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.

Spent nearly all weekend fixing my truck, but did manage to drag the better half out and show her how rope solo works. Also got her to try ascenders for the very first time on a slabby little 40 footer up toward Washoe Boulders. It was interesting.

Here,s her with the kid, and the chosspile behind her.

yesterday, 2 new pitches on a low commitment project area, too cold and wet to go big...

no name for this one yet... I think I'd call it 5-HT but that may be giving away too much info...

Overall not a bad day on a few Herbst routes and enjoying a fun climb (Bigfoot?) to the right of Black Track. Stellar face climbing on positive holds.

Didn't suck!

Got 9 pitches in at Riverside today - trying to get ready for Indian Creek in 3 weeks.

Totally worked. No climbing pictures, but found an owl feather at the base of the first climb that was an amazing match to the rock:

didn't climb anything, unless you count the hill behind Washoe Boulders. Anyone out there like hiking and desert choss? It's not real tall, but it's there. Never heard of anyone climbing it, thinking it might suit me for aid practice.
