Small Victories


Recent small victories of mine (to remind myself it’s a positive journey!)

  • I sent my bolted project. I bolted it last year and tried it only once, on a really bad day. It felt a lot easier this time, and I did it after a lead climbing rough patch. That felt really nice. 🙂
  • I have been sticking to a training schedule!
  • I see finger strength improvements with my training.
  • I feel confident on lead again 🙂
  • I’ve gotten back into running, after only biking after my sprained ankle last year.
  • I feel ready and excited for the competition season, and less nervous than I felt in previous years.

I encourage YOU to think about your recent successes. What have you accomplished in the last few months that have made you proud? Some of the items on my list came to me quite easy, while others were the result of some serious thinking. Try it out, and think hard! 🙂

Climb on xx

  1. Congratulations! There are some awesome achievements in that list.
    I’m really keen to hear about how you got into bolting. It seems like such an interesting process. It’s a skill I’d like to sneak on to the end of my bucket list.


    • Thank you! 🙂 We have a lot of up and coming crags around here and I belong to a small climbing club who runs their own non-for-profit gym. After a few years in the club and climbing outdoors, I got to know people who were interested in bolting and luckily, our gym has a drill we can borrow! I think you’ve inspired me to write a post about bolting, but if you’re interested in getting involved where you live ask around the climbing community or ask the people at your gym. Politics and ethics are the biggest issue with bolting, but if you get in touch with people in the climbing community, they can teach you what’s okay and not okay in your area. 🙂
