Do you like reading blogs? Many climbers have them, often they do not update them for years and then start posting again. Here are some Canadian’s who have posted in the last month. Enjoy!

“Competition Mindset – Important competitions are always big experiences for me. I’m there to do my best with what I’ve got, and I become incredibly focused on doing that. The ‘stress’ metre is always pegged; sometimes that stress can be positive..”

“When you come up with a plan of action, whether in your head or maybe on paper, seeing it, reading it, thinking about it is one thing…but doing it…now there’s where the future of your actions are decided.”

” I am a beginner and I should learn on something that is not so scary, something where the consequences are not so severe.”

“Getting a Russian Visa isn’t the easiest thing to do. It’s a lot like applying for permanent residence to a new country.  The forms are pages long, with in depth questioning.”

“Exhausted and sun burnt, we turned around and retraced our now fading track. Oh well, it was great to gain some fitness, and enjoy a few lovely views in the process.”

” Every year before the comp I would try to figure out why I had done so badly the year before. Was it the routes? Was I not prepared? Did I just fail miserably? These were the thoughts going through my mind until this year.”

“So what’s it like to return to a place and a scenario that almost proved fatal in the not so distant past? Well, although the place was the same, the conditions were completely different. In fact, I have never seen it so calm at the launch. If ever there was a time to fly off Lady Mac, it was then. I quickly changed into some warm clothes, unpacked the wing and clipped in. The mental focus that goes in to launching a small paraglider or speed-wing from the side of a mountain is all consuming and I felt myself falling back in to a familiar, trance-like mode that I hadn’t experienced in some time. It felt really good.”

“After around 3 weeks of climbing in Rodellar, Spain I was finally started to feel it. As long as I could pinch a tufa between my knees, scum a shoulder or hip check something, I had a fighting chance of weaseling my way up some climbs.”
