Boulder Open #51 at Karbin

_MAL4749, originally uploaded by Michael A. Lowry.

Tonight I went to Karbin for some bouldering. It was the fifty-first boulder open competition they've put on. It was my best boulder open to date, and I placed fourteenth. This time, I managed to complete 26 out of 40, including several really tricky black-rated ones. I was close to doing two more as well, nos. 3 and 8. My previous best had been 22 of 40 problems.

Here, Jenny tackles a fun problem of red-colored grips. I took lots more photos, so take a look.

With Hung's expert advice, I conquered this fun bouldering problem at Klättercentret. I did it once last Thursday, and three times last night. The lovely and talented Paula took some photos of me doing the problem. Check out the photos from last night.

Saturday @ KC

Yesterday I spent a few hours at Klättercentret bouldering. I met some nice folks there including this girl, Isa. It was her first time climbing. She did really well! Go, Isa!

On the walk back from KC to the train station, I took a few photos of a fox trotting in the newfallen snow. Take a look at Saturday's photos for more from yesterday.

Karbin on Saturday

Lisa and Matt & I went to Karbin on Saturday. I had been there before for several Boulder Open competitions, but I had never climbed the tall roped routes. It was fun and the routes have a different character than the ones at Klättercentret.

I posted 95 photos form Saturday.

First climb of 2007

Last night, Lisa and I went to Klättercentret for the first climb of the year. I was still feeling a bit slow after a very festive New Year's Eve, so I had to take it a bit easy. Interestingly this made some problems easier to solve because I had to use my brain a bit more and take things more slowly and carefully.
