Ian Dory: Traveling on his way to Bishop

 
 
March 22, 2010 -  Ian Dory    
 

"For me Hueco has always been the place to go for hard bouldering. Not Counting the 3 days I was here last year, this was my first long stay at Hueco Tanks. What a good trip I had, 3 months of climbing allowed me to get  a lot of climbing done. Spending a lot of time doing the the usual Hueco classics like Right Martini, Diophanous Sea, and as many high balls as I could. Anything and everything was our motto.

I did a lot of the climbs that I wanted to do but there is so much more still. Surprisingly there are still many many first ascents waiting to be done. I had the opportunity one up myself, Tom Cat is the name, East mountain is where it is and when I first saw it I was not that psyched, in fact I was trying a climb right next to it called Down In Flames.

Jon Cooper and Neal were the guides for the trip and I need to thank Neal for getting me psyched on sending it. It would have been put up years ago but the landing is bad and you need lots of pads for it to be safe.

To finish, Hueco is sick and I'm psyched that I got to spend so much time there. When the weather got bad we jumped in the car and started driving to Bishop, hitting up all the cool spots on along the way. I mean the longest possible way, with a great time in J-Tree and then an easy drive up the California coast to check out the cool beach bouldering.

Now, rested up and ready to start cranking again we are finally on our way to Bishop. Psyched!"
