6 photo challenge at the request of #finishingflight
When someone as cool as Caiti asks you to do something, you do it!
1. Working on a big painting in my old studio.Must have been around 2008.
2. We just got off a terrifying climb on Middle Palisade. This pic was taken after struggling for 6+ hours to find a safe way down. The way down wasn’t safe, but we all made it.
3. In Yosemite Valley looking for something to climb.
4. I took Jess out wine tasting for her birthday. It was mostly fun. I had to drive.
5. Last November I led a climb in Yosemite Valley called Super Slide. It was really fun and is the hardest trad climb I have led. I felt pretty good rappelling off of that thing just as the sun was setting. I think it’s 5 pitches of 5.9 crack. 
6. My good friend Justin and myself at an A’s game. We both love baseball. Justin is a super good friend. I have known him since we were 14. He is going through some shit right now and I wish he didn’t live all the way down in San Diego. He is one of the nicest people I know. 6 photo challenge at the request of #finishingflight

I lost my backpacking and favorite climbing partner to the National Park Service. I am happy and excited for her. I am also bummed out because she can never be replaced. We have had more epics than anyone should ever want to have and we always end up laughing our way through every sketchy situation we get ourselves into.

End of an era. 

Drakes beach

@pinncat rappel

Great belay ledge.

@jerkdivision adding some color to this wet mess of a #painting

Heading back to Lover’s Leap tomorrow for some sketchy anchor building and suspect gear placement on run outs.

Can’t Wait!
