My climbing grade and running times have suffered substantially post-injury, but my stoke and dedication have only increased.
.
So too has my crew of badass friends. Psyched for all the new ones this weekend brought about and the old ones that are back at it with us 🤘🏼
.
Pretty damn lucky to have 16 weekends in a row outdoors... and things are just getting started.

Fearless, this one, he is. @danielpetroski__

Two weekends back, our trip to Bishop incidentally coincided with the amazing @heyflashfoxy Women’s Climbing Festival.
.
The amount badass energy was inspiring and motivating! Super fortunate to meet so many stellar humans celebrating the community and craft that we all give so much try-hard to.

Here’s @michyllica showing that even a knee brace can’t keep her from putting distance on the classic Seven Spanish Angels (V6).

Climbing is really just a means for me to meet more dogs.

This sweet one spends her days with @mrhcly - mainly melting hearts (or at least mine).

Today’s #wcw is dedicated to these fearless, adventurous and tireless #slaydies that have had a profound impact on my life and climbing. Let’s keep exploring these wild spaces, exhausting every bit of energy we have and most of all; doing the damn thing.

Finding it progressively challenging to come home each weekend. These beautiful spaces feel more like home with each passing moment. And I like that. Quite a bit.

I love being new to something. Learning new skills always increases the facets of this exciting world that we can enjoy. And that’s what I did this weekend. I’m still reeling from my first trad leads, which were in fact my first trad climbs.
.
.
Before my injury I had lead an outdoors sport 5.11b (Light the Fuse). After “healing” I lead a gym 5.12b. And now, here I am on a 5.7 R trad climb, adrenaline coursing through my veins.
.
.
Look close (halfway from the bottom of the photo to me) and you’ll see the last piece of pro. After that, it’s a pure slab climb with no opportunity for protection. In other words, from where I was (80’ high), a fall would certainly end badly. Very badly. I can’t recall the last time I was at once so excited, thoughtful and scared. The climb itself was not terribly difficult, but the mental control and exertion was. No way to bail, no quick exit; commit or suffer yet another injury. I think I hooped and hollered loud enough for the entire park to hear when I clipped those anchors! .
.
Goddamn. I love this life.

Turns out trad is indeed rad! You mean I get to climb 85’ with only three opportunities for pro? Forced runout?!? Yeah...I’m down for that!
.

Thanks for the amazing shot @camille.marguerite and the super mega classic solid belay from the premier @joey_maloney

Thanks to my good friend and physical therapist @jluu4 at @nakoaperformance I’m doing the things I love to do, with the people I love doing them with, every weekend.
.
.
So thankful for everyone that’s helped keep the stoke alive. Recovery isn’t easy, but saying yes to life sure as hell is. Only have this one chance. Best to do it right.

PC: @livelaughjeff . Much talent.

Still can’t believe how often I get to see this and how I never grow tired of it.
