Going through my “yikes” vault this fine Sunday.  40 degrees turns into 45 in a debris field turns into 55 degree choke and a small loose wet slide pushed my tails right into the crux choke point.  Wait for it..... “Yikes” rating 8/10⭐️ #rmuoutdoors #spring #corn #sunday #sundayfunday #yikes

I’d kill to be back up in the alpine setting a boot pack for @bryanfino13 and @scottbellow.  Until it snows and my knee gets better, I’ll have to wait patiently.  #shotsfired 😂

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to get on @outofpodcast with @adam_jab and of course it turned into nerdfest 2019.  Please go have a listen!  We talked about bindings, the epic pass, and more.... He’s created something really cool and has some really cool ski industry people on there!

Hey @wally_hatz remember our week long PNW Volcano road trip that started with this approach to Lassen and then it was the only summit we got?  Let’s get a repeat in this spring eh? Shasta and the Sisters Traverse are still calling me and I can’t block their numbers.

Riding into winter with busted shins and  wincing in my ski boots but the cross training is worth it! My knee feels pretty damn good and my fitness is better going into ski season more than ever.  Thanks @transitionbikes for building some damn fine bikes and making biking the absolute most fun. 📸: @alexneuschaefer

Sometimes you plan on a 5 pitch sweet excursion, and then it turns into a 15 mile day scrambling up and down scree fields with 2 ropes, a double rack, only 4 liters of water for 2 people, and a little food. 
Pros: @cedricgamble and I have a long history of Type 2 adventures and really pushing the limits of safety (not a big deal if you’re used to that....? I think?)
Cons: we were supposed to be finished at noon, and we finished at 4, and Cedric missed his house showing with his fiancé @saravalerious .  ALL GOOD THOUGH- they didn’t buy that house and Sara is still with Cedric for at *least* another month before she finds out Cedric is an 8 time felon on the FBI’s most wanted list. 🤷🏽‍♂️👖💯🔥⭐️🖖🏼💩🍄🤖🕺🏽🦜 #adventure #moab #desert #climbing #hiking #approach

*Look Closely* you’ll see a few ants crawling up an anthill.  What do I love about offwidth? The suffering.  I’ll be damned if I don’t love a good brutal battle with rock.  It’s also quite the feeling getting on a Kor/Beckey Route from 1961. .

What a week in the desert!  Checked off a few bucket listers with some really good company.
1.  Climbed the Kor-Ingalls route on Castleton Tower
2. Biked the Whole Enchilada

One of the coolest parts of this trip was linking the views on these two adventuers.  As I climbed Castleton, I would stop and stare towards the Lasalle’s and Porcupine Rim, where I’d be biking later in the week.  When we got after the Whole Enchilada, we had splendid views of Castle Valley in all it’s glory.  Next on the list- ski Mt. Tuk into biking the Whole Enchilada!
