Been Chill'n

Lack of updates recently..  i know.

kasia sent her camera back to Nikon to get fixed and cleaned.. we sold our video camera this week too on Ebay...  Which is straight cause we bought another one!! and its HD!!!!! UHHH!!

But yea, other then that.  been sport climbing. only sport climbing! 
Endurance is in effect, and im finally feeling in stride!!
As sport climbing goes we've been making alot of trips up to Ga.  Climbing on some immaculate stone, and enjoying the warmer weather.
Thinking of making a trip down to Alabama to try SoCo soon! Power endurance to the MAX!
Also heading to fosters this weekend to get on some uber classics and go swimming.

Hope to have something more entertaining up here soon enough.

Deadpointmagazine video

So recently, filmaker Spencer Victory has been making trips down to chatty to film me on certain classic boulder problems of the Southeast.  The reasoning behind this video was to basically showcase some cool blocs, and to possibly give me a bit of recocgnition around the climbing community.  Though all of this filming was hard fucking work, there was a nice positive outcome on the whole situation!
This video is definitely up to par!  and props to Spencer on the edit/filming. 
Good stuff man!
Hope everyone enjoys it. 

More from spencer:

Oh, and also i have a certificate for a free pair of Evolve climbing or approach shoes! 
Ha, and since im poor.. im planning on selling this certificate for 50 bucks... so if your syked and in need of some new kicks, just holla.

Cumberland Video

So here's a clip i threw together of some of the climbing out on tha cumberland.
The vids alright minus the midsection being cut out of Salo's roof.  SHIT!
While i was uploading it onto my computer for some reason the camera wigged and i lost most of the climb. So i cut it in the middle and started it up at the end... missing 7-8 nice moves out the horizontal bloc...
Other than that the vid includes:

Tommy on a warm up, v2
Jon Gass sending Riverfront v5
Tommy on Salo's Roof, v10
Me sending the supposed project.  now dubbed Seven Eleven, v11

Im really syked on this area... though its limited to only a handful of boulders.. there are still some sick projects on the horizon!  And you best believe i'll be back!!!

So this past couple weeks have been sick.  Been doing alot of training at our local TBA climbing gym, kinda been working on my endurance, and power.  Feeling stronger then ever!! Unfortunately all the intense training brings along achy joints, and sore tendons..  but recently i have (for the first time) been trying to actually eat right, and lay of the coca-cola!
My inspiration comes from the dream of climbing hard!!! I've always been infatuated with the idea of making the impossible somewhat effortless.. i've been feeling strong recently, and know i can be stronger.

Time to get down to brass tacks..

On another note..  i've been climbing at this nice area that we call Cumberland.
Its got nice roofs, sick projects and classic warmups/moderates.
We went out again today with friends Janitor Rankins, Tmoney, Ian, and Tomas.
Main goals were to get on Salo's Roof 7c+, and another hard problem called Gross's Roof, 8a 

Peeps were amped today!!
First try on Salo's roof i made it past the last crux (basically finished) to the jug rest. Pulled right hand to this large shelf that ended up ripping off and hitting me in the chest.
From there i had 10ft flail to the ground landing on my back.
Luckily enough the shelf landed next to me on the ground, and not on my head.
Afterwards Ronnie fired the rig. I sent right after, and Tmoney came through in the end to finish off the 3 way!

After that we headed off to try Gross's Roof.
This climb is just about as close as the south will get to  "El Teco" the classic 8a in the Tanks.

From the start this climb felt impossible. but after trying multiple beta's I was able to solve the bloc for the 2nd ascent. This one i thought was quite difficult for me.. but im multiple days on, and feeling super sore from yesterdays training.

Tired yet syked!!

Sorry no photos or vids from today.
Been more focused on the climbing experience rather then sitting behind the camera at every possible second.

Get out and enjoi it!!
