@dickeyphoto jugging to Dolt Tower, a thousand feet off the ground. Lucky for me, it was dark and I couldn't see how high we were. I get scared of heights . And the dark actually. And it was cold. The only redeeming factor was getting a little cuddle time with John on the ledge #whoselittlespoon @lasportivana @fixehardware @touchstoneclimbing

An adventurous day with @alexhonnold on The Uncertainty Principle, a 5.13- ( or 5.12 A0 for me) on the Sentinel. I backed off this 5.11 pitch because we only had 2 pieces that would fit. Nice to have Honnold gun through Zorro's Hat. He taught me a bit about chossaneering @cedarwright nice route.
gymbeaux_jeaux : Your pics are killing it lately!! Thank you.
solsurfur : nice climbing partner
cedarwright : So glad this is seeing action!!! @alexhonnold @james_lucas 👍👊

One of the hardest pitches on El Cap is also one of the "easiest". The monster offwidth climbs a 130' splitter 5.10 6 inch crack protected by one bolt and one cam. @alexhonnold and @tommycaldwell both told me I left room for improvement on my 1 hour ascent of the pitch. And I thought I was cruising. A pair of Salathe climbers snapped this photo of me during my bid to send the #megaproj @lasportivana @fixehardware @touchstoneclimbing @patagonia

zacdoesmath : Can't let yourself get exhausted on the cruiser pitches.
trevornew6669 : @james_lucas wow! Talk about ran out! Jeeze
therealnfr : Glory layback, and it'll take like 5 minutes!
bookdabook : Just push the battle axe green wide cam all the way up!

On Friday, @alexhonnold supported me while I attempted to free climb El Cap in a day. He snapped this photo of me on the Monster offwidth at about 8am. A few hundred feet later, I fell on the last move of the crux at the 23rd pitch. After a half dozen more tries, I grew tired. It's rough to fail on my #megaproj but it's part of the process. A chance of failure makes the adventure. @lasportivana @fixehardware @touchstoneclimbing @patagonia
