Hueco 2.0 (Part II)

Here's the second part of my Hueco 2.0 series sponsored by La Sportiva.

In other news, I competed in the ABS Bouldering Nationals the week before last and fared pretty well. I got 13th in the qualifiers and 19th in the semi's (so a final result of 19th place). I made a few mistakes that I shouldn't have, but that's how it goes for everyone. Nevertheless, the competition was a ton of fun and training for it got me strong (and also minorly tweaked in the shoulder. I'll be uploading a post about the comp and some video of me on the problems.


  1. Michael's Belay Glasses: http://belayglass.blogspot.com/ Don't crane your neck while belaying. Michael's Belay Glasses allow the belayer to comfortably assume a closer position to the base of climbs which translates to a safer belay. They allow the belayer to more fully concentrate their attention to the task at hand, especially on long, protracted sessions. They accomplish this at roughly a 1/4 of the cost of the other product on the market, putting this easier into the average climbers budget. One of the advantages of prism ware is that they don't invert the image of the climber the way a mirror would and that they slightly magnify what one sees. All belay glasses currently manufactured use a 60 degree (not 90) deviation. 90 degrees would have a great deal of the field of vision obscured by ones face and hair. Yes, they do take some getting used to insofar as the belayers ground level field of vision, the fact that the image one sees appears as a low angle slab, and that they are heavier than a pair of sunglasses. However, most climbers quickly learn to feel more then comfortable using and overwhelmingly swear by them. They come with a carrying case and are deliverable within 6-8 weeks.
