Roam just released this little video highlighting some of the work we've been doing through the Honnold Foundation.
I'm looking forward to focusing more and more on the Foundation in the future. Hoping to do something useful for the world. . .

I think this is one of the best things ever written about sponsorship in climbing. Hazel Findlay really dives in deep [and knows enough people in the industry to get interesting answers].
This was originally written as a response to Ashima Shiraishi getting sponsored by Coca-Cola, which I still have somewhat mixed feelings about. I'd personally never support a soda company, yet I've done an ad for a whiskey company in the past [despite never drinking!].
I suppose in sponsorship, as in normal life, we just have to think about our values and do our best to help make the world the way we want it.

My grandfather was a Polish immigrant who went back to Europe to fight fascism 75 years ago. It's so disappointing that all these years later we're fighting the same battles in our own country. I'd like to think that we can do better.

Walls have always been my biggest source of inspiration - they fuel my imagination and sense of exploration. My friends and community are all centered around climbing walls. Pretty proud of @thenorthface for deciding to build public climbing walls around the country to help share that inspiration. #wallsaremeantforclimbing

My friend James wrote this great article for Climbing Magazine about my solo of Freerider. We've climbed together for over a decade now and he's also sent the route in a day. It's a unique perspective on the process of soloing El Cap.
Though the highlight of the article for me was this George S. Patton Jr. quote: “Fatigue makes cowards of us all.”
I'll definitely use it in the future.
