Chillin in the Appalachians
Me and the rest of the Chatt Nasty Climbing Team competed at the second comp in the CCS (colligiate climbing series) for 2010 over the weekend, held at Appalachian State University. Packing for the trip, it was almost painful to leave out the ski gear but the purpose of this trip was to dominate in climbing, not on the slopes. The drive up was interesting to say the least and the folks who let us crash at their places were awesome. Starting early Saturday morning, the comp was divided into three different time slots: 9-12, 12-3, and 3-6. We had climbers in all time slots so the whole crew spent the day at the gym. Those of us who weren't climbing walked the streets of Boone in search of cheap food. ASU set problems to suit a diversity of different climbing styles and all of them were sick! In the end Matt took 2nd in men's for the CCS, Rachel took first in womens', Brea took 2nd(?), and I took first in men's intermediate for the individual comp. We all had a great time chillin with good people in an awesome town and I can't wait to do it again.
