After sunset the hot spring six miles south of Bishop is the meeting point for many climbers and also some non-climbers. As well as relaxing in the warm water also highly scientific discussions are held. So a dirt biker astonishing that: “What, do you call the rocks, you want to climb, problems? What a life if these are your only problems!”

“Our boulders are problems for us! If we fall in love with a line, we have to try again and again to get on top. We put  all our energy and thoughts in that climb.” So in addition to the basic questions: Where should we sleep? What should we eat? and Where we should climb? there is the question: How can I climb my project?

“Real problems would have been, if you didn’t manage to get our visa in the last hour before departure or if you would be one of the 17 climbers on a day that turns up with a bad ankle in the hospital in Bishop. “

While getting soaked in the natural hot spring, I was thinking about the words of the dirt biker. A month bouldering in Bishop, Joshua Tree, Red Rocks and Castle Rock is behind us. We saw beautiful landscapes, were at the cities of L.A., Las Vegas and San Francisco, were hiking at the Yosemite, had a bath in the sea and spent as often as possible the evening in the hot springs. In short, it was perfect!

„Yes man, you are right! This are no problems, only projects! “

Climb safe, drive safe and take care!
