An picture of @toppen_out yesterday at the Deep End Crag in Miller Fork Recreational Preserve on one of the twenty-three 5.12s that he climbed for his twenty-third birthday! The stoke is high in this guy.
"The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with weary feet, Until it joins some larger way, Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say." . . . I'm a day late to this post... HOWEVER, Happy Birthday @buildusfiction!!!! 🍻 ❤ . . . "The Road goes ever on and on Out from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone. Let others follow, if they can! Let them a journey new begin."
Just finished my twenty-sixth lap around the sun. My many pairs of red pants and I are ready for the next year! ❤👣 @buildusfiction 📸
Exploring around the Waitomo Marokopa falls. This picture does not do justice to how muddy it was.
@megcmarisa going for the clip on Native Son ( 5.11c ) at the Wake Up Wall Crag.
I'll be back in Kentucky for a long weekend the second week in March. Who is going to be around? I'm hoping to get in some photography along with climbing this trip. So hit me up if ya wanna do some photos. 😁 . . . #tbt @joekinder climbing at the chocolate factory during the Black Diamond tour.
Oh, New Zealand. You are my new favorite place to be.
Spear fishermen get their boat into position for the evening dive off the Makara coast outside Wellington.
When you take your rock to the top, it makes us all stand taller.
Summiting just as the weather breaks. New Zealand is just so good to us, I live for views like this.
Our time in Tongariro has been pretty damn magical.
The Tongariro Alpine Crossing Was Incredible!!! Definetly deserves it's place in the top 10 hikes in the world.
This was one of the most incredible hikes I have ever done. I am falling in love with the jungles here. Hidden caves, hidden waterfalls, hidden rivers, everything feels like a discovery. And @buildusfiction got to do his first river crossings (three times 😛). Covered in mud, and completely happy.
Makara Walkway! 💙
We didn't end up Summiting due to some gear failure... However, the views, weather and mountain did not disappoint! I can't wait to come back and try again. Next time I go, I definitely want to try in the winter. . . . Sorry the photos are not the best... taken with my phone... . .
