Ronnie Dickson: New Horizons
April 24, 2015

Five years ago, I set a goal for myself to climb V10. I like goals not because of the end destination, but because of the process and the journey that you embark on the second you decide to embrace that goal wholeheartedly and make strides towards it.

Paul Roberts: The Send Triangle
April 19, 2015

I have begun to notice some thing interesting, and you should begin to notice it too. What does it actually take to send a route that you’ve been working on for what feels like a timeless adventure?

He said, “Take.” She said, “Gotcha.” He said, “Why did you hose me?” She said, “I didn’t.” He said, “Whatever, take me tight.” She said, “OK.” He said, “Take me tight.” She said, “I am.” He said, “You keep dropping me.” She said, “I’m not heavy enough.” He said, “Sit on the rope.” She said, “I am.” He said, “Take me tight.” She said, “I am!”

March 19, 2015

October 3, 2014, 3:45 p.m. is a day and time I will never forget. I walked up to this boulder problem to warm up just like I have countless other times before. This boulder though was going to be the one that would put me down for quite a bit.
