It’s been great playing in American Fork on Hell classics with good buddies. It’s interesting for me to be part of a resurgence in the area. After almost 35yrs in the life, I’ve been witness to trends and fashions in our culture. And the Hell Cave has a distinguished place in our history as Thee Place for a few years in the early nineties. Young climbers today, their jaws drop when they’re reminded that it was normal to see 50 people in the cave on any given day between 1989-1993... half of them the best climbers in the world at the time... projecting routes... that was Hell’s hay day and they, along with other well traveled climbers made it an annual stop. In hindsight, if those days in Hell have one distinct effect on the sport, it was that all those climbers went back to their home turf inspired to carve out new spots that might have been overlooked for years... you might have heard of areas like Rifle and The Red River Gorge... Hell, our dank little limestone cave was like a 💡 in the collective consciousness of climbers who had a craving for development. It’s like the myth that The Velvet Underground sold only 30k of the “Banana” album but everyone who bought one started bands of their own. 
I’ve spent thousands of days in the place and solidified many of my best lifelong friendships there. Like this photo here, @tylerwillcutt is a new buddy of mine, belayed by my good old bud Russ Clune (the legend) whom I was so honored to meet and climb with back in the day. Anyway... it’s fun to revisit and climb some of these old testpiece routes and see how uniquely hard they were and still are. These relatively short, not so aesthetic looking routes have some of the most brutal sequences of tweaky, powerful moves of any acre of climbing on earth. It represented a moment in time when we thought hard climbing had to hurt 🤮. Like mosh pits. What were we thinking... 🙄🤔🤣 #climbing #russclune #hellcave #funnotfunds

Another happy customer. I just helped install a push-button adjustable @tensionclimbing board in @centralrockmanhattan . This thing is so cool... and it’s not just a woodie... IT’S AN ADJUSTABLE CLIMBING WALL THAT INCREASES VARIABILITY BY ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE.

Adjustability is the Xfactor. If you’re familiar with the Tension hold setup you know there’s >13k problems in the app. Multiply that number x2 (for left and right versions). Then, since the @grasshopper.industries board adjusts 50 degrees, let’s Multiply again by... let’s say 10x (in increments of 5 degrees), and you have, let’s calculate, that’s 260,000 route variations that can be shared and experienced around the world. And this is just scratching the surface. I’m as hyped about this project as any I’ve been involved with. Ever. 👊🏼 #thefutureisadjustable #homeclimbingwall #climbing #tensionboard

@cbaileyspeed wrestling tufas in #mallorca . My recent trip there was one of the best of my life. I made new friends, ate, drank, laughed, climbed and saw lifetimes of immaculate rock to develop and @chris_sharma futuristic deep water solos. I made photographs with a renewed excitement, thanks to the incredible new #GFX100 ... a camera in a class by itself. Thanks again @fujifilmx_us and for throwing a killer party last night too. 👊🏼 @jamisontravels #climbing

My friends and I, we go to where the rocks are... and sometimes your just like 😦. And then you remind yourself, look who’s talkin’. #climbing

Thundercling Podcast Episode 24, coming in hot @boonespeed (link in @thethundercling bio).
I’m proud of this. The guys (Dave and Fidi) got real with me and we covered a lot of ground. I’ve apparently made a good impression on them... my life in their eyes reads like a highlight reel. But from my side of it I never set out to make anything important. Only make it. Only do it. I guess after a few dozen years and some of the stuff getting noticed it’s pretty cool. I’m certainly proud of my body of work... but what I also need to mention here is that I’ve failed a lot. The glass could easily be half empty. Luckily I’ve been extremely fortunate to have amazingly supportive parents and I’ve also got the best fucking friends and network of anyone on earth. Nobody does anything alone and I appreciate all the collaboration and memories I share with my loved ones and homies... especially my running buddy collaborator @mikecall for all the support and criticism over the years. Without you dude, none of this would be known or relevant in any way. Thanks for everything. You too @cbaileyspeed and @suecspeed ❤️🙏🏼

My buddy Miguel Riera passed away yesterday from lung cancer. Miguel was a climber’s climber. One of those special people in the world who walks the walk... He started climbing over the water in Mallorca almost 30years ago, mostly alone, and coined the term Psicobloc (Spanish for “psycho bouldering”). He loved sharing his Mallorcan paradise with climbers. He was about 10yrs old when Franco’s rule of Spain came to and end and it was fascinating listening to him talk about that transition and what it was like for him as a kid. When we were in Mallorca just a few weeks ago we were supposed to hang, all of us... and just a couple days before we got there he’d gone to the doctor with chest pains. Then he was suddenly in icu and we were like ‘wtf!?!?’ And just like that Miguel is gone. Life happens and you just never know. Live your best life today as Miguel would’ve. Miguel, you will always be a legend and a true friend. We’ll seriously miss you buddy. 😔 #fuckcancer #miguelriera

Tropical storm. High winds. Perfect evening light. A few ND filters + >60sec exposure. Watercolor detail. Multi frame horizontal stitch. Mind-blowing at 10 feet high. @flavorpaper @kravitz_design

Where’s Chris? 😬 I didn’t shoot this with the intention of posting it on IG. It’s intended to be large, viewed from across a room as an abstract seawall in B&W. From close up you can see @chris_sharma with @mikecall watching from below. Chris pitched from a few feet higher. Check the second frame for a detailed crop and the holds Chris is working with at >50 feet. Shot with Fuji GFX 100 with 32-64 (50mm) F8 @320 200iso. #fujigfx100 #climbing #mallorca

Another happy customer @centralrockcambridge just put in an Electric Adjustable Climbing Wall with @tensionclimbing holds. Our walls have been designed by climbers for climbers. They’re sturdy af, easy to use and low maintenance. Within 2 minutes of this thing being up the guys were like 🤯 “Okay we get it, this changes everything!!”. Indeed, there’s no going back. 12x12s and Ninjas round out our line currently. Mix n match widths... install them side by side... fit them anywhere... Already the sky’s the limit. And this is just the beginning...

“In Fontainebleau, success is not gauged by sending, but by understanding. Do you understand?” Back with @pusherholds (circa Y2K) my friends and I were inventing something (like a bouldering culture) that didn’t really exist yet. And we needed photographs and carful words to illustrate it. My goal then, as it remains today is to tap into the essence of an idea and stay committed to it through thoughtful, timeless execution. In hindsight, with Pusher, I think we succeeded.

Now I’m at it again with @grasshopper.industries ... trying to share a vision of what climbing and training can look like in homes, competitions, climbing gyms, institutions ... the sky’s the limit when you have an adjustable wall ... a concept I truly believe in just like I did about bouldering culture and innovative plastic twenty years ago. Plus I have a few good friends helping, many of the same I’ve relied on through the years...🙏🏼 And now, to bring it full circle, we/Grasshopper are busy installing adjustable climbing walls at the new Pusher HQ in SLC. This is about to get real good, so stay tuned...👊🏼 #pusherholds 🖐🏼 #climbing
