LT11 makes awesome videos. One of the main things I like about them is they include boulder problems that are <V10. Don’t get me wrong, watching Paul Robinson and Daniel Woods crush V15 is cool and all, but all of those problems are unattainable to me. Seeing a rad-ass V6 is more fun for me to watch because I know I could go out and work that problem.

Also, are those some awesome Stonelick pads I see? Yes they are!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am pleased to announce that on Saturday, November 3rd, I will be competing in the Horse Pens 40 leg of the Triple Crown Bouldering Series. I will leave this coming Friday, and return to Jacksonville on Sunday. I have

 been training daily for over a month, and twice a day for two weeks leading up to the comp. I’m feeling good, and getting stronger every day. I’M SUPER STOKED!!!!

Also, I’d like to thank a few people for their support (even if they feel like they are feeding my addiction:P )
Amy Harris, Neal Harris, Leslie Collier, Rafa Gonzalez, Michael Wiedeman, and Sierra Blair-Coyle. You guys help me keep my dream alive!

P.S. Shout out to STONELICK! I will be trying to convert as many potential buyers as possible! Great product, great price, great service!

Part of the reason we started STONELICK is because of our love for the sense of American wildness and adventure that climbers embody. We hope to contribute to that.

When we picked up a copy of The Stone Masters: Rock Climbers of the Seventies we were struck by how John Long and Dean Fidelman captured that vibe perfectly. 

The photos are 1970’s vintage Americana perfection and the stories range from insane to inspiring. 


Yeah, it’s pretty dope…

So You Wanna be a Rock Climber

It’s a new year and many of you out there are taking up rock climbing as a new activity.  STONELICK is owned and managed by climbers, so here is our take on getting into the most addictive sport you could ever try…

  • You’re going to need a pair of shoes.  If you’re just starting out, you don’t need a great pair of climbing shoes.  Bad footwork = quickly worn out shoes.  What you should look for is a cheap, COMFORTABLE pair of climbing shoes.  The only way to know which shoe is right for you is to try them on.  Each brand has all types of shoes and each one has a distinct fit, so try them all on before you decide to buy. 
  • Take it slow.  Climbing is an activity that you can do most of your life.  Take your time.  The more time you put into it, the more you’ll get back in return.  It’s a physically demanding sport that requires not only muscular strength, but also tendon strength, technique and experience. 
  • Don’t compare yourself to others.  Climbing is all about seeing yourself grow physically, mentally and spiritually.  The most important thing is to enjoy what you’re doing, not be the “best”.  There’s always someone out there stronger than you, so climb for the right reasons.
  • Take advice from other climbers with a grain of salt.  No doubt, we all get beta at the gym or local crag.  Some of it is mind-blowing and some of it is b.s. 
  • Read, Read, READ.  The best knowledge for becoming a solid climber is already out there.  The more you read, the more you know.  Some recommendations are “The Self Coached Climber” by Dan Hague and Douglas Hunter and “How to Rock Climb” by John Long. 
  • Practice makes perfect.  I personally don’t think you will see much results if you climb less than three times a week.  Climbing is a physical sport and requires some level of participation.  The good news is that as you progress you will enjoy the sport more and more. 
  • Make sure to rest.  Climbing is a lifestyle.  It is something many embrace with incredible passion and sometimes it’s difficult to take a break.  Taking a day or two of rest will help your body regenerate.

Now, go get ‘em!

Not only are we thrilled of having our pads in EMS, but the wonderful crew asks us all, “Why do you climb?” So, tell us. WHY DO YOU CLIMB?


Seriously guys, like our Facebook and check out details for a free crash pad. This is no Halloween hoax! Spread the word! Reblog!

Also, we’ve been climbing these rocks since Monday. Pretty sweet. Getting stronger each day. Living out of a van ain’t so bad. I mean, this is how my day goes: Eat. Climb. Sleep. Repeat

(not a pic of me, just folks I’ve been climbing with)
