Yosemite Meadow Fire

Sep 30th 2014 — Yosemite — 7:15 pm

Pictures of what was known as “The Meadow Fire”, in Yosemite National Park, spreading into Little Yosemite Valley and eventually to Cloud’s Rest on September 7th, 2014. A persistent drought combined with windy conditions meant the fire spread quickly.

These were taken from an Iphone in the early afternoon as the fire progressed.

Eventually the 80 or so hikers stranded on Half Dome were evacuated by helicopter with combined efforts of several local rescue agencies.

We got down from the Prow and the next day we drove to Parachute Center in Lodi and went skydiving.

I was strapped to the front of a dude from Hungary named Roman who didn’t speak much English.

Highly recommended.

The Prow, Washington Column

Sep 6th 2014 — California,Climbing,Walls,Yosemite — 8:57 am

Last week Richard and I climbed The Prow on Washington Column. This was the first time I had ever slept in a portaledge and the first time I have ever done a route where you have to haul all your gear up with you.

The route is steep and exposed, tall compared to the rest of the planet but a short wall by Yosemite Valley standards.

Props to Richard for swinging leads with me, all his help with rope management and hauling, and his easy-going attitude.
