TBS 7 Comes to MetalMark
Saturday afternoon, MetalMark will be hosting the 7th annual Touchstone bouldering series at the gym. The route setters have been busy establishing new boulder problems. From 1 to 5pm, the Fresno gym will be filled with awesome climbing.
Mike Doyle, a Canadian youth climbing team coach, wrote an excellent training manual for people that want to train for a comp series. Doyle's instructions include an awesome visualization technique.
There's also some great information out there about nutrition that helps. There's lots of thoughts regarding carbohydrate intake, dieting, and what foods help performance. Here's a cool link to some information about climbing competition food.
The comp will be a blast. There will be pizza and beer for those not looking for a strict diet. There will be a ton of fun for everyone.
MetalMark will also be hosting the Reel Rock Film Tour at 7:30. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. The Tour features an awesome segment about the Nose speed record and Diablo Rock Gym manager Hans Florine will be showing in the film.
