Was the Snake Dike a part of this trip?

You don't often see photos that close up to the S face of Half Dome -- the arch looks pretty awkward. I vaguely recall either Warren or Gallen saying that exiting the top of the arch was the most strenuous aid pitch he'd done.

Rallied with a couple a fellas to Butte yesterday for an after work bouldrin' session with the Hutch.









After a brief warm-up we went into 'Vedauwoo training mode' on this OW that I previously eyed out(and got bouted on)











One of the funkier problems I've ever done.....


Then on to a couple others....







Anyone else getting out this mid-week? Weekend plans?

Cheers,

Tom

Yeah, TK, that upside-down, no-hands, sit-start (head-start?) has to have one of the coolest starting moves that I've have ever done.

edit: Jaybro, I don't want to rub it in, but it was, That, good!

I'm training for two new and exciting sports.

Sitting, and
making coffee.

I'm committed to getting very good at both.

"Jaybro, I don't want to rub it in, but it was, That, good! "

Moj, I could tell, I phrased it ironically, but meant it sincerely!

Snakefoot, send a note when you're back around. Next 5 months are the best time in the Whites for fairweather lazy craggers like me.

Wife and I climbed Venutian Blind this weekend.
Bigger deal than the bokks make it seem. The Super Topo was a bit disappointing (A First!).

More than a great trip with my favorite partner... Her first High Sierra Climb.

Summer climbing weather was fine as it gets in New Hampshire this weekend.

GOclimb and I got out to the South Buttress for a trip up Lost Souls.
P1 has good rock but slightly funky gear, could be why many folks skip it.

GO puzzles up the crux face moves on P2.

Starting the exposed arete on P3.

P4 keeps the fun going.
