So I Finally got to climb today in Tuolumne.

Last time I climbed was in JTree about 6 months ago, remembering Woody. His daughter, Tia, led Sexy Grandma and I made it up the rock just cause I needed to honor Woody and the name of the climb. :D

Today my son in law, Dave, and I were ready to do Darth Vader and Golfers Route but weather way hot and we didn't have the right gear so we retreated to Western Front. It was cooler but crowded. We chilled and hung around. I did Touch of Grey which, like Sexy Grandma, was right up my happy challenge line.

I made it. Took me two tries to get off the ground and then I came off once up where the gold slippery rock challenged. (Don't go that way). It was a blast, made it to the anchor and the endorphins told me I need to work my core and climb more.

LIFE: it is good and we need to keep after it. Love to all yo Campfire Taco Heads. C-YA at the Facelift.

Cheers, Lynnie

I remember hearing stories of Tuolumne way back in my days climbing in AZ... So happy I've been able experience it myself these past few years.

Another great season! I think this past weekend was my last - ended with the Regular Route; leading my sis up it (our first time on Fairview).

Great times, great people (Tony, Jay and the rest!)

A few of the views:

Half a pitch up on Lembert Dome
And the rain turned into hail
Me and Kelly, climbing some,
Thought we had better bail.

Hands all full of wet damn ropes
With iron on our racks
We abandoned all our silly hopes
Of doing Water Cracks.

Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Let it come another day

Then the storm had passed and we were half-gassed
Cuz weed will get you high
We almost missed Mathis’ truck as he was passin’ by.

So we jammed ourselves in
And we all just grinned
And he dropped us at Tenaya’s camp
We looked at the lake and we jumped right in
Cuz we were all high and damp!

Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Let it run all over me
And it stoned me to my soul
Stoned me just like Jelly Roll

And it stoned me
And it stoned me to my soul

On the way back home we sang a song
But our throats were getting dry
Then we saw the man from across the road
With the sunshine in his eyes

Well, he lived all alone in his own little home
With a great big gallon jar
There were bottles too, one for me and you
And he said, "Hey, there you are"

Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Oh, the water
Get it myself
From the mountain stream

And it stoned me to my soul
Stoned me just like Jelly Roll
And it stoned me
And it stoned me to my soul
Stoned me just like goin' home
And it stoned me

Van Morrison and MFM

Oh, the Mounties!  Gonna rain on your parade.
