Yes Yes… I do realize winter is here and I’m still posting climbing photos, but I will have you know that the skiing has been sick too!! I just haven’t managed to bring out the camera because I’ve been much more content with lapping the chair. Mammoth recently received 2 feet of powdy cakes and I got my first face shots of the season. I probably also received just as many core shots in my skis, regardless, it was all time…

Until another storm rolls in, my days will probably consist of some skiing in the mornings and a few climbs in the afternoon. I’m overly stoked on the Sierras allowing me to do both in one day, so I’m taking complete advantage while I can.

In addition, filming for our Nimbus webisodes are about to be underway, so you will be getting plenty of snowy posts soon. Hope to see you on the slopes…

Lonnie Kauk, Peter Morning, and I headed out to the buttermilks last week so Lonnie could try to send The Mandala. We left Mammoth in freezing temps, hoping it would be perfect for sending, but sure enough the temperature difference between Mammoth and Bishop was huge, so palms and fingers got sweaty real fast. Lonnie was still able to send it with a small power spot I gave him at the bottom. It was super sick to see go down. Now we are just waiting for temps to drop again so he can complete the puzzle… Oh, and I played on some rocks too. It was amazing. Check out our day through the lens of Peter Morning Photography

Testing out the rubber.

Breaking in my new shoes… Very stoked on them!

Toe jamming.

I think this perfectly describes artsy fartsy…

Warming up the tips.

Getting ready to slap the slopers.

Yoga madness…

Lonnie warming up the tips.

And the feet..

Last warm up before the send.

Killing it!

Sent!!!

See you again soon Mr. Mandala.

Eddie Wall, Lonnie Kauk, John Jackson, Kimmy Fasani, Saori Renteria, and I all hit up the Gorge for some awesome climbing madness. Fortunately we brought Eddie and Saori (the ultimate documentors) because the rest of us forgot our cameras… We actually have plans to head back down in a day or two, so I will definitely keep you posted with more pics. For now please enjoy these snapshots courtesy of Eddie and Saori.
