The only replacement for power, is more power! @mspringer2 agrees as he practices squeezing the refrigerator up “Whispers of Wisdom” - V10 in Rocky Mountain National Park. So close to the send this session, just got to replace that power with just a little more power! #crewofcrushers #huggingrefregirators #pinchingblocks #tryhardandbleed #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #coloradobouldering #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbingphotography #rockymountainnationalpark #alpinebouldering #optoutside #getoutside #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #excitinglife #wanderlust #canonphotography #canonusa #canon

“That grade is too hard for me.” “The holds are too small.” “Im not strong enough.” Are all phrases that get said far too often in climbing.  You don’t get stronger if you don’t push yourself forward. “Hell Belly” - V11 was that for me. Some moves I wasn’t strong enough for. Other moves I physically wasn’t even tall enough to span from hold to hold. But it’s still a sick line. Glad I tried it. Glad I linked a number of the moves and made progress. I had fun. Smiled. Learned. And got stronger.  Pretty sure that’s the point of climbing. #falleverywhere #tryhardandbleed #squeezingrefrigerators #hugsforrocks #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #climbingphotography #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #moab #moabbouldering #utah #utahbouldering #bigbend #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #excitinglife #wanderlust #blackdiamondequipment #scarpa #optoutside #canon #canonusa #canonphotography

High winds and getting shredded by the blowing sand. But a perfect break in the clouds served as ideal lighting while @sherpassong steps her way through “Black Box Center” - V1 at the Big Bend Boulders of Moab, UT. Perfect crimp ledges to a exciting pop to the finish.  Moab keeps its warm ups spicy.  #somuchwind #naturessandblaster #sunburnorwindburn #climbing #rockclimbing #bouldering #climbingphotography #bigbend #moab #moabbouldering #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #wanderlust #explore #excitinglife #canonphotography #canonusa #canon

Moab in summer potentially has a theme.  Sandy ground.  Sand storms.  And a reputation of sandbagged problems. All of it worthwhile. “Blankety Blank SDS” - V6, at Big Bend, holds its reputation. Burly compression moves into a technical mantle top.  Six out of five stars.  #battlingwindandsand #climbingonmars #martianlife #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #climbingphotography #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #moab #moabbouldering #bigbend #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #excitinglife #tryhardandbleed #petzl #blackdiamondequipment #scarpa #canon #canonusa #canonphotography

Endless winter training sessions.  Hours of sweat. And too many protein shakes later. @mspringer2 showing that hard work pays off as progress is made on the steep and powerful, “Whispers into Wisdom” - V10, just below Emerald Lake, CO.  Actually maybe it was just enough protein shakes.  #crewofcrushers #squeezingblocks #tryhardandbleed #climbing #climbingphotography #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #bouldering #coloradobouldering #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #excitinglife #wanderlust #canonphotography #canonusa #canon

Blue skies.  Perfect temperatures. Beautiful sun.  And some of the best granite pebbles you could possibly dream about.  Warming up the body and mind, climbing into the sun on the ultra alpine classic “The Kind” - V5 near Emerald Lake, Colorado.  Arguably the best of the grade, just can’t seem to find enough stars to give it.  #fivestarsoutoffour #bestsetprobleminthegym #getitbeforethereset #coloradobouldering #rockclimbing #climbing #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #bouldering #frontrange #climbingphotography #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #wanderlust #excitinglife #explore #patagonia #scarpa #organicclimbing #canonphotography #canon #canonusa

Warmup send train in full effect as @mspringer2 ticks off the little known, but high quality “Penny” - V5 near Maxwell Falls, Colorado.  Alpine season is pretty much here, some landings are even better with the snow!  Syked to be working projects on the high elevation granite pebbles again! #friendsdontletfriendsclimbslab #theoppositeofslab #roofsofpower #crewofcrushers #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #climbingphotography #bouldering #frontrange #coloradobouldering #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #wanderlust #explore #canon #canonusa #canonphotography

We have busy lives. Professional lives. Athlete lives.  Goals we work towards day in and day out. Adulting can be exhausting. Sometimes it’s important to take a step back. Stop adulting. Focus on the less complex joys.  Like a loved pupper enjoying her favorite weather. If there is snow in the ground, she will find it. And roll, slide, and bury herself in it. Be an adult and work hard for your dreams. But don’t forget to be like a pupper. #missingmydog #bigfloof #bestfriend #adventuredog #dogsofinstagram #siberianhusky #instadog #happines #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #excitinglife #wanderlust #mountainlife #canon #canonusa #canonphotography

Suns out toes out. After a long winter it’s time to be rolling around in the dirt, trying to not fall off rocks, and taking photos during the process.  I’m not sure what weighs more when I’m moving through access hikes, the climbing gear or all my camera equipment. It’s all training weight right? #lotsofwalkingaroundinthewoods #findingpebbles #whichwaytotheboulders #rockclimbingphotography #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbing_is_my_passion #colorado #frontrange #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #excitinglife #canon #canon #canonusa

“I’m just going to check out the opening moves real quick.” Or in reality of what happened, sending the rig in a casual flash of “Penny” - V5 on the Hick Boulder near Maxwell Falls.  Pretty rad to check out a new, kinda hidden, less known boulder. 5-star movements on a cool pebble. Just building the syke for the snow to melt off the alpine rocks!  #pebblesinthewoods #bigpinchingclaws #itgoestothetop #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbingphotography #colorado #frontrange #coloradobouldering #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #excitinglife #explore #wanderlust #tryhardandbleed #fitness #petzl #lasportiva #canon #canonphotography #canonusa

This winter has been a lot of time spent in the gym. Building power, gaining strength, getting fitter. Ski season and coaching, as much as I love it, seriously cut into potential pebble wrestling (aka real climbing, not pinching plastic). The coaching season is over now though.  Time to move the winter gains back outside. Is it alpine season yet?  Common! I’m syked!! #plasticclimbingiscoolandall #butrealpebblesarebetter #gonnahaveplastictips #tryhardandbleed #pullpushdestroy #rockclimbing #climbing #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #gymclimbing #fitness #strengthtraining #excitinglife #trainingforclimbing #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore

Rock climbing and training are incredibly serious.  There can be no fooling around.  You have to stay focused and dedicated at all times.  Well.  Some people think that. (They’re wrong.) The best way to train is to have fun and joke around with friends.  Pushing each other to try hard and find new limits.  Finding new challenges both with climbing and training.  Thanks for “suffering” with me friends.  #funisimportant #laughedofftheproject #thebestclimber #istheonehavingthemostfun #rockclimbing #climbing #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #bouldering #gymclimbing #training #fitness #adventure #travel #adventurephotography #travelphotography #excitinglife

I’m not a early morning person.  Ya, I can manage a good alpine start when I need to. But don’t expect me to be super chatty and loving life.  I’ll probably be thinking about how comfortable I was sleeping, and now I’m silently suffering in the cold and dark instead.  Problem is... I’m usually the one who suggests waking up predawn.  I don’t know.  I’m weird.  Woke up for a early morning run up The Flatirons.  Moved faster than the sun, and watched her rise from my little perch on the summit.  Alpine starts are worth it.  I just won’t admit that in the morning.  #canttakemeserious #ihatesuffering #thatsalsoalie #justgohavefuninthemountains #bouldercolorado #flatirons #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #explore #travelphotography #wanderlust #excitinglife #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #colorado #frontrange #sunrise #moutainlife #canon #canonphotography #canonusa

Last night seemed darker than natural as I received the phone call no one wants to receive.  This morning was brighter though.  Some people make this world a brighter place, regardless of circumstances.  Savannah is one of them. Always smiling.  Always syked. Always reaching out and supporting. Savannah’s outspoken message of mental and physical strength and body positivity, will forever be impacted on our community.  We hear about losses and accidents in the climbing community far too often.  You spend enough time pursuing your dreams and goals, you eventually are exposed to more losses.  More accidents.  Eventually those accidents get closer to home and more personal.  When you have a friend that needs help, reach out. We all need assistance once and a while.  Life is hard enough on its own.  Be like Savannah, reach out. Brighten this world. #youarelovedandmissed #keepinspiring

Those few moments before you take the drop. Both peaceful, and full of inner turmoil. Staring down just under 2000’ of near 60°, no fall terrain, at the top of Dragontail Couloir in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Colorado is a rad state. The adventures, opportunities, and friendships keep opening up.  Time to take the drop. #dontbesillyimstillgonnasendit #steeperthanhell #321dropping #safetythird #skiing #backcountryskiing #bigmountainskiing #mountaineering #skimountaineering #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #getoutside #excitinglife #rockymountainnationalpark #colorado #canon #canonphotography #canonusa

Winter in Colorado. Apparently known as 60°, sunny, and an early start to Wildland Fire Season. Or as @jsklutters prefers, an early start to send season, as he takes down “Curmudgeon” - V7 on Flagstaff Mountain just outside Boulder.  If this weather continues, alpine boulders will be opening up soon! #winterisntcoming #maybesomewhereelse #butdefinitelynotincolorado #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #rockclimbing #climbing #bouldering #climbingphotography #adventure #adventurephotography #travel #travelphotography #explore #wanderlust #frontrange #boulder #colorado #frontrangebouldering #canon #canonphotography #canonusa

The 4am alpine start began with a weather report that encouraged high hopes of clear skies and sun. But here we are. Endurance front pointing on the crampons nearly 2000’ up the 55° Dragontail Couloir. Locked in a pea soup cloud, getting buffeted by wind and snow. Weather report might not have held up, conditions might have made this more of a sufferfest, with a no-fall descent, but we still sent it.
