Whiskey Wednesday: Climbing Champs?

If you don’t live under a rock then you probably know that the U.S. Bouldering Championships were this past weekend at the Spot gym in Boulder. If you paid any attention at all you know Daniel Woods and Alex Johnson crushed hard enough to clench the titles. Their accomplishments are worthy enough to drink to tonight  except for the fact that neither one of them are old enough to buy their own alcohol. I thought maybe some older people needed some glasses raised in their name tonight, but I wanted to keep it in the same climbing vein. In order to maintain this notion of comp loyalty I’m bestowing this weeks honors on Matt Segal and Emily Harrington. From what I can tell these two are not normally boulderers. I mean Segal might have been a helluva boulderer  in his loud-mouthed punk-ass youth days but he seems to be on a chiller, single pitch trad kick currently. Emily I think just sport climbs. And when she sport climbs she sends really really hard shit!

That’s not the point though. The point is, these two persevered and made it to finals even though a bunch of young, butt-scratching, cave man-grunting, V-Dub plastic humpers were out for blood.

So pour one out for these homies tonight. These two are as hood as it gets.
