is hard! The weather has been less than perfect but i have been attempting it anyway. The past week Alex has spent countless hours on the belay as i work out the moves and complain about how hot it is. I have been able to do some really nice links and feel that in cooler temps it could for sure be possible. I am going to continue to try the moves and get the climb all sussed out. Since the temps do not look as if they are not going to be under 90 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes climbing such a hard route quite difficult. I think i am going to try and make a trip back here for a long weekend sometime this fall to go for a redpoint attempt. Hopefully it will get cooler and i can try for it because today i finally figured out the slab section which was the last section of moves i need to do!!!

Squamish and Progression

I have finally made it to Squamish! Alex and I drove from Portland the other day and are now in Squamish. The drive was long but well worth it. We got to climb yesterday for the first day. It was a bit on the warm side. Hopefully it will cool down shortly. Alex got an amazing flash set up for her new camera and her newest photos are looking amazing! I will post some up as soon as we get them on the computer. Hopefully it will cool down a bit and i can begin to try some difficult rock climbs!

Besides getting to Squamish, we had an awesome time at the Summer OR. The comp was fun, though i did not feel 100 percent. It was great to catch up with a lot of friends and meet some new ones. Besides the comp and the show was the first screening of a good portion of the new film by Josh lowell, ( Progression. The film looks like it is going to be amazing when finished! At the OR show, they showed segments on Tommy Caldwell in Yosemite, Chris Sharma on Jumbo Love, and Kevin Jorgeson on his new highballs in Bishop. All of it was super inspiring and the Reel Rock Tour in September should be quite a fun show to end across the country! Daniel and I filmed for Progression in South Africa last summer and it looks like Josh will be using this footage in the Progression DVD.

Anyway, the week was great and now i am in on of the most beautiful places in North America. stay tuned for pictures!

today we are leaving Humboldt county on our way to Portland to stay at my aunts house before departing for SLC. The weather has been amazing and we have one final day of climbing here before we make the trek up to Portland. It will be one day in Portland before we leave for the Outdoor Retail Show in Salt Lake. It will be nice to fly there since we have been driving quite a bit the last couple of weeks.

I plan on competing in the comp and hope that my lack of indoor climbing won't shut me down to badly. after the comp it is on our way again to Squamish, the main destination of our trip!

After a ton of driving Alex and I have finally made it to Humboldt! The weather is beautiful and the bouldering on the beach is spectacular! It feels nice to finally be in a place where it is not over 100 degrees outside! Waking up every morning to a cool breeze and amazing boulders is pretty perfect!

From here it is off to the tradeshow and then an extended period of time in Squamish where I cant wait to try the singularity and dream catcher!

More updates to come!
