Had a nice day out yesterday with good people Dwain, Daphne and Michael in Apple Valley, but the wind was strong and gusty. We got worn out from the wind rather than the climbing.

Not sure this is really what this thread is about, but as a part of my ongoing climbing education (I'm 57 and need to keep my mind active), my "mentor" started teaching me aid techniques. We started at "the Pirate" (C2) on Suicide on Saturday. I got to jumar up and clean/inspect all the placements and figure out how to traverse to the anchor while still removing all the pro. Fun times!

Since its rated 5.12c/d free, I wasn't sure I was expecting to see as much chalk in the little pods as I did. And all the way up! More than one person has been free climbing up that thing this season already. Impressive as some of the pods would not even fit my pinkey finger in them.

led that in my first season of climbing, 1970.

After nailing my way up with interesting tied off stacks (due to our paltry rack) I looped a sling over a chicken head where the crack ended and clipped in the etrier and stood up.

Then at eye level the knot on the sling unraveled.

The chicken head was immediately mantled and the free climbing commenced.

I've never used a tied sling that wasn't bounce tested since.

With my shoulder pretty much out of commission for climbing I decided to take Jack to the Big Horns for some backcountry skiing and camping. It was really great conditions and great weather for skiing. Apparently the weather every where else around here was crap. So it was very fun.

Mike. sorry you are on IR but seems you made the most of it!
Big mike and everyone else. great stuff!

I got out after work. Rope soloed one of my 5.7's rapped and climbed it again with the drill pack on TR to clean and get myself and gear up where I wanted to be. scrambled accross a tree ledge to an anchor I put in last year. did a bunch of cleaning and trundeling. and got a new climb ready to go :) late tired and dirty...

Told the boss yesterday I was suffering from a Vitamin D deficiency and went to work on the "Proj". What a burly blue collar affair it is turning out to be.

Mike- The Horns have a pile of snow this year. Looks like Jack was having a blast!

Several laps up to Lizard Ledge at Black Wall on Donner Pass yesterday.

Only 6 pitches, but they felt like 12.

Good on you Mike.

You just got home and you're back at it already!

How is that nasty toe doing. I imagine that mess is gonna be with you for at least the summer/fall season...

Tuff bastard you are.

Jason that corner looks really nice. Is that Edwards or something new?
