The sun is up, the sky is blue, it's beautiful and so are YOU!
As climbers we get to take a snapshot of our partner on the summit. That snapshot can never reveal the exposure and scene from which it was taken. The sheer size and space that you occupy when climbing has never before been known to outsiders.
This may be some of the most incredible footage ever taken.
I haven’t posted in a long time and all my followers are probably forgetting about me!
Here’s an awesome video and I’ll try to get back to it.
Hit up my ask and I’ll reply with a list of excuses of why I haven’t been posting!
I’ve only recently had enough time to start looking at Fred Becky’s amazing tribute to climbing. I was fortunate enough to meet the 89 year young legend and shake his hand at a rare appearance in Boulder at the Patagonia store last month.
Fred logged his initial First Ascent in 1940 and is still going strong today. An icon of climbing’s past, present and future, Fred is credited with more First Accents than any other American. Fred is at home in the alpine and according to one flavorful story he told, he is at home sleeping in the back seat of his car.
How many of us dream about living the “dirtbag” lifestyle? To climb every single day that we want to? To live for ourselves instead of society? This man is a true inspiration, the Kerouac of my people.
I feel honored to have shook his hand, and I hope to climb with Fred some day and with the people he inspired.
I can quit any time I want!
