First time on real rock

Working out the moves on real rock... He was honestly a little confused as to how it all works on real rock after only having climbed in a gym... I think he's doing rather well on slab...

And it all starts here

You have no idea how happy I was to see that my son takes to climbing well and is actually rather good, considering that he's not even 2 years old yet!

Practice for the real thing!

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Practice for the real thing!

Only a matter of time before he's stealing my rack to go on his own climbing adventures! Only problem so far seems to be that he prefers Zero's and Daddy likes his Aliens. This might be a problem...

Man, I wish I had mountains in MY backyard...

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Man, I wish I had mountains in MY backyard...

Juneau. What a super town. And if you like mountains, um, there's lots here! The prominant peak in the foreground is Mt. Juneau. Downtown Juneau is obviously at the foot of Mt. Juneau. The ridge running out to the right in the photo is Mt. Roberts/Gastineau Peak. Skyline in the back are the various Juneau Icefield peaks and ranges (Mendenhall towers and Rihno Peak being the most obvious features). I love my town! The town in the foreground, on the same side of the channel as the peak the the pic was taken from, is Downtown Douglas. And just think, it only takes a little over 2 hours to get to where this photo was taken from. All this and no traffic, smog, gang violence or freeways! What more could you want?

Riley in the morning.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Riley in the morning.

No lie, it's not even 6:30 in this photo. You gotta love Alaska in the summer! A 2 1/2 hour hike to the summit, a little bouldering, a wealth of excelent views and a good night's sleep later, Riley wakes up to head down Mt. Jumbo.

the only wall in town...

Average Rating = 3.50/5 the only wall in town...

there's really a lack of good rock to climb in Juneau. But for those who "know", there's this little wall that's about a five mile hike from the road. It's pretty tucked away, like a little hidden valley that only a few know about. It's worth the hike.

A little further on the road to nowhere.

Average Rating = 3.67/5 A little further on the road to nowhere.

Should have turned around... Should have turned around... I think there's a lesson to be learned here, but I'm not sure what it is. I'm going to try to finda better line up this overhang.

Some perspective

Average Rating = 3.25/5 Some perspective

Nick sets up the anchor on the 1st bolted route. To his right, there's the crack you follow on "lead it and win" and just off the frame further right would be "Pincushion".

Justin

Average Rating = 2.50/5 Justin

Ok, it's not a 5.10. It's not a death landing. It doesn't even have cool moves. But it's a fun climb and it was in the upper 30's when we climbed it. This is Justin on lead with me belaying.

And this goes... where?

Average Rating = 3.00/5 And this goes... where?

I tried to find a nice line through this system of cracks, but it didn't work out so well. The tree I was planning to rap off at the top was dead so I had to down climb and clean. This was extremely challenging due to the overhang...

Carcross desert

Average Rating = 2.50/5 Carcross desert

So there's this random desert in the middle of the Yukon. My wife and I stopped to check it out and take a few pictures. She took this one of me and I felt like I was a National Geographic photographer or something. It's just really weird because it's a desert but it's really cold and there's mountains you can see in the distance (not in this photo) with tons of snow on them. Not what you'd expect in a desert, you know?

Honeymoon in Fiji

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Honeymoon in Fiji

This is my wife (who climbs really well) and I on our honeymoon in Fiji. Like all the rest of the photos we got on our honey moon, it was taken by my wife (who's arm leads out in all the photos to the top or bottom right of the frame...) My dad used to own this house in Fiji so he said we could stay there for our honeymoon. Then he sold the house to some guy who tore it down to build a bigger one. Oh well. We were the last people to stay in the house...

I live in Alaska and it's pretty.

Average Rating = 3.70/5 I live in Alaska and it's pretty.

Ok, so it snows a lot more than I'd like it to. And you can't climb out doors in the winter. Oh, and even in the summer, it rains a lot. But then again, you get to look at stuff like this all the time... Not bad, eh? And (though this isn't from my living room window) I see stuff like this sitting on my couch looking out the window in the afternoon.

My wife took the shot and I wasn't there at the time. But this is Shiner doing a little recon in Chacos. Who needs stealth C4? :) Shiner used to be my climbing partner, but he went and moved to Idaho. Sucks, man. Maybe I'll have to visit him and climb City of Rocks...

Hosh in Africa

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Hosh in Africa

This was my first day in Hermanus. It's a cool little fishing village. The surf was REALLY good that day and we actually got almost to the top of one of the mountains before dark. But, when the sun went down and the Braai was lit, we scurried home for some Chutney covered goodness.
