So you got tricked into clicking on a bouldering TR.
Sorry about that, if you were expecting real climbing probably best to look elsewhere right now.
If you are into just some fun practice climbing then maybe there is something here for you amidst the sarcasm :-)
I had an unexpected 3 days off so i woke up Sunday morning & drove the 420km from my driveway into the weird little utopia that is Leavenworth to meet a good friend from Oregon whom i hadn't seen for some time. It was a fluke we were able to line up a quick trip & I was super Psyched!!
I made the first crux getting through the border after a good 45 min wait in the middle of the church rush.
Next I shamefully drove past Index.
And no we didn't go to snowshed wall & do outer space either.
In fact i didn't even see any real climbers actually climbing there.
But it sure was pretty.
I think i even saw goatboy smellz hanging out downtown.
When i showed up after almost 6 hrs en route we wanted to climb rocks, just for practicing. So we crossed the river.
It was fun on the other side.
Then we went to the Fridge. Fridge Center was fun but Fridge Right was greasy. Maybe i was greasy?
Then we went to the cube, one of the coolest boulders around for moderate high-balls. Despite feeling like my balls were not realizing their full potential, luckily i was at least high.
There's even a crack! We were now Trad climbing!!
When it got dark we set up camp & cut up some fish & partied a bit. I was pretty tired from all the driving & laying on my crash pad all day so i crawled into the back of my car and passed out.
It was a great place to wake up.
This is DMT style right here :-] Breakfast.
My friend Jaison is a Japanese chef & i love camping with him, aside from being great company we always have such nice, unusual food.
And then we climbed some rocks.
We kind of ended up partying a bit this day after warming up so i forgot to take many photos of the afternoon/evening session.
Then it got dark, and we were out of beer.
So we cooked good food & PTFO.
Woke up again in the back of the car to a nice feeling that it was going to be a good day.
Was also looking like the tent wasn't going to get set up. #NBD
So since we didn't have to break down camp we went & climbed some more rocks. Just for fun.
Well it ended up being fun after all. Jaison had to leave @ 2 & i was adopted by some fellow Canadians Tucker & Dave & their homie Shawn from FLO-RIDA. Well, we all decided to have some fun too!
When all my skin departed, i finally chose to depart as well.
There was still some sunshine in the tumwater canyon so i stripped down & cleansed my soul in the Wenatchee. A great way to end the trip before the journey home.
After that i time warped to Squamish via Taco Tuesday in Gold Bar & a smooth crossing at the Peace Arch, exactly here i felt America & all it's freedom release me & dump me back into reality.
Just for those of you that hung out, Do you know what's up with this?? I snapped it on my way back, it would have been on the south side of hwy 2.
I thought there might be some good boulders in the woods underneath? Any info would be appreciated.
