Park City, UT // Bracing for impact. French crusher Charlotte Durif (@chadurif), a few body lengths above the Olympic Training Center pool after leaping off the massively intimidating structure in front of hundreds of cheering fans. The turnout was amazing that night, and the beautiful weather made the whole thing such a fun time. I hope they are able to keep these comps up with the #ORshow move to Denver next year. What do you think will or should happen next year? Leave your comments below! :)

HELLO! ๐Ÿ‘‹ I'm back from a little summertime hiatus which has included family time, dentist and doctor appointments, and other such things. ๐Ÿ’‰ It's like hitting the reset button on everything for us these days. Haha. // Here's a shot from Jackson Hole of @joshlrsn on one of many new classics he and others are finding in that area. Have you ever thought of Wyoming as a bouldering destination? What other spots do you think hold potential for climbing? #bouldering #summitworkshopsalumni

3...2...1...GO! // @allisonvest and @bimini_bot take the big leap off the towering @Psicocomp wall. What an amazing comp! Did you watch it live? I was lucky to be there in person with a camera again, my last time having been 2-years ago when it โ˜”๏ธ and cut the comp short. I have wanted to climb on that wall ever since these comps began and I finally got to! I drove up yesterday with @michaelakiersch and @kevin.mcnally for a brief bit. Would you go to the top and leap off? The highest I got was half way (or less) and I was scared ๐Ÿ’ฉ-less. Will the Denver OR show have this comp do you think? // a huge thanks to the organizers @mikecall and everyone else, especially the sponsors @mountainhardwear and @blackdiamond. Such a great evening!

Form is everything. Back up to Park City tonight for the @mountainhardwear @psicocomp this evening. Can't wait! Who do you think will take the trophy home this year? Here's one of the competitors making sure impact is as pain free as possible. If you're up there tonight, say hello. #psicobloc #utah

Michaela Kiersch (@michaelakiersch) having a rest before more business on one of the harder classics in Ceuse a few weeks ago. Can you recognize it? // It's been a whirlwind since our last hike down that hill. Can't wait for a return trip. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒ…#sportclimbing #brandofthebrave

We are winding down our short time here in Lander which is a bummer, but we have lots to stuff to look forward too. A big one is seeing family again and catching up on things and enjoying time together. It's been a lot of fun out here but we look forward to the coming weeks and months ahead. Here's a shot of a classic 12c at Fossil Hill near sunset ๐ŸŒ…. #Lander #wyoming

The Snaps gets snapped. @lightningsnaps up at Fossil Hill on Monday. I believe this is called Hang Fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ and it's a fantastic 12a. I hope to get back up there before we leave and put away some other gems!๐Ÿค˜#Lander #limestone

Well, the 2017 International Climbers' Festival (@climbersfestival) has come to an end, and already we are looking forward to a return trip. I had a blast shooting a few of the events and otherwise just taking in one of the most organized and fun climbing festivals I've ever been to. I highly recommend it to anyone. Here's a couple snaps of friends and some of the things I brought my camera to. Great to meet you if you came and said hello!

Photo booth starting in a little bit here at the 2017 International Climbers Festival. Come upstairs at the Lander Bar, grab a prop and just have fun! 8:30ish to 10:30ish. // #landerbar @climbersfestival #climbing #portraits

Day 1 of the International Climbers Festival (@climbersfestival) is over, but there are many more days and events to enjoy. Last night we all went out and enjoyed the @outdoorresearch sponsored mini film festival and then headed over to #sinkscanyon to experience and shoot photos at the @goalzero Boulder Bash held there. It was a great time with really good weather. If you were there, I hope you had fun on the cool looking blocks. I had no idea there were boulders like this so close to town. ๐Ÿ˜Ž#lander

An ๐ŸŒŠ of blue limestone surrounds @michaelakiersch on her send of the mega classic Face de Rat during some ๐Ÿ’จ conditions. Making the trip there definitely helped us get over the mental barrier of it being so far away in a place we hadn't been and had no beta on. Getting there that first time is maybe the hardest, but we now look forward trying to make it over more regularly if we can swing it. Lesson is: go for it! Save the pennies and make it work, even if for a short trip. It's so worth it. Two-weeks actually felt like a month. // Also, if you're coming out to #Lander for the @climbersfestival, I'll be around shooting portions of the event. Come say hello! #climbing

It has been nothing short of phenomenal climbing and shooting these perfect walls. I think if I had a climbing area soul-mate, this would be mine. So amazing!!! Here's @michaelakiersch looking strong as always while being cool as a ๐Ÿฅ’. @eggtravels and I have had a blast hanging here with you and kev-in (@kevin.mcnally)! #ceรผse #france๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท
