Despite inferno heats in the shade and a hectic shooting schedule of 4am starts and 16 hour work days, @renan_ozturk and I got a lap in on the Rostrum. It's always a pleasure to climb with old friends. Thanks for roping up dude! @lasportivana
ad_van_ture_bum : Dope shot
jeffjohnson_beyondandback : Two legends.

john.w.harrison : Nice!

Is she a climber or is she a model? @paigeclaassen works for the shot during a @camp4collective photo shoot. She gets paid the big bux to answer the #athleteormodel question. @lasportivana

69dangermouse : Did you guys bear hug the diving board? Toe hook bat hang?
james_lucas : @69dangermouse I tried to push Cedar off but I accidentally stepped on his shoe lace. He climbed up his foot before I realized I needed to get off the cord

This morning I hit the stop watch and ran up and down Manure Pile. The clock pushes me. It's silly but fun. @lasportivana @touchstoneclimbing
james_lucas : @jeffjohnson_beyondandback about 16:40 from the car to the top and checked. My stop watch got screwy- I'm unsure what my car to car time was. I'm slow on the down hills.
james_lucas : @cedarwright has a few valley speed records. Potter and Stanley have a few really fast times too. Mountain running in the valley is definitely a sub sport @jeffjohnson_beyondandback
jeffjohnson_beyondandback : Pretty damn fast!
james_lucas : @jeffjohnson_beyondandback I did After 6. I think there's video of Greg and Stanley doing nutcracker in 5 minutes
alexhonnold : 16 min to the top?! That's leisure pace :)
inert_motion : @kylemarano @wildinthemountains
ryancappakelly : @alexhonnold I've always thought of Peaches as a "Man of Leisure"
uloverojas : Wow!!!!

Last year, I investigated the right side of Fifi Buttress for a new free route. I spent a fair bit of time swinging around on The Vortex, an 80s test piece that was the hardest route in Yosemite when it was established. The amazing lie back crux remains a difficult pitch at 5.12+. Today, during my third week of gym training, I thought of this pitch and the free routes left to establish in the valley. I crimped a bit harder. @lasportivana @touchstoneclimbing @gabriel_mange photo

The sun set this evening on the 8.4 mile loop in the hills of Tilden park. I'm more of a turtle than a hare but the evening run felt perfect. My slow plod let me catch a beautiful bay sunset. Now, I just need to decipher strava. @lasportivana
alliuphoto : Where's Burnaby, James?

A few years ago @nikdingleberry and I freed The Final Frontier (5.13b) @mikeylikesrocks snapped this photo of me on the penultimate pitch. I was perusing my Instagram photos last night and realized I needed more pictures of me. So here's a #tbt tomorrow, I'll be posting a picture of me in a pile of kittens @lasportivana #touchstoneclimbing @katerutherford #belaying

ljsauter : Don't make promises you can't keep james. You'll alienate your fans..
russell_krishna : The pic in the bigwall book makes me so psyched for corners!
scott__higgins : Nice pic dude, what shoes are you rocking here?
furt24 : A pile of kittens might send me over the edge of cuteness! My eyes will explode. 😲
abbihearne : I just read your essay about sending free rider. Beautiful. Inspiring. Your honesty and strength makes climbing great things seem attainable.
