❤ It looks like climbers want to spend Valentine’s Day on the wall. There are so many comps to pick from this weekend! The collegiate season is really picking up here in America with 2 events last weekend and another 2 this weekend. And we are starting the transition between bouldering and roped seasons both in America and Canada.

After much thought (and changing my mind several times), I decided that I will be going to Top Out or Tap Out on Saturday. I’m super psyched to attend this comp and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun, but at the same time I’m pretty disappointed to be missing the Heart Burn. I love the Burn Series, I rarely pass up the chance to go to a Burn and I have been dying to see the new East Falls facility. Good luck to everyone at every comp this weekend, especially all my friends at Heart Burn. Crush it!
