Climber, outside, Fear Knot
Learning to accept uncertainty.  “When nothing is sure, everything is possible.”—Margaret Drabble The stone was cool and slightly clammy with morning dew as the canyon warmed beneath a molten midsummer sunrise. Gear—cams and draws and carabiners—clinked happily on my harness while my partner silently flaked out rope on a flat rock. I sipped coffee...
Rock climbing, beer, drinking, summer
Pairing Bozeman’s breweries with recreation. We all love a tall frosty beverage with our outdoor recreation. Whether it’s a refreshing lager after paddling around Bozeman Pond, a citrusy Hefeweizen after mountain biking the local trails, or a good old-fashioned ale to power you through a dog walk, there’s nothing quite like sports and beer....

Hiking with the Montana Wilderness Association. In southwest Montana, we're surrounded by beautiful landscapes like Hyalite Canyon, the Pine Creek drainage, and the Bridger Range. Sometimes, it can be easy to take our access to this public land for granted, but no matter how we recreate, it's important that we conserve this resource that has...
The hype behind climbing lingo. Like all outdoor sports, climbing has its own jargon, and the terminology can be overwhelming. If you’ve ever been around a climber or hung out at Spire, you know what I’m talking about. In a given exchange, enough superfluous vocabulary is thrown around that a non-climber might comprehend half, at most. If you’re...
Ridge Run training with Swiss Fit Montana. This year, I wanted to incorporate some new training strategies to meet my goals of improving my time and getting stronger, so as not to break down physically after my third consecutive Ridge Run.
