2018: here I come! I'm really proud of how far I've come in the 6 months I've been climbing. This climb would have looked so impossible to me just a few months ago and I was surprised I even made it this far. Baby steps! Also gotta love @thecliffslic #liveclimbrepeat
"Bad Blood in the Baker Backcountry" story just hit shelves. Check out the rad regional publication @ascentbackcountry to read more about the backcountry skiing map that spurred on some aggro-localism, as well as a conversation on who has the right to the terrain.

This weekend was super rad, today was especially great. My legs were stiff and sore from the running yesterday and I told myself that I would just get out and do a short ski tour to see how snow conditions were and to also check out some new areas. Starting off was rough, I was exhausted and I lost my breath within the first 5 minutes. But I kept on and eventually made it to where I told myself I’d turn around, instead I decided to test the snow and surprisingly the pack was quite stable. Which was not what I was expecting at all, so I decided to finish the trip to the top of the pass. Once I got to the top I threw my pack down and sat against it to just take in the gorgeous blue bird sky day while listening to Cat Stevens Miles From Nowhere. You really never know where the journey will lead you. I’ve had my days where I’ve had to force myself out the door, and other times I’m running out the door. There are times when the sun is shining and the conditions are fantastic, and there are times when the skies are gloomy and you wonder why you even left your warm bed. I guess the whole point of this aimless ramble is that it’s good to get out and explore, I read an article a while back on Alpinism. About how to get good at Alpine climbing - something that comes very slowly - and the best advice it gave was to always get out. To treat every endeavor as an exploratory endeavor. Maybe you don’t make it that far every time. Maybe you have to turn around, or the weather turns, or you have to go out alone. But at least you got out and we can learn a lot by just getting out.
Four years ago me and @kivinentie woke up to witness this rare, clear and calm morning in the Torre Valley, Patagonia. On this perfect day we climbed Chiaro di Luna on St. Exupery, which still is one of the most enjoyable climbs I’ve done in Patagonia. Damn I miss this place! #nextyearforsure#patagonia#cerrotorre#wishiwasthere
I’ve made some decisions about my goals for the winter. They include climbing, lots of climbing, and developing love for the dirty ditch. Oh, and hey Tammy! Bet you didn’t know I took this photo of you 😜 #liveclimbrepeat
When a cute local wants to watch the sunset with you, how could you say no? Sad that the sun is setting on this trip, but loving all the memories it has given me with these amazing people I can call friends. I guess I'll see you soon, snow. 🤙🏼
