Now, I been rock'n hard everyday (as usual) but I haven't been climb'n them hard rocks so much. I've been spending most of the summer riding my bicycle and chasing doods through the woods at mock speeds. All in preparation for SINGLE SPEED USA! This year the race was in a beautiful little town in the upper peninsula of Michigan, called Copper Harbor.Surrounded on all sides by Lake Superior these trails are no joke... Super long climbs up never ending single track, and amazing descents of either flowing buffed trails or butthole puckering technical rock gardens. But as you all already know, that ain't no problemo for your boy Brock Steel. Just look at them guns. They don't call me Brock Steel for nothin ya know!

This event has your fair share of feats of strength mixed with drunken bike challenges. But the the real nitty gritty of the trip is the race itself. There were mid trail aid stations full of whiskey and bacon. Two of my favorite things. All the tough guys rode in their street cloths just like me. Leave the spandex at your momma's house ya rodies!



I was honored to ride with the 8Lumens team. Gettin after it in the U.P. with that wild bunch was awesome. Beers were had, bikes were ridden, and lots of mid trail heckling was thoughtfully delivered.

I also got to lay my taint upon a one of a kind Oddity Cycles custom bike for the whole race. Ain't she a beaut?

Riding her was more exciting and explosive than anything or anyone I've ever ridden. She cornered like a dream and descended like a bat out of hell. Burnsy sure did a number when he put this one together. Yes sir, I rode that bicycle hard and put her away wet and dirty!

Everyday Rock Star Fame

Along our journey we've met and connected with really great people who can dig what we're doing. Some truly excellent folks have even helped us along with our mission by either donating, buying merch, or by sharing our adventures with others. 

This summer Climbing Magazine has even jumped on the Shred All Fear bandwagon! Whaaat? That's right! Page 20 in the August issue of Climbing Mag features an interview with your favorite interstellar rock stars; Brock & Rexxx! If you haven't already, pick yourself up a copy, take it to your favorite quiet safe place, and swoon over the fame and status of our rock star lives.

Brock Dakota Corbin Rex

We asked our long time friends and media directors, Corbin Brady and Dakota Walz, to step in front of the cameras this time. We couldn't be more excited to have our scruffy faces in print. But what really tickles my white little hiney is that one of Corbin's photos made it in a global publication!

Brock Dakota Corbin Rex

The only reason we asked Dakota to join was cause we felt bad asking Corbin but not him. Oh, and also because he happened to make his way into the September issue of Climbing Mag. You can read about him and our friends from Jeremy Collins Art, and MooreClimbing doing all kinds of sweet slimestone climbs beginning on page 56!

Who would have guessed that playing around in the dessert with your best friends and making a mess of things could be so rewarding?

Stickers in the mail!

Are you one of the beautiful saints who donated to the Shred All Fear Gas Tank?? 

Did you allow the manly mulleted duo to sleep on your super comfy couch??

Are you one of the most hip happenest doods or doodettes around??

Yes? Well have we got news for you!


We are so freaking excited to have a whole mess of letters and stickers coming atch ya!!

Each envelope has its own hand drawn artwork made custom for each of our fantastic friends and fans. Brock thought we should send them to art museums all over the country. We decided that we had better not completely blow the minds of all those artsy fartsy folk who haven't experienced the good word of the Super Stoke yet. 


If you like what you see (come on, look at all those arts) and want to get in on this action, you can find that yellow donate button at the top left of the website ;)

Like the idea of helping Brock-o and I spread the Gospel of the Shred all over Earth, but don't think stickers are enough? Well, keep your pretty eyes peeled because we got all kinds of righteous new stuffs in the works.  We don't want to give to much away... BUT I can say that when you see what we got coming, you'll need to be the first kid on the block rock'n the fresh new Shred All Fear merch!

Yosemite National Party

 We've been travel'n and climb'n and rock'n the Earth for a long time now. From it's dirtbag desert parties to it's super human stoke factory of awesome climbers, we've been blown away by how righteous this planet can be. Nothin could have prepared us though for how powerful this freaking piece of rock could be! Like the towering beautiful Golden Godess of Saturn's Savage Rings Sector, El Capitan leans impenetrable with complete dominance of the valley. Yet she stands uncontrollably enticing.   


Brock and I became fatigued just from craning our necks to look up in awe at the thing.  We began to get very dizzy and exhausted. Maybe it was all the beer and Its-It ice cream cookies or maybe it really was just the sheer power of El Cap. What ever it was, we woke up in the meadow a few hours later from a pre-send power-nap. Feeling fresh and feisty Brock, suggested we stand on top of the granite behemoth and do the ceremonial Orangutan O-lectric Slide on it's head. I couldn't think of a better way to spend the day, so we finished our post nap beers and hiked up to climb it's easiest free route, The East Buttress

After a perfect day of incredibly fun cracks, small roofs, chimneys, off widths, faces, water falls, and vertigo inducing views, we summited a few thousand feet above the valley floor. If ever the rumored wells of infinite stoke existed they might be found somewhere in between this dance floor and Half Dome in the distance.

Blown away by all the shred potential the valley had to offer we quickly made our way back down to scope out our next climb. When we got back to the meadow our new friend, Donkey D*ck Dave, greeted us with champagne and grilled foods. We toasted to the beauty of the valley and to the absence of any park strangers ruining our good times.

The next day our homie Pat suggested we climb the world class Royal Arches with him.Without hesitation B-rock strapped my face melting riff machine to back and we ventured on up this historical peace of rock. In homage to the beauty and quality of the route, I played The Danger Zone by the one and only Kenny Loggins a few times. I flexed the good ol rock cannons once or twice as well... just for good measure. 


The Royal Arches could not have lived up to their hype more. Beautiful waterfalls, gorgeous splitter cracks, and rock climbing's first pendulum swing? Perfecto Respecto Gorgeoso!!


I know what you're thinking right now:

"Ya cool whatever, but where is the new video of you losers playing geetars on top of rocks and stuff??"

Never fear! B-rock-shiz-nasty is editing footage RIGHT NOW! Hold tight and our next video will be up for your eyeballs's viewing pleasure in no time!!
