These are some shots taken on the desert road trip I took last week. The trip was ten days long and we sampled different types of climbing. Long, short, winggate, solidified mud, exposed calcite, scary basalt. We climbed trad, sport and even bouldered. Some times it was very hot and other times it was very cold. We slept in the dirt, the back of vans and fancy hotel rooms. At times things got very chaotic but at other times it was calm and silent as I stared off into the vast openness. The trip wasn’t really about projecting and sending hard. It was more about getting variety in a relatively short amount of time. I hadn’t taken a trip like this in a really long time and it was actually a very refreshing experience. I’m teaming up with @gramicci_climb to make a short film about the trip.

I’ve been on an epic road trip for the past week with some good friends. We’ve been raging in the desert, and climbing on beautiful limestone and sandstone. This is a screen grab taken by the talented @samuelcrossley of me climbing the Ivory Tower on Castleton Tower. The sandstone on this route is plastered with crazy white calcite that makes for a very unique style of climbing. On top of that it follows a super exposed arete for four pitches. We woke up pre dawn to get amazing sunrise footage for a @gramicci_climb film that’s in the works. Now we’re in Sedona AZ with the plan to tackle some world class basalt.

I think that’s it for me this season in Yosemite. It was kind of an uneventful Fall as far as climbing goes. Last spring was very successful for me on El Cap and I ended up ticking off all my 2019 goals. Then for some reason I kinda had a lazy summer with training and spent most of August doing easy solos in the High Sierra. That was great but I came to the Valley in mid September not fully prepared. I put a bit of work into trying to free The Nose in a push but after my first attempt it became clear that I just wasn’t in right shape for it. I actually had plans a couple days ago to make a speed run up The Shield with Jim Reynolds but bailed because I tore half my toe nail off the night before while walking barefoot into the woods to take a piss 😭. It’s always a shame to leave the Valley and especially now after my no send season. However it’s made easier because I’m headed off on a rad desert road trip with some good friends!

@chimney_jim and I are heading out to the Reel Rock 14 premiere in San Francisco tomorrow and Friday. It’s great watching rad climbing films in a huge building (The Castro Theatre) that’s packed with climbers. Plus It’ll be my first time watching The Nose speed record film! Rad shot by @_drew_smith_ of Jim doing a massive runout on the Nose.

A middle of the night climbing session on the Great Roof of The Nose. This pitch is 2000 feet up the wall but of course you don’t get a sense of the intense exposure in the dark. Climbing at night is not ideal but it’s better then trying to send hard granite in the hot sunshine. The Nose gets fully hit with sun around 11am so I got to be on top before then. Thanks to @connorclimbing for going up there with me at 1am to support me on this failed attempt. @gramicci_climb @evolv_worldwide @frictionlabs

I’m honored to grace about a third of this years Reel Rock trailer with my insightful wisdom 🤦🏻‍♂️. To be fair, I had just come off trying to free El Corazon in a day and I was feeling physically and mentally exhausted. I’ve made it a goal to climb something super badass every time Buffoon Brad makes the final cut. So get ready world. Regardless of all that, I think Reel Rock 14 might be one of the best yet. @gramicci_climb @evolv_worldwide @frictionlabs

I’m really excited for The Valley season to arrive. Ive been climbing a lot in the High Sierra this summer and that’s been fun but I’ve been itching to get back on El Cap where the real business (for me) is at. My big goal for Fall 19 was to climb El Niño in a day but I some how managed to tick that one off last Spring along with two other el Cap free routes. That’s left me with some stressful choices that I was thinking I wouldn’t have to make until next year. It could very well be that I had reached my El Cap limit last Spring but I guess there’s only one way to find out. Great shot by @steeppathproductions of when @alexhonnold and I climbed El Niño back in June. I whipped three times on this pitch before handing the lead to Alex. He floated up it and I followed in his anti gravitational wake. It’s weird how science works like that. @gramicci_climb @evolv_worldwide @frictionlabs

I’m starting to get psyched for Valley season. Yosemite is the only place that I consistently go to that I don’t get tired of. By the end of each season I’m usually ready to get out but I’m always anxious to get back when it starts to cool off or warm up. I don’t think El Cap will cease to inspire me. Last season was extremely successful for me and that was great but now the remaining free routes are getting harder and/or more scary. This is kind of stressful to think about but it’s also exciting. This is a shot by @anikulapu of the Golden Desert pitch on Golden Gate. Those aren’t my savage tick marks btw. @gramicci_climb @evolv_worldwide @frictionlabs

I just had an epic 17 hour, car to car day up in the Palisades. It involved Dark Star, Mount Galey, Mount Sill, Polemonium Peak, North Palisade, Starlight Peak and Thunderbolt Peak. There was plenty of chossaneering, high winds, bushwhacking, mosquitoes, glacier travel, stunning rock and beautiful views. You can see the whole story on the @gramicci_climb instagram page. @frictionlabs @evolv_worldwide

Enjoying a pleasant day in Corona Del Mar last Monday. I’ve been in SoCal for the last month but I now ready to leave the ocean and get up into the mountains. Killer pic by @sahmla_gee . @gramicci_climb @evolv_worldwide @frictionlabs

The secret beta to make Traitor Horn at Tahquitz Rock easier. I had a fun day with Sam Gabriel yesterday climbing and doing a bunch of pose down/product placement shots. There was just enough of a breeze to make the temps pleasant. The sunset was amazing. @gramicci_climb @frictionlabs @evolv_worldwide

Here’s another shot by @anikulapu of Golden Gate on El Cap. This was the last climb I did in the Valley this Spring and it’s one of best routes I’ve ever climbed. The sustained quality is incredible. Nearly every pitch spectacular. The rock quality, movement and position is as good as it gets. I went back after the send to get these shots with Elliott and @maison.deschamps and I ended up getting to climb some of these sections multiple times to get the best shots. It was awesome because every time I re climbed a section my beta and movement would get smoother. Comfortably climbing 13a over 2000 feet off the ground in the sunset is simply the best. @gramicci_climb @evolv_worldwide @frictionlabs
