emilyaharrington Yesterday I barely managed to send the Monster Offwidth after an epic 2.5 hour ordeal. Most of the time was spent desperately trying to stay in, inching my way slowly upward, trying not to panic, and wondering if it would ever end. I can honestly say it's the hardest I've ever had to try on a single pitch, but I did it. Halfway there and lots of hard climbing ahead but trying to find comfort in the fact that the climbing from now on is more "normal". Thanks @adrianballinger for the epic patient belay and photo. Thanks @jonglassberg and @smashits for the encouragement. Trying to muster the courage and strength to keep climbing this am, coffee is helping immensely though 🏼 @petzl_official @thenorthface @louderthan11 #lt11 #PassionSpectrum 5d

emilyaharrington Day 1 we managed to haul our portaledge and haul bag "Dumbo" to the top of Hollow Flake. It felt like a real accomplishment. Space hauling is as difficult and frightening as it's made out to be. Go figure 🏼. Thanks @adrianballinger and @jonglassberg for the excellent teamwork and entertainment. Slowly but surely we might make it to the top of this mountain. @thenorthface @petzl_official @lasportivana @louderthan11 #PassionSpectrum #lt11 #assshots4dayz 1w

emilyaharrington The final episode of @epictv #epicclimber is out and it's my favorite: @tommycaldwell schools us all on a wet, frozen 12c crack 'Enfer du Decor' on the Aiguille Du Midi. @alexandermegos said he thought it was 9a!!! Hehe. Thanks everyone for the great time in Chamonix last summer, it was fun watching the story unfold these past few weeks.

emilyaharrington #tbt to @hilareeoneill and I entrenched deep in the Burmese jungle. We were very hungry, dirty, and emotionally wasted. It was the most difficult and exhausting journey I'd ever experienced. And also the most badass, life-changing, and incredible adventure of my life. The film 'DOWN TO NOTHING' directed by @renan_ozturk and @taylorfreesolo, tells the story of our journey; from the raw beauty and isolation of a place virtually cut off from the modern world, to the struggle, conflict, and unrelenting endurance of the human spirit. The film is showing this weekend @mountainfilm in Telluride - check out Taylor's blog on the Mountain Film website for more info. Wish I could be there but sending lots of love to the team!

emilyaharrington It was a nice dry weekend clipping bolts with the all-time Tahoe/Euro squad. Thanks @david_goettler for this photo of me splitting my fingers open on "Excelsior"! California is still experiencing that thirst-quenching weather and my skin's in desperate need of regrowth. So, I'm working on practicing that long lost art known as patience. @thenorthface @lasportivana @petzl_official 2w

emilyaharrington Of all the glorious spots in the America West, the Eastern Sierra might be top contender for my most favorite. Escaping the rain in Yosemite for warm cliffs, wild skies, and hot springs. #PassionSpectrum @hiballenergy 2w

emilyaharrington Once you visit Nepal, you never forget. It is a place that has a lasting impact. For me, it is where I discovered a real passion for the mountains and a desire to understand and explore them further. It forced me to confront my weaknesses and flaws in the truest of ways, and it made me stronger. For all of us who know Nepal - the beauty of its landscapes and the grace of its people - we know that those most valuable traits still remain as enduring as ever before. And we will go back. Share your own stories #NEPALiLOVEYOU, and continue to support a place that has given so much inspiration to the world. Check @camp4collective's tribute and spread the love. 3w

emilyaharrington Wintery day up there today on a romantic climbing date with @adrianballinger. So happy and excited to have him home experiencing Yosemite with me for his first time. Yesterday, while I was on my own personal vision quest on El Cap, he randomly onsight free soloed Nutcracker, After Six, and After Seven with @alexhonnold. I was impressed and slightly terrified to hear this, but seems like a pretty legit introduction to the Valley. Strong work for an @amga1979 mountain guide!! Hehe #IFMstr8Gstatus #hopelessandropeless #redpantsforthewin #PassionSpectrum @lasportivana @petzl_official 3w

emilyaharrington First day ever mini-traxioning - may as well jump in the deep end......3000 ft of exposure and all by myself so no one else could bear witness to how f**king gripped I was. #elrapitan #topropehero #PassionSpectrum @thenorthface @petzl_official @lasportivana 3w

emilyaharrington After nearly a week of resting, waiting out the rain, and finally getting to see @adrianballinger It's time to head back to Yosemite! Hopefully @cedarwright and I will get another few days of climbing in before the rain comes again. No complaints. #drought #thirstycalifornia #PassionSpectrum @thenorthface @lasportivana thanks Cedar for the photo 3w

emilyaharrington Join athletes, photographers, mountain guides and writers from across the globe in rallying much needed support for the remote mountain villages of Nepal. If you've ever been moved by stories of harrowing Himalayan climbing, touched by photos of grandiose mountains or the smile of a beautiful Nepali child, if you have a love of wild places, NOW is the time to give. Nepal is the backbone of our collective inspiration-let's raise it back up. The organizations involved with this fundraiser WILL make a difference. Check out my profile and follow the link to donate. Special thanks @hilareeoneill for helping organize such a worthy cause. 4w

emilyaharrington The results of battling with the Monster. I didn't think my technique was too bad - maybe I just need to toughen up? #PassionSpectrum @petzl_official @lasportivana Thanks for the capture @james_lucas 4w

emilyaharrington @cedarwright redeeming himself from yesterday's shoe mishap by absolutely bossing the Monster Offwidth. Glad I didn't have to lead it as I barely managed to send it on toprope, and it was still mildly traumatizing. Today was my first real big day up on the Capitan and it didn't disappoint. We had ourselves a real good time: lost a lot of skin (on not just our finger tips), found out what a 12c slab downclimb feels like (verging on impossible), and earned ourselves a few rest solid days (I'm destroyed). Thanks Ceedy for showing me how to be a big waller! #PassionSpectrum #PoorMansDawnWall @thenorthface 4w

emilyaharrington Nice to be back in the valley with friends. Pretty intimidating to look up at this big piece of stone from the meadow below and try and imagine actually climbing it . I suppose the only thing to do is get up there and try! @thenorthface @petzl_official @lasportivana @hiballenergy #PassionSpectrum 1mon
