Four inches of new snow, and highs in the twenties. Today our only outdoor climbing option was Killer Cave. It was a bit cold sometimes, but never too bad. We did a couple laps on three long pitches, and I feel like I got a workout. The snow covered scenery was amazing, the sun was out all day, and when the breeze was still, the stone was warm to the touch.
Vance was already climbing when we got to the parking lot.
The view from the cliff.
The best shot I managed to get of Ana on Bush Doctor.
It's such an inspiring line.
I worked the corner pitch of Baghdad up to the anchors at the roof. It's a fun pitch that I plan to send next time.
When the shade hit the climbs, it immediately felt like a good time to go home.
That's it for this week. The finish line for the bouldering guidebook is coming into view. It's still a ways off, but every night I work on the guide, I can finally see that it's actually approaching. And I'm excited to get there. It's time to get back to work.
