So I decided to join the hoards of climbers taking a stab at American Ninja Warrior. I've been training a bunch for the show and am hoping I get selected to go to qualifiers. Here's the video I put together as part of my application.

It seems that climbers have the best chance to succeed on the show as lots of the obstacles have an emphasis on upper body strength. I've always enjoyed balance obstacles and challenges like this. I'm mostly psyched to get on the show because I think it'll be really fun to run the courses. There is also a strong mental component to performing when you are put on the spot. Hopefully my experience with executing on hard trad routes and highball boulder problems will help with this.
