Teva games was sweet. I got to see the world championships for bouldering and compete in the Youth competition. I was a retard and focused too much on one route at a time rather than backing my points up with high-low routes(haha that makes sense). I took 4th place. A week later I went to divisionals. I qualified for the second day in my opinion barely by taking 7th place (10 went to the second day), On the second day I made it to 5th place which in turn qualifies me for nationals. Two days after that(today) I went outside bouldering. I sent Snytonga and Shyza-Shyza V9 and V7 respectively.

The Cody comp. was fun i took first in my division second overall. A few weeks later I went to regionals for SCS and received 4th place. I was amazed. I was disqualified towards the end of the first route for putting my foot on a wrong hold then I ran out of time on the second route. So sometime in June I'm going to divisionals but right now I'm more worried about Teva Games which is gonna be killer. Can't wait.

It turns out the majority of the team didn't go, three of us went, haha. It was our first time in a roped competition this year. We weren't ready for it, I placed somewhere around 8th with three routes completed. Our next competition is in our teams' hometown, Cody, Wyoming. The weather has been better though and I've been climbing outside. I lead my first 5.11, Seam Dream, then another 5.11, Black Hole. I went bouldering a few days later and sent one of Cody's famous boulder problems Ripper Point (V5). The most kinesthetic boulder problem I've climbed yet.

Lately the weathers been crappy so I haven't been getting outside, but last time I did get outside I sent Fingerpaint my first V7 outside. Our climbing team has a newfound inspiration, we don't know what the inspiration is though, but everyones been coming to practice. We have a new training plan that has like 3 or 4 phases which get more intense with each phase. Right now I'm pumping out with phase 2 so I'm expecting major benefits. On Saturday we went to a comp in Billings. Our team had 3 first places. I got first overall just barely. This upcoming Saturday the majority of our team is going to Bozeman to compete.
