Tour de Bloc 13 is finally starting!!!  And in case you weren’t excited enough, AU has been teasing/torturing us with hints of something big happening…the IFSC WC wall is being used for finals…where will they set it up?

Well, there are a lot of fun choices this weekend.  I always love competing at Petra Cliffs and eating my way through Burlington, VT.  Blackout Boulder Brawl does give me to opportunity to wear even more fluorescent clothes than usual.  It would be my first time competing at the original BKB and that would be cool.  But Allez Up, with their flashy promos and tantalizing hints, finally won my vote.  And the setting was killer at their TdB last year.  I haven’t competed much and have been focusing on climb/life balance this fall, so we’ll see how this goes…
