Spent the better part of an afternoon hiking right outside of Moab. I ran into a local at the trailhead who gave me directions where to locate some petroglyphs.

Left Yosemite on a Wednesday, and this was most of Thursday.

Got a bit lucky with a permit being available the same day I went into the backcountry office.

This post is feeling a bit like bragging, as is just about everything on here really. Not sure what to do about that. Maybe that is just the internet for you.

I am traveling by myself. I have a lot of freedom to do things right now.

One day things will be different.

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.

Last weekend I took a road trip down to San Diego to visit Val for her birthday. Some of the warmest November days I have ever spent in my life. A good time was had by all.

El Capitan – East Ledges Descent

Oct 27th 2014 — California,Climbing,Walls,Yosemite — 8:38 am

The East Ledges descent is the quickest way to get down off the top of El Cap.

We were sitting under the rainfly on the summit trying to wait out the rain, and decided we were just going to get colder if we didn’t start moving.
