Lately I have been recognizing the power and importance of collaboration.. I am one who leans towards doing things by myself, especially in my work, without the help of anyone.. maybe it's me trying to navigate my way out of my insecurities by proving to myself that I have enough knowledge and skill to not have to rely on anyone else.. because asking for help would be cheating right?? I'm so excited to share a film that my partner, her brother, and their dear friends all created together. No one person is to blame for making something so unique and beautiful in their free time, but as a whole they came together and made this. I'm more excited than ever to harness the power of collaboration, just like they did, with my good friends and my incredible partner. Link in my profile to watch this rad film.

Feeling an enormous amount of gratitude that Choss Whisperer just got awarded a Vimeo Staff Pick. Thanks so much @mikelibecki and @spenceymac for  making it all happen.

Inner critic paralysis. "Why would someone want to watch it? It's too similar to what has already been done so many times. I shouldn't have messed up those drone settings. No one will hire me if they see this." Ultimately I have a huge powerful fear of failure, and I'm on the path towards unfucking that part of me. Here's a film that I only ever shared with a few people, and since then forgot about. The reality is that I did my very best, I learned a lot, experienced one of the most beautiful places on the planet, got to work with an amazing editor who I highly admire, and spent two weeks with a mentor who has helped redefine so much in my life. Thanks so much for all the people that keep nudging me to make things like this, and those who remind me that ultimately it is ok if one of these projects does 'fail'. My intention in sharing these words is to hopefully open up the conversation about creativity, as I'm finding out that I'm not totally alone in these insecurities that have nearly ended the story telling that I'm so passionate about. Thanks @mikelibecki for such a beautiful experience in the jungle. Thanks @spenceymac for so much hard work in the edit. Link in profile 🤓

Thank you, sweet @juliberryy for your ferocious yet deeply gentle love. You are by far the most special human I have ever met. Today is the 366th day that you have been in my life, it doesn't seem real.. I can't wait for all that we will continue to live through together. The smiles and the tears, the laughter and the frustration, the thoughtfulness and forgetfulness, I love every part of you // 📷 Juliet cloud riding on top of Timewave Zero, Mexico

Family. The definition of what that means in my life has changed so much over this past year. Before, I have struggled with the balance of family being very important to me, yet never making it a top priority. Though I have so so much love for my family, my climbing, my friends, my work, and my self-centeredness only allowed time for them when it was convenient. When I met Juliet, one of the first things I learned was how close she was with her family. The first few days I spent with her was so profound that it forever changed my relationship and closeness with my parents, brothers, and so many other people in my life.  What's more important in this world than the people that you hold closely? A few days ago Juliet's Dad passed away unexpectedly. I lack the ability to even begin to share how important he was to her and the rest of their big beautiful family, and how unbelievably saddened I am for their loss. The gravity of his love, affection, and thoughtfulness was a much stronger force than I ever knew. I have spent these past days laughing and crying as I sit and listen to hours and hours of stories and memories. Juliet's Mom, brothers, and sister have a GoFundMe set up to help with the transition into this next phase of their life without their Dad, the link is in my profile. Thank you so much Ulibarri family for showing me a new type of love, and allowing me to feel so comfortable, accepted, and supported. I love you all so much.

Last summer I got asked to go on a trip with @mikelibecki.. it turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life.. getting to spend 24/7 for 5 weeks with him, his brother @andylibecki and @kingmargaret in vibrant and sometimes precarious places while each one of us ripped open our chests, digesting our personal complex lives. trying to figure out how to best navigate the tricky terrain in our relationships.. and around crevasses. Altai Mountains, Mongolia.

A few days ago I turned 28. That’s a big number, one that officially makes me feel like an adult (even though I still just feel like a big goofy kid). Sometimes negativity is associated with age and getting older, but for me I just keep thinking about how the more years that pass by the better you get at life.. thanks @rolandmott for teaching me that many years ago. This past year has been a lot.. a lot of work, a lot of decisions.. a heavy dose of heartbreak, and then a flood of healing and love. I have so much to be grateful for, and am learning to constantly remind myself of how privileged and lucky I am.. More than anything, I’m so grateful to have the most incredible woman I have ever met in my life. @juliberryy continually shows a type of unconditional love that I didn’t know existed, and has helped shift the way I see the world and interact with the humans in it. I can't wait for so many more adventures with this special girl. Photo @kulibarri

How do I even begin to share the gratitude that I have for being able to be a part of such a perspective shifting experience? It's wild thinking about how almost everyone on the Free Solo crew at one point in their lives was a misfit who ended up in Yosemite. For each one of us, The Valley showed us a path, and hurled us into different yet similar trajectories. Being able to work so hard together in a place so special to each one of us meant alot.. I'd call this a pretty big win for the monkeys, and everyone else who all poured their hearts and souls into this project. Thank you so much @jimmychin and @mikeylikesrocks for taking a chance by hiring a young kid like me in the beginning. Thanks @daveallfrey and @oceangoingmonkey for the endless and sometimes thankless hours of heavy load carrying and with rope toiling on the wall. Thanks @clairpopkin for your puns, neverending kindness, and answer to so so many questions about being a well rounded filmmaker. Thank you @samuelcrossley for your chocolate chip cookies and the thousands of random yet crucial tasks.. Thank you @jimhurst for your crazy stories and spending hours teaching me about sound. Thank you @mesdferg and @seregs for the insane amount of behind the scenes work it took to organize  and find some type of order amidst the chaos. Thank you @publishthequest for such good vibes and late nights to get us our cards. Thank you Johnson family, for your love and opening up your home to be a safe place for me to reset after each El Cap mission. Thank you @chaivasarhelyi for your brilliant mind, the nuances that you danced with to create this film I will never fully understand. Thank you @peconic21 and @natgeo who ultimately made the whole thing possible. Thank you to all the people who worked on the post production this thing, sifting through 700 hours of footage cannot be computed in my brain. Thank you Bob Eisenhardt for creating an absolutely incredible edit of .2% of the footage we shot.  And a very important thank you to @alexhonnold, that was fucking so scary and so rad.. I can't believe what it must have felt like for @sannimccandless. My perspective as a climber and filmmaker has forever been shifted.

I was 15 years old when my high school teacher showed our Adventure Education class photos of big wall climbers on El Cap. Humans living on the wall for multiple days?! Years later I would eventually drop out of college and move to Yosemite.. a place that completely transformed my life. Fast forward through dozens of big walls, a marriage, a divorce, deaths of good friends, and a real scary accident in the Arctic, I never thought I would climb again.. especially not on El Cap. I have accumulated quite a bit of emotional baggage over the past 12 years of climbing. I have been learning to unravel and diffuse the anxiety, pressure, and a bit of PTSD associated with the thing that was once the center of my life. Earlier this year I reconnected with someone who completely shifted everything.. The healing power of unconditional love is something that I didn't know existed, and could never imagine the magnitude of joy that it would allow me to experience. I am again in the hills feeling the freedom that I became infatuated with as a kid. @juliberryy, I will never be able to thank you enough for all that you have already done to forever change my life. I can't wait for so many more adventures and many more nights snuggling and laughing on a portaledge with you 🤓 thanks for the summit photo @_drew_smith_

Im feeling pretty lucky to have  been able to collaborate with @timkemple on a few really cool projects this year. This one was really special... Editing for me is by far the hardest part of the story telling process, with just my brain, my emotions, and a lot of late night tinkering trying to figure out how to weave together a cohesive story. This was the first time I have edited someone else's footage, and it was by far the most interesting portraits of a human I have ever been able to help paint. Thanks Tim for such a rad capture and all of the eye opening lessons I have learned so far. Thanks Surfer Dan for your contagious and fierce enthusiasm... Link in profile @camp4collective

Feeling so much gratitude for all of the learning experiences while working on @freesolofilm. I hadn't spent very much time around other artists and storytellers at that point, and most of what I knew about filmmaking was from Vimeo and making lots of mistakes by myself. It completely expanded and stretched  my perspective in so many beautiful and often  uncomfortable ways. I'm so thankful for the mentorship of @jimmy_chin @mikeylikesrocks @clairpopkin  @jimhurst and their patience as I constantly beraded them with hundreds of questions 🤓

What an honor to have been able to pour myself into the two year process of chasing around @alexhonnold as he got ready to solo El Cap (something even I thought was not humanly possible in this lifetime). Getting to shoot, toil with really long and heavy ropes, and learn from the people who got me into this filmmaking thing from the very beginning was transformative. I have an infinite amount of gratitude for all of my friends on the crew who also had to dig deep to capture and edit @freesolofilm. I can't wait for you all to see it. Thanks @jimmy_chin for the photo, the life lessons, and for the many days spent dangling off of the side of tall cliffs!
