I have been bad about posting updates. I am still very much psyched but seem to be climbing a little less? this nagging pinched nerve thing in my neck has been an ongoing nuissance for the last month. But lately i have been training and planning. I have some travel plans on the horizon which motivate me to be lighter and stronger.
last week i pulled my camera out of my backpack to find the lens completly smashed up into the body. Thankfully i got the fail safe warranty; but I will be without fresh pictures for awhile.
This image is of our friend Brick. Wish him well as he sets up to wreck shit in NYC. good luck.

is PARK season over?

If the park season is infact over, it will be one week too soon for me. I plan on heading to chaos tomorrow with a broom, in hopes of being able to climb on tuesday. I hear people excited about the snow and it makes me want to puke.

on the other hand, I had a fantastic season. I want to thank everyone i had a chance to climb with this year for the spotting, the encouragement, and the laughs. good shit everyone!!

Hallet Boulder

On Tuesday, i went to the Hallet Boulder with nick and feinberg. This was my first hike up to this boulder, and fortunately the temps were fairly cool. Nick and Mike sent stranger in a strangeland back to back. freakin awesome.

I have a few more images to share from upper chaos. last week i climbed with Kook and his crew(andy, patrick, jody and dave). Conditions were rainy and humid, but climbing with new people was fun. We stayed under the skipper roof for close to 4 hours while we waited out the storm, and then ended the day on the el jorge boulder. i managed to do the the far left el jorge near the end of the day despite the grease and onslaught of dead baby jokes.

Yesterday, i went to upper with kook and brick. Can't we all just get along? i found myself repeating. no not really. Fun times. we climbed on skipper roof for awhile. then i took a burn on skipper d, still unfinished. then we headed to a new boulder called future relic. this was put up by matt kennedy and highly advertised by kook. the boulder start on a good r hand, and l hand blocky undercut. good feet moving left to good but sharp edges. set up for a big throw to a pretty good hold l hand, come in easier move to a r hand side pull, and to the top. 7c. kevin is close. brick and I were not psyched. next to the aristocrat boulder. brick finished this boulder while it was raining, and the top was slick as shit. nice one brick! we ended the day at the green wall boulder. It was my first time seeing jade and all the other bad ass lines up there. i expected more from 1000 shades of green, but was blown away by the lines suicide seasons (proud chad), wild cats, and that new 8b arete. holy crap.

more of the same

Whats up jerks? I have been on the run for the last couple of weeks. A non-climbing trip to yosemite is like being a diabetic in a candy store. painful but still enjoyable. I spent some time in Truckee with some close friends and some new friends. People who aren't OCD about boulders apparently spend their time wakeboarding, sailing, biking and the like. I joined in, and besides wrecking my good skin, it was fun. Back now to the object of my OCD. I spent a couple days in the park before going back to work. Conditions are getting much better, and im psyched for things to come. one of the problems im psyched on is jeff's problem, the aristocrat. below are images of ryan brazell working the moves.

3 pics

Lately upper has been my new favorite. Great lines at my limit, less custys, and cooler temps are just a few reasons that come to mind. I have worked the last 6 nights and now look forward to a great week in the park. more images will certainly follow.

This guy loves upper too.

Pete travelling light.

a COOL day in the Park

Today I had another great day in Chaos Canyon. It looked socked in the entire hike. You couldn't see Long's Peak with all the crazy fog and mist. The temps were 25 degrees cooler than the day before and the rock felt sticky. It stayed dry and the mist finally cleared as the evening came. Besides torturous death to all mosquitos, what more could you ask for?
Below are some images of me working Handicapps. Progress today so i'm psyched.
