My first day climbing in Tuolumne, I drove up from Bishop, got out of the car at the Lembert parking lot and climbed Northwest Books. Great route. Great view. I was so psyced.
A friend once told me that someone rode a mountain bike down Lembert Dome. Does anyone know if this is true? Pretty ridiculous.
Nice TR bluering, and a nice follow-up as well. I like the summit photo of your German buddy. He looks so stoked, right?

Yea, a fun first Tuolumne route for sure.

Hey if anyone runs up that thing and finds a (red #4)? bd nut on the first pitch it's mine. Bluey was unable to recover it.

Incidentally, the moves on Grant's crack are surprisingly 5.9ish and I'm happy to say that was my first 5.9 lead. The easiest 5.9 in the valley...woo-hah?

Good times bluey!

Non-climbers included 3 kids all under the age of 10...tried to hold them off for as long as I could. They kept calling for you on the 2way radio. We still have one of the radios by the way.

Good times with the fam too! I'm sure Mason will post up pics soon. :) 'til next time :)

That descent (pic) . . I climbed it in some crepe-sole wallabees once - the rubber stuck like glue on the glacier polish .
