I can recall a time I felt growing pains. I was walking down the hallway in our house and a sudden pain shot through my leg, in fact I remember crying out that I had just been shot in the leg with an arrow, a flint tipped Port Orford Cedar shaft right through my femur. […]
It’s D’s b-day weekend, yes birthday’s last a weekend around here. We were stoked to get out of dodge, and lucky for us it’s also a 3-day weekend–thank you MLK! We started off at TK’s cabin up Hobble Creek. It’s the perfect quick escape only 20 minutes and you’re out of town, out of smog, […]
There’s no better way to roam than by clinking chain and knobby treads cruising through rock and dirt. There’s always more to explore in this country, further distances to be travelled, and it’s never short of an epic view. Like my childhood reads of Cam Jansen I just want to say “click” and hope my […]
there’s that saying if these walls could talk, the stories they’d tell. that’s what I always think exploring this vast country. canyons scattered with remnants of ancients who toiled and lived off the land. also, the dirt trodden by explorers of old wandering the country for reasons not to far from our own. there’s a […]
WEEKEND OF WEEKENDS.
The final weekend before the long winter of no weekend adventures (i.e. ankle surgery and 6 month recovery) was spent with close friends. Getting feedback on keep it like a secret, sleepover at the cabin (the see-saw from our wedding was still fully functional), and practicing our shooting skills. Lucky with weather we had all […]
In Southeast Utah with heavy rains come flash floods. We headed out to Montezuma Canyon to see if we could catch a glimpse at the rushing water. We didn’t spot any flashes, however we did find chocolate milk water run offs, rock falls, and a reconstructed Kiev. Full Set | Last Weekend
RIM WALKING & CLIMB SCOUTING.
Abajo Mountain means “the low mountain.” Appropriately named as the low storm clouds cloaked the mountains throughout the weekend. We made our way along the mountain east rim exploring rock bands for new climbs. Overcasting clouds, cool temperatures, escaping setting sun rays, and the smell sage and pine made for an idyllic night walk. Full […]
This past weekend I ended up having some extra time before my ankle surgery so we headed down to Monticello. We have been drafting Roam swag so it was about time to create prototypes. Dustin’s dad has done quite a bit of leather work so he taught us some tricks of the trade. What it […]
A new climb we’re working on we deemed “The Teapot.” As you can see it isn’t too far off from our Abajo Mountain backyard. This climb has the view, the perfect approach, and a little variation to your typical climb. Aid climbing, a.k.a. the dark arts, is a method used to attack a climb that […]
With skis, in dire need of grinding, strapped to the top of the runner we headed a couple hours south to 700 vertical feet of sand aka Little Sahara. Without any motors to get up the hill, we planned for a late night start when there was relief from the sun. However, driving up to […]
