Happy #WCW to my mom! I was so lucky to have her come visit me this past week. We ate lots of good food, went to the planetarium, hiked in Rocky Mountain National Park, saw live music, went to Fort Collins, threw a little #runfam St Patty’s Day party, went rock climbing, and had some good heart-to-hearts. It’s hard to choose a highlight but here are some pictures from our gorgeous snowy hike. I gave my mom my microspikes and poles because all the trails were hard packed and she did great! Multiple people have commented on how cool it is that she was willing to try so many new things and I couldn’t agree more! She may still think parts of my “Colorado/Boulder lifestyle” are a little crazy but she supports me and that’s really special 💛✨
After lugging the Blue Ice Warthog 40L backpack around the mountains for several months, IFMGA/AMGA guide Mike Lewis came to some conclusions: the pack is ideal for ice, rock and alpine climbing (5 stars for that category), but the lack of a padded hip belt makes it less comfortable to carry long distances when you’re not wearing a harness and you want to load more of the pack weight onto the hips instead of the shoulders. “For someone who is specifically looking for a pack with an unpadded, removable hip belt for technical climbing, this pack is a slam-dunk,” Lewis writes. He is pictured here wearing the Warthog in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. Read the review at Alpinist.com; see link in profile.

"Yesterdays mission was in the Dead Elk which had good cold powder but lots of signs of previous loose wet. Careful on the South faces right after storms when they warm up, we left to go North as soon as the sun poked put. Great skiing out there."
