The Process


Often, as I’m taking videos of Richard bouldering, I get disappointed at the final result. He just makes it look too easy in the end. And sure, we often climb (as Richard has mentioned) easier grades that are just damn fun to work. So it would make sense that the final video doesn’t rival Dai Koyamada on Dreamtime, but there’s still a part of the story missing in that final video. And so, here’s a [...]


Annot: Good Place

This town, just north of the Italian border about 1.5 hours from [...]

We didn’t think we would be bouldering in bishop due to our late season arrival. However, Monsieur el niƱo was on our side and I had time to dispatch a couple of climbs that I had previously tried in bishop. The race was on to climb before the rattlesnakes awoke, but thankfully colder temperatures and unexpected snowfall prior to our arrival had the boulders at our fingertips. Arriving at the ironman I was greated by [...]
