We've been out a decent amount this year, touring, hiking, exploring and the like. It's not that far into the season and I've already done more touring than I think I've ever done in the past, with plenty more ahead. It's super rad to hike around in any mountains, but fortunately I'm in the Wasatch and this place has so much to offer. It's been amazing to do the little exploring that we have and be able to find terrain I never knew was there.
I was unable to join Parker and crew on a couple of their bigger missions this year, but planning on making it happen with some future summits. So for now, here's the first episode introducing this years project. Hope you enjoy.
And here's a little bonus panoramic photo from our last tour in the Southern Wasatch.

Blake Nyman enjoys the last day of 2010 at his childhood resort, Sundance, with his brothers in tow. Super good way to end the year!

This was my first day out for the 2010/2011 season. Good times with the Surface fam in the sidecountry of Alta.
Blake Nyman makes his first runs of the 2010/2011 season.
Not much to do with snow shredding, but made a P&S out of it anyway.
My buddy Bryan and I were bored one Sunday and took a walk up nearby Dry Fork canyon in Utah to do some rappeling. We weren't too sure how big the rappel was and both of us were pretty rusty. Sketchy knots, forgotten gloves, minimal/borrowed equipment. We soon measured it to be about 230' and went for it anyway. Good practice for some upcoming ski mountaineering...
Another non-snow P&S, but got some surf time in, so maybe it relates...
Blake Nyman gets some last minute East Coast surf time and a small taste of New York's Village Halloween parade before the ski season gets started.
November was a good month in Utah. Here's a few days proof.
Blake Nyman gets some early season November shredding in on Alta's Wildcat lift. Pep Fujas, Wiley Miller & Hayden Price join in for some hot laps too!
