it had been awhile since my last batsh!t handjam. this one was better, with the glove. and no, I did not sniff the glove.


I swear I felt this little thing (the 10 ton(?) top block) shift on me a couple times.



Bump for climbing sh!tty rat-poop-covered rock and not slinging sh!t

Here's the other side. About 12 pitches of nice moderate mixed climbing (mostly unclimbed) when the snow turns to alpine ice later in the season. Totally doable in a day from La Paz.

Climbed Refried Brains (first 4 pitches) yesterday before the winds started kicking.


A late start and busy Tuesday made it a plan B kinda day.
Fun route with great variety, not much chalk either..

On the 3rd pitch I used 1 of every size cam I brought with me!!
Gotta love it!!

I particularly enjoyed climbing side by side a somewhat rare party on Rock Warrior ( you can see the leader if you look closely).

If you look closely you can see a climber in the upper corners of Epinephrine also, up in the glorious spring sunshine.

Then some late day bouldering..
All with a lovely backdrop... :)

Have skied up Crow Peak which is 10 minutes from the house about a half dozen times in the last week as the snow has been good. Several times getting an alpine start so I can get back to work by 8am. Here was yesterday’s reward.

I know it's not much to post about, but I got my first introduction to Lover's Leap last Friday (being relatively new to the Sac area). Climbed Surrealistic Pillar to the first pitch of Traveler's Buttress and then Corrugation Corner. Fun outing and a good opportunity to check out these classics while they were empty. Sorry no action pictures, just photos of the climb themselves:

Jealous!

Thanks to this stupid foot it looks like I will not be taking my annual season closer spring romp up Dracula. What else did you all get on?

Funny a couple weeks ago kinda burnt out I was saying that once all the hard steep stuff had melted out I would take a couple weeks off then hit the Gunks getting an early start on rock season. Now sitting on the couch another lap up Dracula looks freaking pissah ;)

Glad people are still out there having fun!

Instead of getting in shape I am about to put down a pint of vegan ice cream and about 6-8 homemade vegan chocolate chip peanut butter cookies. Gonna have a big job ahead of me once this hoof gets better!

we did a lot of driveing and then shopping for boots so we only got on dracula. I did the right side first which was pretty wet but after Isa did the left side that was a real soaker. we were both freakin drenched. I throught ahead and had dry clothes in the car but we had to get Isa to wall mart in littleton to get her into dry pants. all in all a fun outing. lots of folks out there climbing yesterday. this rain today will kill a bunch of stuff......

Not today or yesterday...

But the day before and more before that...

Only been back here about two weeks and have gotten out I think 7 times...

If I were still in Colorado it would probably be none to one or two in the same period of time...

It's fuking GREAT being "Back"...

Way fun sport climbing trip with phylp, finishing today with first trips for us both to the Riverside Quarry. The complete experience with vrooming dirt machines and chiseling power drills of creation.

Got out of work early. still lots of snow but I managed to wade up there and boulder a nice 5.7 it was a bit windy and my first time touching rock this year without steel fingers and toes... definatly got my attention as did the ice patch just over the top of the cliff that had to be negotiated in rock shoes.. bad place to slip...
