@polartecfabric & @thule teamed up to do a Summit for Someone climb of the Franconia Ridge in New Hampshire.
The teams from the two companies raised $30,000 for the Big City Mountaineers youth programs while out on this memorable adventure. #getoutdogood .

#metoo me too me too. I don't usually pour a bunch of personal stuff on you guys but I am going to right now:
People often ask me if I feel safe being a girl living alone in a bus. I do feel safe (the giant wolf probably helps), but the truth is "safe" is relative for me... my experience as a woman hasn't been safe, it been nowhere near safe. I'm not afraid of living alone in the woods or sleeping on the side of the highway or being single (even forever) because I have experienced an incredibly scary partner. Sometimes what's at home is more terrifying than the unknown. And I have learned that what doesn't kill you doesn't necessarily make you stronger--some things are just incredibly damaging and it's okay to admit that... here's to hoping that some day things will be different ✊🏽
I've visited Yosemite three times in 8 months. I rarely revisit a place (so many beautiful destinations in this world!). Yosemite is just that special. And showing B it for the first time made this trip that much sweeter.
The mountains are my bones The rivers my veins
The forests are my thoughts
And the stars are my dreams
The ocean is my heart
It’s pounding is my pulse
The songs of the earth write
The music of my soul
I get nervous repeating boulders at my limit and recently I've been a little extra hard on myself, cause you know humidity, school, and working two jobs aren't good enough excuses. So thanks @shainasavoy for capturing my repeat send of a v4/5 last night, with moves I don't normally feel confident on.
It’s #traveltuesday ! Heading back to my home in the beautiful PNW. “You will never be completely home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.” Sad to leave loved ones but excited to get back to the state that has held my heart since I was a little girl and all the people, new and old, that live there. #washingtonbound
"Il grado non conta", diciamo, lo pensiamo, ne siamo convinti, ma va precisato.
Il grado conta a livello personale, l'arrampicata è superare se stessi e voler accrescere il proprio grado fa parte di questa sfida con il proprio corpo e la propria mente.
Il grado non conta ai fini del misurare la passione per l'arrampicata.
Il grado non conta se viene utilizzato al fine di voler creare una gerarchia del più forte.
L'arrampicata non è competitività con gli altri, ma con se stessi, se tu fai un grado, a me non stai togliendo niente; quindi il tuo grado, per me, non conta.
I’m no stranger to depression and anxiety. When they do decide to pay an extended visit, there are two things guaranteed to quiet my mind for at least a few minutes, singing at the top of my lungs with the windows down and climbing.
The #coloradoATHON has begun!
@elexplore, @ben_duke_media and @rebeccaboozan are traversing Colorado by bike, foot and boat to raise $10,000 for Big City Mountaineers.

Scott and I can't catch a break as of lately. Broken car to unexpected bills. And all it seems like I can do is just deep breath through it all. Probably not the best coping strategy, but it has yet to fail me..
Last night a woman was talking about how she didn’t understand why she cared so much about how others lived their life....as if she always felt she knew what was better for them, critiquing how they were living as it was unacceptable in her eyes.
Our ego is fierce and wants to bring us down.
I realize these days it’s best to stay within my own “hula hoop”. It’s best to only focus on what I am control - which is my thoughts and my actions and stay out of others business. In the world of social media, it’s a silly world where I get to watch you on Facebook yet never see you in real life. Hard to see what’s real these days, but I know I find a lot more peace by giving no extra attention then I need to.
Find the minimalism & balance even within the technology at your fingertips.
Hope your having a good Monday. I'm having one of those second cup of coffee Mondays! ☕️☕️ But lots of happy, exciting and motivating things happening today and the week ahead...perhaps I'll just have another cup and tackle the rest of today 👊😉☕️ #allthecoffee#twocupmonday#mondaymotivation#trailrunning#run#orsheadventures @purcellmountainlodge @mountainexposure @ospreypacks 📸@beardofbeez

I feel like reminders like this are important to me and I'm sure many women. Sometimes I feel like I know my potential but don't take the steps to live up to it. Being the best version of yourself takes a lot of effort and isn't always an easy journey. As I start a new week, I will need to remember to not get swept away in the business and focus on a few things that will help me grow. Any goals you're working towards this week you'd like to share? Tag us so we can share and inspire others!
