It's not too late for those epic Spring backcountry sessions! Ritter was looking pretty great the other day when BVC ambassador @milesweaverphoto skied off the summit!

Long overdue pic from last weekend when @joeldesgreniers, @matt_ruta and I skied off the west shoulder of Athabasca.

It wasn't the diddliest or even the doodliest line but it was one of the funnest of the season.

Full sail. Taken moments before a full collapse. Back when we were living that easy skanking SoCal lyfestyle. ...

On day 3 we roped up and stepped off from high camp on the #IngrahamFlats at 3 am and headed towards the summit. My rope team ascended 3200’ via the #IngrahamDirectRoute and hit the crater rim in just under 5 hours. After spending some time on the top for obligatory #summitpics we descended back down to high camp on the glacier in 2 hours flat. All considered it was a smooth day. Despite days of exhaustion, physical exertion, and little sleep, I was really happy with how strong I felt throughout the climb. #success #summitday #alpinestart #mountrainier #alpinemountaineering #KWinthePNW #conchered

It's that time of year again! Volcano skiing and climbing in the same weekend! This weekend we're heading off to the 2nd Memorial Day Weekend Alpine Ski and Climbing (MDWASC) trip. Here's a pic from our first trip of @adventureofstyle cruising down the corn-snow covered Avalanche Gulch route on Mt. Shasta. .

Got an alpine start on our last day at Smith Rock to climb Voyage of the Cow Dog to watch the sunrise! Absolutely worth the 3am start! .

Insanely beautiful morning in Glacier Gorge in RMNP. Hiked to the base of the trough on Longs Peak. Sunrise in the alpine is always worth the 2am start time! #hiking #glaciergorge #longspeak #rmnp #alpinestart #worthit #icantevenwiththisview

It’s the season for goodies! The climbersfestival is approaching fast and our sponsors are making sure you are going to have a blast and be well #caffeinated. You can thank @alpinestartfoods in person for hooking you up with crag-ready booster sticks (my term haha). ☕️🧗🏽‍♀️
They will be slinging the goods all weekend long. If you haven’t tried it, get your ticket and get your chance. Did I mention it’s delicious!? Tester update: It doesn’t seem to have much effect on 💻 ...

Strong winds during the ascent to summit Mt St Helens.

Thanks to @workoutholic2000 for capturing this video of sunrise!

Alpine start on Sunday 6 May. Breakfast at 2am and then climb down from the refuge to our skis and set off up towards the Petit Plateau along the original ascension route of Mont Blanc. We realised we weren’t going to make the summit and get back in time to catch the cable car down from the Plan d’Aiguille so we called it and instead returned to the refuge for a nap before enjoying the rest of the descent drinking in the scenery and watching the PGHM in action rescuing someone with a suspected broken ankle 🏔️⛷️ It would’ve been an ideal summit day so it was a shame I had to get back to pack and drive to Geneva at 3am the following morning, but the mountain isn’t going anywhere!

300 days of blue sky is overrated. We want more coldness and wetness. That's why Ptarmigan is flying down for her mountain coop next week for the final phases of @racetoalaska training.

Did not summit ... But epic long day, slogging around in the slush, trail food, carbopro, hot, cold, clouds, wind, sun, boots, axes, and poop in a bag. ... That about describes the Whitney zone in a nutshell.

<< ALPINE START >> Early mornings… they hurt me. When the alarm went off, my mind (very) slowly awakens, my body still in denial. Hoping that the snooze button allows ten more minutes rest. But an image appears out of the dark cloud of sleep: the couloir. A white line between rugged rocks. A thousand meter vertical beauty. Details start to appear. The line up leads through a narrow snow band guarded with dark rock on both sides. Looking up a triangle shaped rock is the top a thousand meters away. The couloir opens up. Step by step, passed two seracs, along the rocks until the saddle… My sleep drunken fingers unzip the sleeping bag. LETS PLAY! (But first coffee)

Soon the sun doesn't set until the end of July - time for Jon Snow & co to go and find work elsewhere since there is no night to watch over here! (and not really any other jobs available either, it's pretty damn quiet at the moment. Perhaps some husky-feeding and poo-cleaning) *

I love the seasons in Lapland. They change so quickly and they are so significantly and beautifully different from one another - even now that the winter is gone (and I do miss it already!) I am still fascinated by the undescribable magic of this weird place far far up North. *

On the trail before dawn makes for some killer sunrise watching. Found some good snow up high, though we definitely had to #workforit hiking down this dirt trail for a while before we even saw our line. Very tired by the time we returned to the car at 3:30 pm, after waking up at 3:30 am, whew! .

Just enjoying the view at 12,000ft after getting totally worked on the hike up. Turns out 3000ft in 2 miles at altitude is just as terrible as it sounds. We didn’t make the summit but we did build some character. .

Woke up at 3am, in a car parked at a trailhead. Got the boots on under the stars and hiked by headlamp until we watched the sunrise. Hours later we ate half a pizza on the summit of a volcano in a whiteout. I think this makes me an official #mountaineer

Alpine Starts!
Gotta wake up early to get after it!
There's still skiing to be had, you just have to work a little bit harder. .

The word of the day is dichotomy. di·chot·o·my: a division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as being opposed or entirely different.
.
After months of suspense waiting for a friend, acquaintance, or mentor to come into my life and guide me up Rainier I looked at @rmiexpeditions' availability on a whim. They had one opening. At roughly the time I wanted to climb.
.
I meditated, thought outloud, phoned a friend. All this work was for naught - I already knew I was committed.
.
Yesterday I looked over my training plan, debating if this should be a rest week after climbing to Muir with a 40lb pack over the weekend. I'm ecstatic to have a personal trainer session with a lady climber next week, and I'm feeling super confident about my progress.
.
Mid morning I got a message I knew was coming - my grandpa died. I feel so fortunate that I got to see him on my birthday Tuesday. We had the sweetest last hug and held hands for a long time.
.
I'm devastated that he's gone, but I'm glad he isn't hurting anymore. The dichotomy between being thrilled to live and being torn by grief is strange uncharted territory.

When you find your favorite trail coffee on sale you buy all the trail coffee on sale. 💵 Take my money! I’m not a coffee snob but I actually like this stuff, I just don’t stand it for caffeine’s sake. I have to hide it away at home or busy mornings I would use it and it wouldn’t make it on the trail at all! Shout out to all the coffee snobs I know and love! ❤️ #alpinestart #instantcoffee #instantlygood #keepitwild  #simplyadventure #wildernessculture #lifeofadventure #liveoutdoors  #beautifuldestinations #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #wherewillwegonext  #makemoments #exploremore #stayandwander  #goexplore #destinationearth #exploringtheworld #welltravelled #lovelifeoutside #womenforwildlands #staywild #happierwhenhiking #happierinahammock #happierwithcaffeine #happierwhenkayaking #coffee

Spring skiing from Slalok to Matier. By 830am it was too hot to climb anything with sun on it but the corn was just right for some puckered 45 plus runs. P.S. the aussie is dead, water runnel and rock fall galore in the now anorexic couloir. @jameshawes89

The big corner on #Dreamweaver. What a nice climb. Solid limestone, varied climbing from chimney to slab. Marble Canyon keeps delivering! If your planning a trip but you think it’s too hot... it’s fine, just make sure your topping out by 12noon. #alpinestart #marblecanyon #adventureclimbing #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #beautifulbc
