The year - Mason Earle

 
The year - Mason Earle
 
February 12, 2013 - 
 

Its probably a bit late for a 2012 recap, but with most of North America still in the grip of winter, I figured those of us who live in snowy states need a reminder of what it is like to climb in a t-shirt! 

 

I was lucky to have some incredible adventures with various ladies and gentlemen of extraordinary character. I had the opportunity to explore for a month in Venezuela, ski chest-deep snow in Utah, establish new crack clmbs in Moab, ride helicopters in Yukon, scramble around Tuolumne and toil on impossible first ascents for over a month, bleed on Vedauwoo offwidths, and ride silly bicycles. What fun! These are some of my favorite first ascents from the year...

Kids With Guns 5.13a A3 R 21 pitches, Venezuela

At Dawn We Ride 5.12cR 15 pitches, Cirque of the Unclimbables

Real Talk 5.13+ trad Moab, UT

Green Tea 5.13 roof crack, Tuolumne, CA (thanks for the tip, Lucho Rivera!)
