had such a rad time out in sequoia yesterday. everything went as perfectly as I could have hoped for. hit the trail at 3:20 am, roped up and climbing at 9:40, off the ridge at 12:15, and back to the car at 6:25. 30 miles, 10k vertical gain. bonked hard about 30 minutes after getting back to the car. feeling pretty worked today. time for a beer!

Nice job, that looks cool.

I was up here today, 20miles RT 4000ft vert. All hiking/scrambling though. I'm gonna start seeking out some class 3 scrambles cause I can't ever coordinate climbing with anyone. I've done 4 20+ (heh) mile hikes this summer, wanna start doing more technical routes. I'm bouldering mellow about once a week

The Tetons. I just got work/housing lined up so I'm gonna be nearby through the winter! (I sell magnets and twig balls). The snow was from the last two days. It was about 30 degrees out when I left my car at 8am, no snow on the ground though. I was punching through, at most, like 3" of new snow up high. Most places less than an inch.

On your route how much was climb vs trail? Any bolts or were you placing gear? Last winter I got back into indoor bouldering but I think I started off too strong cause I had elbow pain for months. Now that's all better so I'm really trying to ease into climbing

Edit, the Tetons are not in that picture thats buck mt

the climb is around 2000' of 5th class terrain. it is described as 17 pitches, although we simul climbed the whole thing. i brought 10 cams, a small set of nuts and a 7 mm 70 meter rope doubled up as a twin line. i could climb about 400 feet before running out of gear.

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.
