We have just come off our Mexico project, finally feeling normal again, and yet here we are scrolling maps and planning out the next adventure. Mount St Helens. Washington State, here we come, and I couldn’t be more excited. Mount St Helens has been talked about in our circle for a … Continue reading #nextadventure

Once upon a time in Mexico

A crazy trip, 5 days, no sleep (well, barely), 2 guides, 4x4ing, tacos, and hell of a mountain to climb. This is how we mountaineer: Pico de Orizaba. And we’re off! 4/24/19 The day is here. Inception to realization. It’s 1145pm. I’m sitting at the tail end of a plane, 2 beers deep at Vancouver international airport. Exhausted from work. How did I get here? … Continue reading Once upon a time in Mexico

Crunch Time.

If you have been following along, you know that time has ticked down to a handful of days before we leave. Our big trip down to Mexico, looming in front of us.

The Reason you have a Plan B

So The beginning of February has already rolled in, and with it our annual winter camping trip. This year we had our eyes on a winter ascent of Wedge Mountain. We planned out the route, and all the logistics, had all the avalanche gear rented and ready to go… And then the Avy conditions in the Sea to Sky corridor went from bad, to really … Continue reading The Reason you have a Plan B

Wedge Mountain

The access trail is situated just north of Whistler BC. Now this will not be our first trip up to Wedge, in fact not even our first winter trip up there. Our … Continue reading Wedge Mountain

Rear View Mirror 2018

Another year has come to an end, and another successful year for racing. I enjoyed getting some new folks into running events, and even hit some personal bests. Also it has been a year of transition. Some new injuries, some old ones too. I’m looking forward to this coming year. We have some good races coming up including MOMAR again this coming September as well … Continue reading Rear View Mirror 2018

To Love and Hate Climbing

So here I am. In transition. In recovery. Semi sidelined from one sport, and digging into another. With recent hip issues holding my running game on pause, I have been turning to other sport for my release. As of late my brother has been dragging me out to rock climbing. Now I’m not going to lie, I am not good a rock climbing, in fact, … Continue reading To Love and Hate Climbing

35 hours and 42 minutes of Epicness

1168 kilometers, 2 states, 1 mountain, 35 hours and 42 minutes of epicness. The objective was simple enough. Drive from Vancouver, BC to Government Camp, Oregon and summit Mount Hood via the Hogsback/ Southside route, and drive home. With our lack of time away this trip was all business for my friend Tristan and I. We only had 2 days available to tackle this giant. … Continue reading 35 hours and 42 minutes of Epicness
