They say the Lotus Flower Tower is one of the best rock climbs in the world. It's amazing nobody ever branched out to its lovely sister on the left that had never been freed. The Source on Tara Tower - Grade V 5.12 FFA Luke Holloway, Pat Goodman and myself August 2017. @thenorthface
I've never rolled with the punches quite like this trip, jumping from one crazy idea to the next in hours or even minutes, sucking the air out of the vacuum over and again. Thank you Canada for hospitality, wilderness, and adventure galore. @pegoodman @lukegholloway @thenorthface
It's been a wild ride. From the headwaters of the Little Nahanni River to the #cirqueoftheunclimabables, down and out the class V rapids of Britnell Creek all the way to #VirginiaFalls. 240 miles of boating, 80 miles of hiking, many days climbing, First Free Ascent of Tara Tower. Sun and snow. @pegoodman shared years of knowledge with @lukegholloway and I. We couldn't have done it without @carmencrossj and @colleenweeks. .

When Vegas is 115*F it is a saving grace that the Sierra Nevada are 4.5 hours away.
It's about to get real (wet). Friday we depart for the Northwest Territories. Boats, climbing gear, lots of food, No return tickets. Time to lose our minds in the mountains. #icantswim #neverstopexploring
Sagebrush. Hottie. Cute dawg. Rocks in 5 minutes. Nothing more could be asked for. @carmencrossj #neverstopexploring
Some mornings you be like... bzzzzzz......Crystal clear by the bottom of the cup. #neverstopcaffeinating
12 miles. ~7000ft vertical up, a few hours sleep, 12 miles and 7k vert back down. @andyreger #neverstopsmiling and always psyched. The most go with the flow guy you have ever met. #mountainvision #neverstopexploring
Welcome to Tuolumne Meadows National Park. I love it here. @andyreger
It's been fun to spend a long weekend teaching big wall climbing. It's different and unique and I really do love it. It's been a non-stop information assault for Pete!#readyfortherealdeal #maximropes #bigwallclimbing #neverstopexploring
Monsters of fork. #thesedefinitelyarenotfromthecaf #forkyeah
Pay homage to the mountains and hope for safe passage. You win some and lose some but hope to always come home safely. My late season trip to the #torresdelpaine was a loss in the way of mountain tops but a huge win in the way of knowledge and experience. we did get a few days of nice sport climbing near town though, always fun! #neverstopexploring #mountainvision #rainrainrain
It turned out we probably could have squeaked a few turns out of that couloir. #mountainvision #neverstopexploring #mtcharleston #bristleconepine
Big Walls on my mind. Reticent Wall - A4+

I love living in Las Vegas because during the winter everyone wants to be here, friends come and visit and you can climb thousands of feet 20 minutes from my front door. Yeah, it's 115 out right now, but we have our secret hideaways, sport climbing and multi pitch areas high above the hot valley floor. @whitneyclark6 in a big stem somewhere out in Red Rocks this spring. #neverstopexploring #maximropes
Chicago People! Anyone want to come hang out at a Camp Sullivan (south of the city) today and tonight for a big hang out, camping, pig roast, concert, beer, lawn games Basecamp get together? Come out!
My parents came to town, They loved the hike this time, last time I almost killed them. #oops. Anyone who has met them knows I'm freaking lucky because they are the best. Happy #retirement for my Mom, happy birthday and happy #FathersDay for my Pops!
Big wall fort building is one of my favorite aspects of climbing #elcapitan. It's a lot of work up there but always a real good time when you're with these guys @conrad_anker @grahamzimmerman 📸by @fortyonethirty
Stoke is contagious and @conrad_anker has so much of it to share it's going viral up here on #ElCapitan. This week we're at the big church, across from the Cathedral. The Mountains are where we worship, it's fun to help with this awesome film project about 'The Religion of Sports' showing Alex Wildman's battle for life and reaping the rewards with his first trip up El Cap with his friend and mentor. Keep an eye for an episode somewhere..sometime in the near future. @grahamzimmerman @fortyonethirty @thenorthface @totemcams @bedrockfilmworks
