It was bittersweet to see this video play before a packed house at the NOLS 50th anniversary a couple weekends ago. The intro piece was my last project with them and Kirk & Brian used a bunch of my footage throughout the second chapter which reminded me of so many excellent trips. Thanks for the great run NOLS!

Got some of my climbing footage used in a big time commercial! Check out my buddy Graham climbing at Wild Iris @ 37 seconds in.

That shot was from an old classic, “Lander Rock Climbing” check it out here if you missed it a few years ago!

A not so common wedding story…

Brian and Mandy left their home on bicycles (rode 14 miles), hiked into the Cirque of the Towers in Wyoming’s Wind River Range (24 miles), climbed the Northeast Face of Pingora Peak (1,200′ of climbing, 11,884′ summit elevation, Grade IV, 5.8, 9 pitches), got married, and reversed the approach. On their wedding day they were awake and moving for 24 hours, the entire trip was just under 45 hours.

Special thanks to Jamie O’Donnell for officiating and Sam Lightner Jr. for being the Maid of Honor.

This was by far the most unique and fun wedding I’ve been to, thanks Mandy & Brian for inviting me to be part of your special day!

Alaska is cool. It’s really big. I’ve had the pleasure of working and filming up there a few times now with the NOLS on Denali, in the Alaska Range, and in Prince William Sound. Check it out! Big thanks to Andy and George at Distill for sharing footage from the upcoming Expedition Denali film!

A little bit of unused footage from last years feature film, “Wind & Rattlesnakes” (vimeo.com/78859472). BJ Tilden ups the ante to 5.14C on the hardest route in Sinks Canyon near Lander, Wyoming.

I spent most of the winter in the Middle East doing some freelance for a company called Absolute Adventure. They are an outdoor education and guiding company based out of Dubai that runs the majority of their programs in the Sultanate of Oman (where top level rock climbers Alex Honnold and Chris Sharma have visited recently and gathered considerable media attention). It is indeed a beautiful area that is ripe for exploration and adventure, check out one of the three new promos I made for the company.

I just posted my first feature length documentary online! A historical rock climbing film centered around my current home, Lander, Wyoming. At nearly two years in the making it was a huge labor of love and I couldn’t be happier with it.  windandrattlesnakes.com

Expedition Denali Teaser

The Expedition Denali NOLS trip was a huge success. Including media and support crew we got 19 people to 19,600 feet (only 700 feet shy of the top!) and were only thwarted from reaching the summit due to a crazy electrical storm, the likes of which one park ranger who has worked there for 15 years said he has never seen. I could hear electricity in my ears… needless to say everyone was happy to just get back down safely. Distill has released a great teaser for the Kickstarter backers (that includes a bunch of my shots!) and we’re all eagerly awaiting to see what they produce for a documentary over the next year.

Wind & Rattlesnakes finally premiered last month at Lander’s annual climbers’ festival. We packed the house at the high school auditorium and people were psyched! Next step, submitting it to the festivals!
