V10 First Ascent in West Virginia

Hyalite Canyon: A Photo Story

These photos are meant to show the ice and landscape of Hyalite Canyon in Bozeman, MT.

Two years ago a friend, Justin Willis, introduced me to ice climbing, and the mecca that was in our back yard. Justin grew to be a popular subject in my work as well as Hyalite Canyon. There is so much climbing to do in Hyalite it is over whelming. Between ticking off lines and trying to shoot everything, I feel there is a life times work there. These photos just scratch the surface.

“Where’s home for you?” someone asked me. And I paused just a moment too long—not because I’d forgotten, but because I wasn’t quite sure.

I have a house.  It came with a mortgage and a permanent address I can use to fill out forms with, a working oven and a pink carpet, some well-hidden stains. The pink carpeting is gone now. The mortgage isn’t.

I have a van, too. It came with four tires and a wheelchair lift, a working engine and grey paneling, some well-hidden rust. There’s wood on the walls now, a bed and a sink that burps up clean water whenever I want to brush my teeth. The wheelchair lift is gone now. The rust isn’t.

But ask me where home is, and I can’t think of an answer. All I have for you is what I scribbled down in a torn-up notebook in New Zealand, peeling off socks dampened by a wind-and-hail storm sent by Zeus, in a van with a dead battery, wondering what we were going to do next. I try to read it every once and again when I need a reminder. Or when I walk down the “your house looks like shit” aisle of Target.

“Home, for me, has never felt like four walls. A front door. The potted plants that keep dying because I forget to water them. The candles I’ll buy and never have matches to light with. Home usually feels more like screaming muscles and an overstuffed pack. A companion (furry or otherwise) and a horizon. Ramen noodles and heavy eyelids straining to stay open while I decipher the galaxy between the poor lost souls splattered on a windshield. The smell of a down jacket one washing past due and no plans for tomorrow. So when I say I’m homesick, now you know what I mean.”

Article about how we, as a global climbing community can support and preserve a beachside climbing treasure. I am by no means an expert on the current state of the politics and development initiatives of Tonsai, Thailand. However, after a recent trip, I heard a lot about how the Tonsai Beach community is dying slowly. I believe we can learn from other initiatives to continue to keep people climbing at Tonsai.

Jule Wurm won the World Championship in 2014. She stopped competing after winning the Euro Championship in 2015 in order to focus on her medical studies. Outdoors she continues to push hard and this week she did two 8A+'s, 5 TEC-B36-L5 and Zarzaparrilla Albarracin. What is your climbing life like nowadays? How about a comeback and the Olympics?Life is good, thanks:). Quite a lot of rock climbing recently. Jan (Hojer, who has flashed Bindu 8A+ (B)) and I have been to Font for a few weeks in January, then Pedriza (due to rain in Albarracin, but it turned out to be a very good alternative) and now we're in Albarracin for one week! I don't see me competing in the Olympics. So, no comeback I think, but you never know;) I really enjoy having more time for rockclimbing since I stopped competing in the Worldcup circuit.

Hyalite Canyon, located just outside of Bozeman, Montana is a mecca for ice climbers. Just about every day, be it the weekend or the middle of the week, you can find handfuls of parties exploring the hundreds of climbs found in the area.

If you show up late in the afternoon you’ll find teams drinking beers in the parking lot, as others head up to the main wall to top rope after work. These photos show a few of the climbers, moderates, and classic climbs of the canyon.
