Winter Blows!

First of all, who is the dumbass that commits to a climbing challenge in the middle of winter.  It’s this dumbass.  The climbing isn’t the issue it is the cold and the damn wind. The wind is my enemy.

This week family plans and crazy weather made things difficult.  If I take more than 2 days off during the week I am a dead man.  I was doing the math on day 15 and I was behind by 3,000 feet.  That was so demoralizing.  I plan on doing 1,100 feet on average per day which gives me a tiny buffer but not when you skip days.  The east coast is expecting a foot of snow this upcoming week so I am trying to catch up on my missed elevation.  I don’t want to get to a point of no return.  So I banged out a 3,000+ft day and got back on point.  On too week number 3.

Be Awesome.  Inspire People.

  1. I’m glad you are doing this. I am really enjoying your pictures. I was trying to get a close up of this picture. Is that our house in the center? If so, could you message me a copy of it? Thanks!
