Why do we climb? That’s a really long conversation I’ll cover from different perspectives this winter. It changes on some things person to person but there are some really similar points. Quick insight without the story from myself is the things you learn from within yourself. After years of other action sports(or adrenaline related sports)....there’s not a single one that will teach you more about yourself as climbing. Being on a route that has a lot of risk and when you put protection in on chossy shit that will probably rip out if you take a fall anyways, gives you insight on what you’re willing to risk, your skill level, and being able to put everything to the side and accomplish what is at hand and to come back to your loved ones at the end of the day. That’s just a fraction of a sliver of why we do what we do and I’ll cover it more in this years “mini series” that I attempt to edit and put together from several prospectives throughout the season in video format. I employ everyone reading this to think about climbing, you’ll learn more in one day than most learn about themselves in an entire lifetime. Cheers everyone! More to come soon!

Fremont Canyon is by far the coolest crag I’ve ever been to.
Whenever I think I have rock climbing all figured out I manage to find a place that makes me feel like a beginner all over again. I’m grateful for places that put butterflies in my stomach and remind me how amazing and inspiring this sport is.
Now I can check rappelling off of a chain link fence pole into a canyon and climbing above the water off of my bucket list!

Side note: if you ever get the chance see if you can get this man to give you one of his heart-melting winks!
It’s hot as heck out there, Casper. But unless you have been living under a rock, you already know that. Our best advice for the next few days: get as close to the water as you can. Luckily you have options... the river, the splash pad, ponds, creeks and the falls all await you! (Now that we think of it, under a rock might be one of the coolest places to be this week 🤔) #5150Local
