We lust over vertical rock faces, their tiny intricate details and how to summit them.
Rock climbing has single-handedly been the most important aspect of our life on the road.
Climbing the vertical takes us to places that don’t have names on your standard issue map. It takes us to peace and quiet where we don’t see anyone for days at a time. We find ourselves in a solitude where nothing makes sense except to find minute ripples in a blank face to inch our way up. When we’re climbing, we have no other thoughts except how to summit what’s in front of us. It’s a drug that we’ve become unashamedly addicted to.
This winter, we traded our snowboards for a our climbing gear and devoted the entire snow season to explore the American Southwest. And do pretty much nothing else but climb.
Since this is such an important part of our lives, we’ve compiled some photos to show where the past few months have taken us!
