The kitchen had been my area of focus for the last 3 or 4 years, but I knew that I could no longer juggle my passion for cooking with my passion for climbing. All of my eggs needed to be in one basket.
So I put down the chef's knife, in a sense. It was more like I put down the pounds and pounds of shrimp I had to peel and devein everyday... and I started working at the Denver Bouldering Club.
It all started with wanting to improve my climbing and spend more time around people who shared the same passion for climbing as I did. That is where I still am today. Sure climbing can be seen as a job, or as an occupation, or as a means of making money.. I see it as a lifestyle.
I had a great time setting for and attending the first ABS comp of the season at City Rock in Colorado Springs over the weekend.
