Quite possibly the sickest trad pitch I've ever climbed and established. I went back last week to re-work the crux pitch on Pama Punku. Its still burly! These photos were taken by @gabrielmannpro on a pose down mission a while back in an attempt to photo document a beautiful climb in a unique part of Yosemite. I thought it would feel easier being in shape and all, but nope. It was still nails from start to finish.
LASER SPEED LIGHT! My New Personal Screw!
While in Bozeman, I got hooked up with this Ultra-light ice Screw From Petzl!
This ice screw reduces every possible gram of weight for ice climbing. The aluminum tube, combined with a steel drill, makes the screw lighter but still allows for optimal bite on ice. The integrated folding crank gives you an ergonomic lever, making it easier and faster to screw in.

The Huge Smile and Gregarious Laugh of @a_horness Caught Brilliantly by @pcorrette ! This is the same face he has after a seven mile cross country death march.... and he will still be laughing! I love the fact that climbing brings you in contact with such strong diverse personalities... strong men and women trying to better themselves by wrestling rock and ice!
Like a sick child a snow day, I’ve been watching others play outside my window while I wallowed in sorrow. Even though I knew I shouldn’t do it I just couldn’t resist the temptation-that urge which drives me took over. Just like that kid who played on the swings for too long, I too was exhausted and hosted a grin stretching from ear to ear. Not only was this the first time I really climbed in months, but also the first route I established.

Won this Sweet Little NIAD knife from @hansflorine and @crkt_knives !! Designed by Hans as the Perfect Accessory to Your Climbing Harness. Can you think of a time when you could have used a good knife on a climb?! Thanks Hans for the Hook!
