Learning and Adjusting - Priest Draw Day 8

I started this blog for one main reason: to post videos. I decided to start making climbing videos to get people psyched. To keep motivation up when stuck in an office forty hours a week. I have planned trips because of videos and I thought that I could further that.

With every video I feel that I learn something. Initially I thought certain things were important that are turning out not to be, and just get in the way of the visuals. Grades for one. Interview-style beta spray is another. These were things I had not seen in videos that I would have liked to see. The best way to find out if it works is to try it on the masses. Looks like it has been left out of videos for a reason. That's fine.

I will continue to learn and make videos for the enjoyment, and I hope that this enjoyment will transfer to the viewer as well. With that said Here are a couple videos using this new philosophy. Enjoy.

Meat Eater, Priest Draw from BLOCHEAD on Vimeo.

As for climbing today I felt okay after two days in bed from the food poisoning, and managed a send of Meat Eater with key links in Carnivore. Both are great climbs, but my energy drained fast and I could not walk away with a send of Carnivore. It felt great to be climbing again. This is such a beautiful place.



  1. Yo did you call my peeps yet?

  2. No, I'm still getting over this food poisoning thing, getting the strength back. I'm taking tomorrow off, climbing a little on Thursday, then headed to Hueco for training. I wish I had more time here. the sickness was a set back, but I'd like to return soon. Thanks again for the numbers, it's a bummer I can't use them this time around.
