Just Training - A Monkey Bar Eliminate Video

This isn't breaking news, but it's getting warm here in Vegas. I know that a gym membership is inevitable and when the time comes I'll be motivated to train indoors, but for now I've been reluctant to throw in the towel on Red Rocks. It's especially tough to hit the gym when I live less than 5 miles from the Kraft parking lot. That said I've been climbing a lot of eliminates and link ups on the Monkey Bar boulder for fitness and training. It's such a perfect boulder and I spend a lot of time warming up there for Gateway Canyon projects so I thought it would be nice to always look for something new and keep it interesting. Yeah, I know what you're thinking and I agree, eliminates and link ups are just barely better than plastic, but I have to work with what's available.

Since this site is all but officially a video blog I thought I would include an eliminate I was able to do yesterday in case anyone else out there is also shying away from plastic and is looking for something else to try on the Monkey Bar Boulder. I must have tried the big move 15 times before finally reeling in the crazy helicopter swing!
