I finally managed to land my big fish out at Trout Creek. It took over 40 tries during a two and half year period to reel in. Really happy to have this one finished. It's called Shusháynsh (pronounced: shoe-shine-sh), which is the native Sahaptin word for Steelhead. Hard to say where the grade is gonna land but probably somewhere near 5.13+. Thanks to everyone that rallied out to Trout to give me catches! And thanks for the great day @shanjean. Photo: @ianyurdin

Last week after topping out on El Cap I gotta show @shanjean one of the most amazing trees on the earth. I've hung out underneath this trees many times in my life and it always brings me happiness. But this time I was actually a bit sad. Underneath this amazing tree was some trash. And then underneath the boulders just a few meters away there was more trash. And pretty much everywhere I looked on top of el cap there was trash. Stashed gear, old water bottles, sleeping pads, fire rings and rock houses. And then on El Cap there is all the fixed rope, stashed haulbags and all the new convenience bolts. It looked awful up there and really quite sad. This trash wasn't left by "tourists" this trash was left by climbers. Yosemite was once home to strong ethics and good morals but in my opinion that is slowly eroding to a place where climbers think it is their right to climb on the walls and do whatever they want and however they want. The lack of respect for El Cap and all of Yosemite these days is astonishing. I think a serious discussion needs to happen about the future of El Cap and the responsibility that goes along with climbing it. We need to do better as a user group to police ourselves before that isn't even an option. El Cap is not some shitty sport climbing crag and shouldn't be treated like it anymore. #rantagram

littlepackage : @velodirt I feel nauseous again.
jabegg : Hey hey @mikeylikesrocks! I'm coming down to Smith for the next week with Mr. Woodward joining as well. Any chance I could sleep in the van at your house? Monday & Tuesday.
vlad_sofiyev : Trash and rampant retrobolting is a big problem in Yosemite right now as it's getting more attention and getting more commercialized. Thanks for bringing it up!
jeantucky : Yep. Thanks for sharing this Mikey. The trash is really disturbing and just one month after facelift too. Climbing ethic has changed all around. There are tick marks on higher cathedral spire route that was the first big climbing route put up in 1934.. Disgusting to see someone put ticks on a 5.9 that was put up on nails, pitons, boots, bowline tied around the waist and just pure desire.
andrewbisharat : The state of climbing is getting worse and worse. Thanks for this post
ljsauter : Nice follow through! ;)
terra.incognita.magazine : I agree and thank you for sharing your thoughts. However, I think even shitty sport climbing crags deserve respect and care too.

Happy to be back on the ground after spending 6 days toiling up on El Cap with @shanjean. We tried a 37 pitch 5.13a called Golden Gate. Really proud of @shanjean for climbing El cap for her first time and without having to use jumars or aiders! @patagonia_climb @metoliusclimbing @petzl_official

mikeylikesrocks : @benjaminbditto @katiebirdlambert I only did the move once, the beta that worked better was to just grab the draw!
benjaminbditto : @mikeylikesrocks glad you figured it out!

Finally got to go shoot with my new @Sony A7rII. So impressed with this camera. Focus speeds are awesome as well as overall image quality. It's gonna be a great camera to drag into the mountains and up big walls! Thanks @shanjean and @alxlwthr for a fun day of cold weather climbing up on Liberty Bell. #A7RII @patagonia_climb

Just finished a few fun days of shooting with @dpreview and director @beckergram for an upcoming review video of the @canonusa 5DS R. The camera was a mega pixel beast! It was also great to be home for a few days and shoot in my backyard, Smith Rock. And thanks to my friends @grantortman @allimmmiles @vburdie and @matt_likes_sunsets for being great models.
