As I write this, the hours before the competition keep ticking by. It turns out, I needed much more help than I thought when wrote Horseshoe Hell Help. For starters, my partner and I bought the guidebook for Horseshoe Canyon Ranch (HCR); my good friends in theDIHEDRAL community kept me on a brutal but necessary training routine; we scoured the internet for advice to add to the awesome advice from our friends who have competed previously. I still can’t believe this is something I get to be a part of, and I hope I don’t miss a second.
The plan right now is as follows:
1.) climb at least 115 routes each
2.) I win the women’s footrace
3.) we eat so much food and absorb the chaotic energy
4.) keep safe habits no matter what
5.) enjoy the party
Of course, we have a more detailed plan…you will have to watch the stories we add to @thedihedral on Instagram to get all of the details. We’ll see how my experience compares with my predictions from High-Clip Goes to Horseshoe Hell, Part 1.
It’s game time. Stay updated through our Instagram, and I’ll see you guys in Hell.
