The rain finally stopped after 4 days straight and we took advantage of the warm and dry conditions and got after it at White Mountain. On Thursday I managed the FA of the Dumpling project! Dubbed ‘The Dumpling of All Evil’ after the VRG classic The Route of All Evil, this line was bolted and almost sent by Sharma last year, and Chris was gracious enough to leave it as an open project. Even though it only took me three days, I think it’s in the 9a range, judging by how much harder it is than the other routes...
i just came back from Cuba. One month there to develop climbing in the island. Three new hard routes (9a, 8c, 8c).
Yes, I know … I am obsessed with big bend …but my friend and first Moab area climbing partner, Linus, made a little clip yesterday of a quick sesh at the boulders. http://vimeo.com/18487083 We have been LOVING this unseasonably warm and sunny winter and making the best of conditions! Perhaps too much … I know have 2 knees the size of grapefruits and a new/old "butt-connector" injury. But that's the chance one takes when lobbing 15-footers, even onto the best of pads and spotters!
Review of Yosemite Jeans and Belt Buckle (A bit tongue in cheek, but I love the pants and buckle!) I just got a pair of the new Yosemite Jeans and one of the new Five Ten Yosemite belt buckles and I can’t say enough about this combination.
Hey all, please check out Team VH's album! Putting faces to names! Thanks!
