When was the last time you did something for the first time?

One of my favorite things: exploring places I’ve never been.

Stoked to stumble upon this sweet climbing spot. No other humans, just some footsteps in the dirt, some lizards between rocks, pine cones on the ground and trees with the backdrop of the el dorado forest. Wild to think it’s just next door to the Leap, a place I frequent.

No google maps, just walking in circles, re-learning to follow intuition. Happy to have spent the last weekend in the woods - feeling Prana on my breath, in the buzz of the crickets and the sound of the river while sleeping. All the necessary ingredients for reconnecting to the Earth.

First photos snapped by the one and only @jrmakesart - me on Pony Express, a fun 5.8 at Sugarloaf. Last two photos, Vincent Van Go and JR rompin around.

In denial that summer days like this, way up high, are over.

When life hands you lemons 🍋, crush them and train harder. One surgery down ✔, and one to go in a week. Ready to be past both surgeries so I can focus on healing and training my fingers&shoulders. 5.10 ✔ . .

Trying out this whole "climbing" thing again.
Haven't hit the road in a long long time and missing the community of it all.
But, Diana, you're soooo social! People always say.

This is true.

But I feel so far out of the game, out of the scene, I wonder sometimes if I'll find my way back in.
Anybody else feeling the pull of distance?

I’ve felt like I’ve had a pretty lackluster climbing year so far. I reached a personal peak last fall, and then stopped climbing consistently in the first half of this year when I got a dog and had to figure out how to take care of both of us. I’ve been feeling a lot weaker, and have been struggling mentally on lead since then.

Moving to North Carolina didn’t help at all - both the gym and outdoor grades are stiffer than what I’m used to. I tried to convince myself that the work I was putting in was paying off and that I was progressing and on the right track, but it was hard to really believe and internalize that when I suddenly dropped a few grades on top of everything else.

But yesterday, I led my first outdoor 5.10c ever. I didn’t think I could do it, but @india_ink kept hyping the route up, and I figured if I couldn’t get all the way up it, I could stick clip up or she’d be able to finish it. It took me a good chunk of time to figure out the moves and really commit to some of them, but eventually, I got around to clipping those chains.

I’ve got a few climbing trips coming up and I’m SO stoked about climbing and climbing hard again, more than I’ve been in a very long time.

Huge thanks to India for healthily pressuring me into trying it and for the most patient and wonderful belay, and also thanks to all the Austin friends that came out to climb and hang out with me for the day even though I only gave y’all like three days notice that I’d be visiting. ❤️

‘Space Below My Feet’ was written by Gwen Moffat in 1961. Moffat was the first woman to become a certified mountain guide in Britain in the 40’s. She recounts a life of exploration in a time that demanded boldness and ambition to accomplish such a feat. 
Our company’s name is inspired by this story and celebrates those who paved the way for today. 🙌🏽🌞🌚⛰ .

Another mini dream came true last week when I finally had the chance to make it out to the Niagara Glen.
.
Since starting up bouldering a couple years ago I have always wanted to get away to the glen and get some outdoor bouldering done. It finally happened and I couldn’t be more excited to do it again!
.
Huge thank you to @climbjunction for renting the crash-pads to make this little expedition a safe one! Biggest thank you my spotter and all around incredible human @vpeps37

Definitely got sucked into the B-Hole (aka. Black Hole, V10/11) this summer, a place where space and time lose all meaning... 😂 Although I didn't emerge victorious, I don't regret a single moment working on this super stout proj with so many amazing climbers! But tbh, it will haunt my dreams 🌀 and I can't wait to get back on it! #bhole4life

Let me chalk up before I attack this killer roof... Actually this was my kind of roof - small, juggy, pure fun, and doable without grunts, ripping your arm out of its socket, or bursting an artery. Why can’t roofs all be this way?

Yesterday was my last day of outdoor Ontario climbing, before heading out for #vanlife for a year. I didn't get to send a last mini-proj, but it was a great cap off to a fun season here. Despite being a little wistful that I won't get to tick off all the old projects, I just counted and realized that this has been my most successful season yet, ticking over 10 5.12's and up this year, and more importantly, climbing with the best crews of people out there! Thanks to all my friends for an awesome season....don't send everything without me!! And come visit us on the road! T-minus 14 days 📸of post-send happiness by @willtam85 .

🎶 I get knocked down, but I get up again. You are never gonna keep me down...🎶 I haven't been climbing much lately, so it wasn't surprising that I fell so many times off this problem 😣 Committing to moves on a boulder is way tougher for me mentally, but I'll keep trying bc I know there's value in it ✨ #mondaymotivation #justkeepswimming #climbon

Ruby Mountains: making it really hard to work five days in a row

Ruby Mountains: making it really hard to work five days in a row

Checking out the view from the top of Organ Pipes. Bit hard to find, but the upper crack was definitely worth the loose gully approach. Lumpy might have the best rock I've seen in Colorado. It's certainly my favorite crag. I love living an hour away from such a fun playground with such mellow approaches. .

It's certainly my favorite crag. I love living an hour away from such a fun playground with such mellow approaches. . . . . #tradisrad #tradclimbing #estespark #colorado #colorfulcolorado #ladycrushers #rockclimbingwomen #andshesdopetoo #forceofnature #flashfoxy #mountaingirls #lumpyridge #summit

Today definitely feels like fall. I’m not sure if I’m more excited for lazy fall days, cozied up with a good book and coffee, or for sending temps... (let’s be honest, definitely stoked on laziness)
Either way, sending season is upon us!
Oh and p.s. if anyone wants to climb let me know, I need some partners!!
Thanks for the photo op @tammyfaye 😘

Obed trip this weekend. Conditions were an amazing 89 degrees and 70% humidity - you literally dripped sweat any time you moved. But this year we’re gonna practice the idea of no bad conditions, just bad attitudes. Led a few easier pitches, did all the moves on the bottom of Maximum Overdrive with some helpful beta from @fjwheeler. Didn’t get nearly as pumped as I normally do so have some good goals on lead for next time out to South Clear. Enjoyed having @thejessieann out with us and look forward to some more climbing adventures! Time to take some falls 😬

✨3 pitch magic✨ 1️⃣ We ventured out at sunrise to the desert in search of some slab. I was a bit concerned the night before as the forecast was for 109*F. The weather turned out way better than I could have imagined. Cloud cover lingered well after sunrise and provided us a beautiful day. 2️⃣ First pitch led by the calm, cool, and collected @mitchdoty 3️⃣ Ann making her way through the crux on the second pitch. 4️⃣ Just before topping out on the third and final pitch. 5️⃣ Hanging out at the belay station on the second pitch. 🤙 6️⃣ The rappel! Look at that boulder strewn  landscape. 💚

Today I got to climb in front of none other than Alex Puccio. Thank you for reminding me trust myself and trust my feet. Thank you for reminding me to check my ego at the door. And thank you for reminding me to be patient but also to push myself. ⁣
⁣
Reaching your goals takes time and perseverance. And hot dang is it easy to forget that. ⁣
⁣
The biggest take away: yes I’m good at crimps, but if I don’t train slopers, pinches, and weird body positions...I won’t get any better.

Everything is relative. It’s interesting to observe how perspectives shift. Smith Rock is often (lovingly) referred to as a mud pile and it certainly has its hollow and crumbly spots. When I first started climbing at Smith years ago I was hesitant to trust those little nubbins. It just seemed they would pop out or that flake would rip off. Now I find myself pretty comfortably trusting the rock at Smith because, compared to many of the climbs we’ve hit at Red Rock (especially on the WTF tour), Smith has bomber rock. 😆

A couple years ago I attended the REI @outessa Women’s Retreat, and one of the guest speakers talked about the time she went camping and wore lipstick.

She said her husband asked, “Why are you wearing lipstick for? No one is going to see you.” To which she replied, “Because I like it and it makes me feel good.”
.
This inspired me so much because literally the outdoors doesn’t care what you look like. Wear that lipstick. Rock your jewelry. Color coordinate your climbing outfits. Be cute and be fierce. #beyouroutsideself

Here I am being just that, my extra-ness et al.

"The aim of the Women’s Climbing Festival is to open an experimental space that helps us acknowledge the growing community of women climbers, build solidarity with one another, and play with the possibility of climbing differently. We want to re-imagine our relationships with climbing without feeling pressured to conform to masculine social norms, and for some of us, to subvert them."

Smith Rock is known for its welded tuff but it also has basalt and the climbing is very different. Usually when I’m at Smith I don’t climb the basalt (more on that in a sec).
⁣
My friend Tristan is here to help me at the Smith Rock Craggin’ Classic and to climb (yes, good friend!)⁣ Tristan is a northerner - lived in Alaska, now in a Washington, and he needs shade (even though it’s a cool 85 degrees to those of us from Vegas!). Well, the most quickly accessible shady place was the basalt columns at the Northern Point. ⁣
⁣
Since Tristan hadn’t climbed the basalt at Smith, I decided, ok, I’ll give the basalt another go. It kicked my ass — again! The rock is slick, bulgy, blocky, overhung, difficult to place protection, and it’s a style of climbing that, for whatever reason, doesn’t click with me.⁣
⁣
I started to lead a 5.8 that looked reasonable from the ground and damn! If I were on the WTF tour, it would’ve been a WTF 5.8. I bailed on the lead. Tristan tried and bailed too. I went around the top, feeling defeated, and set up a TR to finish the climb.
⁣
A guide soon arrived with a group. He pointed to that climb and said “that’s a damn hard 5.8 - I had to bail on it!” Thank you! I felt redeemed, but that’s not the first time I’ve had to bail on leads on the Smith basalt - haha! The ego can only take so much squishing, so I’m going back to the sharp crimps on welded tuff, thank you. •⁣

I’m so hyped for the things I’m working on, but also, just where my life is at right now. I haven’t been this content in a LONG time. ⁣
⁣
Thank you all for your patience as I’ve been going through this work transition. ⁣

Happy weekend babes! 💕⁣ ⁣ I’m so hyped for the things I’m working on, but also, just where my life is at right now. I haven’t been this content in a LONG time. ⁣ ⁣ Thank you all for your patience as I’ve been going through this work transition. ⁣ ⁣ I know I haven’t been as present on this page, but I am almost ready to get back in and start sharing more about my own healthy living journey and supporting you in yours. Get pumped! Love you!

Do you all know what time it is?  It’s time for some more inspiring stories of dealing with recovery on #feelgoodfridays.  This week our share comes from @tammyfaye and how she dealt with a knee injury, surgery and coming back to climbing!  Don’t forget to tag #womxnwhoclimb @womxnwhoclimb for your chance to be featured! . . . .
I tore my lateral meniscus running in the backcountry, at first I didn’t know that I had injured myself. I thought that my I.T. band was tight and acting up, causing pain around my knee- so I kept running and climbing on it. A few months go by and I can barely do everyday activities, let alone run or climb. Soon after that I got the devastating news that I would need knee surgery to repair my meniscus. The recovery was hard, I was locked straight in a knee immobilizer for 9 weeks I was on crutches for a month or so and the rest of the time using a cane to get around. I started P.T. Three days after my surgery, just basics, like trying to move my toes and eventually getting my knee to bend to 90. I progressed through the exercises faster than the predicted time, which I was psyched on, so my P.T. let me ride my bike! I was so excited to finally do something! I got my bike out and tried to ride down the road, but I couldn’t get my knee around the full rotation. I ended up riding a mile that day half one-footed. When I was 3.5 months into my recovery I was allowed to add some running in, and climbing as long as I was on top rope. I could run for 1 min on, 2 mins off, and I wasn’t allowed to go past 2 miles. At 4.5 months I was allowed to run any distance, up to 10 miles, as long as I walked all downhills. Today is 6 months post op and I just competed in my first “triathlon” It was different in a sense that it was a 3 day long event. Swim 2.4 miles in open water on Friday, bike 102 miles on Saturday, and run 12.4 miles, while gaining 3500ft on Sunday. I still have a decent way to go to get back to being fully strong again, but psyched on my progress!

A week ago, I was a week into climbing in the woods in Squamish. Today was full of meetings. Missing rock. Thoughts and pics soon.

This week didn’t quite go as planned. Plans fell through, I was too tired to motivate myself to go to the gym, and I ended up spending a lot of time on my couch. But you know what, that’s ok. Sometimes the world tells us that we need to rest, and it’s smart to listen. Sometimes it is best to take the time to just sit and let the world go by for a little bit. And take naps.

So sad to leave Squamish, which has been our home for the past two months, but really psyched to be able to cross one more proj off the list on our very last climbing day! One Zen (V10) ✔️ I will miss the forest and the boulders with all my heart, but I will definitely be back someday, better and stronger than ever!

@lizkimphotography making it look like I know what I’m doing. 😂

I want to take a moment to give gratitude to all the new friends I’ve made in LA so far, all because of climbing. The community here has been so kind and welcoming. Even for the most extroverted person in the world — on a scale of 1-10, I go to 11 — sometimes it still is hard to put yourself out there and try to make connections with strangers, hoping that y’all vibe. There are moments when it’s easier for me to stay cooped up in my apartment than to motivate myself to go climb. But let me tell you, every single time I get myself out there to meet new folks, my energy levels are rebooted and I’m the happiest woman in the world.

This week has been awesome. Here’s to more amazing weeks to come. 🙌

Feeling #blessed to have such a deep bench of awesome climbing partners around this fall. Mega grateful to belaydies Haiyan and Christina for committing a weekend to learning and practicing self-rescue and safety skills together! #flashfoxy #tradisrad

Belaying and blending in with an alpine lake. Things I’m good at. Thanks for the fun photo @jeff.bond.wong

Strangely enough, you CAN climb with 130+ other climbers in a hot, humid bouldering cave & still manage to have fun 😅🧐 Thank you @trianglerockclub_rva for hosting the #boulderbash! For those of you interested, I wrote a blog post detailing the ins & outs of my first comp experience #linkinbio 📸 @wwilkerson2 •

Thank you @tony.archie for the photo and for all the beautiful days of friendship after we woke up parked next to each other. "Flingus Cling" at Pet Wall went pretty quick for me in 4 goes and was the only Squamish sport climb I did on this trip. I owe the send energy to a relaxing paddle board session on the lake.

The climbing community of El Potrero Chico is welcoming, international and full of good stories. The history is unique, and the climbing routes in this valley have been developed over the last few decades. The quality of the routes are proof of the work and effort that have been put into bolting these steep cliffs. 
Rock climbers arrive to Potrero from all over the world. You get to sleep practically below the rock alongside others who are just as stoked as you to be out there. Rock climbers stroll through the Valley from sunrise to sunset covered in sweat and dirt from a day of climbing routes, short and long.

Space Below Your Feet is beyond stoked to offer this exploration through a five-day, all accommodation adventure. Details on webpage, link in bio*. Registration is now open! 📸 @acarterclark

#tbt Someone asked me the other day if there’s a certain grade I started trad leading at before I wasn’t stressed AF whole time. For me, it wasn’t a certain grade but rather, the mileage. The more climbs I got on, it didn’t matter if it was moderate or harder, it gave me more confidence until one day I realized that I wasn’t gripped on the entire route and just enjoying myself. I’m hoping it’ll begin to feel that way in the alpine one day. 📷 of that one time that @tammyfaye and I narrowly avoided a lightning storm on the top of Daff Dome by deciding to simul rap. 😜⛈ Excited to squeeze in a few more High Sierra days in at the beginning of next month!

A little over two years ago, I climbed my first trad route. I remember a pit settling in my stomach as @the.climbing.life explained my role as the follower.
+
What if a piece of gear got stuck? Does Mike really know what he's doing? What if his gear placements are shitty? What if he falls and pulls me with him to our deaths?
+
These were the ridiculous worries that played out in my head. I was completely new to the trad game, and I was terrified. I kept insisting to Mike that I would never be a trad climber, that I was a sport climber to my very core.

We climbed a 5.6 route—6 pitches of breezy climbing.

Except it wasn't. The final 2 pitches traversed a narrow ridge with 500ft of exposure on either side. At the time, it was the most exposed climb I'd done. As I began gingerly moving my way along the 5th pitch, my heart in my throat, I heard Mike shout, "I didn't place much gear here, so try not to fall! If you do, you'll swing really far and have a bad time!"
+
No. Nonononono.
I spent the next five minutes white-knuckling the rock, my entire body frozen in fear. Tears streamed down my face as I failed to choke back the sobs welling in my throat.

Eventually, with much coaxing from Mike, I made it to the end of the pitch, and the next one. We topped out the climb with goofy grins on our faces, then made our way to the next climb.

At the end of the day, Mike asked, "So, are you a trad climber now?" I felt the shame and embarrassment from my earlier meltdown welling up. That was not the climber I knew myself to be. I shook my head. "Nah, I think I'll stick to what I'm good at."
+
In this photo, taken 2 weeks ago, I am standing before a 10-pitch, 5.6 trad climb. The entire climb traverses a narrow ridge with a minimum of 1000ft of exposure on either side. Easy climbing if you can ignore the exposure.

I led the entire climb, cheering my way through all 10 pitches. My brain barely registered the finger-width ledges I traversed, or the sketchy bouldery moves that left nothing but air below me. The exposure never got to me, and I topped out the summit glowing with pride.
+
My, what a difference 2 years makes.

It turns out I'm a trad climber after all. 😉

A highlight from my time in Salt Lake:
Last Tuesday, I met @huntergvozdich and Sandy at the BD Headquarters at 5pm and drove up to Little Cottonwood to sneak in a session at the end of a busy work day. The mood lightened as we hiked and traded shop talk for spray. ⭐️
@pullphoto said something funny when I was pulling onto the climb, so I started out laughing. The send go was remarkable in all the usual ways that a good send go is- I placed a cam incorrectly and had to run out the crux, wrapped the rope around my neck while trying to cartwheel out of the crack and had to unhook myself before continuing, fought hard at the end when I thought I was going to puke. And then it was over, and I went back to belay Sandy. ⭐️
And it occurred to me that what was really remarkable about the experience was how normal it was. Sometimes we overemphasize the struggle. Life is hard. It will, of course, present us with challenges. But some days we go rock climbing with our friends and we send and we laugh and we have an excellent burrito when we get back at 10pm. And that is enough 💜
Thanks Trench Warfare for  showing me a nice time in SLC 🤗
