This is one of my favorite pictures (cropped for IG) from last weekend climbing at the #MadRiverGorge in #Ohio. One of the lovely ladies in my group spotted this potential route and without any hesitation, our group chalked it up and cleaned it out. We used bolts from a nearby route to climb it. Shout out to the @ohioclimberscoalition for their constant work of this area and shout out to @climbstuffdotcom for donating 5% of your every order to the Access group you choose! Thanks for the shot, @purdueryan05! #browngirlsclimb #rockclimbingwomen #womenwhoclimb #womenwhorockclimb #tattooedpeopledoitbetter #colorthecrag #girlswhoclimb #girlswhoclimbrocks #slaydies #sladies

Best part of climbing on competition problems? They are set for people my body size, aka children 😹 #indyclimbs #hoosierclimber #slabisrad #browngirlsclimb #climbingincolor #colorthecrag #tattooedpeopledoitbetter #womenwhoclimb #girlswhoclimb #rockclimbingwomen

I visited a local rock gym an hour away from my house today to test my theory that slab could be my thing. After sending this sweet V5, I realized it might be. I was only a few moves away from sending a sweet V7, too, but didn't have enough gas in the tank. #slabisrad #indoorbouldering #womenwhorockclimb #womenwhoclimb #girlswhoclimb #girlswhoclimbofficial #browngirlsclimb #girlsboulder #girlswhoboulder

Second time I ever tried #cratestacking and I matched my first attempt of 14. I had to climb down at one point, though, because I was given a crate that didn't fit nor did another crate fit on top of it. :/ taking two off and then putting two more on to replace them definitely zapped my energy. Oh well; it went better than a control fall I took where my foot kicked a hand hold and flipped me upside down, throwing my left hip directly into the wall :/ #womenwhorockclimb #girlswhoclimbofficial #girlswhoclimb #girlswhoclimbrocks #rockclimbingwomen #tattooedpeopledoitbetter #suicidegirls #sg

One of the best rests on any vertical route for me is the birdcrotch, as coined by @fanatic_havic and her dad. Once I finished resting up, I pushed through the crux only to have my left hand pull out of the crimp and jab myself in the side with my elbow. At least I was rested enough to recover and get the #Redpoint last weekend on Scrappy (10d). #outdoorclimbing #madrivergorge #sportclimbing #browngirlsclimb #melaninbasecamp #takeholdlv #colorthecrag #rockclimbingwomen

The beta for normal sized people was to catch a toe around the arete as you lean into the jug, but if you're 5'1 with a -3 ape index, you dyno. I have learned from this route that slab might be my calling. If only my gym had more than two slab routes to prove my theory 🙀 #browngirlsclimb #colorthecrag #colorthegym #diversifyoutdoors #diversifyclimbing #girlswhoclimbrocks #climblikeagirl #rockclimbingwoman #rockclimbingwomen #womenwhoclimb #suicidegirls #girlswithtattoos #ladycrushers #takeholdlv #melaninbasecamp

Thank you, so much, @sterlingrope for the amazing #Sterling25 swag! Being a New Englander means supporting other New England based companies. Sterling ropes are phenomenal and I am lucky enough to have a new tarp and rope bag to match as well as an amazing tank to wear while I crush. Thank you, again, @sterlingrope! #boulderingisdumb

At the end of my climbing last night, I went up to the weight area to see where I was at with pullups. Late April was the first time in my life that I could do even one but then getting tendonitis in my wrist meant I stopped targeting them. My wrist feels strong enough to start up again, but that begins with some strengthening exercises for my left shoulder. As a kid, it always used to pop out and as a climber, the only thing I've done to strengthen it was fully engage my back while working my hanging exercises. As you can see in the video, even trying to stay super focused and even, my shoulders active at different times and my right shoulder overcompensates during every pull-up. Luckily I was able to chat with a rehab specialist to get some safe exercises to start using. #progresshereIcome #pullups #climberproblems #climbertraining #climberlife

I went #sportclimbing in the #rrg #RedRiverGorge this weekend for the first time since my wrist tendonitis. I took it easy, mainly going for milage, flashed a few 10s in the process, not getting on anything much harder in order to avoid hurting my wrist. Miller Fork has a new crag as of a month ago called Camelot. My group definitely broke off at least 15 different foot and/or hand holds during our day there, but the walk out was worth it.

I haven't been able to climb outside in a few weeks because each weekend the weather decides to force me to train indoors. I am planning on doing a day trip this weekend somewhere to boulder and develop the area. Getting FAs are cool, but the real win is having others climb in areas I clean up, and rate my problems on @themountainproject 😹 #girlswhoclimbrocks #redrivergorge #rrg #climbingincolor #browngirlsclimb #girlswithtattoos

I won the @sgblackheartburlesque #blackheartburlesque dance competition last night in #Indianapolis 😻😻😻 Amazing show, as usual, with amazing babes! I really want to get the #suicidegirls presence up in this city.

Thank you, @rockclimbingwomen, for my sticker to add to my water bottle! As a queer woman of color, I don't feel like there are many spaces meant for me. I stand so strongly behind their amazing message, bad-ass women doing bad-ass adventure shit. Give these incredible women a follow. #rockclimbing #girlswhoclimbrocks #rockclimbingwomen

I had a pretty rough night at the rock gym tonight, so here is a shot from about 1 month ago in the Red. #RedRiverGorge #girlswhoclimbrocks #sportclimbing #suicidegirls
