Throwing it back to the time I wanted to go to the Great White Icicle Super Bowl party, but didn’t own any ice gear. Welded and bolted up this custom ice tool. What do you think @blackdiamond ?
Last fall @mattsegal invited me on a impromptu trip to Kentucky. I had been wanting to try the legendary Steve Petro finger crack “Welcome to Ol’ Kentuck” 5.13a, for years. Matt tried to get me to leave the trad gear at home (“Damnit Earle, this is a sport climbing trip!”) but I was able to convince the crew to make a brief detour out to the obscure crag that this crack lives at. 📷 @andywickstrom #crackclimbing @eddiebauer @blackdiamond @edelweissropes_usa
Looking down the splitter pitch on the project @livingstonaaron and I tried this spring. This crack is overhanging .4s and .3s, two pitches off the deck. Desert climbing doesn’t get any better! #crackclimbing #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer @blackdiamond @edelweissropes_usa
Nothing like starting the day with a morning lap off the Chief. Was bummed not to make it up to Squamfjord this summer, hoping the planets align for a trip next year 🤞🤞 #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer #hikeandfly #squamish
What’s the hardest chimney climb in the world? We have 5.14 offwidth. Is there a 5.14 chimney? Is that even possible?? This 400’ monster is out there waiting #offwidth #crackclimbing
@livingstonaaron following a steep pitch on a project we climbed last spring. This four-pitcher is wild and steep, no doubt she’s gonna be a doozy...I’ve been out of commission for a while with some seriously lame health problems, but once I’m back in the game, this rig is on the top of my list! #crackclimbing @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure @blackdiamond @edelweissropes_usa
Flannel season is THE season. Throwing it back to one of my favorite pitches- “Real Talk” 13+, near Millcreek. Somebody repeat this thing! 📷 @andrew_burr #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer with the crispy flannel
One of my favorite movies as a kid was Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. I love the scene where Li Mu Bai and Jen Yu are sword fighting in the bamboo forest, dancing across the small branches, seemingly weightless. I love the notion that through years of practice and dedication we can defy gravity. I’m still trying at any rate. The other night I had a flying dream, the first I’ve had in quite a while. It was different than the flying dreams I frequently had as a kid. Back then I could simply look up and blast off at a hundred miles per hour without hesitation. That became increasingly harder to do during my lucid dreams. As I got older I began to loose the magic and my feet just wouldn’t leave the ground. The other nigh was different because I was riding some sort of contraption. It was like a rocket scooter or something. Anyway, I pinned the throttle and pulled back, blasting up the side of a skyscraper into sky. The speed was exhilarating! I think as we get older we become more practical and grounded in reality. At least I’m still dreaming 📷 playing in the tree tops in Whistler BC with @eddiebauer
New vid is up! Link in profile. This past spring I finished up a beautiful crack project. Ringlock Ranch was lurking in a remote canyon, waiting thousands of years for the right climber to come along. It was an honor to do the FA of this route. Check the vid for the full scoop! 📷@eliza_earle @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure @pvintoniv @julesiecho @bronsonth
Got a fun little vid dropping tomorrow for all the crack climbers out there. Stay tuned! 📷 @eliza_earle @pvintoniv @eddiebauer #crackclimbing #liveyouradventure
First day back in Yosemite Valley, climbed some great pitches with @nikdingleberry feels great to have some air beneath my feet again #bigwall @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure @blackdiamond
Checked out a wild new route with @livingstonaaron the other day. This line will have some insane pitches! Stay tuned. @livingstonaaron photo of me on the crazy traverse pitch #kingline @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure @blackdiamond @edelweissropes_usa
Welcome to “Ringlock Ranch” 100% grass fed USDA choice crack climbing. It was a joy to find and work this amazing route. 📷 @pvintoniv @eliza_earle #crackclimbing @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure @julesiecho @bronsonth
