In the middle of the hecticness of my graduation weekend, I made a last minute solo trip up to the Sierras to climb Mt. Morgan (13,748 ft.) via a traverse from Little Lakes Peak (12,782 ft.). After the first graduation ceremony and the ensuing festivities, the late night drive, and 3 hours of sleep off the side of the highway; I left the Mosquito Flat trailhead optimistic about what I was hoping would be a 'casual' day. I was so wrong. What ensued would be a 13 hour #sufferfest of (probably) 14 miles and ~5,000 feet of gain and loss with almost 7 hours spent traversing up, down, and back up the exposed ridgeline with the most sustained class 3 and 4 climbing, with one small class 5 headwall at the start, that I've ever experienced. Being in that physical and mentally taxing environment where each step needs to be as deliberate as possible for that long solo made this arguably the hardest route that I have done in the Sierras. Wrestling with internal turmoil of graduation throughout the day, deciding halfway through that I was going to go back to UCLA to go to my departmental graduation ceremony, and just overall being unsure if I had it in me to finish the route yet being in a fully committed position made this summit, this day, this weekend that much more memorable.

Two weeks ago while I️ was back in Squamish for the weekend I took advantage of the nice weather and jumped on some stellar granite.

View from the 3rd step on Mt Everest @ ~8,700m by team mate @dingofish_express. Not a bad view, but at the time there was not much time for taking it in when it’s just one foot in front of the other.. #everest2018 #sandtosummits #7summits #uphillathlete #summitclimb

Even with an iffy forecast it’s worth getting up in the middle of the night to try an objective. When it’s clear there will be no summit, there’s plenty of time to discuss the joys of night hiking! A good exercise in attitude 🤔🤨🤷‍♀️
Less grand than summiting perhaps, but definitely worthy of more coffee☕️.

A 4 am start led up a steep forest trail to a flat, wild flower filled meadow. From there we climbed steeply up moraines until a small glacier gained the ridge where we finally felt the warmth of the morning sun. Next, we were treated to a long, smooth, rock ridge that ended at yet another glacier leading to the summit. A full day at 28km and 2450 meters of gain. These runs are what we call The Way Up, and for us, today was the season opener. More info about this run is coming to Elevation in the next days.

Assign a sliver of your consciousness to observe yourself, your technique and surroundings, as if from the outside. The more you practice, the bigger the sliver will become.

First new run of the year today to add to Elevation, and it was a classic. In the coming days, we'll have a special collection of runs from the #JungfrauRegion, including what we're calling the Startergrat, a little testpiece concerned folks might consider before heading up on the Hardergrat.

Kind of a spur of the moment climb this weekend of The Brothers, one of the iconic peaks on the Olympic skyline. Fun to get up after so much time looking across the Sound at them. It’s an exhausting hike out but sore knees are worth it.

The two flights of stairs to the lab aren’t quite doing it for me... so antsy to get back to the mountains for some long days of power hiking and downhill dancing with my favorite mountain sloth @grangier_germain soon, very soon!

I like running uphill as hard as I can until I can’t anymore.

Yesterday: 1000m of uphill in 41min 17seconds at the @samoens.trailtour

This trip has been up and down literally with 2500m of height gain in 2-3 days, it’s been great the monastery’s have been fantastic for accommodation with the sun raise views across the mountains, and 6am meditation sessions.

Selfishly, sometimes I wish this valley, and the new development that has occurred over the last few years wasn’t here. However, at the same time, seeing people of all backgrounds and abilities from all over the world enjoying the backyard I have the privilege to call home is a cool feeling. And then it’s even cooler being able to escape the crowds almost immediately and have a full value alpine adventure in just a few short hours. #squamishsuckstellyourfriends #timetoplay #uphillathlete

Feels so great to get onto a local podium! 🥇🤗
After an amazing Saturday alpine climbing with the coolest guy around, I signed up in a whim for the Vertical Kilometer at the @samoens.trailtour, and got to share the podium with the impressive @laurierenoton and Catherine Juillaguet.

The 40m “2nd step” on the Tibet side of Everest. At sea level this would be a walk in the park. But at ~8600m the altitude and exposure make this a daunting obstacle, with risk of falling, of running low on O2 or getting frost bite while waiting for other climbers. My tent buddy and team mate @dingofish_express snapped this photo on our summit push. #sandtosummits #7summits #uphillathlete #everest2018

It’s hard not to miss my team and our time in the beautiful Himalayas after spending 2 months together. This photo was taken at the basecamp the day before we left for our summit attempt. They are some of the best people I got to know.

Down with flu so trying out some spin therapy while listening to YokoO - Robot Heart - Burning Man 2016.
I think this 4hr+ set is better for spinning than for tripping.

Northeast Delta Dental Mount Washington Road Race was great! At risk of sounding like Shooter McGavin: it’s worthy of returning to. I finished in 1:21:42 (gun time). 48th overall (out of 1000), 10th in my age group (30-34) | #salomonsquad #freedomofthehills #uphillathlete

So I’m on mission, to achieve a state of mind, peace and quite, mindfulness - awareness on the present moment. China is great for this, no real contact with the outside, unless you are a linguist. Just you, your thoughts and varied mix of awkward interactions with lots of hand jesters. …............................................................

Clawing through the workweek cooooould be compared to climbing mountains. But... the smile when you’ve made it to the top, the scenery is 😍 and the rest of the way is downhill is a bit of a different vibe than the relieved, I survived now please just let me go home smile at 5:00 on a Friday 😆#earnyourturns #uphillathlete #splitboarding #skitouring #wanderwashington #priorsnow #northcascades #washingtonstate #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwdiscovered #mountainlife #mountaintops #freshairandfreedom #livelifeoutdoors #neverstopexploring #weekendvibes #outdoorwomen #andshesdopetoo #womeninthewild #optoutside #forceofnature #friYAY #its448soimgonnaspend12minspostingonIGtillIcangohome 📷 @k.p0w

👊Try something new today!👊 -
-
Do you ever really want something but do the complete opposite to make it happen?
Want to learn a new skill or try something new but don’t want to take that first step so instead do nothing about it?
-
Start today, take that first step.
It doesn’t matter how small that first step is, simply doing it is huge. I promise you will be amazed what opportunities present themselves because you took action, put yourself out there and showed up. Habits take a while to form but if you do something or think a new thought regularly, it becomes a fully formed habit which means it becomes second nature to you.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a change... So why is taking that first step so damn hard? That leap of faith, that thought of being out of your comfort zone or breaking the norm. It’s all based on fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of failing, fear of CHANGE.
But the greatest fear of all is no change and standing still.

Make a change today.

“Two-kilo-tango, on the slide.” A phrase that means we’ve done our job. We’re headed home. We’re leaving the glacier behind along with the aches and pains proudly earned from thousands and thousands of steps fighting gravity under hundreds of pounds of gear. A dozen individuals landed on that glacier and 1 team flew off having given everything they had over 18 days. I’m continuously humbled by these mountains and the individuals that choose to come along with us for the adventure.

Yesterday I completed the toughest task I've ever undertaken.
Reaching the summit of Cotopaxi, at 5,897m was a complete rollercoaster of emotions, and it will take me a while to digest the whole experience.
There is no way I would have reached the summit, nor descend safely, without the guidance, care and assistance of the fabulous @carla.perez.ecuador and @estebantopomena. It was a privilege to be in this environment with the likes of these two.
Cotopaxi marks a new altitude record for me, by two meters. It goes without saying that Cotopaxi and Kilimanjaro, while separated by two meters in altitude are miles apart.
Onwards.
