Our stay in the Red Rocks also aligned with the Red Rock Rendezvous. Arc'teryx invited me to come out and teach some clinics for it, it was also the perfect chance to get to know the Arc' crew who were of course awesome!

I found some incredible flow on a variety of single pitch cracks, consistently on sighting 5.11+ to 5.12-. I haven't been this inspired in years! We are already planning our fall return to this sandstone paradise.

And then began the northward migration, en route to Squamish, BC. I was invited to speak at Multiplicity, an event put on by Mountain Life Magazine. The format for the event was 8 guest speakers, each have 9 minutes to talk about whatever they want, in front of over 1200 people! I had never done anything like this before, I was incredibly nervous but incredibly excited and up for the challenge. It was such an amazing night.

And then before I knew it, I was home and back into the full swing of things with On the Rocks! This year is extra exciting as I have decided to expand my business to the Milton region and I've also hired two new awesome guides to help run the show! I was quite nervous about this endeavour as I had to drop thousands of dollars into gear/advertising, but it is proving to be worth it! My good friend Steve Andrew is running the show in Milton, and he is trying to turn his dream of becoming a full time climbing guide into a reality, and I am super stoked to help him achieve it because he totally rocks.

Just want to say a big giant massive huge thank you to all of my sponsors for hanging in with me through it all. Your belief in me and continued support inspire me to continue to follow my dreams. I wouldn't be where I am today without you all. Arc'teryx, Sterling Rope, La Sportiva, Flashed, Sun Ski, Sanuk, The Yoak
