Moonlight Buttress

Apr 22nd 2014 — Climbing,National Parks,Zion — 12:24 pm

Cole and I climbed Moonlight Buttress. This involved a day to climb the first several pitches, a rest day, and then we did the route in a day. I don’t have pictures from the ascent day because my camera broke on this trip (again).

A chap by the name of Alex Honnold got famous by climbing this route without a rope in a little over two hours on April 1, 2008.

The Glass Menagerie (In Part)

How I spent my birthday. Took the alternate route completely bypassing the 2nd and most of the 3rd pitch. Some of my proudest climbing ever.

Invisible Airwaves Redux

Feb 24th 2014 — Climbing — 8:45 am

Came back to give Invisible Airwaves another hammerless attempt. Made it to the first bolt on the second pitch again and bailed again. Must be getting better though as it was less horrifying this time.

Final Pictures

Jan 21st 2014 — Biking — 5:49 pm

The day we were riding into one of the largest Mayan sites in Middle America, Tikal, my camera that I had bought right before this trip quit working. Several hours were spent trying to fix this to no avail.

The rest of the trip consisted of

  • camping in Tikal
  • walking around Tikal the next day
  • spending 2.5 days on the gringo-filled island town of Flores for some of the coldest weather of the trip
  • spending a day taking a series of buses from Flores back north to Valladoid, Mexico and camping on the roof of a random abandoned house there
  • biking from Valledoid west to Chichen-Itza, visiting the ruins, and then biking back east to Chemax and camping outside of a random abandoned house
  • biking to Coba and visiting the ruins there
  • biking back to Akumal
  • spending half a day in Akumal
  • taking a series of buses and a cab to the Cancun airport
  • sleeping in Terminal 3 of the Cancun airport
  • Catching a flight back to Greenville the next day
  • The end.
