I was so scared of going straight down the slope you can spot in front of me that I lost my ass🙃
Why is outside soooo warm in these days??? . . I remeber my coldest night. Emergency bivaque in 4000m, just in light cover no sleeping bag, no sleeping mat, freezing from the iceclimb...with just one wish a bit of warmth and survive till the sun comes up. So be careful what you wish for ;) . . Next cold adventure sooon with...@anetkalouzecka #uzvim #outdoor #adventure #climbers #frozen #time #wishes #girls #who #iceclimb #climbing #view
If you take a really close look you can see me ice climbing here while @ahutchins belays. Increasingly keen to goto NZ to do more with @adventureconsultants this year!

This is @the_real_don_nguyen , the founder of @climbersofcolor . Don is a badass. He was is a guide for @alpineascents , an elk hunting guide in Montana, and arguably most interestingly, he starred in an episode of Naked and Afraid in Namibia. * I first met Don at a WFR course in Skamokawa, Washington. I asked him about his career and his path getting there. He was born and raised in rural Oklahoma in a Vietnamese community. He told me how hard it was to find mentors in the outdoors and break out of that environment. Once he started working for Alpine Ascents, he experienced a lot of pushback from parts of his family, because of heritage and because "climbing isn’t something that Vietnamese do". * Once Don launched Climbers of Color, Outside Magazine wrote an article (link in my bio) about the program. It has good feedback, but also attracted the attention of white supremacists. The internet became littered with racist comments and some really messed up commentary about the program. Don began getting racist calls and threats at his work. This hasn't swayed Don in the slightest. It inspired @team_intrepid to drive over 40 hours and volunteer our time. * Don has an audacious goal, and people naturally are attracted to people getting shit done. * 48.77° N, 121.81° W * #climbing #climbinglife #mountaineering #travel #climbingphotography #glacier #climbingisbliss #climbinglovers #ClimbingMountains #climbinggirl #climbon #iceclimb #epic #climbinginspiration #climbingtrip #climbinggear #climbingismypassion #climbingmag #ice #climbingpicturesofinstagram #climbingshoes #climbingpics #mtbaker #climbersofcolor #climbingaddict #moutnains #climbingframe #climbingworldwide #climbon #explore2restore

On our way up the second mountain, heading towards Mont Blanc via The Trois Monts route. The sunrise over Du Tacul was absolutely gorgeous, and needed!! I got freezing cold right before because we had to stand still in the dark for a little while and wait for 3 guys who were ahead of us that wanted to turn around and descend. Exactly why I don't know, but I spoke to one of them the evening before, and he told me that he was very nervous and that he didn't feel quite good. It's not always safe or easy to walk outside the tracks, and when it's so extremely steep, you just have to wait and slowly overtake/let someone pass you. If you look closely, you can see the tracks and spot two other teams of 3 coming after us🏔️🌄
This what the crater of Mount Taranaki, New Zealand, looks like off season... absolutely mindblowing! 😁❄😮 This is just below the summit, we had an incredible day.

It was bit challenging finding the route up on Mt. Baker. Each time we got over a crevasse another one opened up. Sorry boys and girls but climbing season up there is done for the season unless you willing to carry some ladders up. . . . . . . #mtbaker #mtbakersnoqualmienationalforest #mtbakerwilderness #mounteneering #mountenering #iceclimbing #iceclimb #climbing #crevasse #crevasses

#Repost from @eliteclimb with @regram.app ... That is the real pro training💪💪💪 Repost from @zacst.julesclimbing Building the base strength back up. The figure four traverse is a nice addition to the new wall... Last year I focused on the amount of time I spent on the wall. This year will be more focused on moves made. So for example, last year I would do a 5 min warm up, then three 20 min sessions moving around the wall. This year will be more like a 10 min warmup, then four 100 move sessions.

It may be August but dont let that fool you, Ice Climbing season is only 3 months away! Whether you are in New Hampshire, Colorado or Florida you have no excuse, get in the climbing gym and keep your training regiment going! . . 📸: @rockmerica getting some Dry Ice Tool training in at @coralcliffs in Florida! #DryIceTools #FurnaceIndustries #ItsAlwaysIceSeason
✏️ His climbing is not flashy; each swing of the axe is movement distilled to its simplest form. He doesn’t kick at the ice. Rather, it is a precise but forceful tap of the crampons driving in his front-points without shattering the thin sheet of ice—the only thing attaching him to the wall. Matt stops to hammer in a piton, fifteen feet directly overhead. It seems he is attached to the wall by nothing—a fall would drop him right on my head. You wouldn’t know by his body language though, which suggests he could be standing in line at Cold Smoke Coffee back in Bozeman.✏️ **Sorry, @matt_cornell25 , this is probably embarrassing you.** Matt is a super humble dude, but also a stone-cold crusher on ice.
Watching @yogabird19 send the final few moves of our most technical ice pitch of the morning. Watching her come up over the last feature as the sun was rising in the background was all the reward I needed for the weekend. Look at that smile! Pure bliss! Nice climb sister!

In 1939, accomplished German alpinist Hans Moldenhauer fled Hitler’s Third Reich to travel across the US, eventually finding a home in Spokane, Washington. In the following years, Hans pioneered many notable climbs across the Western states, but the Cabinet Mountains held a special place in his heart—perhaps they reminded him of his beloved German alps. In the 1943 edition of the American Alpine Journal, Hans writes of the Cabinets, “They hold all my mountaineer’s heart wishes for: from snow and ice to rock face, talus slope, and ridge—the wilderness of the forests, and brisk air above timberline; lakes, alpine meadows, solitude.”
We had so much rain on Friday night that the waterfall was visible from the lake! In the winter it freezes solid and grows - where I learned to #iceclimb with my brother! #climbing #Vermont #iceclimber #summerscoping #winterlines #endlesswinter #Poultney #LakeStCatherine
Roopkund during the premonsoon period, is one of the most exciting treks, with an ever changing landscape, terrains, views of the Greater Himalayas, sudden changes in weather, snow, hail, ice, rocks all the challenges one can face The hike to Junargali is a daunting task, but the views are incredible #himalayas #uttarakhand #roopkund #roopkundtrek #junargalli #junargali #lohajung #mountaineer #climb #climbing #snowy #snowclimb #iceclimb #incredibleindia #incrediblehimalayas #incredibleuttarakhand #trekking #trippyhippys #mountainlife
——back to a little writing today———-Matt heads straight away for the wild-looking icicle hanging from the broad curtain. It terminates tantalizingly close to the snow, but just out of reach. At the overhanging rock face behind the icicle, he sets his picks on an in-cut edge, pulls onto the rock, and begins climbing. At twenty feet he gains the ledge and squeezes behind the ice pillar, emerging on the other side. This is standard practice when climbing detached ice columns. By threading the rope behind the pillar, you effectively create a protection point in case of a fall. Should the ice catastrophically fail while you are on it, you will theoretically fall free of the pillar and perhaps survive. Or maybe the damn thing just takes you with it anyhow. ———————————- Matt carefully picks his way up the thin column, an ever longer arc of rope flapping freely in the wind below. He finally pulls onto the curtain above, places a screw, and finishes the climb on a solid apron of ice. —————————— I follow the pitch, and am delighted to see that Matt is right. The steep rock and skinny icicle are easier than they look. But still, I think—it’s a stout climb. It’s got to be WI6, M5. “What do you make of the grade?”, I shout to Matt. “Doesn’t really need a mixed grade in my mind, the rock section was pretty short. How about we just call it WI5?” ———————————- I pause, and consider Matt’s words. For those unfamiliar with the medium, WI5 is continuously vertical “expert” ice. Often, a free-hanging icicle will get a Water-Ice grade of WI6, and a mixed grade as well, depending on the steepness of the rock climbed to access the ice. For a frame of reference, an M5 mixed climb requires roughly the same effort as a 5.10 rock climb.———————————- “Well, I guess that’s fair, Matt. How about this week we grade like Cheesmond and Blanchard with their infamous Canadian alpine 5.9 A2? “I’m with you” Matt replied, “It’s all WI5.”————————————*this pic is of @zach_turner following Matt’s first ascent pitch later the same day.
