While most of us enjoy the comfort of cushy bolts, positive holds, and a reasonable amount of safety on the rock, others—like Will Stanhope—seek out just the opposite: the hard-to-protect, the finicky, and the downright bold. In Cameron “Bearcam” Maier’s latest production, join Stanhope and Sonnie Trotter in Tasmania, as they explore the area’s ocean-blasted cliffs and sea stacks … all while harnessing the power “as a guide.”

This film isn’t another 5.15 crusher-send and it’s not just your cookie-cutter edit of the burn. Instead, it features thoughtful filmmaking, a humorous storyline, and soundtrack-supported rock climbing that will have you itching to get off your computer and back outdoors.

I need to buy a plane ticket. After a few months of Chicago winter, with ever mounting stresses and pressures at work, I should be jumping at the chance to escape on a climbing trip. Instead, I’m afraid.

I wrote before about a scary fall that happened while I was climbing in the Red this autumn. Since then, I’ve been working to regain and improve my leading confidence, but it hasn’t been an easy road. I need this trip, I need this time in the outdoors because daily life leaves me tired, stressed, and depleted. But I’m afraid, because I’m worried that I’ll want confidence and mastery that I probably won’t have on my first outdoor trip in over 3 months. I’m wanting climbing to be easy and restorative, but I’m not sure that it will be.

I’ve recently started practicing yoga. It’s been more challenging and rewarding than I thought. One of the things I’m learning in yoga is to accept what my body can do on a particular day, to not force poses I’m ready for.

Great blog post from Heidi Wirtz over at the North Face website, and some beautiful photos. Click through for the post.

I want to try to take what I’m learning in yoga and apply it to my climbing. When I get back out again, I want to be present in my body and my mind–accept what I’m ready to do and try not to force the rest. Though it’s not in my nature, I want to trick myself into becoming a beginner again.

Everyone takes time off, from the most earnest beginner ripping off skin on huge jugs, to the seasoned climbers who suffer injury or accident. Sometimes it’s work that gets in the way, sometimes it’s family, or travel.

To get started again: Let go of what was, what you used to be able to do. Accept where you are right now and be present. Do what you can one day at a time, listen to your body. Breathe in and begin again.

I don’t usually post photos of indoor bouldering but this stemming problem was awesome! And I look like Michael Jordan/Air Jordans logo.

Note to self: set this in my home gym!
