WHAT A CRAZY WEEKEND I HAVE HAD! so on friday i packed all of my stuff into my car exepcting that after work i was going to run to twin pick up cory and go to the sawtooths and go climbing! it was going to be fun i was super exceited. i had one last job todo before the great trip started so i got in my car and headed for the school i was working at. i made it about 1/2 a mile from the job sight and a gentel men in a 63 dodge ran a stop sign while i was in the intersection great fun right? well need less to say my weekend plans changed. so after this car hit me i did a 360 around his truck and my tail was in the other lane and then another car hit me because he didn't have enough time to stop which sucked so i got hit two time and guess what happened to me nothing major at all i am fine i just have a stiff back that is it. the guy that was in the truck hurt his leg and his back and the other car i haven't heard but nothing bad i know that so my weekend wasn't as fun as i was hoping i am sore. but i shouldn't complain i am fine i walked away from that crash i thank heavelny father for his help in keeping me save. but in brigter news i will get a new car in amonth or two! well i hope everyone else had a great weekend. mine wasn't very fun but i am able to go to the next week. well talk to you all soon. pump is in a few more weeks see you all then!!!!

WOW!!! How time has flown by it has been about 2 or 3 months since I have wrote in my blog or really talked to anyone that reads the blog and I get this call today from a great friend and he told me that I need to up date my blog and tell people what I have been up to! So this is my attempt to update on what has happened over the last few weeks. My girl friend is home she has been home since the end of June I went down and picked her up so she has been a been taking up a lot my time I love her and I am so glad that she is home. The sad part is she goes home in about 2-3 weeks!!

My good friend Jared up and left me though he has moved to salt lake so I don’t have a close climbing partner anymore it has been really boring at the rec with out my good friend jared but he has moved on to better things and I wish him the best of luck. I have been climbing with corey a bunch, me and him climb about once a week with each other but the last few weeks it has been slow we haven’t been able to climb as much as we would like.

I am moving on with my jobs I am headed to work for my dad again he is paying me more and it will be good for me I haven’t had to truly work in a while my job at the hotel isn’t really that hard and I would like to stay more busy and be more productive! So today is my last day at the hotel I am happy and sad I have some great friends at the hotel and I am going to miss there friendship but I am moving on to new things.

Life is good for me I have had a great summer but as the summer comes to a closes I am getting ready for school and for the climbing comp season I can’t wait to see everyone at the Pocatello pump in a month. I hope that everyone is doing great and that life is treating you well. Please don’t for get about the little climbing in Idaho stop by say hell or leave a comment. Hope to see you all soon

the crazy travelers

how sad is this i haven't posted in over a month i need to get better at this, so over the last few weeks i have been climbing like crazy traveling back and forth from twin i go down about once a week and go climb with Cory it has been super fun! 2weeks ago i went down and trad climbed sweet line even thought there was bolts right next to it. the line was pure and i really wanted to trad the line so off i went i started climbing super easy then it get to this big bulg super cool part and the crux so i place a BD #2 before i started up the crux that i would say is a good 8-10 feet! i make it up the first four feet with out a problem then i decided to place another peice this being a micro cam from BD .2 small and scary to place so i am just about to pull through the crux and my hands start giving out and sliding out of the crack so i jam it back into the crack and i start sliding out so i am playing this game with my self finger jamming this slopper crack and then i look at my last piece and just hope that it will stay and off i come only putting a 5-6 foot fall in but this is on a micro cam so just a little scared no i was a lot scared but it held and it was an awesome climb! i climbed it right after i chalked the hell out of my hands and the crack. that was the first trad fall of the season and it was a great one. so i have been climbing a lot between here and there and then i had a class fall through at the REC! so i called Cory up and said hey want to drive with me to California on Friday night? he said sure then he also recalled a canyon in the middle of no where that he has wanted to climb in, so i said we could stop at it on the way home so he was super excited for this trip.

so the trip starts to twin and i go pick Cory up from twin it is about 2:15 or so and we hit the road with 11 hours ahead of us i get into drive mode and just crank out about 5.75 hours then i see this canyon and i asked him if this was the one and he said yes so i am just drilling over the lines that i can see from the road but we just keep driving and i we both looked at each other and i told him on the way back he said ok. these lines looked sick. so we make it to vegas around 9:15 or so and fill up on food and gas then we hit the road with another 3.5 hours so to shorten up this up. we make it to Alta loma and i drop cory off at his sisters and then i drive over to loma linda another 30 mins in the car and went to bed at kates home. saturday we went to church it was good he talked about how we need to be prepared for death and not scared of it. it was just a great points. then we went back to the house and changed into some hiking shoes and jeans and we went up to what is called forest falls it was really cool the water was super cold and i am so glad that i didn't have to get into it. then we went back to the house got her studying stuff went to the store bought some food then we went to a house she was watching and i made her dinner it was fun. after dinner she studied i rested/naped then we went back to her house and went to bed i left sunday morning picked up cory and headed back it was a great weekend on the way back we stopped at the canyon it was impressive much taller then it looks from the road there ended up being ancores on the top which wassn't expected so that made it nice but a 5.9 5.10 crack was super cool place ments were good rock was solid and it was a sweet line after that line and an hour and a half later we hit the road again 8 more hours from there and i got home around 1:30am it was a great trip and i am so thankful for my crazy friends that will drive with me for 26 hours so that we can go climbing and see friends and family so thanks Cory! well i am off to work enjoy everyone and Hope to see everyone soon


ps cory, jared and I will be at city and castle this weekend if anyone wants to join let us know

isn't weather great

so i just want everyone to know that the weather is crazy if you have been stuck inside you are not missing much i drove to twin on wed the worst day of the week to do some climbing in a lava tube. it is a really fun place to climb but the holds are really sharp! the drive down wasn't bad just windy not to wet, so we meet cory at the flying jay right off the freeway it started to rain but this didn't bother me because this cave is so over hung it doesn't matter really what it is doing out side you should stay dry. so we drive out there it it just keeps getting worse rain turns to snow and it is super windy! so we park the car and almost run out to the cave get in the cave and climb for a little bit it was good a little cold for my liking but we climbed anyways! so it finally gets Dark and we can't see anymore it the cave so we start to head out and what do we find we find about 1" to 2" of snow on the ground. come on it is april it shouldn't be snowing so we get in the car and start to head back and it was white out conditions it sucked by the time we made it to twin it was back to a rain but the weather was super weird. so i really wrote this blog to just take some time out of work i have a long day ahead of me and it is going to be a slow one! but i do get to go get on a plane later today i am flying down to california to see Kate so i am super excited for that but i have to wait until tonight i don't leave until 7:00 but that is ok!

well life is good here i am just hanging inthere i am still climbing and traveling alot and i work as well but i prefre climbing of course hope all of you are doing well stay out of trouble and hope to see everyone soon. have a terriffic day and climb hard

wow a whole month

holy cow it has been a month since i have posted how sad!a lothas happened over the last few weeks we had comps to climb and set at, we have had good weather, so i have been climbing as much as possible! i have been attempting this climb that is only a 13a but for some reason it wont let me finish it i just come flying off at the top which might i say sucks, i hate it when you are 4 feet from the end and you can't hang on it makes you feel week but it is such a great route and that is why i keep going back to it! we had spring break 2 weeks ago and my Kate came home for the week so i was able to hang out with her for a week which was really nice. she is such a great person and i am so happy that i know her. i took her caving and she was awesome she said she would never do it again but she hung in there and made it all the way through! so thanks Kate for being adventurous! this last weekend i went to the city of rocks and did some fun lines found this 12c/d that is super cool has a roof in it, can't wait to do that one again. it was so much balance and so technical i really liked it.

this month is just full of climbing and travel! this next week i am heading to Moscow for a big comp and it should be super fun and then we are hopefully stopping in Riggins to do some bouldering. then the next weekend i am flying down to California to go see Kate and go to the beach and it should be super fun also, the last week in April i might be going to SLC to go see some friends so that should be a blast as well!

i hope everyone is doing well and i hope that we all have a trip together soon. because i miss the wonderful people of eastern Idaho and we should all go climbing or camping or better yet both well i need to get back to work hope to hear from you all soon
