    Enjoying the end of summer in Val calanca. The shady sectors stayed wet so after this day we moved to chironico.
    And surfing took its toll. I could not send this 7a+
    Which is OK because the 4m death Slab after the jump did not look super inviting. Click image for larger version.

    I got to hang out in one of my favorite fall spots for a brief visit. Was so cold, flurrying and blowing. I don't know how these "sending temps" guys do it. My camera battery couldn't. Brrrrrr.

    The final head wall of CRESTONE Needle after the traverse from CRESTONE Peak…. Ten hours RTfrom lower S. Colony Lake, and man the descent down Broken Hand Pass was brutal…. Awesome day in the mountains.

    Really cool shit!! Well done man, I can only imagine how thrashed your knees are.

    Had a bit of a hard year - remodel, lots of work shit, marriage falling apart, etc. Not climbing as much or as hard as I would like, but still trying to get out and get after it.

    Managed to pull off the onsight of a heady, thin 11a mixed route at City called Self Abuse. Pretty fkn stoked.

    Dude if you’re on sighting 11a I’d hate to see what you would do if you were dialed in….Badass!

    Thanks but the goal this year was to get on Crack of Doom and unless that happens this weekend it's not happening this year.

    Still, it's always good to get out, regardless of outcome

    Yeah in re reading my post it feels a bit like a humble brag, which wasn't my intent. Just stoked to be pushing myself as hard as I can, trying to onsight shit that is just barely, barely within reach. Self abuse was sustained, thoughtful, hyper techy climbing with long sequences of 10+ moves that all felt just barely doable - And I'm psyched that I was able to push myself to do something that felt so hard.

    The point of climbing is always the internal struggle, not what anyone else is doing. So, I'm stoked for all the awesome stoke here, and for the opportunity to see what other people are pushing themselves on, since it encourages me to push myself.

    I was stoked for you, tgapp, and inspired too! I have been on the fence about leading this trad climb that I have toproped clean because the upper section (which is easier) has very sparse and smaller pro. But, if it's dry and I'm feeling it this weekend I am going to go for the send now!

    Hell yeah dude, how did it go?? There's one really hard lead around here (The Flying Dutchman) with sparse gear up top - I've thought about clipping a rope to the anchors and tieing a few bights in it so that I can clip into them while actually leading it, I know that might not be the best form but it would still make that lead possible for me.

    Today I got out and did ~8 pitches of 5.7--5.8 slab and crack. Easy, moderate, cruiser, with perfect temps, company, and rock. I love days like these, and it felt like a great way to send off the season.

    Just crop a tiny bit out of the photo, rotate it 360, click save, and it should post upright.

    It's hard to pick between shooting and climbing so I flail at both.

    This weekend I trained the next Generation.
    The big girl sending a 3 or 4 slab at age 5. If she doesn't reach 8A by age 10 I will deny her my love because she is not living my dream! Click image for larger version.

    Chironico autumn holidays. I've only cruised around 7A+/7B Max (V6v7) because snot ran out of all my orifices and I coughed all the the time.
    But my girl did her first adult boulder with an official white arrow start.
