Señorita Woblíta (Wob-Lee-tah) 12a. Chris and I spent free time over this last week scouting, bolting and cleaning this line. This route was our baby, and we gave it tender love and care. It’s equipped with stainless steel climbtech hangers and 1/2inch expansion bolts rated at 24 kilonewtons of strength for each bolt! It climbs a very techy but well protected face, with just enough holds to get you through the crux section. Easier climbing leads to three bolts of nonstop slopey shallow pocket pulling interrupted briefly with a mini-handlebar finger bucket to get a brief shake before more shallow pocket-pulling to a mono and pinch for comfy clip. Get it back to tech your way up one more bolt to a thank-goodness jug that allows you pull into a hueco to and take it to the stainless steel anchors on easier climbing to the top. More specific info on the location will be released once we get the final bolt into the top portion of the climb. (It is currently climbable if you are not afraid of a little runout on easier terrain haha). So exciting to put my drill to use and get my First First ascent!!! Can’t wait to get friends on this route and see what people think!!!! Thank you for everyone that helped make this happen!
The beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park 😍
From @ofallnationsphotography One thing I have really loved about being back in the states is the variety of outdoor adventures available! This week I have been climbing in the desert, skiing in the mountains, and hiking the plains. Now I just have to sit down and edit all these photos!

The cold is here in Chattanooga so my mind is wandering to warmer days climbing. It should be really nice coming up in a couple days but for now I’m thinking about climbing in the winter sun in Vegas. @marsenault1 throwing down the hammer on Keep Your Powder Dry (12b) in Red Rock.
Adam (@atrippster) topping out Dime Crack (v4) at Rumbling Bald. If this one feels hard for you, know that you’re not alone. Afterward, Adam admitted that if he were to give up on harder objectives every time he struggled through Dime Crack while trying to warm up, he’d never send anything new. Adam went on to tick Full Contact (v8) and gave Homewrecker (v10) several honest attempts later that day.
SUMMIT SELFIE ON FHE TOP OF RAINBOW 🌈 WALL!!!
I’m pretty excited about this one. Walked in and out in the dark, climbed some very epic pitches, did some hard moves on gear 🤨 then bolts then gear....and topped out right as the sun was setting! Original route you have my 💗
#refugiojoserivas#volcancotopaxi#cotopaxi#cotopaxiecuador#escalar#snow#nieve#ecuador#travel#viajes - nov 2013.
Llegar hasta el Refugio Jose Rivas a 4860 mts sobre el nivel del mar se puede escuchar extremo, pero realmente es una caminata fácil ascendiendo la montaña del Cotopaxi desde su estacionamiento ubicado mil metros más abajo.
Es un camino relativamente fácil y en algún momento encontramos nieve del glaciar.
Lo extremo es la altura y el frío. Hay que ir preparado con zapatos para la nieve y a subir la montaña. Uno se tarda una hora en subir pero al llegar al Refugio uno tiene la sensación de haber subido la montaña completa.
En el refugio hay comida, café caliente y baños.
Desde el refugio salen muy de madrugada todos los que quieren escalar hasta la cima del glaciar. Eso si es más extremo!
Today i have made a great progress in this old first ascent project💪 for the First time i stickt this Move from the sitstart💪👍🏻 crazy weather❄️🌞☔️🌲 please more cold days❄️❄️❄️ @dmm_wales @lasportivagram @climbonproducts @goodgripinfo

A hora é agora!
De cada um escalar a própria montanha, de sair do rascunho e fazer.
De olho na realidade, com vigor e concentração.
Tenacidade, objetividade, incansável, lidando com adversidades e seguindo em frente é a energia do caprica!
Porém não esqueça de dar uma olhada nas teimosias, nos apegos que podem dificultar e atrasar o caminho.
Deixe seus "sacos de areia" para trás, crie leveza e flexibilidade.
"Bora trabaiá!" #trabalho#flexibilidade#fazer#rascunho#escalar
