Terra Incognita did a thorough interview with me this week. If you'd like to read the most complete synopsis of my thoughts on climbing ever recorded, check it out here.
Wolverine Publishing is now carrying my guidebook Bouldering in the Wind River Range. If you'd like a copy of my greatest creative work to date, it's available here.
And summer vacation is over, but I got some great climbing in before returning to school. Here are my favorite photos from the last few weeks described with short captions.
I got to watch Kian get the first ascent of Mother*^!^*@# Snakes at the Rock Shop. It's a great looking line, and might be in the V8 range. Please let me know if you get the second ascent.
Kerrek had a great day at the White Stripes just a couple days later.
He got the 2nd ascent of "Knife Fight."
Ashley got the first ascent of "The Sabbatical" V8, at the White Stripes Sector.
Here's a shot I like of Alta and Kerrek starting the three mile hike out.
For my last big trip of the summer I spent 5 days at Devil's Kitchen with Jason. I'm posting photos, and I'm not going to pretend they were taken elsewhere. But be aware that access is sensitive. Buy the Tribal Fishing and Trespass permit. Get a tour from a local boulderer if you can, and try to be as discreet as possible.
Jason taught me how to take better photos of the stars. Here's one that I like.
