iโ€™m yearning to be pumped out of my mind, to scream at my forearms to not give up, and to fight through a sea of finger jug paddling. completely athletic style of climbing. i canโ€™t wait for my favorite crag of all time to finally thaw just a lil so i can continue ticking off more steep sandstone classics. @krisugarriza did me a solid capturing me on my trip last october. thanks buddy for the ๐Ÿ“ธ!!

holler to my badass bestie @alexis_live_and_love_it ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ it was inspiring to watch you work the moves on sprayathon. I love how you pick projects based on your OWN analysis of the movement, minus other people spraying and giving their own opinion. hell yeah. i miss rifle and i miss you. please come skiing with me soon and come back to rifle next summer to crush this route :)

every climber has that special crag they keep coming back to; that special crag which gets to the core of why they climb. for me, thatโ€™s the motherlode at the red. thanks @krisugarriza for capturing me on my send of the undertow classic โ€œresurrectionโ€ (5.12c / 7b+). one of the king โ€˜tow lines! the route begins with four bolts of bouldering and ends with spicy runout endurance climbing. already thinking of when iโ€™ll be back to tick off more โ€˜lode classics! ๐Ÿ‚โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbing_is_my_passion #climbing #bouldering #sportclimbing #training #athlete #kentucky #nutrition #trainingforclimbing #optoutside #redrivergorge #rrgcc

โ€œsingularityโ€ (5.12c) has unique flow. the first two bolts climb a boulder that ends with a difficult mantel. after a rest, the remainder of the route follows an insanely pumpy overhanging arch. thanks @markadamrohr for capturing me on my send of this red river gorge classic and @lazy_climber for the catch ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ฏ

that's a wrap for the season! see ya next summer, rifle. here i am "resting" (lol) in a painful left knee bar on "deity" 13a. four bolts of pumpy climbing precede this brief shake-out; the remaining six moves are the crux boulder problem, comprising a full extension reach, back flagging, a drop knee, and compression climbing between sidepulls. the route requires consistent body tension and near-maximal power for the final push to the chains. the feet are a little "make believe" so most of your weight is on your upper body. i'm forced to skip the last draw which adds a strong element of spice considering you're not too far off the ground. "deity" climbs like a boulder problem. it's a short route. definitely my anti-style, definitely a slap to the face. after snagging the one hang i hope to take it down next season! thanks colton for the ๐Ÿ“ธ

it's crazy how fast the season has flown by. i'm enjoying cooler temps now but first snowfall is definitely on the horizon. while wrapping up a rifle season i'm turning my focus to training endurance on crimps for the red. this translates to repeaters on the finger board, circuits on the moon board, lapping boulders in the gym and feet-on endurance campusing. im grateful to have two weeks this fall season to devote to steep sandstone projects and im hoping that my crag-specific training will pay off
