Another awesome day in the books down at Main Elk yesterday. It felt really good to hang the draws on everything and start to push myself a little harder again. I even (definitely not smoothly lol) put up my first 11 lead of the season. So grateful for my awesome climbing partner @deriederynck who has pushed me to grow so much in this last year. Wishing him all the best on the next chapter of his life in the Coast Guard! ✨
Red Rock Rendez Vous was a blast! We had a fun solid crew of athletes, sponsors, and attendees. It was great to see everyone there. The photo clinic was a success and one talented participant, Megan Avilla, snapped this shot of me Baseboy Direct.
!Life is good! This was our mantra of our climbing trip in #redrivergorge #kentucky . Three #Canadian crushers stoked on life to be climbing in warm sunshine so early in the season. We were buzzing the entire time with full powered stoke and made sure it rippled outwards to our new American friends by leaving a empowering positive impression. What you put out always comes back! such as free access to our climbing area just for how amped up we were every morning to be alive healthy and free :) A little shot of Zedrick and I packing some gear prior to leaving. Thanks to my homies @mikereaume7070 and @sbutnari for the best start of the season. What's next boys?
Today we made our way into the Khumbu Valley. A predawn flight delivered us from Kathmandu to Lukla, and 3 hours to trekking completed the journey to our tea house in Phakding. Just like that we snapped out of the chaos of Kathmandu and softly landed in the tranquility of high mountain valleys. The mustard flowers and lilies are in bloom, the rivers are beginning to swell in the spring melt, and then there are scenes like this one: A teacher and her pupil reviewing an English lesson outside a home along the trekking route. #stayinschool #khumbuvalley #nepal #everest2017 #headintheclouds
