As we've accumulated injuries over the years (gotten older) our focus has shifted toward practical strength and flexibility. Climbing has been a great opportunity and being able to see weekly improvement is a little more than addicting. #brothers#climb#wilmington#strength#belay
This is how those cool organized gear packing photos go, right? Can someone please tell me how I’m supposed to get all of this back down to summery South America, without pretending the airports are arctic expeditions. My piles of clothes & miscellaneous things that arguably don’t need to come with me haven’t even made it into the mess yet. I can’t wait to head back, get the travel behind me, & play with all the toys. Prepárate @southern_guides_patagonia 🐧
FA Alert. Patrick Weldon (@figureheadmediahouse) has been plucking boulders out of the Mulberry river region of the Ozarks non-stop over the past 4 years and this gem is the newest addition. It’s sits right above the road and has some stellar exposure for AR. Colton Lindeman got the FA and dubbed it ‘The Ivory Tower’ V4ish. I’ve got the coordinates if you’d like to give it a hug.
you left miles between us
space and time
what an empty mine for others
I wish we were young again
lost in thoughts we shared with trees
I spoke with seas
simply to know if I could ever leave another ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I remember the first time I discovered and set eyes on this area. It was mind blowing for me and my novice climbing experience. This place shaped me as a climber, it broke down my weaknesses, instilled a healthy obsession, and I grew very close to the geology here. This mountain taught me that all I ever need out of life is the stars, the earth, a warm fire, and my dog. Every time I return, it's like I go back home. I love this place. The rock is amazing, and it is highly concentrated. I can't wait to share it with @tahoeboulderingguides and get other people psyched on it. This area changed me as a person, and it changed my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm not a big slab fan, but this particular rock is indeed mega badass. Pictured is the opening high ball "warm up" slab to the area. It's steeper than the picture makes it seem. I dubbed it "The Path to Enlightenment". It's a very precise, techy, thinly spread slab that really makes you pay attention and think through the movement, and it is definitely a no-fall line. The landing is superb, besides the fact that if you fall, you scrub all the way down the face of the climb 😅. I don't know what I would give it for a grade, I've seen strong climbers feel weary on it. I know it's not even V6, none the less, I feel like it doesn't need a grade. It's just a beautiful piece of rock, and I highly recommend it. Can't wait to share. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tahoenorth#climb#rock#boulder#bouldering#climbon#madrock#madrockclimbing#organic#tahoe#climbing_pictures_of_instagram#lasportiva#climbing_is_my_passion#climbingisbliss#accessfund#optoutside#chalkmatters#rockclimbing#getaboveitall#timetoclimb#climbing_lovers#tahoebouldering#explore#mountains#grippedmagazine#climbingmag#justsendit#scarpana#truckee#donner
