Happy 🌎🌍🌏 day! I cannot articulate how much joy I get from being outside surrounded by natural beauty. Exploring new landscapes with @everascending is the most rewarding of activities. I hope we learn to treat our planet better before the damage cannot be undone. 🙏🏼

When it’s 🔥🔥🔥outside and @everascending decides it’s a good time to head to the most compression of compression blocs at Moore’s 🤔 (he came pretty damn close to putting it down 🙃). Also, Becca (who has no social media presence to speak of BC she’s as low key as they come), made moves and links that lead me to believe she too will be standing on top of this beauty soon enough 💪🏼 I’m continuously inspired by the try hard that surrounds me.

What matters most is how well you walk through the fire 🔥 ~ Charles Bukowski

Happy Friday! Stoked for at least one dry day in the forecast this weekend 🙌🏼 Hoping to make it back to this bad boy tomorrow 🤞🏻

This clip is an accurate depiction of what happens 99% of the time I’m rock grabbing 😎

Farewell for now southern “climbing season” 👋🏼 You started off bitterly, bone chillingly cold, and were comprised of mostly 💯%💦☔️💦☔️💦☔️💩

Bring on those long summer nights 🌌, Harkers Island boating adventures, Linville Gorge filled weekends and time spent exploring the CO alpine with all our favorite faces💙

Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. ~ John Muir

No matter what anyone says, just show up and do the work. If they praise you, show up and do the work. If they criticize you, show up and do the work. If no one even notices you, just show up and do the work. Just keep showing up, doing the work, and leading the way. Lead with passion. Fuel up with optimism. Have faith. Power up with love. Maintain hope. Be stubborn. Fight the good fight. Refuse to give up. Ignore the critics. Believe in the impossible. Show up. Do the work. You’ll be glad you did. True grit leads to true success. ~ Jon Gordon 🙌🏼

I’ve had my head down, nose to the grindstone for the past quarter working two jobs as a Customer Success Manager and an Account Executive at my company. Needless to say, climbing has needed to take a backseat. But that does mean I don’t miss it every goddamn day. Work hard. Play harder! I take a lot of pride in being diverse in what I’m dedicated to and while I’ve had to spend much less time outside than I’d like to, this will hopefully lay the foundations for much more time for that in the future 💙

Cheers to the end of Q1 and working hard for whatever it is that you’re passionate about 🍻🥂🍾

wanderlust :
An deep uncontrollable desire to hit the road and travel, by whatever means desired, to explore and enjoy the world.

So many hidden gems up in the high country 💎 Stoked to have checked out new rock and spent time with lovely people this past weekend. Didn’t make it to the line pictured here until the end of a long day after trying hard on blocs way above my pay grade. Excited for when we make it back so I can wrap this one up ☝️

To the man who inspires me to live a life that embraces experiences and not possessions, who places adventure and time spent outside on the highest tier of priorities, who makes me want to be better and do better everyday, Happy Birthday, Owen. All my love to you, today and always 💙

The extra hour of light yesterday yielded slightly cooler temps and @everascending took advantage with his send of Love Johnson. Finding less crimp intensive lines for the time being while his right middle finger heals up. 💙 Lots of rain overnight last night so now we’re waiting for the rocks to dry a bit before heading out in search of dry lines this morning 🤞🏻☀️
