Supermoon in Yosemite
Wednesday February 14, 2018 6:08am
Took a ton of supermoon photos, photos of people climbing and of a few scenic spots. Click the link to see all. Don't have the time to re-post all of them here, unfortunate or fortunate, but I'm a busy bee now.

Thanks for the pics, V.

Gotta say crash pads on BSS seems kinda light. :P

Is that a Mt. Watkins photo with the dikes?

Really great pics Vitaliy.

How did you like that Center of the Universe?

Did you get a chance to do the one that starts just up the gulley from it? Bit harder, also tops out, some really good stuff on it.

We should meet up one day and do a little boxing together. Would be super fun, with no gloves. Are you in CA?

Yes that is Watkins with all the dikes.

Center of the universe is very cool, especially two fingercrack pitches after the big ledge. I have done the Voyager and part of some hard route that would be a good project for me. One route I'd like to do is Bird of Prey. Isnthst what you are talking about? Have you done it already? Post a TR or send me some beta if you have. Would be good to know if it is worth doing.

Not sure if it's the same one, maybe not, I'll PM you what I've got. Definitely worth doing.

Edit:

Just checked, yes, I guess what we did was link what's called Bird of Prey (first 7 pitches) into what was being called To Infinity (another 6).
