First V5 and with a dyno! The hold was about 4 ft away. The trick was to start low and jump towards the wall, not up because it would throw you away from the wall due to the sloping base.

BUDDY CLIMB: these climbs require you working together with your fellow climbers. There are multiple different ways you can do these depending on your capabilities and the holds. It's not always realistic to piggyback your partner across the wall and neither is it safe to put your full weight on their extremities!
Thank you to my friend for volunteering to help me out with this one! You "carried" the team! 🤣
Unreal climbing session with @ben.a.mackenzie yesterday. It’s nice to be back. I was climbing casually for a few months, broke my foot, had a few months out, and now I’m back at it. More focused, more dedicated and getting stronger.
I’ll vlog it soon, promise 😘. What was the last thing you did to move and use your body in a new way?
We’re built to move, go use it 🧗♂️
When you get off the glacier and rock climbing just can’t wait 🧗♂️
We were not able to summit Chimborazo this morning because above-freezing temperatures were causing instability in the cliffs above and dangerous rockfall along our route. Such is the way with mountains sometimes.... As consolation, we did some climbing in a gorgeous valley (La Chorrera) littered with sport routes at the base of Chimborazo. We may not have packed our climbing shoes, but of course that didn’t stop us 🤣
