Early morning missions in constant pursuit of shade and north faces to avoid triple digit temps. This heat in Utah sure has me reminiscing about cooler days guiding in the Northwest. Looking forward to returning to the Cascades soon! In the meantime, I’m migrating north again to seek refuge and play in the Tetons. Here’s a couple shots of Richard and my climb of Shuksan via the Fisher Chimneys, an extremely fun alpine route that rewards all with versatile terrain and on this day, incredible views! @bakerguides

In my happy place...! There is something special about being surrounded with layers of thousands years old ice. You could say your climbing history, but in general it’s just great fun and workout for body and soul! You wanna join me for the next round ? #siggisworld#iceland 📸 @rozlebregar
On top of Yanapaccha, after a little summit dance battle with @mickasaurus_turnsup, @adventure_mvmt captures the happiness perfectly in the lenses of my @uvexsports goggles. Miss you boys, stay safe on your Bolivia adventure and let's start planning our next one together.

“Chicken on the Chickamin” (Ptarmigan Day 4). - How do you know when to turn around or when to push through the self-doubt and fear? A few times this year I have made the decision to turn around, despite miles and miles of approach, because the conditions didn’t feel entirely right. My partners have listened and respected these decisions, even when they have disagreed, leaving behind a summit or a sweet ski line. I rehash my decision making over and over, trying to decide if I made the right call or simply bowed to fear. On this particular day, the snow was soft but seemed reasonably secure, and Sam (@mursecurse ) followed gamely as I disappeared over the bergschrund and down the steepest snow he had yet encountered ( # 1). A thousand feet lower and we were ready to start traversing the Chickamin. This glacier had all of my respect and attention. A multi-lobed active sea of ice, littered with cracks. The clouds were rolling in and out, obscuring the path to the base of Sinister (# 2, our objective). We sat, watching the clouds reveal sections of our path, then quickly cloaking then again. Could we make it through? Probably, but it wasn’t certain. Daylight was limited, and the weather was a little unstable. Making the call to turn around and climb back out of the Chickamin was hard. We slowly climbed back up and over to the Col. We started down the Dome glacier, and the clouds rolled over us, creating a world of grey. Unable to see where the snow ended and the sky began, we walked forward, stepping on cloud and snow, following our tracks back home (# 4).
