Our daughter's first trip to Yosemite when she was one year old. I hope she will have similar experiences as I've had in this valley. Recently, her first words were, "Trump is a moron. I hope he doesn't sell Yosemite to the Russians". #yosemite#halfdome#glacierpoint
Scott "Savage" Parry on Steppin' Out, Yosemite, 2008. They call him Savage for his unique penchant for climbing off-widths. When we first met at Camp 4 I told him I needed to develop my off-width skills for the Steck-Salathe route. That's all he needed to hear. Next thing I knew we were on a grizzly, wide crack tour of Yosemite Valley. It wasn't just one day, but many sore and bloody and exhausting days throughout the climbing season. Once I got on the Steck it felt somewhat easy, a route I have happily repeated. Thank you Scott. I really appreciate climbing with you. #yosemite#offwidths#savage
To Dad, my biggest hero. An undefeated springboard diver in high school, a ski patrol at Alpine Meadows after college. I asked him what he did on his days off. He said, "I skied Squaw Valley". A builder of homes, a player of games, a competitive skier in his late 60's where they made him compete in the 40-year-old bracket because he was winning every race. He got me skiing when I was four, took me down the 75 Shoot at Squaw Valley when I was five. He told me that it's ok to cry, he also told me it's ok to fight. He supported me skateboarding though he didn't understand the culture (fair enough), bought me my first wetsuit, helped me move to Hawaii when I was 18, suggested I get a job that allowed me to travel and see the world, so I did, and I am. At age 77 he's still going strong, fit as hell. Happy Father's Day, Dad. Where would I be without you? #fathersday
Stoked to be hosting a Q&A with @jimmy_chin tonight at the Go Pro Mountain Games after a screening of Meru. Looks like he's still buzzing from last week's whirlwind on El Capitan. Should be a good night? @tudorwatch#meru

My wife just launched her new vintage inspired clothing line @karathomsboutique. She designed the entire collection using hand died linens, ethically produced in Bali. So proud of her. Check it out!

Congratulations @alexhonnold! Yesterday he became the first person to climb El Capitan's 3000-foot face without the use of a rope or any safety related gear- just his climbing shoes and a chalk bag. I knew he would eventually do this but I'm still in disbelief. Being out on that face without a rope is simply unfathomable and I'm relieved it's all over. I doubt I will see this repeated in my lifetime. Photo: @alexhonnold mid way through the Triple Link Up in Yosemite with @tommycaldwell, 2012. And I thought this was the most incredible feat in climbing. Well, it was at the time. #elcapitan#yosemite#freesolo#alexhonnold

Yesterday we lost fellow climber Matt Ciancio to a skydiving accident. I didn't know him well, only in passing and this day when we rapped into El Capitan so he and @james_lucas could work on climbing Freerider. He eventually freed the route with Jason Lakey and, according to James, he waited on top till dusk and base-jumped off the Salathe Wall, landing safely in the El Cap meadow. Matt lived a full life. Rest In Peace brother.

Thank you Mom for all the hard work and sacrifice in raising my sister and me. And to all the mothers out there - thank you! We would be nowhere without you. "The world moves on a woman's hips." -Talking Heads. #mothersday
@renan_ozturk on the Monkey. Smith Rock, OR, 2005, during our #bendtobaja road trip. I first met Renan in Joshua Tree back in 2004. He was a busboy at the Crossroads Cafe, had no car, and I think he was living outside- in a cave or something. I'd often see him around the park quietly going about his solo circuit. It has been awesome to follow his career path, becoming such a renown climber, film maker and photographer. I'm sure most of you follow him. If not, you should. And check out his new film, Denali's Raven for @yeti. Click the link in my profile. #denalisraven#smithrock#climbing#climb
Always fun working with @bobbytooyoung and the crew. Corona Del Mar, CA.

If you haven't seen Fishpeople yet, you should. Director Keith Malloy (@thetorpedopeople) has made another great film. Beautifully crafted and inspiring at a whole new level. Super proud of my good friend @eddiedonnellan who's part in the film strikes a deep cord within. To see the tour schedule click the link in my profile. #fishpeople
Everyday is Earth Day, especially when you consider these two men: Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins. Their approach to business and conservation (often blending the two) is wholly unique and unprecedented. The impact they've had is immeasurable. To learn more go to @conservacionpatagonica and @tompkins_conservation Photo: Yvon and Doug during the first ascent of Cerro Kristine, Patagonia, Chile, 2008. During the filming of 180 South. #earthday#dougtompkins#yvonchouinard#180south
