dvr that's awesome. I was on top of Static a couple summers ago but I don't think we did Buck. Really want to go back to the Tetons.

might buy a trad rack. it seems foolish for me to not go into this wholeheartedly given how much i like doing it. really one of the few things that excites me about life right now.

super cold out means it is time to go bouldering outside! was in the 30s when this picture was taken on Friday and I kept wishing it was colder.

i've been bouldering a little in MT.

just went to the gym for the first time in maybe a year. feel great. i really took my time there and took a lot of 5-min breaks. i mostly avoided any overhanging wall.

ignorant question, but do you get a good winter climbing season at lower elevations in MT? i just assumed it would be too cold / snowy for much climbing. but i also climbed all winter when i lived in MA and CO so obviously it can be done.

rock climbing, no, not so much. there's snow most places except some heavily accessed south facing stuff. i'm not the best goto MT source of info though. i'd say it's harder to climb year-round here than in CO.
