Good on ya, Sullly! I guess I should get around to trying some of that, too.

Lame edit: We rode snow today, or tried. It was meager. Should've gone climbing.

Beautiful day in the Canyon today!! Couldn't believe it was january...felt much more like march. We started hiking at about 9am to shirtail and did gambit to jensing junky (10a). Then we hauled balls down to try to get to handcracker but some folks literally had just shown up. So I quickly suggested sooberb because I did it recently. Shralper hauled me up 2 pitches to the roof (10c) and I unfortunately had to hang once after the crux because i failed to clip a piece like 8 times. So we topped out and then scurried on over to redgarden.

We originally planned on yellow spur but it was 2 and we were a little iffy but decided we should go for it anyway. We topped out at 430 on top of yellow spur and then descended the east ledges and got to the parking lot at 5:10pm.

So 3 summits in 8hrs 10 min pretty fuking gud january day!!

Zero ice it was splitter!!

But on a serious note there was a rescue on YS last night in the rain and I watched headlamps all night long going up and down. Sounds like everything turned out alright though.

It was 23ys ago but I remember thinking the scramble off the back of YS would really suck if you got caught in the rain...

Tork, made it home in just under eight hours. Thanks again for hosting a flu-ridden guest. Still can't figure out who the hell this guy is.

Today I knocked the rocks out of a half mile of dirt road. I did not expect to reach the next intersection and wanted to quit, a number of times. But I kept going. Pressing ahead when you want to quit - is what success is made of.

A resident came out and accused me of being a saint. I replied, "I wouldn't know about that. I do know I am tired."

Rope soloed a chossy little (think 25ft) piece of granite plug up toward Washoe Boulders. Forgot the Silent Partner, so used a clove hitch on a locker. Practiced clean aid, and on the blank face next to it stuck a couple pins for practice (oh my god no! not pins!). Doesn't look like anyone's ever bothered, though there might be a couple bouldering routes of worth. Or not. Everyone just drives right on by it on the way to the boulders, and I'm not a boulderer, so who knows? Forgot the phone, so maybe today I'll drive up and get a pic or two after work and post it up here later.

Looks like a nice spot for a boulder pad on the one side, with a little overhang and some decomposing crap for a challenge. The side I climbed was pretty solid.
Snow sucks on a dirtbike, or I suck at riding one in the snow anyway. ha!
