Abyss by LT11

I'm sure most of you have already checked out the great new free film by Louder Than 11 called Abyss. If you haven't, you got to check it out ( Interesting story, great imagery, many cool problems and cool graphics. It chronicles the development of a new bouldering area on Mt. Evans. Look for my short cameo neat the end with some footage of a cool V9 arete I did the FA of called Gold Blood.

Here's a sick image from the video of a lightning storm encountered at this high elevation area at 13,000ft.

Off to Independence Pass tomorrow for a couple days of bouldering. Should be fun and good conditions.

Fall Highball Classic in Bishop

Check it out, I'll be in Bishop this November for a cool event the American Alpine Club is throwing. There's limited space so register now:

For those wondering where I've been since Peru, as is typical for me, I jumped right back into my research and have been working hard to get things done so I can finish my PhD this semester. I've mostly been climbing/training indoors. Two weeks ago, I was out in Irvine, CA for the Aesthetic Bouldering Invitational. Really cool comp and I ended up finishing 6th in a strong field so I was psyched on that. Feeling strong now and getting motivated to head out to the Flatirons soon to work an amazing project I have there. So psyched, just need things to get a bit cooler.

Hope to see you all out in Bishop in November for the AAC Highball Classic.
