I thought my 2018 climbing season was over but I just had to take advantage of the mildish weather today. Got out to Greenlaw and climbed a few nice pitches. The days are so short this time of year! As a bonus I climbed two 5.11's which brings my count of 5.11 sends to an even 100 for 2018!

January this year, I told myself I’d be a better climber by the end of 2018. I had ripped a hand on my first outdoor climb, sat out for the rest of the day, and thought “I can do better than that”. This time I was 100x more prepared and played on an “easy” but really fun route called Grippers Traverse with @humanintraining 🧗♀️ There’s something a little crazy, really fun, and super humbling about challenging your mind and body on Joshua Tree granite!
@tompaulrandall working the moves on Lamb of God (5.14). Had a great time exploring the bowels of the desert with him and @petewhittaker01 last year. Psyched to have this shot picked by @climbingmagazine as one of the best photos of the year. #rockclimbing#tradclimbing
The best days are the ones where you take two pictures as soon as you get to the climbing spot and then forget about your phone for the rest of the day. So much laughter & bad-assery with our killer crew @dellis0503 @rockitari Seth Sean @archiekins23 Amanda. The Ruins is quickly becoming one of my favorite places on Mt Lemmon. #livetoclimb#climbtolive#timetoclimb#whyilovewhereilive
Mothership Connection V4 - such a weird, unique problem! The crux requires a very sketchy feeling heel toe cam to get out of the roof and I just couldn’t quite get myself to commit to it!
It’s already been a month since the crew got home from Bishop and I’m ready to go back...
