Elise Sethna  Here's to the adventures that inspire us to dream bigger, go further and experience deeper

All smiles, a psyched crew and a whole lot of early season pump on the first couple spring climbing days in the Rocky Mountains. β€’
There is something extraordinarily energizing about spending time outside. I am immediately disconnected from the things in life that don't really matter and I get an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the things that really do. Stoked for a wicked climbing season outside!! β€’

Laying back on a crack climb like a true sport climber πŸ˜‚ I just love how after 16 years of climbing I can still explore new horizons in a sport I've grown to be so comfortable and confident in. Comfort is a scary feeling for me and I am so appreciative of supportive friends who keep me learning on my toes. β€’
One of my focus goals for this rock season is to get a better head space for trad climbing and push my grades on traditional multi pitches. Thanks to @make_love_to_life and @msklackey for helping me get through my first trad lead of the season (3rd ever) and not laughing at me too hard when I was doing the crack climbing techniques allllllllll wrong πŸ™ŒπŸΌ #squamishisawesome #tradisrad #soscary #sofun

Keep your eyes on the prize πŸ‘€

Had oodles of fun at the @bolderclimbing opening competition a couple weekends ago. These guys know how to do it. Spot lights, volumes, dynos, music, drinks, food trucks, an energizing crowd and a surprise elimination final. Yup. Pretty awesome. β€’
My sights are now set on my all time favourite competition of the year - the Vail World Cup. The atmosphere is unreal every year and the experience itself, results aside, always leaves me with a smile on my face. Time to cut down on the ice cream intake and get to some serious training!! #icecreamaddict #teamcanada #bouldering #bolderclimbingcommunity β€’ πŸ“· @letoitben

Taken on a short hike right in Vancouver city limits. I have to say it's hard not to fall in love with this place #vancouver #adventure

It sure isn't pretty but I did my first ring muscle up today! I tried this for the first time a couple weeks ago and failed miserably then today BAM πŸ’₯ I guess all I needed was a little self motivation πŸ˜‚ #muscleup #hivenorthshore #hivevancouver #training #bouldering #motivation #happydance β€’
Thanks for zooming in on my try hard face πŸ“Ή@eric.sethna πŸ™„

Thanks for making me laugh for 23 years @eric.sethna πŸ€— #laughingatyou #bestbro #nationalsiblingsday

"Be brave, start cold" he said πŸ™„ πŸ˜‚Learned our lesson that it's a little too early for spring climbing at Planet X but optimism is always the best method and getting lost in the mountains looking for dry rock (even in knee deep snow and ice) is still one of my favourite activities.... hopefully next time it actually ends in some rock climbing though!!! 🀞🏽

Thank you everyone for all the kind birthday wishes yesterday. My heart is so full! This year has been more challenging, exciting and unpredictable than ever before and I am so thankful everyday for the people, places and experiences that have helped shape my perspective. β€’
I have no idea what this next year will hold but the fun is always in the mystery.... my heart and mind are open for the next adventure!!! β€’
πŸ“·@lauraszanto from our unforgettable trip on Robson this past summer

That moment when pain, exhaustion, desire and fun all collide into one big emotion! πŸ’₯
Thanks @alex_fricker for capturing the try hard at this years Bouldering National Championships

Slurping is in my DNA.... ready for a trip back to Tokyo asap @jinyaramenbar #jinyatokyo

Throwback to a week before Nationals when @freeyourmindandclimb and I grabbed a double send of techy "Soul Slinger" v9 in sunny California (video includes the classic sending happy dance) β€’
Bishop was not only soooo much fun but ended up being a huge mental confidence booster before the National champs the week after. Trips like this one always remind me why I truly love this sport and the places and community it introduces me to. It was @jmtay89 and I's first time to Bishop and we can't wait to go back for more! #rockclimbing #happydance #buttermilks #bishop #bouldering
