2012

Comps:

Montana Bouldering Championships – Steepworld, Billings, MT – February 4th (x) – 2nd place after double overtime finals ending in a failed pull up contest, most fun I’ve had at a comp in a long time!

Wild Walls’ Climb Like a Psycho – Spokane, WA – February 18th (x) – 3rd place behind two Seattle young guns, Alex and Sam are wicked strong! Got to visit some great people and experience some great setting. Plus Evan and I got a tour of local bouldering area Tum Tum! See you guys in April.

ABS Open Nationals – Colorado Springs, CO – February 24 & 25th (x) finished 41st out of 61 competitors, not super happy with my climbing but happy with how I went about it, finally figuring out how to do an onsight bouldering comp…. and lots of ideas for setting 🙂

SCS Open Nationals – April 6-8th (x) 21st out of 38, i climbed really well but it wasn’t reflected in my placement cause everyone else climbed better than me. oh well, it happens, that’s the crazy thing about comps that people don’t like.

Spire Spring Fling – Spire Climbing Center, Bozeman, MT – April 13th (x) 4th year in a row Men’s Open Champion, this year had some of the best routes yet!

Freestone Climbing Center’s 1st Competition – April 28th (x) I beat Charlie, Kerrek, and Dominick at bouldering for a change… I can’t let them live this down, it probably won’t happen again!

Butte Bouldering Bash – Butte, MT – October 13th Link – placed 2nd to Dominick by one flash. I need to spend more time out in the Batholith this winter!

UBC Pro Tour Seatle – September 21st – finger injury in the month prior…

Lost Horse Bouldering Festival – Hamilton, MT – September – No event this year sadly

Pocatello Pump – Pocatello, ID – September 14th and 15th

IFSC World Cup – Stone Summit, Atlanta, GA – September 29 & 30th – I didn’t qualify this year, and I’m not disappointed at all, freedom!

Freestone Comp – Missoula, Mt – October 27th (x) 1st place after epic finals showdown with Charlie

Full Gravity Day 12 – Spire Climbing Center, Bozeman, MT – November 10th (x) 3rd place, made my goal of making it back into finals!

Steep World Comp – Billings MT – November 17th (x) – finished 1st, must’ve been having a great day… the fact that charlie and dom went bouldering before the comp may have been a contributing factor.

Big Sky Region Finals – Spire Climbing Center Bozeman, MT – December 8th

Setting

Prince and Princess of Plastic – Montana State University, Bozeman, MT January 28th and 29th (x) – our best year yet… how to improve for next year?

The Rocky Comp – Spokane, WA – November 10th, hoping to pull out a miracle here! (x) wish I could’ve stayed but I’m pretty sure I made the best of what I was given
