Canadian Amanda Berezowski Sends 5.14c at Horne

Amanda Berezowski has ticked A Stressful Day at the Office (ASDATO) 5.14c at Horne Lake in B.C.

Berezowski’s first 5.14 was in 2016 with Dinosaur Highway 5.14a, followed by Northern Man 5.14a in 2016.

After Dinosaur Highway, Berezowski wrote of Sendage.com, “My first 5.14! Pretty psyched as I just barely squeezed it in before it’s wet for a few months. This route had a lot of different movement packed into it. Two months ago a lot of it felt dynamic, but by the send almost none of it. I really like that the other 13’s at Horne really prepare you for it and then it’s just a little step up.”

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose~ Getting as close as I could to this feeling of being FREE mentally is EXACTLY what I had to do in order to finish this route. Trying something that I view currently as being at my limit has been extremely demanding both physically & mentally. Which in turn has taken me on a wild journey & made me face so much within myself. This is a bigger achievement in my perspective than a grade. A muertes! 😈πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ‘‘ β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Thank-you to all of you for putting up with my pre-send burn, increasingly getting worse, OCD πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ _____________________________ ASDATO (A Stressful Day At The Office), 14c βœ”οΈ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ πŸ“Έ @wessidegreentree #liveyourdreams #believe #freeyourmindandclimb #climbyourimpossible

Based on the West Coast, Berezowski started climbing in Calgary on the junior team with coach Knut Rokne.

Earlier this year, she sent her first V11 with a top of Beefy Gecko in the Sad Boulders of Bishop. Berezowksi has climbed a number of V10s, including The Seam, Sharma’s Link, Slow Dance, Water Hazard and Beef Cake.

Elan Jonas McRae made the first ascent of ASDATO as a variation to A Day at the Office 5.14b and it was repeated by Dan Beland and Marcel Arden.

Sometimes you just need to LET GO, repetitively, to find your flow πŸ¦‹ β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” I really appreciate everyone who shared their experience & knowledge in response to my last post regarding β€œsend burn anxiety” πŸ™πŸΌ… I took some of what everyone said & it’s literally put me back in a positive direction, allowing huge noticeable improvements this week. Even though my post was focused on what can be a stressful or negative feeling… I DO TRULY LOVE what I’m doing. I like facing things I struggle with & view it as a opportunity to become the best climber & human I can be. πŸ™‚πŸ’• I am FAR from perfect. Something important I have learned over time is ~the only thing we have control of is the way we respond to every experience, everything else is out of our control… EVEN rock climbs. _________________________________________________ πŸ“Έ @vanislebouldering #freeyourmindandclimb #climbyourimpossible #neverstopexploring #believe #liveyourdreams
