Music to my Ears

Last night I spent some time at Willow River State Park, doing something that I don’t do that often, climbing with a rope.

I spent my time there working on the route “Water Music” a short(still long for me) 5.12a route, with some cool moves over a roof. With a few tries and much Beta from Zach B. I nearly got the send. Unfortunately my bouldering ways have not granted me the necessary endurance and during my send go, I found myself feeling pumped before the harder moves over the roof. I’ll definitely have to get back to Willow again soon to tackle this route.

VE Mountain Goats crush as SCS Divisional

Congrats to all the climbers that competed at last weekends SCS 2013 Divisionals at Hoosier Heights in Indianapolis, IN.  The Twin Cities VE Mountain Goats had a number of climbers qualify for the National competition, as well as first place finishes by Kyle Struthers in Male Youth-B, Kyra Condie in Female Youth-A, and Noah Ridge in Male Juniors.  Way to represent!
