Yosemite With My Brother. Goodrich Pinnacle, Right Side.

Apr 30th 2015 — California,Climbing,Yosemite — 12:20 pm

By Davy’s last day we were getting a bit slab-crazy and decided to do a 6-pitch route up Glacier Point Apron. The Supertopo description for this route makes it sound a bit easier than I found it to be.

We made it to the top without any major complications though.

Yosemite With My Brother Part 1

Apr 26th 2015 — California,Climbing,Yosemite — 1:57 pm

My brother Davy came up to Yosemite during my last couple of weeks there, and discovered that he is pretty into climbing. We went just about every day he was here. Usually pushing the daylight. These aren’t totally in chronological order.

The pictures that are on the wide and smooth chunk of granite (called Glacier Point Apron) were from some of his last days here.

Davy has had a pretty old-school introduction to the world of climbing. We climbed outside for his first time ever years ago in Gallatin Canyon, MT. I don’t think he’s ever climbed indoors and most of the climbing we did this trip involved cracks.

Crack climbing was all they used to do back in the day, but the advent of sport climbing and climbing gyms has made face climbing more the norm now. I would venture by the time he left that Davy had gained more crack-climbing experience than the majority of climbers.

April Snow in Yosemite

Apr 10th 2015 — California,National Parks,Yosemite — 8:47 am

This was the first time I’ve experienced snow in the valley since moving to El Portal last May. I am leaving soon and I’d been hoping to see some winter before then, so this was a nice bit of closure.
