Inspired by the 2012 highlights thread.

What are your climbing-related goals / resolutions for 2013? Specific or general.

I am sure other's will have much harder (better ?) goals, but mine is a tick list of 12 5.12 routes that kicked my ass in 2012 that i think i should have been able to send, also, in august/september will be biking from my house in SLC down to Maple canyon for an 8 day climbing trip (roughly 240 miles round trip) zenetopia

1. Get better at bouldering/sport climbing
2. Work weaknesses: Crimps, off-width, splitters
3. Stay inspired, motivated, have fun
4. Hit Potrero Chico for a couple weeks, then back to flagstaff-climb at the waterfall a lot, save $ and go to yosemite early!
- El Cap.

-do a bigwall
-boulder at least one legit V7
-climb at least one solid 5.12
-summit at least one 14k ft peak
-visit at least 3 climbing destinations that I've never been to
-no injuries

A sort of ambitious list, but I think doable. I'm guessing the 5.12 will be the hardest goal since I'm not very good at dedicating time to projecting routes, and I doubt I'll get strong enough to do a 5.12 without working it a bunch.

Solo the Blitzen Ridge

The Black Dagger on the Diamond

Scenic Cruise in the Black Canyon

Any 5.11 at Lumpy (Those Lumpy 11s are freaking hard!)

The Naked Edge

Climb a route on 5 major formations at Lumpy Ridge in a day

Boulder any legit V7

Make it to Yosemite

Some of these are more realistic than others but it gives me something to strive towards.
