Every once in a while I get to push the limits of what my clients think is possible. I had the opportunity to take one of my best clients up an awesome 6 pitch 5.10b climb and discover new limits. Thanks, John for yet another great day in the hills!
This weeks itinerary:
Failed summit attempt on Middle Palisade in a day, due to rain, hail, and lightening = exciting.
Mt. Humphreys summit success with three great guys. 14 feet shy of 14,000 feet.
Mt. Emerson summit success with John. A super fun 5.4 with about 2500 feet of climbing and an exposed ridge climb!
Topped it all of with a a great 5.10b 6 pitch climb near Lundy Canyon for another great day with John!
Off to the East Buttress on Mt. Whitney in two days, let the good times roll!
Had a great day on 5/31/14 climbing the Dana Couloir! The trail up glacier canyon had patchy but firm snow with mostly trail hiking. Soft neve was encountered from the base to the top of the gully. Ice is starting to form on climbers left.
Weather was warm with bluebird sky’s and the snow conditions were perfect for climbing up or skiing down!
