I'm more use to putting people in the spotlight than having it focused on me but I guess I can only drag my feet for so long until it turns on me. Thanks to @DuctTapeThenBeer for the push to make it happen. I truly am really excited to finally share my story and relationship with one of greatest mountain ranges and climbing areas in the world, Patagonia. This place has had a profound impact on my life and I am thankful for all it has and continues to teach me. Starting next Tuesday I'm going on a world tour presenting Force, a 17 minute film produced by @DuctTapeThenBeer and presented by @Patagonia about the 8 year relationship and 7 Fitzroy massif first ascents I've done. Along with the film I will be sharing some of the most important images and lessons I've learnt while climbing down there. Click on my profile for a direct link to the Force trailer and more info. I hope some of you will be able to join me along the way. Below are some dates and locations. Feathered Friends, Seattle, WA SEP. 16th Patagonia Bend, Sept.17th Patagonia Portland, Sept 18th Patagonia San Francisco, Sept 19th Patagonia Boulder, Sept. 22nd Paragon Sport, NY Sept 23rd Patagonia Meatpacking Sept. 24th Patagonia Boston, Sept 25th Europe dates to come…

I don't really consider myself a skier and hadn't strapped skis on in years before Chamonix this spring. Let's just say I had a hard time keeping up with @Colinhaley1 who is as passionate about skiing as he is climbing. Thankfully I've never been one to shy away from getting my a$$ kicked and that is exactly what happened. @Patagonia #LeaveItOn #NanoAir

@Colinhaley1 and were lucky enough to have almost perfect weather during our 5 days of climbing while in Chamonix. It even got warm enough that we were able to checkout some of the fine granite on the south face of Aiguille du Midi. Most of the locals thought we were crazy for going rockclimbing in March but it was dreamy up there. We did a 5.11 route called La Contamine, which shouldn't be missed! @Patagonia #LeaveItOn #NanoAir

akornylak : #acheval like the French do πŸ‘
the_next_step : Several years ago I soloed the Rebuffat route on the Midi - and found myself completely alone on the S face - it was unbelievable!!!
grampahans : Great spread in the new Patagonia catalogue.
tolasenoret : Buena loco!!

Usually the Frendo Spur on the Aiguille du Midi is done in slightly drier conditions but that didn't stop @ColinHaley1 and I from taking quick lap on this ultra classic 1200m line on the North Face. Once you get use to climbing 5.10 cracks covered in snow with ice tools and crampons it actually becomes quite fun. @Patagonia #LeaveItOn #NanoAir

Early this spring @Patagonia sent me to Chamonix with the goal of testing out a prototype insulated jacket called the Nano-Air. I test clothing and equipment for them all the time but this mission was slightly different. We were asked to the put the jacket on and leave it on, for 5 days of running around the mountains doing everything from 3000+ foot alpine routes, to ice climbing, to skiing, to rock climbing. So along with @Colinhaley1 thats what we did. At first I was fairly dubious of the idea of wearing one jacket the whole time. No jacket I've ever worn or seen is that versatile. But I gotta say, after wearing the Nano-Air for 5 days of really diverse activities I was super impressed and convinced this jacket can function amazingly well in so many different environments. Though it did get pretty smelly... Over the next few day I finally get to share some of the images from the trip. #LeaveItOn #NanoAir

"This sure is runout! Whoever put this route up should've put more bolts in!" Thats what I kept saying a couple days ago while re-climbing Border Country, a route on Middle Cathedral that I actually put up in '09 with @jercollins_com and Dana "Maddog" Drummond. I just don't remember it being so scary up there! Had a fun day shooting a couple days ago with @jercollins_com and @jamesqmartin for Jer's upcoming movie Drawn. Can't wait to see the film this fall. #drawnthemovie {photo by @jamesqmartin }

And sometimes you just find yourself in New York in a gigantic half buried Wiffle ball looking up at the world... My life can be pretty random.

Somehow @colinhaley1 and I managed to climbed the wrong route on Mount Macdonald but our consolation route was still pretty fun. 7 pitches or so of decent 5.10 A0 followed by over 2k of perfect ridge climbing. #betterthanbeingstuckintheSaltPalace
