Image of the Day: Bouldering Perfection at HP40

I am dedicating this entire weekend to climbing. Yesterday at the gym, I realized I have really dropped the ball in my strength/technique. My climbing was utterly pathetic for the first two hours, until I started projecting a new route and got on ropes with my buddy Marlin. To keep the progress flowing, today’s image is a beautiful shot by Cealey Godwin. This photo was taken during our recent trip to Horse Pens 40, and the featured climber is a super strong girl from our gym, Montana.

Everything about this image expresses the overall vibes of our trip to Horse Pens 40 – showers of falling foliage, stunning rock formations, loads of climbing and superb lighting that streamed through the autumn trees. The photo is an inspirational double-whammy. Not only does it get me pumped for another day of hardcore climbing, it also serves as motivation to continue saving up for a real camera, like the Canon EOS Rebel T2i Digital SLR. Mm, drool worthy.

If anyone wants to join me today at the gym, give my phone a buzz. I’ll be there all day until my fingers fall off. Also might try to develop my film today from the pot luck/Chattanooga/HP40 – if you’re lucky!
