why can’t fall not mean “bolderin’ time”

15 09 2008

so much training happened in my garage this summer.  4×4’s, 65 move 3 rest ‘routes’, and enough running to make up for the 1.3 million cigarettes i’ve smoked in the last decade.  all of this ‘work’ – keep in mind – was meant to get ready for fall so i could be fit enough to tick off 13a (both enduro style and power style).  goals, goals, goals.  yet here we are – right on the cusp of fall – and all i can think about is gettin’ my bolderin’ on.  i have a few theories as to why this happens EVERY YEAR.

1) i have like 1 friend stoked on sport climbing.

2) the person i climb with the most doesn’t know how to belay.

3) bouldering doesn’t require a belayer.

4) i don’t have to stop and clip on boulder problems.

5) i still don’t have great endurance.

6) bolderin’ is totally awesome.

7) horsepens isn’t a sport crag.

despite coming off a full weekend of hangover-producing graduate school shenanigans, it has been brought to my attention (by nature no less) that fall is coming.  and with fall?:  


in fact, i’m heading to military in 15 minutes.  gonna get my ’12 wall’ trifecta on.

booyah.  (it’s how the kids say “see, i am doing this”)
