Escalade grande voie
L'escalade, une passion de plus de 20 ans
Hi, I am #PetzlTeam member @jamiefinlayson and I am taking over the Petzl Instagram feed for a few days. I have been climbing for over 20 years and I call Squamish, Canada, home. Before my climbing career, I was an alpine ski racer and a member of the Canadian Alpine Ski Team. One of my ski coaches introduced me to climbing way back in 1995 and it was instant love. Many years have passed but my passion and desire to climb still burns. I hope you enjoy my takeover. Here I am getting some air under my feet on Teenage Lobotomy, V6. Photo #finlaysonimages
Thomas, mon fils et mon coach
@jamiefinlayson Instagram Feature Day Two. "My life is extremely busy and finding spare time is sometimes hard. My wife and I both own and operate respective businesses, we have a one and a half year old son, and I climb a lot! Fitting in training can be a challenge and taking advantage of ever opportunity is the key to success. Having a good training partner is also helpful. Here Thomas, my son, keeps me on task."

Dans une fissure de "Gravity Bong", Squamish
@jamiefinlayson Takeover Day 3. Squamish is an amazing place to call home. We have world class bouldering, sport climbing, and of course the stellar multi pitch climbing on the Stawamus Chief! Here I am on a route called Gravity Bong, high up on the Prow Wall. This pitch starts with mid 5.12 thin fingers and then opens up into one of the best 5.9 hand cracks in Squamish. In recent years I have been very focused on sport climbing and bouldering but in my early climbing years I spent a lot of time plugging cams in the upper reaches of the chief.

Crashpad et poussette
Takeover by #PetzlTeam member @jamiefinlayson Day 4. Becoming a father was the most amazing thing that has every happened to me. Until you have kids you don't really understand how special it is. This photo was from a recent family trip to Joshua Tree. On this day Thomas, my son, climbed his first boulder! Such a proud moment. Here he is showing me the way to the next project.

"Dreamcatcher", un jour peut-être !
@jamiefinlayson Instagram Takeover - Final Day "I have been trying to send one of Squamish’s most iconic climbs, Dreamcatcher, for the past four years. During my first year of working the route I managed to get fairly close but was never able to link the crux from the ground. A few years have passed, a major surgery (lumbar spinal fusion), and becoming a father have made it difficult to get a lot of time on the route. Not to mention the unfavourable rainy weather we have been having of late. But It is still one of my main goals for this year. This photo was from a 6 am early morning session a few weeks ago.
