Short and Sweet

It feels like summer is arriving and last weekend I really wanted to spend a night camping close to home. Something simple and no-fuss. After dinner Markus and I headed out for a walk with Kendra and Devin. The days are 24 hours long now and the evening was beautiful; Dogs playing, spending good time with friends, and enjoyed a little boulder climbing. Our friends returned home and we stayed to camp. Sunday morning was spectacular with beautiful blue skies. Just the easy, refreshing trip I was looking for.

Bouldering video: Eesti Aerobic

A little over a week ago I shot and edited this climbing video of my recently finished climbing project on a rock in Pangnirtung. It's the hardest boulder climb I have ever climbed, around 7a+ on the Fontainebleau scale. The grade, of course, is just a guess but it can't be much harder than that. On the other hand, the amount of work I put in it makes me believe it may not be possible for it to be below 7. When I was bouldering at 6a level, I could barely do two moves on this climb.

Whatever the grade is, it has been great to be working on a climbing project that is personally at the limit. It has taught me so much. Enjoy!
