There are a few things new out there this week that I'm proud of. I'm psyched to be working with Five-Ten on the cover of an event pamphlet that will be going to Japan where superstar Kevin Jorgeson is traveling for a climbing competition. Kill'em Kev! Also, the April issue of France's Escalade Magazine is out. I'm stoked to have a full page published in the “Telescopage." It is always cool to have featured work getting viewed across the pond.

Other than that, I've just been working my tale off and trying to get in some rock climbing. i just got back from a nice Spring day in the South Saint Vrain Canyon with my friend Ben Scott. I fired "Temptation Arete" first go, and got jazzed on a really hard route to the left of it. These are the two better sport routes in the canyon, and a good sign that my finger injury is near 100% recovered. Epic river crossings abound right now, YEEHAW!
We also took a tip some new boulders and unearthed some real gems nearby. Gotta love all the potential still out there. The best is yet to come...

AKA: Where do we go from here? Well, Rocky Mountain Highball is headed into DVD production and distribution, so be sure to check back here for the DVD release dates. Also, stay tuned for further screening dates, and film festival appearances around the country.
Climbing Magazine has recently posted a "re-cap" of the world premiere last week in Boulder, CO, as well as some photos from the evening. If you couldn't make it to the show, then click here. What a night!
You know, the shift from photography to film production was an amazing ride, but I am as fired up as ever to get back to my first love; photography. This year is my most promising yet, and I am buried up to my neck in excitement! This morning I officially teamed up with Skrammedia to exclusively bring all of my editorial climbing photography to Climbing and Urban Climber Magazines for 2009-10. My goal is to bring these magazines the absolute best climbing imagery that one man can produce. The focus is clear.
See ya'll out there!

This month's issue of Urban Climber Magazine is out and it is a good one! I am fortunate to have had one of my shots chosen for the cover (back to back) and to travel down to Hueco Tanks to shoot a feature for the issue as well. I was also able to contribute a gallery shot of KJorg on the FA of "The Heist", a "Cardwell reads UC" add, and an "Unearthed" column on Virginia bouldering stud, Austin Manning. So amped! Pick you on up a copy... bottom photo: Nalle Hukkataival takes a clean shot at "Slashface" V13.
