Look at that color! - Local athlete @pegoodman climbing the rad South Nuttal line “Temporary Insanity” 5.13 . . . #westvirginia#newrivergorge @waterstoneoutdoors @newriverclimbing @newrivernps @aac_nrg_campground @nrac.official @accessfund @americanalpine 📸: @pegoodman
Took down one of my proudest climbs yet. So psyched to put up the FA (from what I know) of Under the Radar V10. . . . This is the right exit of the existing ultra classic F5 V9/10 at Fern Creek #newrivergorge . The line starts the same as F5 for the first two moves then makes a big move out right to a good hold. Then use crimps and edges straight up to a tall and scary top out.
Always an honor when my work is published. I recently licensed this image for the cover, along with another image for the back cover of the new book "The New River Gorge Bridge, A Modern Engineering Marvel". This is a great book, full of info and photos detailing the construction, maintenance and current use of The Bridge. You can find the book in various shops in and around the Gorge and soon on Amazon. My thanks to the authors for a wonderful book and their support of my work! #westvirginia#newriver
We are loving our new laser-cut topographic map of the #newrivergorge!⠀ ⠀ As you might imagine, we are totally geeking out about it! Looking at the elevation change in the gorge is fascinating. ⠀ ⠀ It was made by Timothy Lampe of Synergy Aerial out of Beckley, WV. He personally draws and designs these maps in his home with his CAD program and then laser-cuts them in his workshop. ⠀ ⠀ We purchased ours at @Wildartwonderfulthings, Fayetteville's new gift shop right down the street from Lafayette Flats. ⠀ ⠀ #maplovers ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Attention Fayetteville, DO NOT SERVE this baby. I repeat DO NOT SERVE this baby. If she shows up in your establishment contact the sheriffs department immediately. And no matter what DO NOT let her around water after midnight... #gremlins#ourvalentine
Here's another shot of Trebuchet mid crux holding the core crushing foot cut. It's getting cold here in the gorge. I'm ready for the thousands of boulders this place has to offer! 📷: @francoislebeau 💪 💪 💪 @climbbutora #teambutora#narsha @chakstoneskin
So last night I came back home from my first camping trip and I can say with my whole heart that going to that trip was one of the best decisions I made. I got some amazing memories with people who I now hold so very close to my heart❤️ From singing in the car to West Virginia, meeting the amazing people from the outdoors club, going caving, jumping into a river right after, falling down after seeing the most amazing clear night sky, sleeping in a one person tent w@woodpjames @forellic6 and @alexandria.hwang to keep warm. All of these ...
