About Me

My photo
My excessive energy, extreme narcissism, and intense love of neon-colored spandex is both managed and fueled by my addiction to fitness. I push myself to extremes and I push other people's buttons. Obviously I needed my own blog.

Brooklyn Boulders

I'm back in New York this week because I flew up for my friend Tai's wedding, which was beautiful. On Saturday, before the wedding, I went climbing at Brooklyn Boulders with Ryan and our friend Adam.

I've been climbing at The Cliffs and Island Rock, but never Brooklyn Boulders. I like The Cliffs better because it smells less like feet and lets in more natural light, but I don't have anything negative to say about Brooklyn Boulders.

Bouldering scares me because you're not hooked into anything. Going up isn't so bad but coming down makes me squeal in terror. I made it up to the top of the first V0 problem I tried but kept getting stuck on the second one. During my last attempt of the day, I finally made it up there as you can see in the photo collage above.

We went to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que for Shiner Bock and ribs afterwards, which is really the whole reason that I went to climb at all.

Thank you Adam and Ryan for including me in your Saturday ritual.
