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
YEAH! Back to back World War Champs. @lukegholloway taking me on 'The Circuit' at Donner Summit.
I'm proud to be apart of this team. This isn't about politics or which side of the isle you sit on, this is about science and facts. I am proud to work with a big company who shares my values. This is about working together to protect this planet, progressing and moving forward in a sustainable way so that we have a planet to share with the children we may not yet have. @thenorthface #neverstopexploring
Keep your eyes peeled, a big one is lurking about the neighborhood.
Truckee style approaching. I should never have put my shoes on, flip flops would have been a better idea. #noplacetoofar #neverstopexploring
Afternoon light at one of the most spectacular crags in Tahoe - The Snowshed Wall. When I returned to climbing in college this was one of the first places I went. I remember staring at this route, Monkey Paws (12a) and it's harder, more legendary neighbor Panic in Detroit (12c). It felt great to dispatch both of these old school test pieces. #sohardin1978 #stillsohard .

Steeper than it looks. Steep Climb Named Desire (5.13d)
It's nice to see new cliffs and test out new perspectives. #neverstopexploring
It can be hard to tell which way is up on The hardest route in the world (in 1979). Growing up climbing in South Lake Tahoe I sure never thought I'd get to try it, and make some good links. Maybe not this season, but I'll be back. @jessehuey and I had a great time doing some bone smashing, finger wrenching, abdominal destroying crack climbing on The Grand Illusion (FA by #tonyyaniro 13c 1979) .
Hello out there?!?!
The time has come to amble about and stretch the legs. It's been a busy, crazy, hectic winter. I'm looking forward to just going climbing...as if that's not what I've been doing....
There are some rock climbs that just beg repeating. I can never say no to a hot lap up the Original Route on the Rainbow Wall. I was proud to insight this route 7 years ago, since I have watched and helped many friends do the same. Good work @sambpiper 💪🏼👌🏻👊🏼#neverstopexploring
