The first Sun Valley Mid-Winter Photo Challenge went down a couple days ago and was a super fun event. 5 photographer/athlete teams had 12 hours to shoot and produce a 3 minute slideshow using only that day's images. Thanks Jon Mancuso for crushing it all day. Be sure to check out Jon's sweet site http://www.jonmancuso.com/

A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of being invited to the Smugglers Notch Ice Bash. I got the full tour of Vermont, did the annual dry tool comp at the Petra Cliff Climbing Gym, taught a steep ice clinic to an awesome group of people, and presented a slide show on my recent link up in Hyalite Canyon “the Big Dance.” The slide show included a few pics of some recent international trips.
Included in the tour I had the chance to get out for a few days of Vermont Climbing with some good friends. We climbed at Snake Mountain and Lake Willoughby. The day at the lake was an outstanding finish to the Tour de Vermont, with a world-class ice climb called the Last Gentleman.

“Never question your significant other about the amount of money they're spending on fine European footwear.”

While climbing in Spain’s Costa Blanca in 2012 we were encouraged to visit Chulilla, an area to the north that came highly recommended. We were told that if we liked Wild Side at Sella – and we did – we’d really enjoy Chulilla since the climbing was similar: long, gently-overhanging routes with plenty of limestone tufas. A year later we were back in Spain, Valencia to be exact. Upon arriving in Chulilla we were suitably impressed. The climbing zone featured a pair of deep gorges with tall, tufa-streaked walls. Sound good? Read on for more beta…
