Last Friday, the Psicobloc competition took place in Park City, Utah. The weather initially was beautiful, but then the rain set in. These amazing athletes continued to compete until lightning made it unsafe to go on.
Last weekend during the Red Rock Rendezvous I had the pleasure of taking a photo clinic with John Evans and Chuck Odette from Petzl. It was inspiring to learn from John and Chuck and to see Heather Weidner and Olivia Hsu climb. I am excited to continue to work on my ascending technique and shoot more climbers!

The finals of the Cliff Bar Psicobloc Masters Series in Park City at the Utah Olympic Park were fast and exciting. For the women, Clair Buhrfeind pulled off some impressive climbs to win. During the third round for the men, Sean McColl executed a dynamic, footless cross reach to edge out Chris Sharma, and in the finals, McColl beat Daniel Woods to win. I cannot wait for next year!
Thursday night we attended the Psicobloc seeding rounds in Park CIty. The climbing was amazing, especially from the young competitors, and the falls were epic. It is hard to imagine how scary it would be to take the plunge from 50 feet! The finals on Friday were even more amazing. I will be posting some pictures from the finals soon!
