Today was tough, little sleep, working behind a computer all day and needed to get out of the office and blow off some steam and get some training in. I work in Laguna Beach about 50 yards from the ocean (poor me). I often cross train in the water by Stand Up Paddling or swimming. […]

Valerie and Louie were kind enough to let me come in yesterday to preview and boulder a bit at their new gym prior to the grand opening later this month (April 21). The space is very open and the wall angles are very deceiving. My first thought was the place looks great, but why are […]
