Can You try your hardest without screaming?
Thanks to my sponsors for their continued support. I chose these companies over many others for their committment to our sport, our planet, and the increased happiness of all human beings. Check out their websites and buy their quality products!
Recently, my brother Jordan and his girlfriend Amanda came to visit us in this little piece of heaven on Earth... Needless to say we golfed and fished just about everyday. The end result was me investing in a fly rod. I had gone really hard at climbing the week before Jordan and Amanda's visit, touring the Mountain hardware team around the Way Lake bouldering area in Mammoth, CA. I split a tip pretty bad almost repeating Wills Young's epic Wavecatcher problem (I have done this climb before.) One of my best friends, Matt, managed to complete the problem; check it out:
Soooo.... A week of fishing and golf were just what the doctor ordered!
The last week, I have been climbing again, trying to shed some fat from the time off and the crazy sushi dinners. I have been to Sugarpine 3 and 5 developing first ascents with the West Shore boyz. Dave Hatchett & Co. are super fun to climb with. Dave is the main developer of Sugarpine, which now has over 150 boulders and 620 boulder problems of every type imaginable. SP1 & 2 are the biggest so far, but it's stacked everywhere. Best area in Tahoe BY FAR...
For the next 2 weeks, we will be living in the Yosemite house behind the medical clinic. Hopefully it's not too hot, but if it is, we'll do classics and climb the Muir tree a bunch. Can't complain about 2 weeks in the valley.
Take care, everyone!
Seek perfection of character, respect others & Try Hard. Noah as usual
I Try Hard. I believe that the body follows the mind and that we are all artists creating a masterpiece (or a disaster) of our lives. When we take responsibility for our actions, our health, our happiness, and other's happiness, we improve the quality of life for ourselves and all those around us. Life is short, do something amazing with yours. Don't sit by idly watching others pursue their dreams; create your dreams, make them reality and take advantage of this amazing fleeting dream!
