First blog of the year, it’s going to be a bit of a wrap up of 2017 and some thoughts looking towards 2018. I’ll try and keep it brief but there’s a lot I did during 2017!
I have broken my Climbing NZ Paraclimbing Competition weekend into a series of blogs. This is Part I: Getting to Auckland.
This was my Second Qualification round at the Climbing NZ Lead Climbing Championships. This is the qualifier I fell off. From watching this I think I rushed slightly, didn’t double check my foot placement and when I went to load up my left leg my foot rolled off the hold.
Please bare with me, I didn’t get the rest and recovery I expected to after the competition, so I will be posting pics and my thoughts over the next few days!
Wow what a weekend!
On the 19th and 20th of August the Climbing NZ National Lead Championships was held at Extreme Edge, Glen Eden. This year was the first time that Para/Adaptive climbers participated in an offical Climbing NZ event.
Yep, as usual I’m busy!
On Saturday I spent the day raising money for Assistance Dogs New Zealand Trust outside Pak ‘N’ Save, Palmerston North. I had a great but tiring day talking to people about the role ADNZ Ben plays in my life and how some of the other amazing dogs are changing lives for New Zealand families. Once again I am humbled by the generosity of Palmy Nth.
