Here are two videos, I have made over the past couple of days. The first is of Matt free soloing the local gym. The second is me climbing at Three Sisters.

The past couple weeks I have been laying low and taking it as easy as possible. During the Bouldering Series comp on the 8th, I took a bad fall. I was dynoning for the top of the wall, I missed and landed on the edge of the pad with my left ankle. I was able to finish the comp but afterwards, walking was quite difficult. I went to the doctor and nothing is broken, just a bad sprain. I will probably need some physical therapy to prevent future problems in my ankle. I am still able to climb which is amazing. If I had to take another month off of climbing, I may have gone insane. So I have been setting and climbing in the gym mostly the past couple of weeks. Today I went outside for the first time in a while and headed up to Three Sisters with my girlfriend. I wanted to check out the Subterranean Wall. I managed to climb a few of the classics on the wall. I also put what I believe is an FA. It starts on Spotless and traverses right on crimps into the corner of Stupefied. From here you make a big move out to the finish of Scoundrel. It probably checks in around V6/7. I am proposing the name Double Dragon for this climb. I got some video of this climb, and will have it posted it shortly.

Short little video I threw together from tonights comp. The new camera is working out great, still working out some of the kinks though. I am excited to get a lot of footage this fall and make some great new videos.

Finally I am starting to feel strong once again. For the first time in a few months, I feel almost back to where I was before the injury. Last Thursday was the first of two Donkey Kong Comps at Rock'n and Jam'n 2. I was able to send 23 out of 35 problems. This coming Thursday is the second comp at the North Rock'n and Jam'n. Doing 23 problems last Thursday has put me in a good spot to hopefully finish in first for both comps.
Before the Gun Show at The Spot I purchased the new Nikon D3100. The main reason behind this purchase was to be able to get higher quality climbing footage from all of my adventures. I was able to test it outside last Sunday and start to put it through its paces. I am very excited to what this camera can do. Look for some great new videos in the coming weeks.
