My therapist, who is probably in her late 40′s, told me she never pursued more artistic opportunities in her younger years because one teacher told her she wasn’t a “good artist”. Now after taking art lessons the past few years she is pursuing an art therapy license.

I sit here and sing along to my iTunes remembering how I was punished as a child in elementary choir class which made me avoid choir like the plague as I grew older. I took band classes instead, which I stunk at, making me feel like I would always be a failure musically. Today, I can for the most part carry a tune and even harmonize, and can make up songs pretty quickly.

We need to remember that the arts are meant to be FUN, subjective, and a form of self expression instead of telling kids they are “good” or “bad”, “talented” and “not talented”. The arts are not meant to be graded.

Sorry for lack of posts we seem to be Shadow banned and have no idea why.

Training is a lot quieter these days which is the way it goes but we’re still getting out on the rock consistently. Not so much going forward now with the weather taking a turn but we’ll get out when we can.

Personally I’m psyched to train like a mad man through the rain and probably winter, I’ve got a goal in mind and it’s time to push my limits to get where I need to be 💪

Nice chill night out of some highballing and soloing the other week, we tried catching the better conditions while the sun was down but the midges were out in full force.

In other news the training is now in full swing, the goals have been set and the psych is high! 💪

Nice but hot week away in the peaks. Some really good night sessions to get the projects done, sadly for me I didn’t get much harder than a V7, not the V9/10s I was looking at but there’s no way I was pushing grades in those condies.

James smashed it this trip, coming away with ticking his long term project and V6 classic Green Traverse. After a constant battle with the sweaty conditions he got it on our last day out there(last day best day)

My brother was making some great progress after not climbing for years, it always astonishes me how he can come back after so long and still crush it on the rock. Always lots to learn from the people you surround yourself with!

Finally now we’re back home it’s time to train again, starting Monday we’re going to be in full swing of surpassing limits and trying our hardest.. let’s see where it takes us 💪

We’ve been having a good mix of outdoor/indoor recently, some still training for big projects in the future while others testing to see where they’re at after a long winter of hard work… First pic is of Martin on three pocket slab, a classic at the roaches. He’s made huge progress the last few months after coming back from font and I’m super psyched to see him get the send soon! 😁

For me, I’m battling about 1000 niggling injuries that have completely gone to my head, very hard to maintain psych for trying hard when your body is in full rejection but thats just the way it is.. hoping to get some good sends in the coming weeks and fix the damaged goods I’ve been carrying 💪
