Been thinking back to the desert a lot recently. It's hard not to when you're in the middle of the torrent that's absorbing the #pnw right now!
Psyched for the next time I find myself watching the last light in this location - Castle Valley.
I got to test out the Butroa Acros this weekend in #leavenworth and I must say I really liked them, the toe had really good bite and the heal never let me down and seems to fit my foot quit nice.This is a pic of "The Hole V6"
Dancing like shadows on the wall.
The first time I got in maxim recently I suddenly felt very lost after having done the starting moves years ago. Turns out a hold had broke, making my original beta useless. So I had to find a work around and eventually managed a tricky, shouldery move off a balanced right foot which is a pretty cool move in it's own right. Still liked the original more powerful move though 😥
If Boulder Denim had a third muskateer, it would likely be Gav. Since our earliest demos, Gavin has helped us spread BD love. Most recently, at our Denim on Denim Canadian Tuxedo going away party, he was essential to making it our most successful demo EVER. Gavin's presence in Vancouver's climbing community is a big as his heart and ape index. Look out for @gavinj00 and @jcrenosa doing demos this fall & winter in the Vancouver area. Thanks for everything you do!
"Tia Marie"...such a beautiful boulder in an epic setting deserves a name like that. Gorgeous things warrant great titles. Hopefully my current journey to an unknown and wild land will give me the opportunity to christen lines with creative words and a wee bit of skin 😼 stay tuned 😉

@shannonheitzman caught me scoping out the lines on this rock (I’m just a speck standing in the sunlight). I’ve got to get up here and climb one day, or ten. It was absolutely gorgeous with the leaves changing down in the valley.
We agree, parenting is rad! There’s not much better then seeing your kids pushing themselves and succeed! Tell your little one we said nice work! @sykarri
Don’t forget to tag #ParentsThatRock on your family climbing adventures for your chance to be featured! “Climbing with my favorite gal. My sweet Pi! We attempted this multi (3) pitch earlier in the year...she got spooked on the second pitch so we didn’t complete the climb. So it was extra exciting to watch her crush all three pitches today. We scuffed knees, observed bugs and flowers, stroked some lambs ear, and played a riveting game of ‘iSpy’ on the way up. Parenting is rad.”
In the words of @mike_komai, "Just do it. You're not going to die..." (😆). Thanks for the motivation, I'm able to power through cruxes and make big moves like this one. See you soon! ❤🙋♀️ 🇯🇵
It ain't called Ball Scratcher (5.12a) for no reason... Scott hoping to escape unscathed on this route at Motherlode. 📷 @dconnole8 ☆ Dylan is out here for the season and going to share some rad pics with us! Reach out and/or tag @bestofthered if you'd like to see your shots featured also. ☆
Coming soon... A short film about feelings and senses.

#tbt Three years ago my buddy and I climbed Polar Circus. It lived up to everything we heard. Fantastic climbing and a lot of it! Sadly the pencil wasn’t in -something to look forward to! Hope to get back on this big rig this season.
