QuaranTraining, Part Deux: Cabin Fever in the Time of COVID-19

Ok, we really weren’t going to do another one of these round ups, but there was just too much funny/ridiculous/brilliant content out there of people QuaranTraining in their houses for us not to.

Irene Yee, better known to some of you as Lady Lock Off, broke out the Big Bros for the fearsome bathroom squeeze chimney.


Cabinet and Counter Free Climbing has its challenges, sure. But what about Fireplace Aid Cimbing?? Paolo Grisa completed the first ascent of the Quarantine Spur in His Living Room, naming it Il Corona. He graded it 4c A3+ (5.8 A3+).


Somehow though, it seems kitchens just have the most potential for FATHAs (First Around-The-House Ascents). Oh those poor, poor cabinets.

I had a great time climbing today! I got the first ascent on this V1 kitchen sit-start problem. I shall name this route Social Distancing! Yay it's my first FA! I highly reccomend this route as a warm-up to the Kitchen Traverse. I think it's a V5. I haven't sent yet, but I'm projecting it during quarantine. . Let's get through this together, everyone. Try to stay inside, don't panic, Netflix, be positive, and relax. Don't go travel and climb. .

Lorenzo Van Dee called this one the Haute Cuisine Traverse.



There are dozens of other awesome FATHAs (First Around-The-House Ascents, in case you missed it the first time) that have gone down in the past few days. Keep up the QuaranTraining everyone!
