Getting there... I can now hold small holds, but I just can’t yard on them. This is ok however as it has opened up a new set of problems which I can try. As long as there are big footholds, and the moves are small I am ok on crimps again. Luckily Britain is full of problems like this – small holds, small moves. I headed back over to North Wales as I decided it was about time I finished off Diesel Power, an 8a roof in the Llanberis pass.

Five Ten is proud to support the Portuguese Big Wall Expedition. A team of climbers headed out to the Charakusa Valley in Northeastern Pakistan with the following goal: "Inspired by the place and the existing lines we make this expedition in order to open new Bigwall routes in the several Brakks 400-1200 meters."
This past weekend was the Nor'easter at Loon Mountain in Lincoln, NH. It was a great event with great weather and better climbing. It was also one of the first music festivals I've been to so that was a cool experience. The world cup wall was set with some great problems! For a relatively small amount of people, the crowd was pretty lively and being from New England, I had a pretty big cheering section of people who know me, which made it even more fun.
Its hard to understand the kayak industry unless you’re in it. We love to kayak but we also love to party, loud, long, and hard. The Feather Festival on the North Fork of the Feather river has continued to be a hub for great racing and EPIC partying. This year was no exception. Some of the top athletes on the west coast came and showed what they were made of.
