It's been a busy month or two but training is going well. I am starting to notice some results from all my hard work. Hoping to make even more progress before the Portland Boulder Rally and then Yank and Yard.

I have taken advantage of Orbital Climbings personal training and am expecting my new training plan very soon. I am excited to get back on track with a more structured training plan that will help me ramp up for the upcoming USAC National Cup Series that will start in October.

There have been a lot of changes over the last few weeks so I am going to try and sum them up briefly. First was a Bishop trip with a large group of friends. I finally managed to get the opening moves to acid wash sit. I was able to put together Acid Wash Right from the sit start. Still no send on Stained Glass sadly.

Last week I had the opportunity to get a body comp assessment. They used the ultrasound method and found that I have around an 18% body fat. I had never gotten to do one of these assessments but it was supper cool. Along with all the new changes I am working on a new training routine.

Outside of athletics I finished school and started a new job. I am really excited to see what the next few months have in store for me!

Hey I'm Nick Edwards. I am a lifelong resident of Oregon and recently moved to the Portland area. Climbing isn’t my hobby; it's part of who I am. When I started climbing in 2003, it took over my life like an addiction. Since then I have competed in many competitions and traveled to many wonderful outdoor climbing destinations. I became the first official president of the Oregon State Indoor Climbing Club in 2015. As president I worked with the club to make our climbing community more welcoming. I am currently training and looking forward to the next season of competitions and outdoor trips. 

Some of my favorite sends:
* Evilution to the lip, V10 (Buttermilk Boulders)
* Beefcake, V10 (Sad Boulders)
* Lowrider, V10 (Happy Boulders)
* Worm World Cave, V9 (Squamish)
* Big K, V8 (Kraft boulders)

Goals for 2017:
* Continue to push my limits in bouldering.
* Send The Swarm (V13) in Bishop, CA.
* Return to sport climbing.
* Write blog posts and product reviews.
* Get involved in local climbing organizations.
* Help make the climbing community a welcoming place for everyone.

Accomplishments:
* First president of Oregon State University's Indoor Rock Climbing Club.
* 2017 overall 2nd place for men's open in the Northwest Collegiate Climbing Circuit (NC3)
* 2016 overall 2nd place for men's open in the NC3
* 2015 overall 1st place for men's open in the NC3
