    When your buddy from home yells your name and comes running afar taking you by total surprise as you are scoping out the swell at the beach in lands faraway. It's a small beautiful world. #sayulita #mexico #happynewyear #love #surf #surfing #friends

    Goofing around on Monkeyfinger 12b in Zion from last month. Sitting in my office cubicle, the desert feels so far but paying real world dues only makes me appreciate outdoor playtime that much more! #utah #zion #climbers #climbing #crack

    What do climbers do with 6 days of rain forecasted? They clean and up and get cocktails, what else? #climbers #sanfrancisco #climbing #holidays #cocktails #theclimbersparty2016 #climbhardpartyharder

    And the great SW roadtrip comes to and end. This may be the first time I've been fortunate to climb on three different types of rock - granite, limestone, and sandstone - in one trip! Highlights though were the friendships kindled, places visited and oh yeah frozen water bottles one of the colder nights camping. Ole putting his massive breakfast to use on this crucial high step on Monkeyfinger in Zion. Stoked happy to come back home in the Bay. Until next time! #sanfrancisco #climbing #zion #mountains #thanksgiving #active #tryhard #roadtrip

    The Utah landscape came fierily alive right after a light shower and before the sun went down. A run around the hood where I couldn't really keep up with these two young bucks meant I was better off taking breaks to soak in the gorgeous light. #utah #sunset #run #mountains #thanksgiving #running

    This Thanksgiving holiday I am grateful to be able to spend my life doing the things I love, with friends who make me smile, and the blessings of my family who give me wings to fly. ❀️ Checked out Zion today. Relieved to be finishing up the 3rd pitch of Monkeyfinger - a 900
    foot splitter route at the Temple of Sinawava - though my butt was soundly kicked on most of the route. At Grade IV, 5.12B it was the first hard climb to be established at Zion back in 1984. Glad we were able to check it out today. Thomas, thanks for the extra cams and the beta! #climbing #stayactive #thegoodlife #zion #mountains

    Lynn Hill once said that Levitation 29 was her all time favorite climb. I don't know...I think the yellow 10b at Mission Cliffs is better? Kidding! This climb is fun. Go do it. Mike tick-tacking through the endless crimps somewhere middle of the wall. A day where the approach was just as epic as the climb! #climbing #redrocks #vegas #thegoodlife #stayactive

    If you like the outdoors and want to relish 5 star luxury on a shoestring, I've just the answer for you. Camp a few nights in sub-freezing temps, do something Intense and exhausting daytime, like huge multi pitches, long trail runs, or go swim naked in icy swimming holes if that's your thing. Remember to only eat simple stuff, bars, tuna, pasta, and the like. Then after all this type 2 stoke, find a cheap ass motel room, like this one in Barstow, CA where we paid all of $36, where the hot shower will feel like the finest jacuzzi, and the shitty bed will envelope you like the most sensuous linens from Egypt. Finally, sink into a 10 hour slumber, soothed in the glow of knowledge that you are indeed in the top 1%, and dream those sweet dreams! #thegoodlife #motels #america #climbing #camping

    Oh yes, I can so totally relate to that. Every night I love the cheap motel we are staying. A hot shower feels amazing after a day of climbing at 35 - max of 40 Fahrenheit (in the sun)

    A few years ago before I took up trad climbing I espied a jaw dropping shot of Dean Potter soloing the North Face of the Rostrum, a route I later learnt is considered one of the world's best free granite routes. This year I dedicated myself to getting better at trad and set a stretch goal of attempting this climb soon. Today on my last day in Yosemite for the season I partnered up with my friend and all around rockstar Ole and climbed this route finishing with the last light of the late fall sun - dude, you on-sighted the crap out of this route! I'm inspired to come back next year to lead this route clean. Off-widths I vow to learn to love you one day! Who wants to train together? #mountains #yosemite #tryhard #fall #friends #offwidtharmy #climbing
