We found Red Rocks-like sandstone in Ventura County - who knew such a thing existed?

Every once in a blue moon, the non-stop 'splorin' pays off!

We climbed the barb on spearhead yesterday. Amazing early season in the park this year (better than last year?) and I am psyched to get up there again.

Saturday, we decided to go for a mileage day at the Gunks. 2000' aka 'Half Dome Day' seemed like a round number. At the start of the Nears is a high concentration of classic moderate routes that can be linked to the top in one rope-length. And, it doesn't get *as* crowded as the Trapps.

Anyway, we got it done without getting snarled in traffic and it was super-fun. Heat, humidity, cicadas and a snake encounter added to the jungle atmosphere. All those climbs are great quality and many would be up there with the best of their grade at the Gunks - Gelsa, Disneyland, Yellow Ridge, Broken Sling, Grand Central. Alphonse has to be one of the easiest 5.8s at the Gunks though. Its not even 5.10.

I got an extra lap in when I had to run up to the top to of the cliff to relay instructions to the partner of a guy who had fallen while following Inverted Layback and was hanging in space with no prusiks. Wish, I'd seen the whipper. He was a fair way down and was probably grovelling around in that thing when he took the sideways dive.

Mojede, looks like the kids are tearing it up. Jack badly sprained his ankle while playing baseball which we made him play so no climbing for a while. Would love to get him back out there.

alpinebisou nice video! a wayback machine indeed... I did many of those climbs in the 1983 to 1985 seasons... hard to believe that was 30 years ago!

thanks for the memories!

Royal Arches with final rappel clocking in at around 3am. The ascent was speedy, though.

Laps on Frenches Dome. 10 pitches in total. Ran into old friends at swapped lines. Encouraged a young couple trying to figure out how to handle a baby and climbing. Climbed with the old and climbed with kids younger than my youngest. Stayed cool at this elevation - really worth the drive today. I remember why I like to climb between the views, the movement, the people. It was a fabulous day.
