Matt and Jen cruising around on some via-ferrata in the jaw dropping gorge of Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, France.

Climbing in Seynes France
.
Approaching this sector, I didn't know what to expect. Charlotte just told me "there are a lot of tufas here for you Josh" and I followed blindly up the sunny hill side to the base of the beast. Holds I've dreamt about, colors and style that I have never seen - "Woah, this is insane gurrrl!"
.
Charlotte and I ticked off one of France's most classic 8a+/13c's called "Dinosaure". (Pictured here midway up). A wild 15 meter tufa that looks like a t-Rex spinal cord. Kneebars. Pinching. Pump.
.
Psyched about climbing ropes with my lady as I mend this funky finger problem before the next WC!🤞

Completing "The Big 5" in a day is a classic and freekin' hard challenge Fontainebleau offers. (Three 7C's, 7C+ & 8A each with a different style or trick). I've always found these lines amazing, deceivingly hard and the area set up perfectly for climbing. I completed only two the other day - Tristesse and Fourmis Rouge, linking them all in one day would be one hell of a day! Maybe next time - maybe not.

Hot (but beautiful) weather rolled into Bleau a week ago, postponing our battle with the Island. So we just had to run around like knuckleheads and climb classic after classic. The trip is over now but holy tartare that was a fun time with a wild crew!

Current Project // The Big Island lyfe 📷 @jonglassberg .
We are making bigger links, staying later into the night, laughing and complaining about temps and freaking out each time we find some subtle beta that puts us one step closer to the top. It's the hardest line we've ever tried with the most physical demanding set of moves in a row that I've put my fat fingers on! Stoked!!!! .

In preparation for #fontainebleau next week, I've been getting outside on some southern France sandstone - a beautiful place called Lodève. Here is local strong boi Vincent Chavot on an area classic yesterday. 💎

Wet Boulders = Scenic Roads. 🇫🇷

I've competed on @dimension_volumes at Canadian Nationals, Toronto IFSC World Cup, US Bouldering Nationals and recently had the chance to set with them during US Youth Bouldering Nationals. I'm pretty damn happy to now be an ambassador for this company! They have so much STEEZ and Sexiness you could hang them as art on your living room walls (and then climb in your living room). 💯👍🇨🇦

Central Ma or popular climbing zone? I'll let you decide. .
This line is tall, slightly anti-slanty with solid rock and splitter crimps. A huge dead-point move (pictured here) is the gate keeper to the promise land. Central Ma? No way...
.
The first ascent of "Monson Matriarch" (V10) is awaiting a second. @larsony95 with the spot and support, love ya bro, thanks!
Video coming soon!

My bro Zachy (@larsony95) tickin off a classic called "Big Lebowski" (V9) in Death Canyon, Tetons. If you send this line, the crew is obligated to buy you a big girl drink called - The Big Lebowski (a White Russian milkshake) down in Jackson Hole at #libertyburgerjh! .
