His jagged peaks could not pierce the tiny thing’s calloused hands. His loose rock did not deceive, nor his dizzying heights discourage. Condensation gathered as the mountain watched the indomitable insect scale his slopes, sweating nervously.

Grew a beard just for the purpose of going to Mussenden Temple in the middle of winter ❄️🧔🏼

I sent my first V6 bouldering in almost 2 years today!
I've been rock climbing since I was 16 and it's my favorite sport. When I was diagnosed with crohn's disease, I was way too sick to exercise and had to take about a year and a half off from climbing. After a slow restart to climbing last semester I've been climbing 5 days a week and it's been laying off. A V6 is the hardest climb I've done since I got diagnosed and it's the same level as the hardest climb I've ever done. Feels so good to come back from everything that's happened and keep climbing.
Congrats to Erin and Owen on winning the Essex County Championship last night! 👏👏👏
And congrats to everyone that competed and looked great last night! So pumped that everyone is looking great at the right time of the season! 👏👏👏
Looking forward to sectionals this weekend! 👍
Our women's climb nights are a super fun and supportive way to meet an awesome community of women! There's something for everyone, from those beginners scared to try, to those climbers with experience that can show us some tricks and tips and want to find more climbing pals.
Are you in our Facebook group community forum? Check out additional photos there from Feb 5 - all of them have been taken by our talented friend @raquelsaniuk

Bein’ monkeys. Love it when the @boltsandholds crew throws up partner climbs! Always great to solve these problems with my brother from the same mother, @scottyiswhoiam
This picture brings me back to one of the most surreal experiences I’ve ever had rock climbing. Moments like this inspire me to keep climbing and trying my hardest even on the most humbling of days. There’s truly nowhere like Yosemite 🌎
I trained myself to be a wallflower, observer and witness. To pay attention to detail in order to be capable of capturing milliseconds that come and pass in a blink and yet have so much to say about the human experience and who we are at our deepest core.
I’ve trained myself to study subtlety in a quiet and unobtrusive way. I currently find myself in one of those “things-have-gone-full-circle” scenarios where I am becoming more completely engaged, as an athlete and photographer.
I perpetually feel I need to do more and that what I am doing isn’t enough - train more, train harder, be a better skier, better climber, more solid with systems, a better photographer, do more video, be better with editing, get my work out there, work with more athletes and develop more connections, making the most of each precious season while still taking care of myself and not getting too run down.
This sometimes feels inspiring beyond belief, and at other times completely paralyzing considering I am quite introverted and I look to others who seem to navigate all of those layers with ease and grace while I feel like I’m peering through a crack in the wall looking out to the other side where I hope to one day feel like I belong.
The past few months have included important experiences for me to step into arenas that intimidate me. The Rock & Ice Photo Camp and Ouray Ice Festival have allowed me to take some steps further into this community and I have been humbled and am grateful to those who have made me feel like I deserve to be here.

Disclaimer - I fell a bunch of times & needed help on the rope to get to the top. But I eventually got there! Sounds like a metaphor for my entire life. Rock climbing is scary and I’m not very good at it. It’s extremely challenging but after a day of climbing and hiking in a place like Joshua Tree you get to apply what you learned to your professional and personal lives. 🧗♂️ 🌵 ⛰
