|just a few days of rest (ish) and... we're bored
I also took one last trip up the North Face of Longs Peak to help my good buddy Andy Mann set up an anchor and rap into the Diamond to shoot some really cool images of Mayan Smith-Gobot on 'Hearts and Arrows' 12a, what seems to be the new Diamond favorite - nice one Chris and Bruce! He came away with some kick ass shots as usual and I got to spend the day relaxing on the summit. Not bad.
I came down to Boulder a few days ago, eager to get in a few gym sessions in preparation for the next trip. As it turns out, weeks of hiking, altitude, climbing mostly cracks, dihedrals and dead vertical terrain is not super kick ass for your sport climbing game. I got my ass kicked in the gym a little bit for sure, but after a couple days I'm feeling it come back.
Otherwise, I'm packing up my life, getting ready to head to Idaho and Wyoming for a month on a bolting mission. I'm super stoked about this trip, the areas, the people, the potential. Should be awesome! I'll be making a fun short video for Climb On! along the way, so keep an eye out for that sometime next month. Also, I'm interviewing bad ass Alli Rainey for my next 5Q's - I'm really looking forward to her answers, I think it'll be a good one! check back for it soon.
Alright... time to pack the truck!
