Tight fingers, scummy feet, and tapping into more power than you’d expect to use. “Breshears Crack” - V3/5.11+R could possibly be one of the most aesthetically pleasing lines at The Darkside Boulders in Morrison, CO. A highball, perfect splitter crack, up a stand alone blank face, with lots of exposure. Nothing but smiles once you figure ‘er out. #wheredthefeetgo #allthefingerlocks #norackneeded #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #climbingphotography #frontrange #colorado #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #getoutside #wanderlust #backcountry #goatworthy #lasportiva #canon_usa #canon_photos #canon_official

Some days just aren’t ideal. Projects don’t get sent.  Maybe race day doesn’t go as hoped. You get run down and sick.  Fitness seems to be dropping.  Work isn’t as fulfilling as usual. Everyone has those days.  Or weeks. Or months.  Doesn’t matter though, because progress isn’t linear.  Down moments are times to rediscover focus, passion, and intensity for your goals.  Change what you have to, just keep going.  At least that’s my plan right now.  #dumbsappyinspirationalpost #beingsicksucks #gotthingstodo #motivation #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #portraitphotography #portraitphotography #canonusa #canon_photos #canon_official

Nuking snow, plus good touring access, equals quality adventure pup time.  If only I could tolerate the ultra sub-zero temps as casually as she does.  But then I kinda win on the downhill leg.  So it’s win-win for both of us.  #shekillsmeontheuphill #somuchpower #adventurefloof #bouncebouncebounce #skimountaineering #bigmountainskiing #earnyourturns #skinupskidown #skiing #winter #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #excitinglife #getoutside #backcountry #backcountryskiing #goatworthy #siberianhusky #canonusa #canon_photos #canon_official

Colorado finally decided that winter is actually a cold weather season. With snow. And ice. And wind. Which is making local pebble wrestling tricky. Pebbles aren’t going anywhere though. Here @jsklutters figures out the opening moves in “Squirming Coil” - V6, Darkside Boulders above Morrison.  Maybe it’s time to climb in the sun. #wheredidthewarmthgo #insertglobalwarmingjokehere #justmeansmoreskiing #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #climbingphotography #frontrange #colorado #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #excitinglife #getoutside #backcountry #goatworthy #organicclimbing #canonusa #canon_photos #canon_official

2017 has been the year of change. Starting with packing up life and moving across the country from Michigan to Colorado. Starting a new job, progressing deeper into a career, and discovering an area that’s starting to feel like a true home. Experiencing new friendships, and watching old friendships develop stronger bonds. Falling in love, and then losing that dear friend. Finding new strengths following injuries. Pushing new grades. Learning to adapt better after those pains, and rediscovering climbing, skiing, and mountaineering in a way that’s been greatly needed. 2017 has been a big year of changes.  Thank you everyone who’ve been apart of those changes. Let’s see what adventures 2018 brings.  #biglifechanges #thankyouforthememories #pushingforward #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #climbingphotography #backcountry #getoutside #skiing #bigmountainskiing #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #excitinglife #wanderlust #colorado #frontrange #organicclimbing #lasportiva #canonusa #canon_photos #canon_official

Finding limits, and then discovering that maybe they weren’t limits after all is awesome. I’ve never really felt I was ready to try bouldering double digits. I’m definitely not a double digit boulderer.  But there had to be a first time, and that comes by pushing past your limits. “Arrowhead Arete” - V10 is definitely the hardest problem I’ve ever worked. And at first every move felt impossible. But then individual moves started clicking, and then linking multiple moves started flowing. And while it’s not ready to send, maybe now I’m realizing double digits isn’t that far off. #breakyourlimits #effthecomfortzone #tryhardandbleed #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #climbingphotography #colorado #frontrange #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #excitinglife #getoutside #lasportiva #fitness #canon_photos #canonusa #canon_official

Sometimes ripped skin and blood is just accepted when your trying to send a project.  Or in this case, fall off the project over and over.  I seem to be getting pretty good at not sending recently.  Oh well. Climbing is still pretty dope.  #tryhardandbleed #feltthatone #iscrubbedtheholdsafter #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #bouldering #rockclimbing #climbing #climbingphotography #frontrange #colorado #boulder #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #excitinglife #getoutside #canonusa #canon_photos #canon_official

There were days I thought I might never fully walk again, much less be able to climb and train. After suffering a serious spinal cord/vertebral injury, and undergoing surgery and rehab, I’m just happy I can climb again. I’ve permanently lost range of motion in my back and one of my legs, and it’s starting to become an understanding that there are some moves, no matter how hard I train, I may never be able to move my body in the motions I need. “Double Arete” - V6 at The Darkside Boulders is one of those problems. But that’s alright. There’s still plenty of rock to climb, and the syke is still sky high.  #breakingyourbackisapain #highlydontrecommend #keepyourstufftogether #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #climbingphotography #bouldering #colorado #frontrange #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #getoutside #backcountry #canon_photos #canonusa #canon_official

Trying hard, high off the deck. @jsklutters gets it done on the immaculate highball finger crack of “Breshears Crack” - V3/5.11+ at The Darkside Boulders in Morrison, CO. Tips, ring-locks, sidepulls, and pasty feet makes this 4-star line an exciting ride to the top. #tryhardface #littlefingers #lockitdown #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #frontrange #colorado #climbingphotography #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #excitinglife #getoutside #backcountry #goatworthy #canonusa #canon_photos #canon_official

I got booted off my project, again. But that just meant I got to spend more time behind my camera.  Awesome to watch local young-gun Anna power through the nerves and top out this rad V4 on Flagstaff Mountain right outside of Boulder.  Local bouldering ain’t terrible.  #itsahardlife #boulderboulderingscene #gettingspoiled #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #climbingphotography #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #girlswhoclimb #womenwhocrush #optoutside #backcountry #flashfoxy #goatworthy #canonusa #canon_photos #canon_official

I seem to always be attracted to harsh and severe weather.  After skinning up 2000’ and a short solo climb, standing on the summit of my old home hill is quite the feeling.  The 50mph winds, freezing temperatures, and nuking snow was another kind of feeling.  But then skiing untracked, mid-thigh deep, blower powder all the way down makes all the effort worth it.  Many feelings. All happy. #iusedaselfiestick #iknowimlame #stillworthit #myhandfrozetakingthis #skitheeast #eastcoastskiing #skimountaineering #backcountryskiing #earnyourturns #skiing #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbing #adventure #adventurephotography #explore #travel #travelphotography #getoutside #backcountry #winter #gopro #goprophotography

Redeye flights. Layovers. Early morning connections.  Traveling through the night, on no sleep, after working 60 hours. It’s all worth it though.  Life should be lived as one giant adventure and journey.  Full of travel, exploration, and love.  Glad I’m pursuing another adventure. #sappypost #excitinglife #neverstopmoving #whatissleep #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #adventureisoutthere #livinginairports #canon #teamcanon #canonusa #canon_official

Little nostalgia time. It’s been a full year now since I’ve left my “home crag” in the #RRG. Last year this time was possible the best memories I’ve made there.  Was a great send off from the gorge.  Late night cooking delicious food in a fancy camper, drinking wine and whiskey, laughing with long time friends, and making new ones.  And of course crushing pockets and pinches on some of the best sandstone in the country, like “Cell Block Six” - 5.12c. Thank you all for last days in the #RedRiverGorge. @bre_deming @d_a_lebaron @coachascanio. Looking forward to seeing you all again. New adventures. New stories. #sappypost #crewofcrushers #cheersfriends #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #sportclimbing #climbingphotography #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #lasportiva #blackdiamondequipment #canonusa #teamcanon #canon_official

The goal as I started growing up, was to eventually live somewhere that I can climb, ski, and love work, all at the same time. This past weekend just helped confirm that I made the right decision.

Currently going through my work cycle for the week, but the only thing on my mind is wanting to go grab these cruddy sharp grips on “Cryptic Magician” - V7/8. Just a few more days of work, waiting for the snow to melt, then hopefully Friday will be send day!

Battling though underclings, compressions, and some of the sharpest pebbles in town, @mspringer2 shows off his victory wounds after taking down the aptly named “Cryptic Magician” - V7/8.
