Todd and trad and all you other guys are making jealous.

It's only been three days, but dammit a guy needs to get out every so often.

For the past month I've been putting most everything else aside to get out and boulder on my own, nearly every other day. Last Sunday was a change of pace and a full, but relatively relaxing, day with family and friends.

Got in my first solo of the Harney Flow today. That thing usually is really cold and super platy, but it was in pretty good shape today. It is probably the only ice climb in leadable shape in the Black Hills as it's been so warm, but the warm temps made this pretty plastic.

Also did my first video edit.

Isa's 1st day out in awhile. lots of debris at the base of this slab from when it fell down in last weeks rain. reforming just in time to fall down in this weeks rain. This pile was on a ledge 55m up. it took stubbys where you might want them but never saw any enticeing belays so did it in one long 85m pitch to the trees.

"Coté clair de la force" WI5+, 30m, at rivière Mastigouche in Lanaudière Qc (it's on MP).
Last year the bottom section never formed fully so you needed to dry tool up, wonder what will happen after the heatwave, hope its northern orientation will help.
Just to the right of it there's the dark side of the force in the corner WI4 M6.

To balance out those desert pics, here's some shots from my afternoon hike: from the end of my driveway you cross the road, enter the woods, and walk uphill for 20 minutes or so. Bonus points for going just before sunset and right after a Christmas day storm.

My better half with her lesser quarter. After 29 years together it is like we share one brain; problem is she's the one using it, which explains my poor math at the start of this caption.

Not me or my photo, but I had a great time on the Grotto columns yesterday. Pretty cool to climb there since my visit previous was probably more than ten years ago and before I had jammed many cracks and was even leading much on gear. We had the lush green pit to ourselves for the better part of the day, probably due to the freezing start and the beckoning sport clipping of the Gold Wall.

The notable climbs at the Grotto were Rawhide (pictured above) and slapping up the double arete, refrigerator to the sky, iconic climb called AC Devil Dog (pictured below). That first section is slick on the feet and it takes a minute for you to remember the odd counter pressure at work when you are gripping two aretes and pasting your feet on nothing.

I hadn't meant to lead the climb, content to sit on a send more than a decade ago old, but my partner's stoked onsight shamed me and I probably needed the focus of the lead to get up the thing clean anyway.

On to the Gold Wall!

Temps were perfect, with the heat sink working as a welcome asset rather than functioning as part of Summer's muggy beat down.

Crowds were fairly pleasant and I pleasantly sand bagged myself to the finish the day, stuttering on the crux of the 5.11+ clip up that would end the day's pleasantries and complete a new partner's day tour of the area. [Three times using "pleasant"? You kidding me?]

We left the muddy, rutted road and wound our way through the foothills and back across the cow dung flats to our home on the central plains while evening thickened.

My little guy got a kiss on the head and papa got to work washing the day's bottles.

Nothing ground breaking, just a good old fashioned climbing day.
