Take me into the beautiful space between ridgeline and skyline.
Patiently waiting for them to get their crowns! 🌼 👑 🌼
It bloomed! The bees are happy and now there’s even a new century plant neighbor photobombing. 🙃
Time to dream bigger dreams. 😌
This shot is of my first lead climb! There are many hidden (or maybe not so hidden) elements that make me smile. First, the fact that I took my phone out to take the photo while still being a bit nervous although I was safe and anchored in. 😅 Second, the fact I was hanging on to the rock with my other hand. 🤫 (Zoom into my sunglasses to see.) Third, the fact that Kate is celebrating with me from the ground. 🙌
Done any of these?
Thank you! Let’s grow together in sport and in life.
//Roam On!// We made our way through a boulder strewn field complete with cholla, saguaro, Mormon tea, and brittle bush. I enjoy the approach to a climb. It’s a time to take deep breaths, relax in the surroundings, and enjoy the stillness.
//Let the countdown begin!// It’s that time of the year to give back to the crags we love so much. Join us at the Beardsley Boulder Pile for a clean up on Saturday (3/10). There will be some breakfast snacks, all the equipment to help clean up, and a raffle. All of this followed by bouldering! Sign up with the link in my bio. ✌️ Rad shot by: @kwormrad
//It came in 3s// A celebration of all of us leading! The phrase of encouragement throughout the day? Small steps…big breaths! Definitely kept repeating this to myself until I clipped that first bolt.
When the moon is SO bright you can see your shadow! 👋 I was running back to the trailhead when there was a dip in the mountains. The moon was still rising and the opening allowed me to see the moon clearly. I stopped and basked in the moonlight. I may have thrown in a dance move or two. 😁🎶
Take this pink ribbon off my eyes…🎶 Tonight was all about letting go of fear and asking for strength to do bold things.
It was a sketchy flake…but I persevered! It’s all about that geologic time. It was there for many many years and it most likely has many many years to go.
And now to fall asleep with the stars.
I don’t think planning has helped me at all…so let my plans unravel!
For now I’d like to explore new places and keep growing in my climbing. More courses and workshops. But most of all, must put it all into practice back home. Have a course recommendation? I’d love to hear about it!
And you’re sure this cam is going to hold me? 😂
In the glory of it all! 🙌
Can’t wait to get out and practice all that we learned this past weekend! 1️⃣Here’s @kwormrad cleaning her route after putting in all the pieces of pro.
2️⃣It’s me cleaning and our instructor checking my pro placement decisions. The first one was a little iffy and he showed me a better spot for it. Slowly, but surely I’ll develop an eye for this sort of thing.
