Nicely done, 10a is good for just starting, keep it up.
Been climbing the crap out of Alpine county crags, wish I could spray more about them but old local turds would get all vaginal. Ill just say it aint woodfords and it aint elephants graveyard. Supertopo search should give the rest. Its better basalt than big chief, i think the climbings better, even though its a fraction of the size. Its always sunny there. 50 yards from the car.
Been hitting owens and alabama hills a lot this year, going back to owens on sunday night till thursday. Stoked, should be 70 degrees + by tuesday. Heavy drinking and hottubbing until then. It freaking dumped a foot here last night, wont be able to ski on it till sunday at least anyway....i say screw skiing this year. Its climbing time, and alpine season is going to be le grande this year....big plans...getting ready for alps and limestone euro sportclimbing kind of big plans.
Lots of peaks to do, 'wants' for this summer:
Traverse Mount Gardiner back and forth.
Mt Carl Heller
Mts Darwin and Mendel
Lone Pine Peak, some south face stuff and one of the N ridges.
Repeat Norman Clyde Peak, Twilight Pillar
Middle Pal ice couloirs
Mt Sill, maybe with a temple/gayley traverse. Sucks, means you gotta camp in there with what seems like an REI employee party.
Gonna hire some mules to bring in beers and beef for some of the last few, theyre 20 or so miles in. Im gonna want a 30 pack and a porterhouse ready....
