Lead climbing. This is going to be me in a few years.
I wonder if this has been climbed? Could this be a gigantic first ascent?
From last night’s #CONAN monologue. #TeenMom #MTV (at Warner Bros Stage 15)
haha this is great!

The family lives in the Pacific Northwest, on an island just above Seattle. As Stasha states, “Our island is one big playground and there are adventures galore.” The above photos show the close bond between man and best friend and hopefully their friendship will last a life time.

The World’s Worst Belayer
I sent my first V6 earlier this week! So I’m psyched about that and I’ve been doing some hangboard & campus training. I saw some 16 year old climbing professionals who were climbing 5.13b on lead today & I felt so weak haha in comparison! Haha I was a little envious & jealous of their strengths at such a young age on lead!! Oh well I think I can climb 5.12a on lead in a month or so if I continue to train hard! I was at central rock gym in Watertown today and I spent six hours at the gym… haha it was a good session. I bought a grigri 2 as well which I’m learning to use on lead. It’s a bit strange to use in comparison to an ATC which I’ve been using for four years now.
