Last of the Bohicans | 8b Red River Gorge | USA 🇺🇸 The biggest one to go unsent this trip. This move, a massive lock off after a pumpy 8a's worth of climbing, was the last 'hard' move and proved the stopper. Thankfully rock is pretty tough stuff and it'll still be there when I return, whenever that may be. A massive thanks to all that made the trip what it was. The Brits and honorary Brits @alicehafer @minaclimbing @ethan_climb. The locals and americans, I salute you, rage on and see you in Spain! @toppen_out @edwinteran @drumack5 Alvin @punty_mcthrutch @joekinder @ltjian and everyone too numerous to mention! 📷@scribspics Nice one mate. . . . . . #rockclimbing #sportclimbing #redriverclimbing #climberscollective #climbing_is_my_passion #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbing_worldwide #climbersofinstagram #neverstopexploring #doyouclimb #climbing_lovers #3rdrocking

Climbing is a sport of paradox

Climbing is a sport of paradoxes. It’s about preparation but also luck, about trying hard but also staying calm, about making it happen but also letting it happen. Our reaction to success and failure is just as variable. Most instances of sending a new grade are followed by excitement and joy. This time it was different. When I let go, stopped caring, cleared my mind and finally clipped the chains on my first 5.12c the feeling was relief more than happiness. And yet there is a certain satisfaction in this reaction. The send wasn’t as special in part because I feel close to bigger things than I ever have before when pushing into a new grade. So, time to get to work on those bigger things! ——————————————————- Herd Mentality, 5.12c, Solar Collector, RRG. Thanks to @mikegoesupanddown for the 📸, to @mrtnasty for the belay, to @basil_jay2 for keeping me calm, to @taylorfrohmiller for a couple key beta tweaks, and to everyone else awesome that I’ve climbed and chilled with this season. You’re all awesome!

Got back last night from my first three-day weekend at the Red in a while. It’s been a tough season for the weekend warrior, with lots of hot and humid Saturdays and Sundays even into November. These difficulties led to frustrations on the climbing side of things, but I’ve been psyched to get behind the lens and experiment more with capturing other people on the wall. This past weekend, however, we finally got some good temps and got after it. I was far from meeting my goals, but some good and morale-boosting progress was made. The stoke is back, can’t wait for what’s ahead!

The long drive. What they don’t tell you about climbing trips is that it’s mostly getting there. Vague guidebooks, unfamiliarity, and a general anxiousness to get there. Once you know you’re on the right path, that anxiousness turns into excitement. In this one, we are beginning the long approach to Dip Wall. #redrivergorge #redriverclimbing #climbing
