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...

Had a casual, cool, cloudy day at the Dome. My partner brought aling a roommate who needed coaching on leading trad; so we stuck to easy stuff and did that whole thing. Kevin did lead his first pitch at the end of the day, a little 5.7.

I was eying the Umph Slot, but it was a bit cool and I wasn't feeling the love, but her sirens call now haunts me from the comfort of my living room and I will have to go back and give her a go. I luv me some off widths.

Left Edge &#40;good name!&#41;, the Dome.

Jack and I climbed some late season ice on TR and cleaned up the farm. Can't figure out how to rotate the picture on my new computer but it was actually pretty good. Jack first time getting it clean on TR in community cave.

Looks well on its way to being baked out, eh Mike? Time to put away the pointy stuff and dig out the sticky rubber.

Many thanks to some very nice So Cal folks for inviting me to spend the day climbing with them: Roots, Amanda, Cosmiccragman, Mr. E and Justthemaid. A good time was had by all at two Apple Valley crags (apparently not to be named). Beautiful climbing (with just enough loose rock to keep everyone alert) on featured granite!

Blue skies, great temps, donuts, a portable toilet (we didn't use it Locker), and a swarm of killer bees overhead. Someone has some photos, but not me...

Edge, nice pic that shows Umph Slot and Super Squeeze, those are both a fun way to burn lots of calories in a very short distance. Did ya do The Owl and East Slab? Those are both really fun easy leads. Nice!

Yesterday. No pics. Donner. A comedy of errors, really. Traveling up and down old 40. Avoided shirtless dudes gang banging the lines at roadcut. Black Wall's left mass was guarded by manzanita thickets now obscuring the trail proper. Wallowed around impotently in it before disgustedly relenting to the Peanut Gallery, avoiding the circle jerk once more. Two unfriendly and stoned chaps took off to join the roadcut circus. Warmed up in the Middle Ages. I edged and smeared to a personal worst on bolt run. Hmmm... Granite game = rusty. Then to the underwhelming panoply of... Stealth Wall. Considered joining the sausage fest along the way, but a guy was booting up on the line I wanted. Still, a nice day, and my lifestyle added to a mediocre climbing outing left me suitably drained. Lotsa work to do if summer's dreams will come to fruition!

Hey Mike,

Just got back from Yosemite after 10 days climbing with Jim Donini. He is still an animal, and I'm trashed, after a 6 month layover, from this damn Winter up here in N.H.

Tom ( Big Bird), just took my place, for another 10 days. J.D. is there for 1 month.
