First Descents in Chile

Whats up all, Just Checking in. Having just returned to the world after spending ten days in the mountains of cerro castillo of chile, knocking off first descents. Over the ten days we skied 5 days the other 5 days mother nature won and we spent time in the tent reading and writing. But the five days we skied it was on!! I skied five 2000 to 3000 feet of 45 to 53 degree couliours. Truely living the dream!! The first person to rip these faces. Check out my blog on on blogger peaks of patagonia for photos and much more. Thank you to the base camp family for the support. see you in a week or so

Once again, thank you Shasta Base Camp for your support. Sending Marbelous has truly been the hi lite of my climbing career. Marbelous 5.13a(r) this is a beautiful line up perfect rock. The climbing is mostly 5.11 liebacking with 3 5.12 cruxes, 2 of which come high on the route after the pump factor kicks in. Here I am just getting into the 2nd technical crux which is also the 2nd runout head crux as well.

Castle Crags Climbing

"Impeach The President" 5.10c photo by: Chris Carr

Route development at the Crag's is moving along nicely.
Webber recently added the pictured route, a Steep juggy climb with a few bolts added after the FA, for the sanity of future ascents. He also completed "Jugs On the Horizon" another ground up 5.10c, 3 bolts and small gear get you to the top of this 110' new Crag's Classic pitch.
Thanks Styles Larsen and Shasta Base Camp for you continued support. Also thanks to Yates Gear for kicking down a stack of software, and thanks to Mad Rock for providing hangers at a Mad price.

Ski Movie

Kirkwood, and the End of the Comp. Season

I accomplished one of my seasons goes to ski on the world tour, that goal came true on Friday monrning. I qualified two days before to ski in the North American Championships at Kirkwood. On friday morning I learned that I would start 54, typical for me to start in the back. I thought the snow would be soft (corn) but that would be a understantment, it was like skiing on grippy chream cheese. During my run I ended of getting lost after hitting a cliff and coming out on a rock, it kindof rattled me, as I was landing I saw the racks and had to open my stands up to try to put the rocks between my legs . Seconds last I found myself skiing by my next line, so then I was shotting from the on what to do. And I ended up shooting myself in the foot, I lined up a big air, but the trany wasn't there and I ended up crashed forward like a front flip in cream cheese. It sucked to have that happen. But at lease I have no injuries and it's time to hit the spring corn with friends in shasata.
With the end of my second year on the tour and my first full tour I'm happy to have finished 13th overall in the US as of right now, but now the hungry to be number on is evens tronger and I want to stand on the top of the podium. I want to thank all of my sponsors for the support.
