Its been a few weeks since I checked in and sadly I don't have a lot to report. My good buddy Jake List is going to be heading to Boulder for three months this summer and as unfortunate as that is (Jake's psych is off the charts for any of you that don't know him) I am glad he'll be there when Jenny and I drive out. Our trip has been postponed for a month, we just moved in a new apartment and need the extra time to settle in and get my business rolling. The weather here has been horrible with many days in the 80s and 90s, high humidity and more recently some rain. Regardless I've been hitting the rocks when I can and getting pretty pscyhed to climb at Smugglers' Notch this summer (higher elevation and a bit more wind help). Here is a shot from last weekend at the Moon Tower Boulder in the Notch, I climbed the classic Moon Tower the week before. The top crux is at ~25' and certainly not the V1 Jake kept assuring me it was.
