Hey y’all! it’s me again @peeches88 with day 3 of 5 of the @frictionlabs takeover.
for the last several years i’ve concentrated more on setting. i’ve been fortunate to set over 25 national level events across the country. it’s given me a chance to travel and meet so many talented setters.
photo #1 - setting for the women up festival held last year at @dogpatchboulders - amazing event! if you’re in the area they are holding it again this year!
photo #2 - i traveled down to @memphisroxclimbing to help with their initial set. great gym that gives back to the community!
photo #3 - @usaclimbing regionals at @evorock_concord where @syd.vicious86 and i set hard routes for the kids.
photo #4 - the setting crew for tuck fest at the @whitewatercenter - realized i wasn’t so scared of deep water soloing after all
photo #5 - helping set the @darkhorseboulderingseries finals this past january.

Hey y’all!! this is day 1 of 5 of my @peeches88 insta takeover of the @frictionlabs account!
i started climbing back in 1998 and have been able to do so many things because of climbing. want to share those experiences with y’all!! photo: climbing at the red on “super slab” out at military wall. 📷 @twincannons
the red river gorge was like a second home to me from the age of 13 till 18. i traveled to the red every weekend and would spend my summers there. love that place! if you have never been, you must check it out!! #chalkupless #climbmore #frictionlabs #rrg #climbing #routes #classics #thesouth #tryhard #girlswhoclimb @organicclimbing @rhinoskinsolutions @fiveten_official

Hi! @rannveigaamodt here, still taking over the @frictionlabs instagram. i want to share with you my favorite adventure from last year. i went to yang shuo, china, with a landscape that looks like it came right out of a super mario bros video game. the climbing was otherworldly and we had so much fun cruising through the countryside on our mopeds. we found this undone like one day on a formation called the egg... it’s one of the coolest lines i’ve ever seen, but between my super long approach pitch and the short permadraws, the rope drag made it almost unclimbable. so, as far as i know it’s still awaiting a fa. will it be you? be prepared for incredible climbing and awesome exposure! photo via @nathanwelton #chalkupless #climbmore #frictionlabs frictionlabs.com

@rannveigaamodt here on the instagram takeover. figured i’d start with this amazing shot from my brother @terjeaamodt since it’s from norway, my home country. this is one of the most classic climbing adventures in northern europe: solvær geita. getting up to the top is the easy part, but jumping across the void is terrifying. the leader needs to take out a handful of rope so they don’t get short roped, but if you miss he landing you’ll take a very uncomfortable fall and smack back into the rock you leapt from. i was sweating bullets... needed to be covered in call from head to toe ;). this was taken at midnight! the land of the midnight sun... #chalkupless #climbmore #frictionlabs frictionlabs.com
