The past month I have been in Squamish. I believe Jim Bridwell or someone once said that Yosemite was the "training grounds" for the greater ranges. Well, Squamish is sort of like the training grounds for Yosemite. In the same day one can climb big long free routes, go climb steep sport routes, and then have an evening of bouldering. There is an amazing amount of high quality, and accessible rock climbing to do here- great for getting fit. Lately I've been doing a lot of sport climbing, in an attempt to actually become a stronger climber, and managed to tick "Patience," a route the guidebook called 5.14a.

Earlier today Alex Honnold and I set a new speed record for the Grand Wall, climbing from the base to the top of the Roman Chimneys in 59 minutes and 30 seconds- beating our good friends Will Stanhope and Jason Kruk's impressive record of 1 hour and 13 minutes.

I have also been working hard on trying to finish up the Cobra Crack. Yesterday I came stupidly close to sending, falling off the final move of the crux.

Thats about it.


  1. You're a savage! Did you and honnold start on apron strings? and did you guys simul climb the whole time?

  2. The kids’ harnesses are distinct but share a close semblance with adult harnesses regarding features. Kids harnesses are built with children in mind thus have smaller design structure to fit a Childs frame. Little kids going on climbing expeditions require full-body harnesses due to their high center of gravity. this review Full-body harnesses for kids are designed for children who are usually around five years and younger.
