A true inspiration! Not only did she send her hardest route yet, she is now the fourth women to climb V14. In addition, she sent Wild Cat V12/V11 on the other side of the boulder shortly after her sent of Jade. Her dedication and determination to climbing is simply motivating!

Chris Sharma and Adam Ondra both cruxing on La Dura Dura (The Hard Hard).
Adam was the first to ascent this 5.15c route set by Chris Sharma in 2009. After two years and countless attempts, Ondra finally took the route, proposing it to be the toughest climb in the world. Months later, Sharma made the second ascent by feeding off of Ondra’s energy.

Alex Honnold deep water soloing, this doe-eyed climber is amazing! At age 28 Honnold has made a name for himself through his seemingly effortless free solo climbing. Not only has he broken numerous records in speed climbing, he is the only known solo climber to successfully complete the Yosemite Triple. Cool dude right here! But we all knew that already.

Anonymous asked: Why are all of the climbing blogs so far apart? Shouldn't we all have like a giant meet up at some crag and climb and slackline and be awesome?

Holy good idea! That would be amazing! I mean WILL BE amazing!
