I need to go camping

I picked up some Miuras today, decided to break them in by climbing the side of my friend’s building.


New Friends, Road, & Adventures
San Jacinto State Park Wilderness (Palm Springs, CA)
April 14, 2013

This weekend was spectacular. Last weekend I met a guy from my university and a current student at the indoor gym. They are well-seasoned climbers. It was refreshing to meet people who valued the refuge nature provides when living in the urban jungle of Los Angeles. So, I was thrilled when they invited me to come along and meet their friends in Tram and climb. Their friends were so welcoming and inspired me to climb harder. They derived so much joy from the simple pleasure of climbing and it was wonderful just to get to know them, climb, and talk. You know, when I’m most stressed, worn down, and tired, it’s a solace to know that their are amazing people I have yet to meet, roads to travel, adventures to be had, and of course… rocks to climb.

(I’m going back in 2 weeks!)


A sample from my training with Kris today! Seen here are long-reaches, bumps with pull-ups, and ladders on the small rungs. We also did pull-throughs on the board, light weights in the weight room, along with TRX and box-jumping. Fun fun fun :)

This is how I actually look when trying to poo. So happy to have a little off-white/light-tan box to do my business in.

How climbing feels to me sometimes as described by raccoons.
