Heading to the gorge today! I headed over to the Black Sheep to warm up some oatmeal and take care of some business. Alex will meet me here shortly and then we will be off. I am a little bit sore from the past few days of bouldering but I am super excited to get on some ropes. I am super grateful that Alex wanted to go do some climbing in the gorge. We are gonna take it easy for the most part, 10's and 11's and Alex has his eye on several 12's. I will be sure to give them a go but three days of bouldering may not support it. Either way, today is shaping up to be a wonderful day. My bouldering endeavors have not seen many sends this trip, I have spent most of my days working routs with little success. I am have a blast and looking forward to getting some air under my feet.
I managed to get most of my work done today. There was really no better place for me to do it than here at the Black Sheep Coffee shop along the 395. The atmosphere was wonderful and I could really focus on completing my work. The Bishop bouldering guide sat next to me the entire time, I would take breaks and check out some climbs I wanted to do. I'm off for now to get some bouldering in before the sun sets. Climbing pics to come!
Ill be heading up to Bishop in the "Caution" Van sometime around February 15th. I was looking forward to working Stained Glass but my right middle finger might say otherwise. Regardless, its gonna be a great week up in Bishop. Ill have time to get some work done, climb, relax on hot springs and hopefully meet some good people!
I have been climbing for many years now. Climbing has helped me become the person that I am today. I created this blog in order to work on my writing, keep track of climbing accomplishments and to remember the amazing people I meet along the way. I have always enjoyed reading other adventure/climbing blogs; they have always served has inspiration and sort of "romanticization" of what it is I love. In the end, this blog is for myself, so that in years to come, I can look back and remember, the who and what, I might have otherwise forgotten.
