Changes

The last month has brought about some big changes in my life. Just over 2 weeks ago, I moved to Boulder, CO. I am currently “funemployed” - no work, all play. After going from working 40 hours a week to none at all, I don’t really know what to do with myself other than climb, climb, and then climb some more. I have made a number of “solo” trips to Chaos Canyon, which have actually been quite productive:

  • Sent some cool new climbs
  • Saw a bear
  • Took some naps, got a sunburn

While I enjoy having weekend sessions with friends, I also enjoy the peace and quite when I take trips to the Park by myself on the weekdays. I am so amazingly lucky to live where I do. A world class climbing area, RMNP, is right in my own backyard. 

It has been an incredibly warm summer in the alpine, but cooler temperatures are coming. Its almost send-time!

My kind friend, Juliana Gaines, wrote a very nice (maybe too nice…) blog post about me. 

My greatest love affair.

I’m currently involved in an intense love affair with chaos canyon. I want, I need, I crave. Its an addiction, really. Never is my thirst fully satisfied. Sometimes just thinking about it, I get so worked up…. I am forced to worry for my sanity a little. 

My current status as “weekend warrior” isn’t enough to quench the thirst. I want to project hard climbs, I want to send all the ones in between. But I am so limited by time. Never enough time. If I could, I would climb at the Park 5 days a week. The hike? Worth it. Absolutely worth it, never a doubt in my mind. 

Is this true love?? Is that why it torments me so? Well… It is Sunday again, 5 more days until I can return.

Girls Sesh @ the Pass

Last week I went to Ute Pass with some friends for a fun afternoon session.

I made Jewels pose so that I could photograph her on this rock. She was a good sport.

Jewels on the Megaton Traverse.

I briefly spent some time on my lifetime project, the Gusher. Most find this problem uninspiring, but for some reason I am really attracted to it - have been for the last 3(!!!) years.

I did not do it. One day I will figure out how to actually top this thing out.

A beautiful afternoon at the Pass.

The GURL CRU.

Me, Jewels, Juli

And then we decided that it would be appropriate to flex our muscles for the camera ….

…. And some more ….

  • The lease has been signed.... I move to Boulder, CO in August!

Mini-vacation!

I initially wrote a very thorough blog post detailing the events of this past weekend. However, upon review I realized….. who actually wants to take the time to read that much, especially about my weekend activities. So for your ease of reading I have condensed it to the following:

  • Saving $900 > Flying to OK for my family reunion = Mini-vacation along I-70
  • Day 1, Friday: Area A, Today is the day I will send Bierstadt! Except it wasn’t.
  • I discovered yogurt-covered raspberries. Highlight.
  • Day 2: The Aircraft Carrier Boulder, Red Cliff.
  • Fulfilled my quota of 1 7B+ per week with a quick send of Romeo, just before the start of the rain.
  • Clam chowder from King Soops.
  • World cup. Go Shauna & Puccio!
  • Oh gawd. Why did I eat clam chowder from King Soopers? Mild food poisoning.
  • Hot tub at the Tivoli Lodge in Vail.
  • Day 3: Woo! No more feeling sick!
  • Fancy breakfast at the Tivoli. Ryan paid (what a sucker).
  • Back to Red Cliff! This time to the Kluttergarden.
  • Back to Boulder.
  • Bought some herbs. Planted some herbs in a pot. Bought book about herbs. Gave herbs & herb book to Ryan’s mother at the Cheesecake Factory for her birthday.
  • Great mini-vacation success.

Alrighty, there you have it. A lot of going-ons. Not much of anything.

On the way to Red Cliff.

About:

About.... What is there to say about myself?

My name is Sarah Fullerton and I enjoy hiking for hours at a time to big rocks just so I can try (over and over again) to reach the top. In other words, I am a boulderer.

I am a graduate of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and hold a bachelors degree in Sport Management. I have a passion for the Olympic Movement and am excited to be a part of it during my time working for USA Weightlifting.
