It was an incredible honor climbing in lead finals at my first World Championships here in Innsbruck, Austria. The routes were very fun to climb on and the crowd was amazing!I I have a lot to work on in order to improve but I’m happy with my climbing these last few days and 5th place on the ropes. Huge congrats to @jessy_pilz and @jakob.schubert who both killed it on the wall. Next up is bouldering :)) @nv_tsarev photo
Funny story, I didn’t know how to use the escargot tongs so one of the escargot shells slipped and went flying to the street. Good thing the waiter was a good sport and laughed with me😂 Someone needs to teach this family some French culinary etiquette. Last pic is my dad showing mom the scoop beta👌 France treated us well, thank you. Arco! Next!
Some people build walls, other people climb them. Since 1966, we’ve seen walls not as obstacles but as opportunities. They are a chance to explore what we believe to be possible. They are a vertical proving ground for grit, perseverance, and determination. They taught us to trust, to work together, to create safety in partnership. They are mirrors that reflect the best versions of ourselves. Walls do not divide us, walls bring us together. Walls are meant for climbing. — 8/18 ~ Global Climbing Day~ For every Global Climbing Day participant, The North Face will donate $1 to the Khumbu Climbing Center in Nepal, an organization dedicated to teaching responsible climbing practices through community-based programs.
