@jimwmorrison highlighting all the gear we had for the #cassinridge last year. One 50 7.4mm rope, 2 ice axes each, 5 cams, a handful of nuts and ice screws for an 8000 foot route. Sure made it exciting and pretty damn committing. @blackdiamond #noturningback #sufferfest

Boys ended 2017 with a brave leap into the frigid water in Lake Tahoe. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on your perspective on Winter and ❄️) it was crazy warm outside!! @protectourwinters #getoutside #prayforsnow

What a ride it was in 2017. Will be tough to forget this last year. Lots of amazing adventures with friends and family in my backyard and on the other side of the world. From tackling some fears on the big stage with @national_geographic_live and a really big mountain in India #peakofevil, to new experiences with my kids on #Palmyra to the auguille d’midi to desert camping and climbing, to good times with friends and standing on top of Denali-twice! Thanks to everyone for the support and the laughs, the tears, the fun, the patience and the love. Happy New Year.
Not much has changed at my home ski hill @stevenspass in Washington. Still riding two man chairs with the middle bar, still hiking for #nancybobbychutes and still tons of fun with lots of snow. Thanks for being our tour guide @ingridbackstrom and finding us some 🌶 skiing.

A day in the mountains is always good. A day in the mountains with people you love and respect, especially when they are your cousins, nephew, sister and boyfriend turns a good day into an unforgettable one. Thanks @jimwmorrison for the spectacular delivery. Thanks to @greysonnelson and Andi for taking time out of their busy day to shred some turns and always to @sassafras_photos for the inspiration. #happyholidays #crystalmountain #iloveskiing

Hard to believe there was warm desert climbing just this week- so close to Christmas. There is just something magical about the jingle jangling of a whole mess of climbing gear. I love it! #indiancreek #standwithbearsears #prayforsnow #getoutside @blackdiamond 📸 @jimwmorrison

Love this photo by @jxnfigs from #peakofevil expedition last spring. Reminds of how much we all hung it out there. Thanks to @thenorthface for the gear, of course, but even more so for the nearly two decades of support and the understanding that not all my hair-brained ideas are going to be successful but, when they are, it’s pretty damn awesome. @jimwmorrison @wayfarer_wolf @ibexexpeditions @scottmellin
One of the best things about skiing is the last minute spontaneous ski posse !🎿! This morning at @squawalpine was full of some of my favorite peeps. #letitsnow❄️⛄️ @protectourwinters @thenorthface_snow @adrianballinger @jimwmorrison @myshellparker @jackiepaaso 📷 @emilyaharrington @em_turn

Four days of hammering in the desert with @jimwmorrison - first riding 70+ miles through Joshua Tree then 3 days of over 4000 feet of vertical and hard (for me) rock climbing. So thankful that today is 🦃 day and a rest day and we get to be with good friends and eat lots good food and relish in my insanely sore fingers and toes. I’m thankful for such a good partner. I’m thankful for two beautiful and insane little boys that make me smile every day. I’m thankful for adventure and #wildplaces. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! #hilsonthemove #wallsaremeantforclimbing #bestholiday @thenorthface

Just me and my shadow... and an insane view that took my breath away! Thanks @mattsegal for the route recommendation and @alpinestartfoods for the kickstart! @jimwmorrison for finessing my wee little car deep into desert. @thenorthface @clifbar @blackdiamond
Sierra Nevada Mountains last winter. This was a warm up for Giant Steps the following day- a remote couloir that hadn’t been in condition for years. Needless to say, it was in pretty good shape last winter. Now I’m ready for some more ❄️. 📸 @christianpondella #repeatwinterplease #sierracement #getoutside @thenorthface_snow @julbousa @blackdiamond

I’ve been fortunate to spend the vast majority of my life adventuring in wild places. As a kid, it was with my family on a boat in the Puget Sound and the national marine parks of British Columbia. As an adult, I’ve travelled the world to the most extreme latitudes and elevations following my passion for mountains and snow, glaciers and remote summits. I want more than anything for my kids to have the same opportunities to have adventure in their own lives. Thanks to @protectourwinters for the last few days of informative and authentic conversations about how to be part of the solution to climate change. It’s amazing to see the outdoor industry wield its influence both through economics and education on the most important and pressing issue of my life and my kids’ future. #dataforgood

As a new fan of the app @mtnhub I am continuing my 3-day #instatakeover to encourage each of you to check them out through link in my profile. I’m really excited to start using @mtnhub on my next adventures at home, in the mountains, on expeditions etc. wish I’d been using it this last spring to record all my trips and contribute to observation used through their #dataforgood initiative. For more info, check it out!!

From Indian Creek to the Cliff Lodge. From crazy desert beauty climbing to Wasatch mountains and snow. Doing a takeover with @mtnhub the next few days while with some of my favorite people at @protectourwinters #athletesummit. #dataforgood @jimwmorrison
It’s still desert climbing season. Reflecting on last week in Sedona with @thenorthface fellow athletes @heidiwirtz @kitdski @m_synnott @victordelerue @robheule @david_goettler @mreverest7x @onceuponaclimb . We have a pretty special #tnftribe that I am forever grateful to be a part of and to be influenced by these amazing individuals.
I find a lot of joy in participating in adventures that have consequence. Im learning that the comraderie that grows with friends when you are forced, through consequence, to rely on that other person, is unique and extremely special. I’ve been with @thenorthface all week and climbing and playing with lots of friends. Climbed #themace with @ingridbackstrom and @jimmy_chin followed by a great talk from #sebastianjunger on his book #thetribe. #athletesummit #neverstopexploring

@onceuponaclimb racking up for what would prove to be a speed record of 9 international multi gender climbers on a 5 pitch climb. We actually made it off before dark. Nice lead Caro!! @victordelerue @robheule @kitdski @heidiwirtz #gettingrad #teamtnf #athletesummit #themace
Kicked off the @thenorthface #athletesummit with a pretty awesome drum session this morning. Lots of enthusiasm in this group with @ingridbackstrom @conrad_anker @rorybosio. Oh boy- it’s gonna be a fun week! #neverstopexploring
