Michaela (@michaelakiersch) questing a little on the classic Les Colonnettes a year ago. Wishing I was over there with the fun folks we had last time. Hope you’re all having a great summer! @edwinteran @smile.world.tour @michaelakiersch @kevin.mcnally @eggtravels

Klemen Bečan (@kbecan25) on the 🌊 in #Oliana this spring. I met him very briefly in Ceuse last year and saw him again in Spain this year. He and his wife are probably the nicest people I’ve met at any crag I’ve ever been to. They set the bar for being generous and kind — especially about sharing knowledge regarding climbing systems and keeping things safe. I always endeavor to get better and safer, and am always open ears about doing things a better way. Speaking with them was enlightening. I try never to be afraid to ask for input, even if it seems like you “should know” this or that. It’s all experience we are trying to get, and finding mentors isn’t always easy. Did any of you become the climber you are with the help of a mentor? If so, how’d you find one? Cheers to all the climbers out there that share their knowledge humbly. I know I have always appreciated it. Thank you! #mentorship

In the words of Tina Fey, ‘I want to go to there’. #redrivergorge #climbing

Portrait of Delaney Miller. Oliana, Spain. // I bumped into Delaney and her partner @nickduttle in Oliana. She’s the 2014 SCS National champ, and when she’s not competing, she is probably training hard or clipping the chains on a 5.14. She is one of many extremely talented young female climbers taking the torch and pushing the sport forward these days. #facesofoliana // •

@hazel_findlay clipping the chains of the very difficult and sustained route “China Crisis” in Oliana, Spain // What are you all doing as the spring season fades and temps rise? When I can’t get outside (which is often right now) I’ve been really motivated on the @moonclimbing #moonboard. What problems do you all like on that thing for training power in the v8/9 range? The hardest part for me is finding the best ones with so many options available. 😳😜💪 •

Well, like all good things, this one must come to an end. Our beloved #1969airstream #overlander is up for sale. It’s been to #hueco, #zionnationalpark, #flagstaff, #lander, the #rgg, and places in between. It’s been a fantastic journey with you ol buddy, but in order for the next chapter to begin, the current one must close. If you are looking for a mid century modern treasure that can serve as your home away from home, this is for you. It’s got 400 Watts of @renogy solar on top, and all the amenities inside to live comfortably wherever you want. Except shadowy, cell service-less canyons, those are a bitch to work from. I’m looking at you, Rifle and Maple Canyon. 🙁 For more information, check the the link in my profile. 👈 // •

‘Fight or Flight’, 9b. Congratulations @honngy! It was inspiring watching Matty get closer and closer on that thing. The hard work he put in on this beast paid off. Well done! Glad you kept at it and didn’t let the conditions wear you down. Drink up! 🍾👞 // •

Trailer renovations have had us pretty busy lately. Basically, since I got home we have ripped out tons of copper in our Airstream bathroom—a mega project we have put off for a year and a half because when you live out of the small space you’re working on, things get a little crazy. (I know you feel me @lightningsnaps and @han.dee). Simultaneously, we have been working on a 16’ #scamp16. That will be our temporary home as we move on from #airstreamlife in the coming days and weeks. Pretty pumped at how well @eggtravels painted this thing. What do you think? Also, shout out to #asheville #smallbusiness @theoldwoodcompany for the sick table. That thing drops down to a bed. 😎🤗😴 •

Portrait of Thomas Blaabjerg (@thomasblaabjerg). Oliana, Spain. // Thomas was a co-habitant of the apartment building I stayed at in Oliana. He and his friends @kenneth_climbs, @torjo, and @jdpetersdotcom, all made for fantastic meals and great laughs. They even made fresh bread 🥖 every day. #sogood 😳😎 On top of being a wonderful chef, Thomas is a talented climber and the first Dane to climb 9a with his ascent of Joe-Cita on March 22. Nice work dude. 👏👊 (Sorry, I don’t have a shot of you climbing.) 😣 // •

Portrait of Felipe Camargo (@felipe.camargo). Oliana, Spain // my second installment of the faces of Oliana project. Using the word ‘project’ makes it sounds more official than it is 🤓, the whole thing was really just a challenge to myself to try and photograph some of the many characters present at the cliff on a given day. Since we were in #oliana, the chances were high that I projected their warmup. The chances were also high that each person was incredibly nice, gracious, funny, and #motivado. Felipe is a young professional climber from 🇧🇷. Check his feed for some bad ass images and video of him crushing stuff handsomely. This guy is muy tranquilo but strong as strong gets. // Photo 2: Felipe on Pachamama (5.15) •
