Snow is melting fast here in NH, so this afternoon we went out to the local crag for our second day on the rock in this young season.

I took my new hammer (thank you, Taco Secret Santa "Gal!") and hand drilled a bolt for a new line that will go down this weekend. Two 25' slabs, both around .10 a/b lead to a slightly overhanging but jug filled 5.7 arÍte.

Well not today, but a bit of bouldering yesterday...this place had a bit of an approach. Discovered an AMAZING unclimbed boulder on my hike back to the car (but I'm keeping that one secret for now!).

And the best part was getting to spend the whole day with the world's sweetest pooch, the lovely Ms. Bean!

Jack led his first route today. Nothing hard but it was on site, putting up his own draws and threading the rope on his own. PPD(pretty proud dad).

GC those are some great looking boulders and the peak looks good too.

Got out to Castle Hill. Love it there. Need more time to find problems I can actually do though.

Then a bit of "low angle dummy dome slab".

It felt really easy since nothing was moving underfoot for once.

Then over to O'Kelly's

I'm to old for this sh#t,

and my fat fingers don't fit!

so I spotted and took pics.

I promised Triet a beer if he got up it and two if he got it clean, so I still owe him one more beer.

Jason struggled with the start, but he got the rest in good style.

Tran had enough sense to spectate and there was another Topoian lurking behind a water bottle.

I think he ran about three laps on this rig.

I climbed blind faith and sunset boulevard yesterday with my good buddy Abe. Looking forward to a good season of after work climbing in the canyon!

Got out to Fiddler on the Roof finally, yesterday. I'm waiting on my partner to send over the pics. I'll see if any are worth posting.

It went perfectly until the crux move of the 4th pitch. I whipped off on the exit. Then again on try #2. Those weren't too bad. But then higher up my foot suddenly popped and I went for another, much longer ride. By the time pitch 4 was over, we were both tired of standing around at hanging belays and decided to bail. We'll go back another day for the full send.

But my God, that route is spectacular. Especially Pitch4.

Nice job Mike. Jack got his first lead in on Friday and then I helped him put in a new route on Saturday. He got the FA and named it Ear Bone. Not bad for his second day of leading.

I went up to Alabama Hills and climbed withmy LONG time partner Greg.
I was suppose to meet Locker and Blitzo there but they were not around.
They either BAILED or never got there.

I'm waiting to hear what happened to them. :(

Here we go. Me following the traverse pitch on Fiddler, after having led pitch 1 and 2 (linked).

I also led pitch 4 which was absolutely spectacular. It was mentally consuming, but not difficult for the most part. However, I had some problems at the crux. Almost pulled it first try, then whipped off right at the end due to using the wrong sequence. Tried it again with a different sequence and failed. Tried it again with the original sequence but with a final reach up to a different hold. Pulled through, then my foot popped when standing up at the end. Argh! By then it had taken its toll mentally. Had to resort to some jiggerypokery to get past that section, and then went for yet another big ride higher up on easier ground when a foot popped off again (calves and feet were fatigued and standing firm was requiring a lot of effort).

We retreated after P4. I was over it. I want to very much go back again and do it clean (and with a harness better suited for hanging belays).

But at least through the first 4 pitches, this is an all time mega classic.

Got up to Yosemite on Saturday with a nice group from Fresno. We mostly did one pitch routes and set up top ropes. I was very pleased to be able to climb: Sherries Crack, Knob Job, Knuckleheads & Dire Straits at Pat & Jack Pinnacle area. Then in the late afternoon we traipsed over to the Sunnyside Bench area to climb: Lemon, Jamcrack Route and Bummer. I had a slip on Bummer and Dire Straits totally wore me out, but they are all good routes. Knuckleheads was particularly fascinating climbing. The moves are just so interesting.

I was particularly pleased to climb stuff that I was climbing in the 1980's and maybe with better technique now. Glad I was not driving home though. I slept good all the way back to Fresno.
