Spain adventures for @bymiskate and @catherinebrent didn't go according to plan... but these two troopers pulled through, had huge amounts of support from the community, and still managed to get on some rocks. Here's proof that our climbing community is supportive beyond measure and amazing beyond words. Way to keep your spirits high and keep trucking!
V5 Keynote Keel. I feel like I'm definitely upping my static game at this gym. For many attempts I tried to gaston dynamically from the middle block pinch to left and each time I hit the mat hard. In the end, not surprisingly, the key was to drop knee - even at the finish! Super set. This really helps to illustrate that brute power can only carry you so far in this sport 🧠 Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨
Today wrapped up our 3-part Alpenglow Collective Ambassador On-Boarding training. We are so excited to officially welcome our new cohort of ambassadors to the Alpenglow team and can’t wait to spread the stoke nationwide! Here’s Golden, CO ambassador @fueled_by_candy crushing it at Rifle.

Another great day at Kilnsey. Managed to climb The Bulge 8a and Comedy 7c. Nice to catch up with @bkelsey_climbing from Uni days. This is such a low stress/low cost holiday, recognising how much good climbing there is on our own island as long as youre willing to put in some hours of driving!
@itinerantclimber finished up this beautiful 3 pitch route while we were in Liming. He pulled off the crux pitch with an impressive lay back into a squeeze, and wanted to see if a couple of offwidth climbers would do it differently. I struggled my way up with knee locks into arm bars, got a gnarly gobi on my calf, and fell through the transition into the squeeze. I think that Ryder's beta is the easier, less painful, way, but the offwidth beta is more fun.
