Wowieee! Another one from the Bugs 🐛!! A rare sighting of me actually climbing, since usually I'm behind the lens. For scale reference notice the two tiny ant sized people walking across the glacier at the top of the frame. Thanks for the shot 📷 @ari_schneider ❗️

I've been doing a lot of these in physical therapy, wide grip pull-ups. Quality > quantity; my form needs further work. My wrist still can't sustain my full body weight, so a resistance band is helpful. I few months ago I couldn't even do a regular grip half pull-up due to the pain! The past few weeks I've been feeling surprised 😳 and like I've achieved progress, I can climb for a full 5.fun session in the gym on juggy holds (I couldn't climb more than two minutes at time in March, or not at all) and even have tried pulling on smaller holds like crimps, with some success if they don't require a super intense or over-pronating grip!
.
I definitely still have a long way to go to get back to where I was pre-injury, but I am feeling stronger and with better technique than before-due to what I think is heightened body awareness to prevent pain or further re-injury. It's a slow process, and a frustrating one, but motivating to see some improvements! Now I just have to keep doing the exercises, strengthening my muscles and for the first time ever, I'm getting psyched for gym climbing over outdoor climbing!

I call this The Continuous-Permanent-Indefinite Rehab Era 😆💪🏽

Gawd. Coming back to real life after a relaxing break is so hard! Not meeting a high number of amazing people in a ridiculous short time is bizarre. Going to the same building, same desk and chair every single morning to attempt to make an impact in the world through your work is a little monotonous. Even driving again feels weird. I didn't have a car in Squamish so I had to walk everywhere or hitchhike, and because I felt I worked to get myself places, felt like I earned it, it was oddly satisfying to live like that, in such a simple way.

Here are a few more shots of my time in British Columbia, from the Bugaboos to Squamish! Thanks again to everyone who made this time so wonderful!

Creativity is not an ever flowing force for me, unfortunately. Sometimes when I'm in a rut, it's really hard to get out of it, but it could be a small thing, such as something I see in a tv show, or something someone says in passing, that makes me think outside the box again.
.
And sometimes you just look at a beautiful image and you become inspired, for whatever reason.

In lieu of the impressive natural event taking place next week, the total solar eclipse, this one is from good friend Katie Porter, talented painter and expert in computational protein modeling. Check out more of her work on her profile!

Still reflecting on this trip... check out my latest blog post about my experience in The Bugaboos! Link in bio ☝️!

I took this shot from the B-S col as a group of climbers started their journey across the glacier to climb Pigeon Spire. Humans are so small.

In just two weeks, I feel like I grew more than I have in months combined. My experience in Squamish gave me so much #perspective about life and my career, brought me together with so many amazing people from all walks of life, and allowed me to gain and expand on important skills, especially in mental training for climbing, photography, and adapting to being out of my comfort zone physically and in social situations.
.
I got the chance to work with some very inspiring folks, like photographer Paul Bride and Arcteryx athlete Jesse Huey during a photo clinic for the Arcteryx Climbing Academy. Thanks for sharing your knowledge! Now I have this momentum to apply this knowledge to some cool photography projects on the east coast. Here's a shot of @jessehuey on a classic Squamish climb. Can you name it?

Glaciers and granite seas: taking it all in. Is this place even real?

A few of the lessons learned: 1) the #alpine can be unforgiving and scary 2) quality sleep is a non-existent luxury 3) still worth the 10+hour days for being in such a #breathtaking place. Stay tuned for a #blog post about my experience coming up soon!

@ari_schneider thanks for teaching me the ropes and being patient with me.

And we made it to the top! A little farewell fun before @yayjesse_g starts his adventure in the Southern Hemisphere! Your 2nd multipitch? Took us all day but it was one of the most amazing days I've ever had! Cathedral never disappoints with the quality crack climbs! Feels good to be able to climb with almost no pain after months of recovery, feel challenged and excited with great company 💯🥂

I am ready! Can't wait to embark on this solo mission, #photograph cool people and places and hangout with a few friends for part of it. I've never been to the Great White North and I'm so #psyched to see what everyone keeps talking about!

Also just relaunched my website so go check it out! Thanks to everyone who has given me so much #support for my work! Link in bio☝️ (views better on desktop for some reason) !!

The route has basically no breaks. There's a one hand microsecond shake and chalk up, which some may call a break, but it really isn't. Pure fitness and endurance is what it takes to send this route. Seems like more people are getting on it these days, and it's cool to see the dedication and commitment; some have spent years working it, others a few days. Definitely a test piece that is hard for the grade and not for the faint of heart. I have to say it's also probably one of the most aesthetic sport climbs I have photographed.
.
Here @yayjesse_g eyes his next move to reach a precarious clip after making quick work of the first half of the climb.
