Here’s a little weekend video inspiration from Barbara Zangerl to send you out to crush your projects over the weekend. Back in 2012, Barbara ambitiously tackled leading a nine-pitch crack line of 8a difficulty in Tecino, Switzerland. In doing so, the 25-year old Austrian reminds us what climbing is all about: the adventure, pushing your limit, and putting in the work to do what inspires you. Channel her spirit this weekend! If you need a little more inspiration, Isabelle Faus just recently sent Clear Blue Skies, (V11) in Mt. Evans, Aleksandra Taistra sent A media esta, (8b/5.13d) in Rodellar, and down south in Brazil, Bianca Castro sent Filezão, (8a/5.13b) in Barinnha. Strong sends ladies!
As for our weekend plans? Crux Crush will be helping out the Western Mass Climbers’ Association and the Access Fund with some trail restoration at Farley, MA. Next weekend we’re hitting up Rumney to do some trail improvement with the Rumney Climbers Association. If you’re in the New England area and have benefitted from the stellar climbing at these two areas, stop by and lend a hand. Happy crux-crushing – climb on! ~Cate
