It’s been a long winter... #seasonalshifts


A nice afternoon in the hills w @mikeylikesrocks. Sometimes it’s just about finding a nice spot to sit. Happy Monday folks...! @thenorthface_climb @thenorthface @yeti @hanahliving


A big week in the Valley...one of celebration w @alexhonnold and @tommycaldwell breaking the mythical 2 hour barrier on the Nose. And one of loss with the climbing accident and tragic deaths of Jason Wells and Tim Klein. We are a resilient community, one w heart and drive. We embrace both the ones who push the impossible but also the ones who have lost. It’s called family and I’m proud to be a part of it.

A beautiful short film about legendary 21x Everest summiter Apa Sherpa from my friends at @sherpascinema. Incredible cinematography from @leohoorn. Great work gentlemen...
Check the film at the link in my bio and help support @apasherpafoundation.

Pretty awesome to hear @tommycaldwell and @alexhonnold broke the Nose speed record on El Cap yesterday in a blistering 2 hours 10 minutes and 15 seconds. To put that in perspective, there are a lot of teams that take two hours to climb one pitch on the Nose. Tommy and Alex climbed 31 pitches covering roughly 3000ft of vert in that amount of time, dropping 10 minutes off the previous record. I’m not sure I want to know how they did it but it’s probably fair to imagine a few epic run outs...! Sub three hours on the Nose seemed impossible ten years ago, sub two hours is now on the horizon....
A good moment to welcome Alex to the @livemomentous team. To see Alex’s latest blog about how climbing and mountaineering are becoming less of a counter culture lifestyle and more like high performance sports, check the link in my bio.

Stoked to be joining the @livemomentous team. Nice to finally find a perfectly built recovery drink for training and expeditions. Check the link in my bio for a recent interview w @livemomentous about life, balance and being a climbing bum.
