Whitemeat X Darkmeat Go to the Valley! +VIDEO

Whitemeat and me got the entire week off of school for Thanksgiving week so we decided to spend our time going to sendtown in the valley!!! But before I got on the plane to leave Colorado I had to get a few laps in on Werk Supp and Touch n' Go in Eldo. Thankfully I didn't miss my flight! And in case you were wondering, this is the brother of the whitemeat posting:)

We got to the valley on Sunday around 2 pm and decided to check out the Lower Yosemite Falls Ampitheatre. We found four or five good climbs here and it was well worth it.

Day 5: Turkey Day. Whitemeat sent Midterm in the morning. Then we did some laps on Presidential followed by a search for Deliverance/Cedar Crack. Then it was back to Wawona for turkey dinner with the entire family! It was good.

Day 6: Lost Arrow Spire time. We left Wawona at 4:30 am (way too early) and hiked up to the top of the falls. Great fun on this climb. The parents even met us at the top to see us do the tyrolean traverse and to help carry a rope down on the decent. Here is a video of the day courtesy of the whitemeat!



I'm currently headed back to Colorado for finals but we have plans for xmas break. Keep sending monkeys!

Taking a Midterm in the middle of Thanksgiving break?

Ironic, isn't it, but many of us have done so, just maybe not with our sibs.

Great report and perfectly timed for this holiday. Thanks.

Excellent sendage in a short amount of time! That's almost an average year's worth of ticking for me when I lived 4 hours away.
