This was my first photo shoot with a pro photographer, Corey Rich. The pics are clean and he shoots Voyeur, so its not staged. Its pretty interesting to climb all day and not notice a photographer getting world class shots of you. I was 21 when this took place, bleached hair, prana shirt and my first pair of Cobras.
Thats my update for the day.
PS. Hello to everyone in Russia who keeps tabs on me and the whole Cordless crew. Feel free to drop us some msgs in Russian on our FB Page.

We make choices that refelct who we are, what we identify with, and where we wish to go.
And at those junctions, at those crossroads, we find we can choose between money and power, stress and debt, or fulfilment and truth.
What do you think people who work for Cordless choose?
What we live, on our own, at the tips of our fingers everyday, whether we cut school for a proj or miss the last bus for an extra run on the campus board, at the end of the day, its all about you. Yourself. Alone. Watch.

The sun is drowning behind a shadowy storm front. Lightning strikes in the distance but is heard only a solid minute later, were I stand. Above me, the sky is clear and the stars faintly starting to make their appearance as her majesty sets in the hollowing thunder.
The silence is eerie. The wine season and her harvest are well over with, and all that is left is bare vines and rows of never stopping hibernation. I feel a sense of kinship growing. I feel somewhat at home, somehow responsible for this. The plants have given all they had to me, to us, to everyone, and yet now, as much attention as t
So I settle into the couch, for it is my bed for the night until the sun warms this place up again in the light of morning. At which time, with everything packed and ready, I will head into the next and last portion of my travels. I will head west, the way of the cowboy and the lonely wanderer, into the unknown. What could become only one person knows, and he or she is not letting me in on any of that!
I know this is a blog about me and climbing. But I really can't resist these days. For some reason, I feel impurvious to the fact of being silent and saying nothing. Watch GASLAND here or go to FAST PASS TV and choose your link to watch it.

Jason is a good friend and one of the raddest humans I have ever met. He's honest, down to earth, and climbs cause he loves to do it. He works his ass off for all his sponsors and this is some of his creations on vid. Check it out.

Here is my response ( or more like support ) to one of this weeks Mirror articles, The Front, about just one more idiot in office. I sent it to the weekly rag, we'll see if they publish it. Enjoy.
Its really starting to get to me.

Sorry. I have been interrupted by millions of things over the past few months and have gotten lost off path.
Here is an insider for all your cravings. Gripped is publishing an article about Quebec climbing. I think this is a first for any mag, let me know if I am wrong. Also will have nice pics of PeeWee sending hard cracks, some nice bikini shots, and other pictures, some taken by Francois Lebeau for example. Can't post anything yet, but here is just a teaser.
Within a 100 km radius of Montreal, there are over 60 climbing areas covering every aspect of modern rock climbing. Expand that radius to 350 km and Montreal-based climbers have access to the Bas St-Laurent region, which leads north to desert beach bouldering in the Appalachians or white pocketed granite climbing in Kamouraska.
Like the nightlife in Montreal, the climbing in Quebec is always engaging. Sport routes often have spicy runouts, which help keep the energy and true spirit of climbing alive. The granite trad climbs also very entertaining. The rock is hard to read with very technical and pumpy climbing.
Here are 10 of the top Quebec areas that any road-tripping climbers should visit."
Make sure you keep a look out and come join us this summer in Quebec for some good times and a little bit of rock.
