A different valley view: El Cap and the Cathedrals from high up the east side of the valley. It was nice to finish off the Valley spring season with this comfy and scenic view, even if my smile hides the underlying exhaustion ๐Ÿ˜ . . . . . . #tradisrad #tradclimbing #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #alpinism #ourwild #wildernessculture #artofvisuals #wanderlust #exploremore #travelstoke #thetrek #natgeo #rei1440project #optoutside #roamtheplanet #getoutstayout #takelessdomore #yosemite #rock_climbing_pictures_of_instagram #offwidtharmy #leavittation #offwidthskillsorhospitalbills #yosemitevalley #gooutside #neverstopexploring at Yosemite Valley, California

@spangster is happier in this offwidth than I was ๐Ÿ˜’ this first section was not bad-my first time ever using stacks on a real climb!-but for a solid 15 ft the crack widened to a #6 and i ran out of skills and ideas. Something to try again in the future.... . . . . . #tradisrad #tradclimbing #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #alpinism #ourwild #wildernessculture #artofvisuals #wanderlust #exploremore #travelstoke #thetrek #natgeo #rei1440project #optoutside #roamtheplanet #getoutstayout #takelessdomore #yosemite #rock_climbing_pictures_of_instagram #offwidtharmy #leavittation #offwidthskillsorhospitalbills #yosemitevalley at Yosemite Valley, California

Our objective last Sunday....it looks so warm in this photo. Not pictured: my hands doing a good job of imitating icicle claws as I tried to get through the first pitch without falling, lacking any dexterity or sensations in my fingers ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ . . . . #tradisrad #mountaineering #tradclimbing #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #alpinism #highsierra #ourwild #wildernessculture #artofvisuals #wanderlust #exploremore #travelstoke #thetrek #natgeo #rei1440project #optoutside #roamtheplanet #getoutstayout #takelessdomore #hikemore #mtrussell #fishhookarete at Mt.

Everything is calm. Exactly 24 hours later, we'd be laying in this tent as 50mph gusts threatened to rip it apart. Thankfully the winds eventually calmed and our tent survived--we even managed to get some sleep. . . . . #highsierra #whitneyzone #mtwhitney #mtrussell #mountaineering #tradisrad #tradclimbing #iceberglake #easternsierra #eastsideisthebestside #zpacks at Mount Whitney

We got to camp with enough time to spare after digging out tent sites that we managed to squeeze in a couple of laps on the slope right above us. Our only time skiing without heavy packs all weekend... . . . . . #mountaineering #skitouring #alpinism #shasta #skiuphill #mountshasta #casavalridge #optoutside #freshairandfreedom #aacgram #accessyourpassion #cascades #14er #rawcalifornia #ourwild #choosemountains #wildernessculture #neverstopexploring #earnyourturns #theoutbound #adventureon at Mount Shasta

We were expecting a windy night: gusts of up to 40mph were in the forecast. But our camp (our two tents are all the way on the left) was surprisingly sheltered and calm. We dug out sheltered tent sites anyway. . . . . . . . . #mountaineering #skitouring #alpinism #shasta #skiuphill #mountshasta #casavalridge #optoutside #freshairandfreedom #aacgram #accessyourpassion #cascades #14er #rawcalifornia #ourwild #choosemountains #wildernessculture #neverstopexploring #earnyourturns #theoutbound #adventureon at Mount Shasta
