Digging deep for a smooth handjam. This technique was a new one for Carter who celebrated his birthday with us on the rocks. It is amazing how a little bit of instruction can teach new concepts so quickly. He went from "no way! That' painful" to "wow, this handjam thing actually feels very supportive". All you got to do is stick your straight hand into the crack and pull your thumb down into the surface of your hand. That makes your lower hand part wider and jams it into the crack. Well done! Our climb here – "Beautiful", 5.5 is one of the smoothest and greatest crack for first handjammers – come try out yourself 🤘

What an amazing session with Jeff yesterday afternoon. We could not have asked for better weather conditions with nice temperatures, clouds and sun mixed! It was Jeff's second session with us and he is training for his big ascent in the Himalayas next year. His goal is to climb as much as possible to get his endurance game and technique up! And so we checked out a bunch of climbs in all kinds of styles from chimney to face and crack (we even got him on a sweet short offwidth). A lot of the climbs we topped out and scrambled over to the next one to rappell in from the top – true adventure style! We cannot wait for our next session in Joshua Tree. Well done Jeff!

Yesterday we had an amazing day teaching trad climbing skills to our new friends from Nebraska. Susan and Ben already brought in a good amount of experience lead climbing in their local gym. After a full day on the rocks they were able to place "bombproof" cams and build almost flawless 3 piece trad anchors. We also pointed out many details and creative ways to deal with certain situations that we made up. We are proud of them… they were sharp and their critical thinking skills made this session a very effective one

Back at our main office in San Diego. We had a great private session with this beautiful couple from London. It was their first outdoor experience after one year of gym climbing once a week. We kept hearing "this is so different…. this so cool". Their expectations of the trip were topped Clearly! they are hooked. 🤘

We are so impressed by Stanley! At the sweet age of 77 he is still climbing and busting moves in the vertical. Yes! It might be a little bit slower here and there but the feeling of enjoyment, accomplishment and badassery is the same. And so we climbed six amazing pitches in Joshua Tree. Big smiles and great inspiration

Sea cadets in action! Day 3 of our winter training. Everybody crushed it as we all applied the basic principles of building anchors and lead climbing. We are impressed with how strong and motivated our group is! Now we look forward to what today brings. On belay

We had such a great time on our second day of the winter training. We spend the first half of the day teaching how to clean top rope anchors via rappelling. Each cadet went through the drill at least twice. To top off the day with a great prepararion for today we then went into the boulder field to build 3 piece trad anchors. We are already psyched to see how they put everything into practice in the vertical today

Great first day of our winter training with the US Naval sea cadets. Everybody crushed and we are already psyched to teach more skills in the vertical. Big thanks to our guides @gregasaurus_flex and @senseisplitter for facilitating.

Super fun Intro to rock climbing class in San Diego. We had an amazing crew out and learned a lot about how to stay safe on rocks and ropes. We also had many "a-ha" moments. One of them was realizing that outdoor climbs often offer many more rest positions than most indoor climbs… so we climbed, rested and climbed again – without tiring out too much. Everybody ended up climbing at least 4 different routes. Super fast crew. Super fun

Amazing day out in Joshua Tree. Sean, his dad and sister Tristen came out to get on some multi-pitch climbs with us. We ended up climbing 6 pitches in 2 climbs that finished with awesome rappels for our descents. We are thrilled to climb again with this awesome trio. Father Stan is still crushing at 77! His strength and psyche to go out and adventure is impressive! Smiles were big, moves were busted out and the stoke was always high. Here Mike D. in charge of setting up a smooth ride down the rappel line.
