First climb after knee surgery
Stay out of my orthopedic surgeons long enough that i can take him out of my favorites on my cell phone which means
- no more broken legs
- no more knee surgeries

I need to say I appreciate our relationship, i mess it up and you fix it, but we have to end this relationship cold turkey.....

Is that too much to ask for a goal for 2013?

Climbing goals don't really ever change for me.

So my goals are to continue as I have been for many years now.

Boils down to climbing one hell of a lot, hitting many new areas, doing some FA's, and having a fucking BLAST on the rock!!!

You stay away from mah pig!
Find a decent job, leave Ohio, and move somewhere nearer to good climbing, either in the Southeast or the West. Everything else is going to be minor.

It would also be nice to recover fully from my broken foot (I hear you, Chuck, surgery and recovery time sucks), climb more long routes and fewer sport projects, and see some new crags. Looking back on 2012, I did not go to one new place the entire year, which was my biggest disappointment.

Me and the offspring walking back to the car after...
I'd like to be a nicer person overall. As it stands now, I'm somewhat crude and tactless, although honest. Some people value this trait, but more often than not, people value tact and discretion and this is important because I'm a pretty social person. At least I know I'm this way. That's a benefit I think.

Also, I'd like to really focus on getting a handle on my mental game. I psyche myself out far too easily. I'd like to get more quality time on rock. I burned a few trips up this year fucking with people that clog the logistics up. I need to find one or two solid partners that are near my ability range and have the same goals and want to get in as many pitches in as many places in as little time as possible- as opposed to having a large pool of cool people that just want to "go" if that makes any sense. I'd rather spend the majority of my trips with someone that doesn't necessarily make me laugh until I fart around a fire, but is a machine on the rock. Ideally both criteria would be met, but that seems to be tough to find.

I hope everyone gets what they work for this year. Keep stoke alive.

To finally get rid of this damn golfer's elbow that I've had for 14 months.

If that happens, it would be awesome to climb Cap'm Pissgums and maybe make it up to the Black Canyon and/or Canyonlands at some point.

I took only one trip (long weekend) in 2012. Hoping for a few more than that in 2013, although with a baby coming in April I don't know if that will happen. If I do manage a few trips:

-Flash/OS 5.12
-Take my first climbing trip to the Black Hills
-Make it back to one of these areas: Joe's, SoIll, City of Rocks
-Run at least 3 half-marathons and 1 full.

On Waimea, 5.10d
Get a better job so I can afford a car (I live in Brooklyn, NY). I really think not having my own car is the biggest thing holding back my climbing. I'd be out every weekend during the season if I had my own wheels. Meanwhile, I'd estimate not having a car reduces my days on rock by over 50%. Charles Kinbote

I hear you brother. I grew up in Ohio and other than fishing I was always traveling to find something outdoors. Look in SLC. Been here five years and wish I had made the move long ago. Its got everything including jobs. But keep it quiet.

I'm not posting up my goals here. Instead I drew them up in a checklist form and put them on the wall in the kitchen.

I'll see the list every day, on my way to get a beer, or bacon, or brownies, or candy.... maybe I make some dietary goals too.

14 months? Damn, I better get to rehabing this!

One motivational component for goal setting is accountability, so posting them up here and letting other see, in addition to yourself seeing it daily on the fridge, could have some benefits!

That said -
5.13 in 2013! Anyone have any golden words of advice for improving over a full number grade in a year? =P
Honestly though, a few .12s are on my radar, and hopefully actually work/project a thing or few and find out where my limits really are - something I haven't really done much so far.

Axes glistening in the sun
Short term... my goal is to get out of Florida (of which I am working the next 3-4 weeks) back home to the mountains of CO and climb some freaking ice!

Long term get back to climbing 3- 4 days per month with some extended trips mingled in.

Me Too! But I think my non-climber wife might have a problem with that.

My personal goal is the climb a cumulative 10,000 feet outside this year...not easy to do in Dallas. That would kill my total of approx. 500 feet last year...not a good year last year.

quit being a sissy la la and lead every 5.10 I climb. Oh and lead a 5.10 OW. Specifically Y Crack in the Mcdowells needs to be knocked off my list (ya I know its a 5.9 it's hard) and Generator Crack needs to fall to me.
Also same goal I had last year, climb one destination place a month. Even if it means making overnight drives there and back.

Kevin, good luck on the cancer thing, I've seen a bunch of people beat it. And if you haven't already, check out an organization called First Descents. Free camps, including rock climbing, for young adults who have or had cancer. Cool peeps, good times. Mark Hammond
