High times

For a while late this summer, regular Eastside CrossFitter Ade Miller wasn’t showing up for his usual workouts. We thought maybe he’d dropped off the face of the earth.

Not quite.

As it turns out, he and climbing buddy Simeon Warner were actually clinging to vertical faces of earth and ice in the Waddington Range in British Columbia, bagging a few first ascents in the process.

This time, though, we are happy to report that he wasn’t regretting a foregoing encounter with Helen or any of the other CrossFit “girls.”

Lucky for us (we were missing our usual dose of cynical Britishisms), he’s back in the gym now, getting pummeled merely by workouts again instead of by zooming rocks.
