Went climbing in Joshua Tree again back around New Years and my takeaway is that this place is better the second time around. That, or maybe just going into it expecting to get spanked again is a good way of managing expectations. PC: @pauli.a.payne
When you look casual climbing steep ice people take notice. Aliah patiently makes her way up a classic Kinsman line. We discovered today that for photo shoots the perfect group size is 4! One to climb, one to belay and apparently two to photograph the athlete...Pics or it didn’t happen? @thewhitemountainschool Ice Climbers get after it! @amga1979#accreditedbusiness
OMG! It's Tuesday, which mens, NEW BOULDER SECTOR!
I'm pretty excited.
So here is a neat picture of @nedclimbs taken by @pat__klein on the sector we are setting, on a boulder that was set for state titles. So you can't climb this one, but there will be others, just as good.... No, better!
My brain is back at school but my heart is still in Bishop 💔 thanks to @nip9 for snapping this pic of me on the send of High Plains Drifter, one of the coolest climbs I’ve ever done!
Smallest crimps Ive climbed through ever. 👊😬
Psyched to feel 100 percent and get back to climbing hard. So many boulders on my mind so little time.
I've had a shoulder/Lat injury the past month and a half that has completely stopped me from climbing. This was the result of climbing through bad tendonitis and taking more Ibuprofen than I should have to numb the pain. Ive been doing a lot of foam rolling, self massage, PT and stretching. However the most beneficial thing Ive done is gone to get worked on by Steven Rizzolo. He does a plethora of things and has been my go to guy for injury prevention or in this case injury recovery. Ive had 4 sessions with him and am finally starting to feel closer to 100. For now I have a bit more healing to do and should be back at full force within a few weeks. Check him out at Boulder Sports Acupunture 💪🏼😎

One thing I really love about climbing is that it forces you to be completely and entirely present. Nothing else exists, just you and the rock breathing side by side. Fully in the moment, 100% here in the now. 📷 by @leonlegot (ps-check out my art @amilliontinylines amilliontinylines.com -link in bio)
