The thing I love about guiding is sharing the fun of the vertical world and helping to make goals that may be just out of reach completely feasible. Despite cold winds, an early start and a discomfort squirming through hundreds of feet of chimneys, a good time was had by all three of these awesome ladies. Get in touch if you want to get out for a day.
Armed with only a photo and white-knuckled fear @lukegholloway headed for the unknown. We paddled to the far side of Glacier Lake towards these huge drops. I’m no boater, but Luke is, with 10 years as a river guide, 40+ rivers and 100s of Class 5 drops I trusted him with my life and it was incredible to see him functioning in his element. Luke trusted me to stay in the boat and stick every paddle stroke he called with 110% effort. There was no other option. We were hundreds of miles from anyone or anything, just us and our one boat, Angelita Azul, at the end of 5 weeks of boating and rock climbing. 10 miles of Class 5 water lay ahead. We were tired and worn out but we threw down, stomped lines, dropped big waterfalls and completed the (we believe) first raft descent of Britnell Creek. 100 more miles and we arrived at the impressive Virginia Falls. We starved for a day while waited for our pickup, and then flew out of the mountains, concluding a trip I will never forget. .

Everyone loves a perfect roof crack. Desert Gold was at the top of @siebevanhee’s list. It’s hard to session a route when he just onsights for a warmup. Maybe next time for me. @thenorthface_climb
Peering into the abyss above the Devils Kitchen Sink Hole. What a day riding with incredible people, despite a true love of snow or stone we found a nice middle ground playing like kids on mountain bikes. #peddlepoweredrollercoaster @twallisch @maddie_bowman @onceuponaclimb @thenorthface #tnfathletesummit2017
If it’s snowing, at least the rock isn’t getting wet. We had a lot of good weather, but sometimes it meant cold with snow flurries. @lukegholloway trying to make sense of it all on The Source, the route we established on Tara Tower in the Cirque of the Unclimbables. @thenorthface_climb #maximropes @camp_usa #mountainvision
10 Years goes by fast. That’s a third of our lives. Thanks for loving me all these years @carmencrossj . I was feeling nostalgic so I dug up these photos of us with the VW. Thanks @mattkuehlphoto for the pics!
Purple stone. Awesome sunsets. Finally it stopped raining! Oh yeah! @thenorthface_climb @scarpana 📸 by @mattkuehlphoto
Keeping with #DLFA tradition. Maybe next time I’ll do a handstand. A great few days in #devilslake. This spot is worth going out of your way for, unlikely location, excellent climbing. #neverstopexploring #noplacetoofar 📸 by @mattkuehlphoto
Thank you @americanalpine and everyone for putting on the #devilslakecragginclassic it was a wet weekend but hanging at a new crag, moving a few hundred pounds of dirt and climbing some wide cracks sure has been a much needed distraction from the world. Don’t worry, real rock was climbed but a splitter that perfect and that wide demands a quick hit by OW connoisseur @mattkuehlphoto. Thabks everyone for coming out. #americanalpineclub #noplacetoofar @scarpana #neverstopexploring @camp_usa #mountainvision
Can we put one of these at basecamps around the world?! Staying fit and expeditioning do not always go hand in hand. @positivevibe75 moves like lightning where I fall like rocks. #moonboard @thenorthface_climb @thenorthface
Life's a gift. Live it up. 🤘🏼🙏🏼 Glad to have Uncle Stu and Big Skiy in the house last week.
It took 6 weeks filled with boating, hiking, and climbing topped off by 2 days low on food waiting for our pickup and then so much airbrushing, but we finally looked like we had some muscles by the end. #neverstopexploring #noplacetoofar #istilllookscrawnynexttoluke #seriousface @lukegholloway @thenorthface
Some crags never cease to amaze me, Clark Mountain will always be one of them. I love being back in #lasvegas, visiting these amazing spots to shake off the expedition malaise. It's awesome to see the new generation of strong young ladies like @kylieandmichaelclimb climbing on the dream lines 😳(Jumbo Pumping Hate 5.14a). At least I sent the warm ups! #noplacetoofar #neverstopexploring @thenorthface_climb
It's National Public Lands Day and you better believe we're stoked on all that surrounds us in #LasVegas These lands are why we live here, let's make sure we protect them. #NPLD #saveredrock @thenorthface
Splitter! Way back in the mountains. Riders On The Storm - 5.12 @lukegholloway @thenorthface_climb #neverstopexploring
"Fun's over! Back in the Boat!" @lukegholloway told us every morning. But that was when the good part started. @carmencrossj @colleenweeks @thenorthface #mountainvision #neverstopexploring #noplacetoofar
Some routes never get old! Driftin' (5 pitches, 11c) sure is one of them. I love the colors and geometry of this wall in #redrocks, so great to share it with @randyleavitt. The temps here are so good right now!! #maximropes @thenorthface
Which way is up?! Modern day navigation way out there on the Little Nahanni. @thenorthface
