Ok well its been a year since ive done this kinda crazy to think about all the stuff thats happened since. and to think about what was happening then. I think this blogging thing is kinda silly not gonna lie. i mean who looks at this me? well yah. anyone else? umm doubt it. Im cool with it coach mulkey says its good for everything sponsorship wise. I sent in a resume to Sportiva. i didnt even get a reply kinda disappointing. i dont know what to do about that. i mean rejection ok i can live with that. but i need the tools to find acception. So it would have been nice to have heard what i need to do to make myself look more attractive on paper. People keep telling me go for some lower shoe company. i just want to be like why? i dont like the other shoes company's shoes so thats like being a liar and telling them i love their shoes and want a sponsorship from them. So that leaves me in a predicament a kid with a very limited amount of money trying to buy top of the line shoes. the other company i really want a sponsorship with is prAna. Havent tried but they are amazing. hopefully ill give it a go before summers end. Lately ive been climbing pretty amazing stuff I still cant find anything of which i can get an FA on everything is just right outside my limit. so hopefully ill be there soon though. Today I worked on this bomber Route. amazing. its this route called Tribal Vibrations. Whats really cool about it is the way its set up. the boulder its on is this Volcom stone shape a little more tilted than 70 degrees. The first move is relatively easy the second one is too but then you make an awkward move out to a not very positive pocket. from there you grab this sidepull right below the pocket and throw for this half pad three finger crimp you throw up your right foot and rock out with your right handto this terrible hold. Mike Snyder who wrote the guidebook said it was the smallest hold on the mountain of any established route. from there you slot your hand into a crack thats one of the better holds but still slopey. haha from there i have yet to find out. but im psyched cause the route is amazing. Besides that ive beeen climbing pretty hard I have a V11 and then three V10's and 5 V9's i think. the majority of those done within the last couple months. if you read this. cool. you deserve a doughnut. or something you would appreciate.
