Hey all, please check out Team VH's album! Putting faces to names! Thanks!
Three week's in Cuba for climbing, filming, traveling and a lot of lifestyle.
This past weekend I made the long but mostly scenic drive out to a very special climbing area with two good friends, Luke and Cerre (a fellow FiveTen teammate). The remote mountain valleys of the climbing areas at Ibex are about an hour from the nearest town and miles from the nearest road that anybody other than climbers use. In between chatting and attempting boulder problems, there are always a few moments in which I sit still and take in the deafening silence of the place.
This whole concept began as a joke amongst our setting crew at The Spot. Spontaneity and a little too much Vodka brought the world Men Of Routesetting 2010. This year, we got a bit more serious.

Can you think of a better gift for your loved ones this holiday season? I can’t.
We have been lucky enough to receive a lot of early precip up here in northern California and it has made for some decent winter boating thus far. On Sunday (12/5/10) I enjoyed a great solo day out with my girlfriend Callie, unfortunately the flows were marginal on Mears Creek. This run flows into the Upper Sacramento and is located about 20mins south of Mt. Shasta. That night it dumped rain for a solid 9 hours and the following morning I knew there would be water somewhere around the area.
Keller and I both have projects that we're psyched on, but it's pouring rain outside. I’m sitting in bed right now, even though it’s past noon. It’s been pouring rain outside since we woke up. I just ate a bowl of yogurt with banana, kiwi and muesli for “breakfast”. All the windows in the room have the blinds drawn over them. Noah and the Whale is humming out of my headphones while I soak up pictures of perfect waves on the north shore on surfline… We’re gearing up for another proper rest day. It’s ok. I needed another...
