Climbaton, my first, and probably the only marathon I'll participate in.
Team Weirdos completed a total of 42.195 routes in 1hour 23 minutes! (Decided early that we were not after the win, but chionging to finish as if we were anyway)
The real struggle of climbaton day was waking up at 630am after only 3 hours of sleep. Had to remind each other the Climbaton tshirts were worth waking up for. Glad we did, because thanks to @climbCentral, @imprimateur and I finally have two very cool sets of #coupletees! 😄
We'll be back!
Long overdue reunion with my first climbing buddy @lurch141! We started out on the walls at Penn and got our belay & lead certifications together. I went with him on my first outdoor and ice trips too. Good to catch up and climb dude! #rockclimbing#climbingbuddies
Throwback to the day we learnt from Giulia, the Italian word for 'allez' (French for 'jiayou'), and realised why Italians don't use it themselves, at least not in climbing circles 😂 Hearing Jason say it made me fall off the wall IMMEDIATELY! Don't know how to spell it, but it sounds very much like 'die'. 🔊 Sound on
It's always fun climbing with a good friend!
Here are two very inspiring climbers coming back from El cap and just seeing this pic is such a joy! 👇🏼Like & tag your climbing buddy Bellow👇🏼. • • • • • •

Yosemite National Park "Okay, my turn to gush (see @alexhonnold recent post). The last time I tried to free climb this section of El Cap it took me seven years. This time it was about three weeks. Yes, this route was much easier and I learned a lot on the Dawn Wall. But I think the main reason for the fast progress was that Alex always seemed to push our perceptions of what’s possible. Once again I felt lucky to be drafting off the worlds boldest and most badass rock climber. I was also exceedingly impressed by his willingness to pass up worlds of professional opportunity to come toil on the wall. Fame hasn’t spoiled Alex. He is still as core as they come. #thebromanceliveson "

This year hasn’t been all smooth-going for us, but I’m glad we managed to ride out the storm nevertheless. Giving each other support and picking the other up when one is down, partnership is a big part of marriage isn’t it?
Happy birthday to my favourite person! Thanks for being my support. Let’s continue to embrace our lives ahead with a big smile. And of course, to more climbing adventures together 🤗

I’m so thankful for the humans in my life who continue to include me and check on me since my broken arm has had such an impact on my active life and, therefore, my mental health. You all know who you are - you’re wonderful and I love you all so dearly ❤️❤️ #climbingbuddies#community

Have we figured out the route yet? So far we’ve been free climbing the front face. Maybe we could find an easier route around back? Or would that spoil all the fun? #cantdoitalone#climbingbuddies
Wouldn't you LOVE having this 3 floors climbing wall at your home?? 😍 - Story bellow 👇. 😁 Don't forget to follow:➡ @JUGHANGER 😎 • • • • • •

"Dinner parties at this modern Bozeman home are often paused momentarily by guests who can’t resist the climbing wall that fills the three-story stairwell. An avid outdoorsman, the husband and builder designed the recreational feature but conceded to his interior designer wife when it came to hue tones. “My condition about the wall was no bright neon for the holds, so he chose blue, silver and black in keeping with the color scheme,” says his wife/interior designer."

We’ve shared tents for weeks at a time, runs and marathons, pee bottles, poo bags, tears and joy, dances, and the summits of Lobuche, Island Peak, and Mount Everest. The level of intimacy I’ve had with this girl is unparalleled 😂. I’m so lucky that you walked in to my dance class by mistake in 2014. Since then, look at all the memories we’ve built together. Nothing ever happens by mistake!
To the smart, humble, caring, kind, and beautiful @monakshahab happpyyy birthday!!!!! I love youu tentieee. If you have a Mona in your life, keep her close and go do some crazy things together!
Sunset summit! In case you hadn’t guessed by now myself and @matt_helliker made it to the top of Camilotto Pellissier (8a/+), first British free ascent of this epic route!
This route was first opened in 1967 by Mauro and Minuzzo, later to be free climbed by Mauro Bubu Bole in 2003. It amazed me that this line climbed so perfectly and I’m in awe of the vision these first ascensionists had!
@matt_helliker and I agreed that an attempt of the whole route free from the ground warranted this grade with the effort for each pitch, especially arriving at the 6th bouldery pitch cold and tired. But who knows as alpine climbing has a nature and difficulty of its own. I’m proud to have done such an amazing route as my first one in the dolomites and on the Tre Cime.
I couldn’t have asked for a better partner on this route! This wasn’t about an individual ascent but working together as a team to both get to the top and down again successfully! Thank you for letting me join you on this adventure, psyched for the next one!
Aaaaand the moment we were able to see the top of the mountain 🙌🏼🌄 It was SO cold and SO windy and we chose the hardest route so I am SO proud of us both and the three dogs. That was a miiiiiiighty big hill. @mattresstomaison and I just laughed and laughed and laughed all the way up and then all the way back down again - perfect climbing companion right there and I cannot wait for our next mission. Neither of us moaned once either, we were too busy being SO bloody pleased with ourselves. We didn't touch the @slimmingworld friendly snacks I so lovingly made us and that we carried the whole way because once we got to the top it was SO cold that I couldn't unzip my bag, so windy and wet that we couldn't actually see and we agreed that an egg muffin wouldn't have handled the elements 😂🍳SO we had a car picnic at the end instead 👌🏼🙌🏼 #teamwork#sensibleseptember#bodymagic#climbingmountains#climbingbuddies#workout#selfie#nomakeup#steptember#gettingourstepsin#slimmingworld#swlife#penyfan
