The new season of "Alaskan Bush People" is about to premiere and reality star Bear Brown is already getting into the extreme spirit by setting out on his very first rock climbing adventure. Bear went out climbing with a few members of the "ABP" crew on the Whistler Canyon Trail in Eastern Washington. Bear was excited to talk about his first time mountaineering and it sounds like there will be more rock climbing in his future.
"I’ve always wanted to go mountain climbing! And I finally got my chance!" he wrote on Instagram.
Bear & Carly
Bear has spoken about his friendship with Carly before and took a selfie with her before they set out on the climb. While describing what went down, he made sure to explain that it would not have been possible without Carly's expert guidance.
"I started out with a small cliff, not bad for my first actual climb! I hope to do a lot more in the near future and hone my rock climbing skills! I got the opportunity thanks to the AWESOME safety lady Carly, who has become a good friend of mine, I went with Ray Kenya and Carly who are all part of the safety team that keeps the crew from our show safe! My first climb was a total blast and I can’t wait for the next one! The rope is pink because it was Carlys’ special rope, she was the lead climber, she really knows her stuff! EXTREME points all day long. Here are a couple of pictures from the adventure, my very first climb! Thank you Carly!!!"
Whistler Canyon Trail
Bear revealed the trailhead sign for the hike and climb they took in Washington. He shared photos of the crew hiking into the location of the climb. The full trail loop is 24 miles with an elevation gain of 3,000 ft.
According to the trail site:
"This hike is actually a completed portion of the PacificNorthwest Trail. It climbs quickly at first, and features great views of Okanogan Valley, and if you climb high enough, the North Cascades. It also has terrific wildlife viewing possibilities. Hikers commonly report seeing mountain goats on rock faces above the trail. Mule deer, bear, marmot, and wild turkey have often been sighted here as well."
Almost a Father
Bear is no doubt looking forward to passing on all his extreme activities to his child, and recently revealed that he and Raiven were expecting a boy.
"Hey everybody! Guess what? Raiven and I are having a boy!!! And we couldn’t be more excited! It’s hard to believe that this time next year, I’ll actually be a dad! Thank you everyone for following my family, and I all this time! Thank you for sticking with us and thank you for always being there for us! Thank you and God bless!!!!"
The new season of "Alaskan Bush People" premieres Wednesday, December 4 at 8 PM on Discovery Channel.
