I gave a brief keynote presentation and Q&A at the American Alpine Club’s Craggin’ Classic on Monday—if you’d like to watch it, it’s online here.

And hey:
These Friday Inspiration posts are able to continue thanks to the handful of wonderful people who support Semi-Rad on Patreon for as little as $1 a month.
