10. ANCIENT ART 5.11a, Fisher Towers, Utah. Is it sandstone, or is it mud? Is the whole route actually an April Fools joke? Definitely the craziest and most unlikely rock formation I've ever climbed on
9. THE CASUAL ROUTE 5.10b, The Diamond (4,346m), Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. "It turns out climbing 5.10 is really hard when it's covered in snow and you can't breathe..."
8. Bron's house in Perth, Ontario to Yosemite, California. 5 days of driving, this one was so good we did it four times!!! There and back twice.
|The glitz and glamour of life as a professional dirtbag. Making coffee in the Macdonalds carpark (free wifi) because you're too cheap to pay 1 dollar for a coffee inside...|
|Death Valley. Not a good day to stock up on reduced Easter eggs...|
|Iowa has a lot going for it as a state...|
6. A PhD in Mathematics. Approximate grade of 8c. Still can't believe I actually finished this.
|Ah right then, glad we got that cleared up.|

|Taken by me in the exact same spot as the picture above.|
|Topping out after midnight on Halloween, no need for costumes!|
2. DISKO 2000 8a+, Blåmman, Norway. This trip required a lot of faith in pre-placed beaks and a lot of faith that one day it might stop raining.
|Pitch 2, 8a+ corner!|
|Dave showing off ;)|
|Summit, more rain, YESSSS!!!!|
|Bron having a lovely time in the Monster offwidth. I did not have a lovely time.|

Half Dome, REGULAR NORTHWEST FACE. First off we forgot a sleeping bag, then we got stuck behind some aid climbers, 19 hours of grimness ensued... Then the route fell down a month later!
|I guess it wasn't so bad really...|
|Pure psyche on display after topping out at 11pm!|
