Perfect cracks! Here Forrest is exploring the amazing world of hand jamming, finger locks, toe jams, fists and other shenanigans. After several pitches of excellent climbing and a short rappel we were treated to another fun perfect finger crack. This sure is guiding at its finest. πŸ’ͺπŸŽ‰πŸ§—β€β™€οΈ -

This rad young lady (13 years old) absolutely crushed it today. We did an amazing long classic trad route. The weather came in hard on pitch 4 and she embraced the world of suffering while alpine climbing in style. Of course on the hike out the weather changed to perfect and who would believe we had been huddled together on a small ledge, 100s of feet up the face, a few hours earlier. This young lady showed true grit. πŸ’ͺπŸ§—β€β™€οΈπŸ˜Ž

Topping out on the spectacular β€œMelvins Wheel” at Lumpy Ridge must be one of the coolest experiences. This is definitely one of the best 5.8 multi-pitch climbs in the area. The climb continues to deliver until the end with many different climbing techniques required 😊πŸ’ͺπŸ§—β€β™€οΈ-

How many guides/camp-moms/chefs can you get in a shower???? 🀣🀣🀣 The First Descents week with @coloradomountainschool in Estes is going great and we are of course having loads of fun. Tomorrow we bring the entire team up to the top of one of the many amazing granite domes at Lumpy. -

Sometimes rappelling down can be somewhat wet.... but on this day it was intentional!!! Exploring crazy places sure make for fun guiding times. Looking forward to more desert adventures with this cool cat! -

The art of β€œhand stacking” in wide cracks seem somewhat perplexing until the basic concepts have been mastered. Here Jon is figuring it all out..... staying calm and relaxed is key of course 😎 Teaching the finer points of off-width climbing for @coloradomountainschool sure is fun!!! πŸ’ͺπŸ˜ŠπŸŽ‰πŸ§—β€β™€οΈ

Day one of Jon’s OW training was a success!! πŸ‘πŸ’ͺπŸŽ‰ Guiding at @coloradomountainschool brings us to many interesting places. Here I’m working at Vedauwoo, Wyoming, home of the most amazing off-width climbs anywhere! Truly the place to learn the art of ascending grueling wide cracks and learn to love them. β€οΈπŸ˜ŽπŸ§—β€β™€οΈ -
