Had an awesome time at Rock the Blocs Boulderfest in Kelowna on Saturday, and even managed to snag the female trophy for 2017. Such a great vibe, good people, and fun, quality boulders. Thanks to Okanagan Bouldering Society for organizing, @gneiss_climbing and @climbonsquamish for the cool prizes, and @id_climb_that for the 📷. @pinnaclesports #bouldering #climbpinnaclesports #pinnacleathlete #climboutdoors #funinyellowpants #lotsofpads #firefly
Well that was a great day. Thanks to the whole Rock the Blocs crew for hosting such a great event. I'm pretty psyched to take home the win from today's comp with sends of Nerf Roof V12, flash of Driven V11, flash of Detour V10 and a second go send of Chaos Amidst Serenity V10. @bolderclimbing @outdoorresearch @scarpana @petzl_official @frictionlabs @elevatemefoods
Damn, that was a weekend to remember. First time in the boulder fields, and managed to flash a couple classics like Driven Stand (V9 and my hardest flash?!) and Empire Strikes Back (V8). Went on to tick Apocrita (V9), Serenity Amidst Chaos (V9), The Guardian (V8), and so many other amazing boulders!! . 📸: Jay showing the crew how it's done on Baby Cthulhu, arguably one of the coolest boulders in the fields, if not anywhere. . So grateful to everyone who's put time into this area and made this event happen, and as well to everyone who came out and threw down this weekend. This community is amazing 🔝💯🙏🏻 . @flashedclimbing @hiveclimbing @hivenorthshore @evolvcanada @evolvusa #climbingrevolution #sorryforthespray 😬
