat up the skin :( Some people swear by balm…but I like to use lanolin if my skin ever feels like it’s too raw!

Hey :) Thanks a lot for your interest. Unfortunately, we do not know who is in charge of this. Best thing is to ask the luxemburgish climbing federation FLERA, they should know ;) … www.flera.lu or the GAL http://groupealpin.tumblr.com … Have fun climbing !

Hi

Hey there! I wish I could help more, but I have had an IUD for the past 6 years… Unfortunately I don’t have much advice to give in the way of periods. I know that Climbing Magazine is coming out with an article related to training and menstruation, I will link to it when it comes out!

Being motivated and dedicated is the key to reaching any goal. This year-long program, geared toward intermediate and advanced climbers, will show you how to get stronger and more powerful, but you have to work for it. “Trying hard” is V15-climber Ian Dory crawling across the bouldering pads to get to his next problem, being determined to succeed and refusing to stop or give up.

Throwback Thursday

This week’s feature problem at Black Rock :) I’m glad I sent this problem after falling approximately 1,000x on it

The Boys of BKBeastmode[Photo by Joseph Lee Photography]

We saw grit. We saw gumption. And we even saw a broken nose. But all this aside, it became evident the BKB community has grown to standards and expectations that shouldn’t, and can’t, be capped.

After twelve highly physical and mentally exhausting events, BKB Somerville-based team Max Jackson and Andrew Hewitt were crowned the best team from all over the country in Somerville, MA on Friday, July 14, 2017.

With Beast Index* scores of 153.34 and 142.34 for Andrew and Max, respectively, it’s no question these dudes were fit and ready to dominate from the start. But the real feats of fitness were showcased when a come-from-behind victory secured the win. The bonus round married the beauty and grace of bouldering, with the sinewy muscles and brute physicality that only climbers seem to possess, and I was lucky enough to be able to pull Max and Andrew aside from their $2500 big-ass check to ask them a few questions.

Brooklyn Boulders (BKB): First off, congratulations! How does it feel to win BKBeastmode?
Andrew (A): So great! It’s awesome!

BKB: What got you interested in Brooklyn Boulders’ BeastMode competition in the first place?
A: This is my first year competing, and I was introduced to the BeastMode comp through BKB Somerville personal trainer, Alex Wisch. I started training with Alex a few months ago and he told me about the competition. He suggested I train for it, but I didn’t have a partner, so he introduced me to Max three weeks ago. He’s a cool dude and we hit it off pretty well!

BKB: Holy smokes! You guys only met three weeks ago?? It looked like you both have been training partners for years by how well you worked together. Clearly, judging by the last bonus round event you both have been climbing for longer than a few weeks. Is that pretty accurate?
A: Ha yea! I’ve been climbing for about five and a half years. I started in Peru and traveled all over the world climbing.
Max (M): I started climbing at 12 years old in Zion, and had this awesome experience where I “lived off the land.” It was incredible, to say the least. And then I found Brooklyn Boulders a couple years ago and work/ climb here.

BKB: Alright, Max, I gotta ask. Talk around the facility, today, is you were hit by a car. Tell me about that and how that changed your game coming into BKBeastmode?
M: Yea, Boston is pretty notorious for bike riders and questionable drivers. I was on my way into BKB to work my shift. As I was riding my bike a car swerved right in front of me, without any warning, and hit me. I literally hit the windshield with my face. So yea, I come in to BKB to work then start BKBeastmode with a broken nose. I should probably get this checked out.

–nervous but awe-inspired laughter bellows from me, at this point. Dude, literally, got hit by a car and then wins BKBeastmode!–

BKB: Last question before I let you guys continue celebrating. How’d you like the events? And what was going through your mind when we announced the bonus round?
A: I loved the quality of the unknown with the events. I really underestimated the pain of the second round–that weight pull was the hardest event, by far, and the water tank was a great mental test. Max and I were bummed when we were told we didn’t win the competition, but then once the bonus round was announced, we both looked at each other and said, “We got this.”

BKB: I love it. You guys took that last event and ran with it, for sure. Congrats again on winning BKBeastmode and enjoy your cash money as well as that sweet trip to Hueco Tanks!
A: Thanks!
M: Thanks a lot!
