Spring at the Crag

After last week's icy incarceration it was wonderful to be out in the warm sun, climbing at Sinks. The cliffside weather greatly exceeded our expectations. The forecasts called for mostly cloudy skies.

Sierra has improved her framing, but hasn't mastered auto-focus. Here are a couple shots of my best attempt on "Citadel of Hope."

My leading is improving, but my endurance still needs work.

A full afternoon, enjoying singing birds, and sprouting plants. Spring has arrived at the cliffs of Sinks Canyon.

Other areas around Lander are just beginning to melt.

On Monday the trailer for Core will be available. Lander climbing is featured in the film, and based on the quality of Chuck's last film, it should be excellent. I can't wait to see it.

This week I really enjoyed an interview with Matt Samet at Mountains and Water. I'd always wondered what it would be like to work for a climbing magazine. Now I know, and it wasn't what I expected. One of the most interesting blog posts I've read.
