Thank You!

I guess that's it for the blog posts, at least for now.

Most of the local climbing we're doing now isn't really that epic, and once winter hits we will be stuck in the gym. It does feel a little strange to go climbing without having the blog in the back of my mind though. I have this weird feeling that I need to be sharing what we are doing with the world. At the same time it's nice to leave the camera at home, and just enjoy the climbing.

Hopefully we'll hit the road again next summer. Despite the number of climbing destinations we visited, there are still some amazing ones that we missed. The Grand Tetons in Wyoming and The Bugaboos in British Columbia are high on the list. We might start blogging again then.

There are a lot of people we'd like to thank for making the trip so amazing:

All the new friends we met on the way, even if it was just for an afternoon of climbing or the sharing of a campfire. It was awesome to hear all your stories and share your experiences.

All our old friends and family who joined us for various parts of the trip. It was always a joy to climb and hang out with familiar faces from back home, and we were so excited to be a part of your own adventures.

All the people who opened their doors and let us stay on the inside. You have no idea how awesome it was to sleep in your bed, use your shower, enjoy your climate controlled air, and steal your internet.

And all the people who read any of these blog posts. I'm sure most people just looked at the pretty pictures, but I hope we entertained some of you for a while.

Thanks for coming along for the ride.

  4. Greetings Yason Touthomme and The Pinnacle Gnome!

    Just completed a tour through your awesome pics and videos!!! The vids are very well done, including the tunes selected. Looks like an absolute blast spending that much time outside doing something as challenging as climbing.

    Thank you for making this accessible via the web.
