|Washout Boulders, Leavenworth WA|
The weekend began with a long drive through traffic down to Portland to stay with Lisa for the Portland Boulder Rally comp. The comp went alright. I managed a good flash of one of the top ten problems and then it went downhill from there. I began bouncing all over the points spectrum falling on the last moves. Lisa did well but was one away send away from finals. Results can be found here RESULTS After the comp a bunch of us decided to play pool and kick it till 2:30. Afterwards, because three of the climbers had plane flights at 6:00, we stayed up till 5:00 AM and dropped them off at the airport.

Sunday morning after getting a few hours of sleep Lisa had to do the PCI clinic so I kicked it at the SW Circuit for a couple hours and then decided to go to Carver, the local bouldering area. The temps were great and I managed a two sends and got close on Angry Squirrels, a v9 traverse and got to the crux of the Cedar Project, v10. After returning back to Portland it was a very long drive back up to Seattle to get some sleep before heading out to Leavenworth. I was already feeling sore by this point but decided to push hard anyways and get in some more climbing.
