    Last year while climbing at the Satellite Boulders in the Fatirons of Boulder, Colorado I noticed a right exit to the classic "Face Full of Brian" V8; this problem climbed through the crux of "Face Full of Brian" but instead of finishing on the jugs up and slightly left, after the crux of "Face Full" you surfed out right to a very obvious sloping rail...although this line was very obvious there was also an obvious reason it hadn't been climbed...the landing, there was even a really old super rusted and bent to shit bolt just to the right of the sloping rail (so obviously somebody had atleast tried the problem in the way past with a rope). After finding all the holds and getting some chalk on my hands and the rock, I decided to do my best at padding the landing and giving it some goes...I was pretty scared at first due to the very big and commiting last move over the seemily heinous landing but after taking a few falls on that move I realized that the death fall was an illusion of the mind and the reality of it was that you kind of just fall straight down onto this taller rock and not down into the hole of death. It was all just some mental tricky so I cleared my mind sent it from the stand start "Orion's Belt" and then gave it some burns from the low start "O'brian's Belt" and to my suprise I made very quick work of the boulder and sent it in only a few go's and I never had a bad fall!! Yesterday, April 20, 2015 I went back to repeat and film the boulder, this send footage is of the repeat. I dubbed the stand start "Orion's Belt" V7 because there are three holds on the obvious sloping rail and they mimic the image of "Orion's Belt" in the sky, plus it's at the Satellite Boulders so something space related seemed fitting; the sit start "O'brian's Belt" V9/10 starts on "Face Full of Brian" and climbs into "Orion's Belt". "The Tale of Scroatie McBoogerballs" V7 is directly behind you if your facing "Balance in Nature" it starts left hand in a 2/3 finger pocket undercling, and right hand on a small crimper just up and right around the arete. Do one very powerful move to a left hand sloper jug at the lip into a campus match then pull onto the face...fun movement!

It features Michelle Watson getting the first ascent of "Momma Bear" V3 (her first first ascent) and climbing the classic V0 highball "Don't Mess With Texas; Courtney Sanders gets the second ascent of "Pepe Le Pew" V8 and takes down the first boulder I established at the Secret Spot "FogHorn LegHorn" V7 and last but not least Victoria Gezel at only 9 years old gets the third ascent and first female ascent of "Vulcan Crimp" V8, incredibly inspiring to see such a young woman climbing so strong!!!! www.asanaclimbing.com www.indoboard.com www.olmecapparel.com

                  The Yank-n-Yard returns for the 17th year, hosted at Stone Age Climbing Gym's brand new 23,000 square foot facility in Albuquerque, NM. This community driven climbing competition continues to bring together the climbers of the southwest as well as providing a proving ground for climbing's elite athletes. The evolution of the Yank-n-Yard has brought many changes over it's nearly two decades of history and this year was no different. Putting our own twist on tradition, the event was themed after the Mexican holiday of Dia De Los Muertos. Painted faces filled the gym as 200+ competitors each achieved personal victories and met challenges during the youth and citizen's portion of the event. After Friday's qualifying round, the top six men and women competed for a share of the $5,000 cash purse in the finals round of the open category on Saturday. Local stars went head to head with some of the nation's strongest climbers in front of a crowd that packed the house. Needless to say, the crowd wasn't disappointed and witnessed some of the most impressive on-sights Stone Age has ever seen. The men's category was dominated by Carlo Traversi who was pursued closely by Matty Hong and Austin Geiman. The young and talented Ben Hanna, Aidan Mike and Gareth Bonn filled out the men's category. In the women's category new comers to the Yank-n-Yard Juliana Price and Emily Cole followed Abby Czajkowski who was defending her 3rd place title from 2012. Alex Johnson was able to snag several zone holds overthrowing Abby and moving into 3rd place. The real rivalry however was between Alex Puccio and Megan Mascarenas who tied in the final round. In a bold and noble gesture, Alex challenged Megan to a super final to decide a victor instead of relying on a count back to the qualifying round which would have granted her the podium. Megan capitalized on her opportunity and took 1st place, beating Alex on the super final problem. We invite you to share in the excitement of the Yank-n-Yard through this film highlighting the competition's best moments and keep an eye out for another spectacular event in 2015.
