The quality of the rock was excellent. We traded leads and moved quickly as retreating if the weather got bad would be rather difficult.
We set our alarms for 4:30am but I was awake before then. We made breakfast in the dark and set out to find the base of the route. About halfway there it was light enough to not need headlamps anymore. Our plan was to do the Beyer East Face I, and we were at the base of the climb before 7am.
I spent the last couple days climbing the Grande Teton with my friend Conor. It was beautiful and humbling. Before you climb you hike 7 miles, gaining around 5000 ft of elevation.
We left San Francisco and drove up Highway 1. Eventually we were in Mendocino. A ridiculously quaint town full of artists overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
