I flipped my life around this past year. I dropped out of school, got EMT certified, and recieved a grant to climb in Patagonia. I was lucky enough to experience a legendary season in El Chalten, and brought along my camera.

Here is the final video of a series of chapters captured during my trip to South America. Scott Bennett and I climbed a new ridge linkup that turned out to be one of the longest routes in Patagonia.

You can check out 4 other videos I produced during the trip along with a handful of pictures. I have done my best to update reports about the routes I climbed, but am still in the process of completing them. Please enjoy what I have posted on my blog:

I have been working full time painting houses since I have been back from Patagonia, and finished my last day of work. This weekend I am heading out to Yosemite valley where I will continue to live the dream. See you out there!

Living the dream..

Painting houses sucks but it can be a great quick means to an end.

Keep doing what your doing as long as you can as imop it does not get any better than this. Probably will be the best years of your life.

Way to go for it taking to the next level man you will be soooo glad you did someday. Even more glad than you are right now...

Thanks for sharing with us held up doing the survival dance... It helps put things back in perspective...
