Mountain Madness Gear List


The mail came and with it a big white envelope. Inside was a crisp new Mountain Madness t-shirt and a spiral bound booklet detailing all of the particulars for the trip. It included gear list, first aid list, itinerary……all of the things to make this trip real. I have sent in my deposit and am getting ready to send in another chunk of money soon. I will be eyeing flight cost to Kathmandu as well, since that will be separate from my Mountain Madness costs. I had a butterfly in my stomach as the reality of the trip set in. Now, the dream is tangible in ways it has not yet been. More… Much, much more, to come.

Magic Bus Wall @ Red Rock


I was happy to get out and enjoy a brisk February morning in Red Rock. For me, it was hiking and not climbing because I failed to read the update that told us to bring the gear! But none the less, I had a great hike and a wonderful day.

It started with a decent into the basin and then a climb over boulders to the Magic Bus Wall. My lungs worked hard! I am noticing that the CrossFit is making me more flexible and a little faster. I also feel like my balance is improving, though on all fronts I have a lot of work to do.

I got a great video of Kristen leading Electric Slide! It is a 5.9+ and she was apprehensive to do it…but she did a great job and what fun to watch.

It is always so much fun to meet new climbers and see some that I don’t see often. The guys are true gentlemen and th women are amazing! This is a great environment in which to make positive physical gains and enjoy life!
