If you happen to be walking around your local Whole Foods, make sure to grab a copy of Origin Magazine and peep the Adidas Outdoor athletes it’s featuring! I wrote a little blurb about how I focus during climbing and how I build my confidence.
Check out the figure-four move in this raw footage of me on Eckstein (V10) in Hueco, TX! It makes up for the drop-off finish at the end, due to not being able to squeeze through the crack. I did, however, return to Eckstein and squeeze through on my last day of the trip. Got stuck but managed to wriggle through!
Working Power of Silence (V10) in Hueco Tanks, TX. Hopefully snag the send next season!

Hey! Hey guess what!! I SENT THIS TODAY!! Along with Chblanke, an 11 that I consider my hardest send to date. This Hueco trip has been amazing and I’ve felt really strong almost every day I’ve gone out. I wasn’t expecting to do either Power of Silence or Chblanke; they both seemed more abstract than realistic. But thanks to some beta from Melissa Strong on Chblanke and some teeth-gritting commitment on Power of Silence they both came through!! So psyched right now!!
