Last year I made the goal of climbing 12, 5.12s in the year 2012. I climbed my first on June 30th, and had 2 layoffs from other life that got in the way. 12 in a calendar year still appeared to me, and was a fairer goal to myself since I essentially had less than 6 months left in 2012. It took a while to build momentum, but I kept meeting psyched partners and things started falling into place. I couldn't have done it without the support of all the friends and family who care for me. Each of my first 12 5.12s had a different belayer, something I'm really proud of because each send has a story to it as well. I finished 55 days ahead of my deadline, with two of my most important sends so far, my first 5.12c's.

Goals are entirely personal, and private, I usually don't brag but I am soo stoked this all came together for me. 6 more routes to go and then I need a new ticklist.
