Day 3 (final day) The night wasn’t nearly as rough but still cold. I woke up starting to feel the tent sleeping but was excited for my last day before leaving. Today’s clinic instructed by Jenny and Whitney was on technique for moving up the wall. Really honing into the simple movements which would help us accomplish a climb. I left exhausted but ready to get on a wall and feel comfortable. #redrockrendezvous#RRR17#rockclimbing#camping#climbing#exhausted
Day 2! Waking up to such a phenomenal sunrise which lit up the rock after a rough, cold night with intense wind gusts that collapsed many tents. After a little coffee I went for a 3 miles run/walk through the Spring Mountain State Park. After that it was time for clinics with Adam through Mammoth who went over things that were learned the day before and allowed myself and Shannon to climb. After the clinic I met with 2 fellow coasties and enjoyed the night while also meeting Alex Honnold. #redrockrendezvous#RRR17#redrock#rockcliming#mammoth#alexhonnold
I decided to pick up a new hobby... ROCK CLIMBING! And with the learning process I was able to head out to Red Rock Rendezvous to be taught by some amazing instructors. Day 1 was instructed by Alejandra through American Alpine Institute taught myself and 2 others the simple stuff before we took to the rocks. #redrockrendezvous#RRR17#redrock#aai#americanalpineinstitute#rockclimbing
January in DC means back into planning mode for the year, stoked to hopefully get back out on some Aztec sandstone soon! Here’s underground crusher @namevian throwing another lap for the cameras on likely the least-photographed and most unknown route in Vegas from the last RR rendezvous.
