Weekend Warrior Wednesday – October 16th

weekend warrior badge Warriors, unite! The weather is starting to cool down, paving the way for what I hear is going to be a truly wicked winter. But before that happens, we have plenty of Autumn to enjoy!

And what better way to do that than by getting out to the gym, the trail, the boulder, the peak, or the summit and flexing those Weekend Warrior muscles?

Take a look at the pics and blogs below to get psyched for your own adventures this coming weekend!

WW-10.16-Emily

Emily took a recent trip to China with her buddy Matt, who was writing an article about Chinese limestone formations for National Geographic. And you better believe they got to check out the subject matter for themselves! Here’s Emily, showing off her incredible Warrior skills at Red Dragon at Moon Hill. Check out her blog for more unbelievably awesome pics! / Emily Harrington

WW-10.16-Bumbly

The Bumbly took a recent trip to the Grand Canyon in celebration of that most beautiful and colorful and mild of seasons: Autumn! (You better knock on wood and spit through your fingers if you’re a climber and you just said Fall…) Here she is at Montagne D’Argent, just swimming in that gorgeous golden sunlight. / Rock Bumbly

WW-10.16-CanadianKate

Real Warriors know that half the hard work, half the sweat, half the victories (and half the defeats) aren’t realized or felt in nature—they come in the gym, where Warriors must train (and train HARD) to maintain their stamina, strength, and agility. Here’s Canadian Kate, taking a breather after 1.5 straight climbing hours, and rooting on Diane as she gets on top of a red problem. For a full rundown of a Real Warrior’s workout program, hit the jump to read her blog! / Canadian Kate

WW-10.16-FinalPunt

Alex, Jordan, and some other climbing nuts took on Derbyshire, England’s Peak District this past week. This is the moment Alex topped out on Crescent Arete, Stanage Plantation. A beautiful day and a beautiful little climb. Go, Warrior Alex! / The Final Punt

WW-10.16-DownOut

Tyrolean Traverses are sometimes unavoidable. They can be a pain in the backside, especially when its Boulder Creek in mid-autumn, and far too dangerous to cross on foot. So what do you do? If you’re Traci and Deb, you turn it into a fun adventure using the permanent line. Deb’s just about across in this pic here. Just a couple more pulls! / DOWN and OUT
