Onward and Upward

Well I moved on from Destin feeling like a stuffed tick. Had fun with the family, but I'm glad the beach party is over. Tomorrow I set sail for North Carolina. Hopefully the weather is going to be good on Sunday, but it's not looking like it.... Shit! Ass! Oh well, maybe Rumbling Bald next time around. Monday holds a pretty long drive (read: 14 hours = heinous) from NC to OK. My girlfriend and I will have plenty of quality time in the car, and hopefully she wont get sick of me (read: pounding red bull and singing at the top of my lungs). Then comes the good old O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A. Hell yeah son, I am psyched about pulling down at some of the home crags (read: crushing classics) . I'll keep in touch, keep checking back.

Peace. Love. Applesauce.

Well not much to say other than the fact it is cold as hell in Destin... in the 30's to be exact. Holy mother... Anyway, I start fishing through my photos and came up with this badass sequence from Bishop a couple years back. Alex Savage sending Evilution to the lip.

This Joker is Big

Awwww Snap!

Getting Fat....

It is amazing how much regular people eat... Visiting with my family this week has opened my eyes to the glutenous ways of the average American. Normally I would wake up, eat a bowl of cereal, and then eat again when I got hungry, but this morning I woke up and ate a bowl of cereal, was offered a piece of cake, and as soon as I finished was asked how many empanadas I wanted for lunch (which will probably occur in 30 min). Son of a bitch. I should just count myself out for sending this break, my fat ass wont be able to do anything but watch. With 60 different kinds of cookies and pies, there is no will power strong enough to keep from snacking all day long. I'm going to try, but most likely it will do no good. You know the first thing my grandma said to me? Not "hello", or "how are you", or "how have you been", but "What do you want to eat???". Nothing Grandma! I want to crush, and this means weighing less than 200 after seven days... My god. In all seriousness, for those of you that have climbed with me before, it was fun, but I'm calling it quits, this week is going to change me... Until next post, climb hard for me, I'll be dreaming of da rocks.

Random ass Pictures!!!

Salty Air, Sandy Feet, Stuffed Belly

I've arrived in Destin, Florida for a week of relaxing with the family.  Yessir, the breeze, the sand, and plenty of food means good times.  

I'll leave you guys with a little motivation, I know I need some.....

Oklahoma Special

I don't understand why life is so cruel. As my dreams switch from the problems here in the Southeast to those located in my home land Oklahoma, I can't help but thinking about some of my favorite places. The problem is, the best problems in Oklahoma are now off limits, thanks to private property and stingy owners. The Farm, as it has been called, consists of beautiful sandstone boulders perched next to a farm overlooking the beautiful rolling hills in Bartlesville, OK. With a few projects there that have to clock in at V10 or harder, this area is truly the future of bouldering around the Tulsa area. Now I'm not saying this place is a destination, but for the rock starved Tulsa area locals, the best sandstone bouldering around is no longer accessible. So damn...... damn, damn, damn! I wish I could go back one more time, and do some classics like the one's shown below.

An Ungraded Unnamed Classic

Zack on "Serious Ju-Ju" (v5)

Moving Towards the Topout of "Resident Hard man" (Undone- v10?)

The Beginning of "Resident Hardman"

Sick! Just sick...

Another Undone Classic

Again, Undone Classic

So sweet dreams kiddos. If ANYONE has info on how to get in good with the owners of the Farm, you let me know.

Final are done son!

HELL YEAH! Finals are finally over and Christmas break is upon us... I'm pumped about going to NC and OK to do some crushing over the break. I hope every one's life is in good order, and that everything is going hunky dory. My roommate and I have been drinking since noon (our last final was easy-peasy) and I'm pretty drunk as a result. Now is the time to celebrate the season, so drink up! I'll try to post as much as I can during the break. Bah humbug, and good riddens to those able to climb around the Southeast during the break....

Spring Break - '08

A crew of us from Auburn went to Joes Valley for spring break this year. The vibes were good, the temps were good, and the blocs were amazing.... this was the result.

Give it up to the main man Alex on the badass sends. I hear he's doing pretty well in Cali too (sending v13??? Hot Damn!). In other news, I hear that Brooks Walker is super close on Ghetto Superstar, and Taylor Forsyth is close to Popeye @HP40..... and to that I say sick! Send those mugs!

I'm also pretty psyched about going to Rumbling Bald on the 28th of this month, if anyone wants to meet up let me know... It's going to be a solo trip if not!

So cheers everyone! The holidays are coming.... only two more finals left!

My very first Blog

Son, my first blog.... Sounds too good to be true.  Start out with a few pictures and maybe a video....

I was super close on on golden harvest over thanksgiving... I can't wait to get back on it. Unfortunately, it looks like the weather is turning to shite for Wednesday, which is my last day to try it this year.  Here's a little vid of a couple of goes, I know it looks like I'm far away from it, but I've done all the moves(except stick the one hard one), and once I do that it's over. Sooo psyched...

How about some random ass photos?

It's sunrise at the Keyhole, and I haven't slept in 24 hours.... plus I have to shit.
