Ho Ho Hold me tight

I've finally had some time to sit down and put up new pics. In preparation for going back to work i've been very motivated to get lots of climbs in. It's been an awsome month, thank you to all my climbing partners that made it possible for me to fullfill my dream of being a climbing bum. Merry Christmas ya'll!
