  •   xchrissimmonsx @casedia96 it's the same shape, they just used new materials and it's not as bulky, just breaking them in around the house they are snug but a really good fit I think 1d
  •   xchrissimmonsx @ethan_climbingv8 these look 10X better than the old guys for sure, the last ones were bulky, these are not 1d
  •   bananajuicebox I wear an 11 in Nexxo, previous Shaman and Luchador, so I ordered an 11. If they're too big I'll send em' back and size down a half size. (Crosses fingers*) @xchrissimmonsx 1d
  •   xchrissimmonsx @bananajuicebox I wear a 10 in nexxos and dropped per @alexjohnson89 advice, they are a perfect fit 1d
  •   ethan_climbingv8 Yeah they were. They're my easy sport climbing shoes now. Wore them in horseshoe hell 1d
  •   bananajuicebox Bummer, sounds like sizing down a half will be necessary now. Ah well, once I get them we'll see what happens and all good things come to those who wait @xchrissimmonsx You ought to see the Nexxo's I'm still wearing though, it's hilarious. Holes in the toes and such, not to mention they smell like the Great Depression. Whacka whacka! 1d
  •   casedia96 I just feel a model with a midsole and a model without a midsole are a pretty big difference in a shoe. I've also never really worn them so I can't say much 🙃 1d

xchrissimmonsx It's not always about crushing hard climbs and sending the gnar, but this trip was for @alexjohnson89
After sussing some critical beta, she basically flashed a Moe' Valley classic, Dead Rabbit V10
#moesvalley #bouldering I want to go climbing outside again... Real bad ☹️

xchrissimmonsx I've been working on pure crimping routes to help build that finger strength, I think a reset is calling in the near future.
Who wants to come set some routes?

xchrissimmonsx Watching all the Nationals stream got me all hyped to train, so I had a solo sesh on the woody and finshed with some hangboarding, got to work on those weaknesses!

xchrissimmonsx I've never really worked on weighted hangs, but with all the info I've been reading lately, apparently it's one of the best ways to see proficient growth in finger strength.
They suggested max hanging for 8-10secs with long breaks in between sets. This is no where near my max but me just playing with weight on a larger rung to find a good base/starting point.
What are you doing with dead hang? Added weight? Body weight? Repeaters? What up?

xchrissimmonsx I always thought top out boulders were kind of a novelty thing, until I try harder ones and I realize it's because I can't do them well
Hit up @senderone on the way back to AZ for a quick session, good times!

  •   xchrissimmonsx @nubtron that sounds like a good idea to train for hard top outs! Do it man! The time is now! 4w
  •   nubtron I'm for sure watching flight costs on Kayak! @xchrissimmonsx 4w
  •   fuckryancramer That's a fun one. Did you give that orange one below you a go? The top out on that is pretty tough 3w
  •   xchrissimmonsx @fuckryancramer no I didn't, I got this one on the second go as I slipped a foot and impaled myself in the stomach with the corner of the boulder, haha. I was pretty spend by the time I hit the top out boulder. Climbed a 7, like 2 6s and handfuls of 5s and 4s. It's a super nice gym but almost overly commercial for my liking. I almost watched some girl die because her belayer wasn't pulling slack on the rope..... It was nuts 3w
  •   fuckryancramer Next time you better call me! I'm down to go anywhere and climb indoors. Let's go to Joshua tree or bishop soon. Serious! 3w
  •   xchrissimmonsx @fuckryancramer game for bishop or red rocks! 3w
  •   fuckryancramer Actually I think red rocks in Feb! I'll keep ya posted 3w
