Explored a new-to-me climbing gym today, which had some fun challenges like this footwork practice with no hand holds. Featuring: my legs; my @la__sportiva Solutions; some random dude telling me the order. 2x speed, 🎥 by @evanleahquinn ! #katclimbsthings #climbing #bouldering #slabsunday #boulderingbabes #ladyclimbers #trustyourfeet

Heading home after an incredible day of climbing and gathering content for @theboltlineproject at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch, Arkansas 😊 #homeiswhereyouparkit
Government shut down and then rain. The odds were definitely not in our favor today, so we opted for some training in the gym instead. Climbing 5.12 won’t come easy for my cookie eating ass. Get swoll. 💪🏻 P.C. @haley.sawtelle

Decisions - With on-sight multipitch trad climbs there are lots of decisions — how much pro to bring and what sizes, when to place protection, selecting the right size of pro for a crack (hopefully on your first attempt), judging that your placement is good, and when to build an anchor based upon the gear you have left and what little you know of the climb ahead. Making these decisions is a beautiful combination of experienced judgement, intuition, and knowing yourself as a climber. With this type of climbing you don’t have the luxury of over-thinking, second guessing, or judging yourself. If you do, you are in trouble. Instead, you commit to the decision and if something doesn’t work out, you wing it and make it work. There just isn’t room for worrying and ruminating. This is one aspect of climbing I wish I could carry over more thoroughly into my everyday life. What good do the “what-ifs” and “fears of screwing up” serve me when trying to make a life-decision? They don’t, but somehow life-decisions seem so much more complicated and muddled - but are they really? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 📸 @adammckibben •••••••••••••• Climber @ co-owner Climb-On Maps @trekkingstef ••••••••• #climbing #climb #climbinglife #climbrocks #climbing_is_my_passion #climbingisbliss #liveclimbrepeat #climbinginspiration #womenwhoclimb #flashfoxy #girlswhoclimb #ladyclimbers #womenofclimbing #sheadventures #rockclimbingwomen #womenonlead #womenwhoexplore #mountaingirls #outdoorwomen #dirtbagdarling #forceofnature #wonderfulwildwomen #everyonesoutdoors #liveoutdoors #getoutstayout #optoutside #alwaysoutside #embracetheoutdoors

Miss that place, miss that chica! This is Ola, and she’s amazing. We met in Siurana last year and pretty much became friends instantly. She’s polish, like me, but currently living in Spain and crushing hard on rock! She’s also an amazing graphic designer, mango and banana porridge maker, perfect van mate and chalkbag master. Wanna check them out? Go to @scaua.climbing to see what cool fabrics she’s using!
Happy FriYAY! @alicehafer topping out and demonstrating how we all feel about climbing this weekend. STOKED. 🙌🏻😂
It's cool to climb❄️🏔 Check out @mountaingirl8 for more adventures like this🤘 💪: @mountaingirl8 📷: @home.in.the.mountains
8 days on without a rest day here on the Western Slope. I’m exhausted and ready to leave, but also really in love with this little forgotten corner of the West. Headed to Utah for a couple days, and by comparison some sandstone trad is seeming really mellow and comfortable right now. Thanks to @travelwithdaniel for the photo and for being a great new friend.
Coming in at my #5 pick would have to be a throwback to summer 2012 when we adventured out to this lil boulder in Olympia, Washington. Memories of climbing here are what make it stand out for me - we bushwhacked our way high and low to get to this one and only boulder named She Bear. On this trip in particular we got to take Ben’s little bro Noah with us for his first time climbing outside! Being in our home town with family solidifies this as a special memory, even if you do have to keep your eyes peeled for hunters nearly shootin’ ya on the approach... 😳🤷‍♀️ #classicolympia #shebear #truckbedboulderers
Where there is crack, there you’ll find @ladylockoff. If you’ve ever met Irene, then you know that she is easy to love. She is a genuinely good human with great eyelashes and a nice ass. #Tbt to her 30 pitch birthday challenge. She’s totes cray.
Have you ever taken a trail that looks promising and then it dead-ends? Those are what we call “damn-it” trails 😮😄. We don’t like “damn-it” trails - not only do they suck away time, energy, and patience, they also unnecessarily damage the environment. The more people lured onto a “damn-it” trail the more pronounced it becomes, which then lures more people - a wicked damn-it cycle. We mark these trails on the maps with a big, fat, red X so you can avoid them! We also show if there are multiple paths to get to a climbing wall and rate their difficulty. There may actually be a better, easier trail from a completely different approach! Climbers trails are necessary to get to where we need to go, but we also need to recognize our impact. Literally every footstep step counts in the delicate desert. Together let’s end useless social trails by finding the correct path and staying on the trail. Even jumping off to the side of a trail and making a faint path will invite others to do the same. Next thing you know there are now two trails side-by-side (many times both equally crappy). Or if you try to cut up and do a short cut, it might just create a new damn-it trail when you discover that path is no good. Every person, every step, really does make a difference! Yes, sometimes the trails really suck, and when it is steep, slick, and loose and you are carrying heavy gear, you want to avoid it and forge a new path. We know, the temptation is real. ••••••••••••••••••••• 📸 @ladylockoff ••••••••••••••••••• #theclimberspact #leaveitbetter #adoptacrag #protectoubliclands #trashfreetrailsproject #adventurelikeyougiveadamn #preservethegood #climbing #climb #climbinglife #climbrocks #theclimbinglife #climbing_is_my_passion #climbingisbliss #liveclimbrepeat #C_l_i_m_b #climbinginspiration #womenwhoclimb #flashfoxy #climblikeagirl #girlswhoclimb #ladyclimbers #womenofclimbing #sheadventures #rockclimbingwomen #liveoutdoors #getoutstayout #optoutside

I’m organizing all of the climbing photos I took last year and since I haven’t been out shooting in 2018 yet, I’ve decided to post some throwbacks to rekindle some much needed inspiration. @haley.sawtelle is a funny climber. She takes bigger risks and makes scarier moves in bouldering than in sport climbing. She’s WAY stronger than she thinks she is and I really hope she gets this new job so she can come out with us on all the weekends. Here she is leading a 5.9 (or something like that) in her baby monkey shoes up at Cannibal. 🐒
Muito legal ter mandado esta via já na segunda entrada 🙂Tentei ela a vista e não consegui por um detalhe... Não me achei na passada do tetinho 😒 Mas na segunda entrada foi tudo certo. Show! - Voltando a fazer volume para recomeçar os projetos pesados 💪 Via Epitáfio - (VI+ - 5.10D US - 6B+ FR) - Very cool to have sent this route already in the second go 🙂 I tried on sight and I did not get close... I did not find myself in the back of the little roof 😒But on the second go it was all right. Show! - Going back to several routes to restart the heavy projects 💪 Epitáfio route - (VI+ - 5.10D US - 6B+ FR) . . 😍@fivetenbr @ospreybrasil @ospreypacks @4climb @solo.vestuario.br @buffalowax @santabarbaraimports @agarrassauro 😍 #buffalo_wax #4climb #sauro #solo #vistasolo #solobr #fivetenbr #stretchyourlimits #fiveten #santabarbaraimports #ospreybrasil #atletaosprey #ospreypacks #MochilaUltraLeve #mulheresqueescalam  #escaladabrasil #gooutside #canaloff #timetoclimb #girlpower #iwant2inspire #womenonlead #ladyclimbers #womenrockclimbing #climbgirl #womenwhoclimb #wildernessbabes #girlswhoclimb #climblikeagirl
Such focus! Much determination! Focusing on training, climbing as much as possible, and crushing it with badass ladies this year 💪
Desert times on the brain...scheming the next trip 😉 @captainkirksnipples.13 got this photo of me doing an end of the day lap up a 0.75 slot at sabbatical wall. Oh I miss you desert! In the meantime it’s about to dump here in BC ❄️ and I’m gonna ski so hard 🙌🏼⛷
"Fall down seven times, get up eight." Who knew those Zen monks were avid rock climbers? They understood that climbing wasn't just about getting to the top of the rock, but the process it takes to get there. 👣 I think sometimes we get into the mindset that we should be able to send everything within a couple goes, but there's something compelling about having a project to return to, like a secret treasure to unlock when all the beta is honed and your body is pushed to its limits. 🧘🏻‍♀️🧗🏻‍♀️🗝✨
Great day hiking, even though I got ditched for poke afterwards. Love these goobs ❤️🐾
Another hiking day. After I became a climber I sort of stopped hiking just for the fun of it. If it didn’t include climbing at the end, I wasn’t interested. I forgot how much I enjoy just hiking, and I forgot what it’s like to hike without a heavy AF pack on my back (even if I usually make someone else carry my rope.) Today was really nice, and my back feels great. Thanks for asking.
Confidence - Confidence is complicated, a recipe with many ingredients, kind of like a soup. The broth (base) stems from our childhood and societal messages, the vegetables are akin to experiences, the energy/carbohydrates (noodles or rice) is like repeated practice, and the meat is the messages we keep telling ourselves. Like a soup, all of these things feed off each other. Our broth is weak if the messages from our childhood (or society) were continuously negative, the soup isn’t nourishing if we limit the vegetables (experiences), the energy it proves is limited if we don’t practice, and the meat is rotten and all gristle if we continue to tell ourselves (and believe) the negative messages thrown at us. But with work, experimentation, and awareness, we can adjust the recipe. The broth of a difficult childhood never goes away, but we can decrease its influence with all of the other things that are in our control. Increase the variety and amount of vegetables (experiences), increase the carbs (practice), and then shift from bad meat to better meat by asking, “What have I learned?” instead of saying, “I keep fucking up.” Then maybe, just maybe our hard work will result in a flavor that is good, healthy, and uniquely ours. ••••••••••••••••••••• 📸 @adammckibben ••••••••• Climber: @trekkingstef co-owner Climb-On Maps ••••••••• #womenwhoclimb #flashfoxy #climblikeagirl #girlswhoclimb #ladyclimbers #womenofclimbing #sheadventures #rockclimbingwomen #womenonlead #womenwhoexplore #mountaingirls #outdoorwomen #likeamountaingirl #dirtbagdarling #climbing #climb #climbinglife #climbrocks #theclimbinglife #climbing_is_my_passion #climbingisbliss #liveclimbrepeat #C_l_i_m_b #climbinginspiration #unitedwesend #forceofnature #liveoutdoors #alwaysoutside

Love love loved getting back on some rock climbs and catching up with good friends ❤️ I may have been a little gimpy but my foot did great and my elbow is... improving 😂 Feeling grateful that my prematurely old person body let me jump on some #enchantedrock classics! 📷 by @andrewcfoy on the opening overhanging jams of Raw Meat.

This is a weird angle, and I tried really hard to straddle that volume to get a no hands rest... it didn’t work. Just two days ago I couldn’t even get close to sending this route, tonight I made it three quarters of the way. Progress. I have @gnarlygirlfitness to thank for the high stoke and good catch. Gideeup.

School crunch time means I have this place on my mind to dream about and use as motivation 😉hoping to return this spring for some try hard. But mostly just for this landscape, the best buds, and the best splitters 🤗☀️🌵photo by one such best bud @cuin_the_cartographer
So proud of @climberbelle for absolutely crushing her first 5.10 trad lead this weekend! The overhanging ring locks on Top Choice didn’t keep her from fighting her way to the top. So strong Heather!!! It was such a treat to climb out at #enchantedrock after a four month hiatus from outdoor climbing- like a breath of fresh air ❤️• • • • • #womenonlead #flashfoxy #tradisrad #rei #optoutside #forceofnature #ladyclimbers #andshesdopetoo #tradclimbing #fortheloveofclimbing #aacgram #grippedmagazine #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #iloveclimbing #crackclimbing #womenofclimbing #sheadventures #sheexplores #gwcmember #climblikeagirl #mountaingirls #outdoorwomen

From a fun day in the park this past summer, Alex (@alex_simone88 ) mastering her beta for The Marble Direct.
It’s been almost a week since I came back from Spain. Crazy, how quickly can life change! From waking up at 10, having breakfast in the van, climbing all day and laughing all evenings I am back to working full time in London. Surprisingly, I actually enjoy both of those things, it’s just interesting how very different they are. I guess life is all about finding balance, right? Photo by @james.blackhole from one of the most amazing 7a’s I’ve ever been on, at Pared Blaca in Chulilla.

Remember to take a moment to breathe. Happy Sunday! Hopefully you’re all off your phones and in the mountains 🏔🌲🙏🏼
New Jack City with some awesome #ladyclimbers , Monica (@monnsolo ) and Julie (@byd3sign ). Got videos on a couple of warm-ups at Boy Scout Wall before moving on to some sweet climbs.

I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to climb solo today or not. I decided to go for it, and flashed some easier problems, and then had my ass handed to me on the prow. I’m happy to be back at this sport, even if my weird face here doesn’t show it! #katclimbsthings #climbing #bouldering #boulderingbabes #ladyclimbers #queerclimbers #womenwhoclimb #womenthatclimb
I didn’t want to take any chances climbing on potentially damp rocks today, so @ladylockoff and I did a quick hike. We ran into some climbers headed into the canyon and after telling them the rocks were definitely still wet, they turned around and hiked out behind us. They are decent people. Skipping one weekend of climbing won’t kill me if it means protecting and preserving this incredible place I call home. Happy Saturday friends!
I’ve been climbing for over 10 years and bouldering has been on my to do list for many of them. Although I dabbled in bouldering off and on, it was Joshua Tree that really drove me to it. If you read the article I mentioned in my previous post (“Ode to the Soul Crushing Trail” - link in bio for a bit and link listed at end of this post) you might get an inkling about why I started to boulder. Although most of the climbing approaches aren’t as terrifying as what I describe in that article, many of the approaches to roped-climbs involve extensive boulder hopping. Day after day of mapping and going up these boulder fields was exhausting. On our mapping rest days we wanted to climb, but we didn’t feel like navigating the boulder fields, so instead we walked 10 feet from our van and we bouldered ! ••••• spotters @dynamitestarfish and @sheclimb ••••• https://www.wyldergoods.com/blogs/journal/ode-to-the-soul-crushing-trail ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 📸 @climbsrock ••••••••••••••••••• #climbing #climb #climbinglife #climbrocks #theclimbinglife #climbing_is_my_passion #climbingisbliss #liveclimbrepeat #C_l_i_m_b #climbinginspiration #womenwhoclimb #flashfoxy #climblikeagirl #girlswhoclimb #ladyclimbers #womenofclimbing #sheadventures #rockclimbingwomen #womenwhoexplore #mountaingirls #outdoorwomen #likeamountaingirl #dirtbagdarling #bouldering #joshuatreenationalpark #forceofnature
