I would add every climber should try competition at least once, even if it's a local at a gym. Having to compartmentalize the nerves, the time, the frustration, and the crowd creates a unique patina to the climbing experience. Not everyone's cup of tea, but worth everyone trying.

This past weekend's World Cup event in Munich had a bit of everything: The thrill of Janja Garnbret's victory, the agony of Adam Ondra's defeat, and Mia Krampl reminding all of us that human spirit and tenacity transcends sports. Recap link is below.

Incredible grit and perseverance from her, as she's obviously in a lot of pain with her knee.

This crowd is incredible! The reception for Aleksey coming out first was amazing...rightly treating him like a superstar.

I would love to have another day from back then--the usual, just filled with writing and reading and the city backdrop, concluding with all of us toasting at the bar until the early hours of the morning. A magical social time.

Continued dominance by one of the all-time greats, a new world record, some solid routesetting, and some nice depth shown by the national team...there was a lot to love about this past weekend's World Cup event in Chongqing, China.
