Not exactly how I wanted to start the World Cup season here in Villars…tough climbing conditions 🌧 and had a unfortunate foot slip on one of my quali routes. On the bright side of things, I am really pleased with my current fitness and climbed with confidence I never had last season. Going to re-focus for my next chance in just a few days time. 🌟 In other news @lucasuchida had a super impressive second climb which was really awesome to see, hopefully there are some more great climbs from all of us in Chamonix on Thursday. 🇫🇷 📸 @sheila_mcc . . . @piseworld @rockymountainsoapco @lasportivana @flashedclimbing @pauwfoundation @movementfactoryholds #climbing #leadclimbing #speedclimbing #teamcanada #ifscwc2018 #focus #poweredbypise
Rest day here in Villars. Went for a bit of a hike and a gondola ride, and met a nice cat on the way back to the apartment. Always nice to take some time to enjoy the places we visit between competitions. @mec @lasportivana @petzlofficial @boulderzclimbingcentre @boulderz_jt @tokyopowder #mecambassador #mecnation #skyambissionsteam #lasportiva #tokyopowderindustries #hiking #runningdownhill #landscape #restdays
