Today is Global Climbing Day...in the gym, on the wall or in the alpine. Hope you’re getting after it today... • @thenorthface is partnering w 300 gyms in 200 cities in 50 countries around the world today. Check for a participating gym near you! Link in bio. @ashimashiraishi @alexhonnold @renan_ozturk • Since 1966, @thenorthface and its athletes have viewed walls not as obstacles, but as opportunities. • From the big walls of Yosemite to the high peaks of the Himalayas, we were searching for a personal kind of freedom. • In this pursuit, we found a community strengthened by different stories, experiences and perspectives. • This community has shown us that the only way forward is together. • We believe in a world that is united by difference, by empathy and strengthened by understanding. • Walls Are Meant For Climbing.

Thank you to the @tetonscience for the beautiful evening at the Murie Ranch for the Spirit of Conservation Awards. I was honored and humbled for your recognition. I’ve called Jackson and the Tetons home for 20 years. Beyond the mountains, I’ve been inspired throughout my career by the legacy of this place and my community in Jackson - from the Murie’s that started the Wilderness Society and spearheaded what would become the Wilderness Act and the modern conservation movement, to all the hard charging alpinists, climbers, skiers and snowboarders. It’s a remarkable community to be a part of. Thank you for all your support over the years. Feels like we’ve been through a lot together. I know people protect what they love and with that love comes a sense of responsibility to the earth. These are the seeds of conservation. I can only hope my work inspires people to get outside, to fall in love with the landscapes we play in and to continue to fight to preserve these wild places. The highlight of the evening was seeing @goulding_jr get his 2019 Rising Leader Award for his work and leadership to connect urban and diverse communities around the country to the outdoors. He is sharing the knowledge and skills to future outdoor leaders in order to pass it all forward. It is people like CJ that will move the needle for future generations of outdoor and conservation leadership.

It’s @alexhonnold’s birthday. He once told me he preferred that everything he owns could fit in his van. That is to say he doesn’t need anymore stuff. So if you want to give him a gift, donate the money towards his foundation @honnoldfoundation. They do good work in providing solar energy in places of need. Link in stories. Happy birthday Alex!

Alpine dreamscape...Canadian style. Rock climbing? Alpine climbing? Mixed climbing? It’s all climbing. @thenorthface Global Climbing Day coming up 8/24. Stay tuned...

End of a fine day in Nica w @jeffjohnson_beyondandback...

From climbing and ski trips to filming Free Solo, this van has been with me through it all. Stoked to announce my new collaboration with @Turo where it’s available to book for the next month. The van is waiting for someone in Jackson Hole, and I can't wait to see the adventures others take it on. Check it out in my bio link.

A couple days late but what the hey... Happy belated National Mountain Climbing Day! The act of climbing mountains is often misunderstood. It can mean a lot of different things to different people. The reasons for climbing mountains can be deeply personal or about sharing an incredible experience with your climbing partners. For some it becomes a meditation in being present. Life stripped to the basics - movement through the landscape with purpose. At its most raw, it can be about survival. @conrad_anker has made a career seeking out, exploring and climbing some of the most remote unclimbed walls in the world. Beyond his climbing, he has been a mentor to new generations of climbers and also worked to protect the wild landscapes he loves. But at the end of the day, he still loves climbing. Here in -20f degree temps, he ascends a new 4000ft route on Ulvetanna aka the Wolf’s Fang in Antarctica. Ask him why he’d spend a week on a wall in subzero temps and he might not be able to tell you...but he was surely present and enjoying this moment. @thenorthface

@jeffjohnson_beyondandback on an outer reef bomb. I met Jeff aka “Sandalwood”, @thetorpedopeople and @the.rabbits.foot over ten years ago when we spent a month together in Chile filming 180 South. It was a life changing trip. We all stayed in touch and talked about doing a surf trip together some day. Ten years later it finally came together. This was my first surf trip w them. This is the first place they take me. Casual. @yeti

Haven’t been home since April. Missing my Teton vibes...A lot of friends and family rolling through town staying at my house. Glad to have a space for everyone to post up as I’m still in karmic debt for all the people that have put me up over the years...
