Training to heli-ski on the North and South faces of Annapurna. Turn your volume on. I hope you are all enjoying the snow this winter my friends. :) #skiingislife #freeskier #livetoski #trainingday #skiingpowder #gopro #goprohero7 #goprosnow #wanderlust #adventure #reiproject1440 #pnwonderland #getoutside #getfit #mountaincollective #neverstopexploring #skinepal

#tbthursday photo as a reminder to be cautious and safe in the mountains this time of year. With all the new snowfall in the #pnw conditions are both epic and hazardous. Avalanche warnings are being issued daily and we all need to take heed when partaking in our adventures. With that being said, with a bit a caution there is a lot of fun to be had. Be safe, enjoy and Happy Holidays to you all!

Nice view of the south portion of the ridge of the Matthes Crest , ending with a panorama of what we had just climbed including the South Summit from the North Summit.

Yosemite climbing often demands that you stick your feet, hands, legs, elbows and whatever you can use into the cracks. But what was I thinking with the tongue? Ha!

On top of the South Summit of Matthes Crest after climbing along the ridge. From here we down-climbed to the col and climbed the North Tower (seen in the backdrop from the south summit) via the 5.9 ("reachy"move) variation. Beautiful day in a great setting.

@arminfisher Running out the opening pitches on the Matthes Crest. A great ridge climb in an almost surreal and remote setting!

One from the archives as I head to Yosemite this weekend. Have I ever expressed my dislike for chimneys to you ? Make sure your volume is on :) Is anybody in the valley this weekend? Wondering about the weather.

Daff Dome from the parking area looks like this featureless, intimidating climb yet there is this perfect crack that runs right up the middle of this giant face. Hanging in the belay on West Crack, enjoying the views on a perfect fall day in #toulumnemeadows.
