Lord of the Rings Traverse, Eastern Sierra. "An early start to winter meant postponing this beauty of a link-up this weekend... but when the conditions don't align, you have to trust the mountains will always be there; it's your job to make sure you will be too. See ya next season, High Sierra." Words and photo by @matthew_tufts.

"Bouldering is hard on the fingers and bod. And at the end of the day I often feel like I haven’t done a ton of actual climbing but there’s something so addictive about it, about focusing so closely on and learning the nuances of a sequence of extremely difficult and uncomfortable moves so that you can put many of them together in succession." - @ethan_pringle at Howl's Moving Castle (V12/V13), Black Mountain, CA.

Chasing the perfect Alaskan moment with @freddiewilkinson (3/3) | "The view from above the clouds as the sun begins to set on the Chitina River Valley, Wrangell - St. Elias National Park. The best mountain conditions come through patience. We woke at 5 a.m. that morning and were airborne an hour later, hoping to catch the morning light among these giant peaks. But a half-hour beyond the last-stop village of McCarthy, it was obvious the weather wasn’t cooperating. Torn between returning to McCarthy to refuel and pressing on, we set down at @ultimathule ’s backcountry lodge to turn off our machine and consider our options. The lodge's amiable proprietors offered us breakfast. We waited. A bank of clouds pulsed down the valley. Soon, lunch was being served. We waited some more. By 4 p.m., bright holes of blue sky speckled the hills around us, and we were airborne again. Near the toe of the glacier the clouds began to recede, like a giant blanket pulled back to reveal a spectacular mountain wilderness."

From @andy_mann while on expedition with @mikelibecki and @ethan_pringle: "One of our world's great artists, Aurora Borealis, paints on the night sky over Southeast Greenland. // I spent this night bivied on the roof of our small boat as the 7 of our crew along with 38 overpacked expedition bags fought for space on the cramped 20 foot Viknes which was giving us a lift back to the airfield at Kulusuk. I definitely made the correct decision, despite almost being rocked off into the Arctic icy waters a few times in my sleep."
"Mt. Humphreys. Took on a classic Sierra peak with @ostrow12 today. We attempted the East Arete but came up a little short. Nonetheless it's not all about the summit. Pictured is Dan making his way down from 13,000ft. We took off yesterday evening and drove 6 hours to the trailhead to wake up early this morning to climb and drive back. For the love of adventure."
