Ski/race season starting early this year. @emsc_skiing USSA U14/16 coaches checking out conditions on opening day at #Loveland. 13,000 feet of vert skied in three hours. Ready to bring that fitness to race season.  Now off to climb and boulder the rest of the weekend.  Colorado life isn't terrible. #wegohard #skihardskioften #turnandburn #notaclimbingpicture #thosewillhappentomorrow #colorado  #mountainlife #skiing #winter #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #gopro #canon #canonusa #canon_official

Locking it in tight for the upper tension crux of "Valhalla" - V7, at Flagstaff Mountain. Managed to pull on this rig in perfect conditions, then Mother Nature decided it would be a good idea to dump six inches of snow.  #Colorado is freaking rad.  Off to the next adventure.

Congrats to this guy, @jsklutters, for taking down his long term project yesterday. It went in exciting style, cruising the opening crux and then flailing here in the upper as he missed the jug. Thankfully Jesse is well versed in Sci-Fi lore, and engaged the Vulcan Death Grip to be able to pull out the send!  Live long and prosper. #totalnerdlife #spockedit #vulcanscienceacademy #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #colorado #frontrange #flagstaffbouldering #adventure #adventurephotography #climbingphotography #travel #explore #wanderlust #tryhardandbleed #canon #canon_photos #canon_official

Tools of the trade.  Old and new. My great-grandfather was an accomplished Russian mountaineer in the 1920s and 30s.  And Alaskan explorer through the 1950s. I still have his old ascenders manufactured by @salewa. They sit proudly on my coffee table, probably because I havnt had the guts to try them yet. Maybe one day. In mean time, glad I can continue adventuring, climbing, and living a similar lifestyle to my great-grandfather. #keepitinthefamily #russiansarecrazy #myascendersarebetter #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbinghistory #mountaineering #photography #photoequipment #adventurephotography #adventure #travel #explore #wanderlust #climbingphotography #canon #teamcanon #canon_official

With it raining pretty much continuously for the past two weeks, the weather has been making it tricky to be grabbing on real pebbles. Our day at #WildBasin was cut short, barely after warming up, by more rain again. ๐Ÿ˜– However managed to capture @mspringer2, during all of the five minutes of sunlight, for his send of "Gangsters Paradise" - V7/8.  #coloradoissupposedtobesunny #beenlivinginafishbowl #gettingspoiled #crewofcrushers #tryhardandbleed #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #bouldering #colorado #frontrange #climbingphotography #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #wanderlust #explore #optoutside #backcountry #lasportiva #organicclimbing #canon #canon_official

Getting tall on the oh so fun and slappy warm up, "Slap Arete" at Guanella Pass, Colorado. These are probably some of the last remaining snowless days in the alpine. Which just means temps are great, friction is high, and when snow comes it'll just add to the adventure. #winteriscoming #moreadventurescoming #pinchingbricks #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #frontrange #guanellapass #colorado #adventure #adventurephotography #climbingphotography #travel #explore #wanderlust #mountainfitness #lasportiva #prana #petzl #backcountry #goatworthy #optoutside #canon #teamcanon #canon_photos #canon_official

Yup.  We're both just anxiously waiting for colder temps to settle in. Got plans in the making, and partially forgotten goals that are being brought back into focus. Thanks little floof for being one of my best friends, and reminding me that adventure is important. Even if you have to wait a bit. #doggo #shegetsme #floofsagainstdepression #biggestfloof #notaclimbingphoto #adventuredog #dogsofinstagram #siberianhusky #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #explore #wanderlust #excitinglife #backcountry #optoutside #nature #canon #teamcanon #canonusa #canon_official

Life should be lived as an adventure. A journey intended to be discovered, not known.  Sometimes it's glorious.  Other times it's occupied only by pain. People, events, and experiences present themselves at different times for different reasons.  And they also can walk out the door. Sometimes silent, angry, and hurt.  I've realized that for the past couple months, I havnt been living my life, for myself.  I originally came to Colorado to get a fresh start.  To grow and heal.  To be able to work on myself.  It's time to do that again. #notaclimbingphoto #findingthejoysinlife #youdowhatyoucanforthoseyoulove #trialandfailure #selflove #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #explore #wanderlust #boulder #bouldercolorado #backcountry #optoutside #canon #canonphotography #teamcanon #canonusa

This rig is getting more prevalent in my mind recently, as the end of alpine season is becoming visible down the timeline. "Tickfest" - V8/9 as captured by @goldiesdreadlocks.  After pulling all the moves, linking all but the final sloper, and punting off the top, I think it could go before the end of the season! #tryhardandbleed #crimpingrazors #ninjaturtleshredder #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #climbingphotography #bouldering #mtevans #travel #explore #wanderlust #adventure #adventurephotography #lasportiva #organicclimbing #petzlgram #colorado #canon #teamcanon #canonusa #canon_official

Thought it was going to be a solo fitness day, churning out miles and elevation up and down the #flatirons. Turns out I found this little buzzer ๐Ÿ during a brief rest moment.  It posed for the photo, then we both went back to work. #notaclimbingphoto #fuzzyfriend #busybee #buzzbuzzbuzz #beesarecool #fitnessday #mountainfitness #colorado #frontrange #boulder #trailrunning #travel #explore #wanderlust #adventure #adventurephotography #canon #teamcanon #canonusa #canon_official

This guy recently had a birthday. He's gone through some spectacular life changes, and continues to be an inspiration to many. Shout out to @jtan300, "Fuck the pain," and keep living your dream.  Photo from Summer 2015 as we prepared to do battle with "Venturi Effect" - 5.12+, on The Incredible Hulk.

Chase the sun in summer, and shade in winter? Or is it the other way around? Steph works her way through the baking sun and mega pinch blocks of "Killer Pillar" - 5.10b at Primo Wall in the always lovely #ClearCreekCanyon.

Everyone has different motivations and goals when it comes to climbing and the outdoors. Whether it's leading for the first time, exploring a new area, or sending a new grade, it's all a worthwhile progression. @goldiesdreadlocks sets her sights on the Grand Teton during #Eclipse2017. Work hard, stay motivated, but above all... have fun. #bigwallsbiggoals #tryhardandbleed #eyesontheprize #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #climbingphotography #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #explore #wanderlust #grandtetonnationalpark #backcountry #optoutside #goatworthy #strongwomen #girlswhocrush #girlswhoclimb #canon #canonusa #teamcanon #canon_official

The Moon slowly continued its journey across the Sun. And darkness fell across the Earth when there should have been light. Cold when there should have been warmth. Silence instead of noise. For two minutes there was nothing. A void. A void that felt like it consumed everything. And it was the most beautiful emptiness. #notaclimbingpost #thejourneywasasuccess #novoodoo #Eclipse2017 #wyoming #grandtetonnationalpark #nationalparks #mountains #mountainlife #westisbest #travel #explore #wanderlust #adventure #adventurephotography #excitinglife #backcountry #optoutside #aacgram #canon #canonusa #teamcanon #canon_official

Four years ago I got to see Teton Range for the first time. Summiting The Grand via The Petzoldt Ridge turned into a wicked adventure.  Stoked to head back again, this time for a different type of adventure. #Eclipse2017 with @goldiesdreadlocks!  Another road trip. Another adventure. Always looking forward to more.  #dontbeontopofnewmountainsinthedark #badhabit #saturdayshitshow #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #mountaineering #alpinism #adventure #adventurephotography #climbingphotography #travel #explore #wanderlust #aacgram #grandtetonnationalpark #backcountry #optoutside #wyoming #canon #canonusa #teamcanon #canon_official

Still getting used to that I've already been here for six months.  Seems like I was still working and living in Michigan last week. Time flys when you're having fun.  Especially when this is basically my back yard. Another quality day exploring the backcountry of #colorado. It's wildflower season at the Idaho Springs Reservoir.  #notaclimbingphoto #anythingoutsideiscool #distractedbynature #explore #travel #adventure #wanderlust #adventurephotography #alpine #aacgram #frontrange #mtevans #backcountry #goatworthy #optoutside #canonusa #teamcanon #canon_official

Adventure fitness day got a little more adventure-y than totally expected. The 25 mile, car-summit-car, trip up #mtevans involved harsh winds, lots of hail, and some pretty exciting thunder. Opted to turn back 300 vertical feet below the summit.  Managed to time it perfectly, and got back below tree line before the biggest of the storms hit, taking shelter under a rock formation.  Still had some excitement high up dealing with the periodic strong winds and hails, along with the 1000 feet of exposure. All and all a quality adventure fitness day.  #alldaylegday #mountainfitness #jellolegs #travel #adventure #explore #wanderlust #backpackermag #backcountry #goatworthy #optoutside #aacgram #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbingphotography #adventurephotography #colorado #gopro #canon #teamcanon #canonusa #canon_official

Toss it back a couple weeks to #bouldering at Mt. Evans, and throwing down hard moves with @andrea_ck on the little known "Tickfest." Maybe not the most endearing name, but it's a super quality line!
