Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that each and every one of you enjoyed a day of love, life, and laughter with your family and friends. Peace and blessings!
This Christmas was my first away from home. It felt odd and a bit sad to be apart from the family I love so much on such an incredible holiday, but fun and refreshing to celebrate a little bit differently for a change…
Bouldering on Christmas? Yep. It’s as good as it sounds!

Christmas Eve was a blast. I felt surprisingly bad climbing after back-to-back rest days, and decided to dodge frustration by scouring the Happies for easy and moderate classics that have escaped by attention on previous trips. Climbing for climbing’s sake. Loved it!

It snowed last night. Still merry with Christmas cheer, I awoke to find The Pit transformed into a winter wonderland. So far it has been a perfect rest day: coffee and left over Christmas pie for breakfast, clear skies with the sun shining brightly, and that wonderful crunch of snow beneath my feet. Will bailed, deciding to return home early rather than risk another storm, but I’m sticking around. The snow is already melting rapidly, and I’m thinkin’ we will be out climbing again in a day or two. Happy holidays!
