Bishop Video From Walker

Check out this video Walker Emerson posted to Vimeo.  Walker is a good friend with a hurt finger who I spent many a laugh with in South Africa and many other climbing spots.  Nice one, Walker!

Siemay does V11 "Beefy Gecko"

I wanted to be at the last HAF comp at Incline Villiage, Lake Tahoe.  Siemay wanted to go to Bishop to do some projects she had and we had 4 days off.  ...The choice was obvious.

Siemay sending her first V11 "Beefy Gecko" at the Sads in Bsihop, CA

I sent the "Prozac Dyno" (V9) and Charlie's Rib dyno (V8) and tried Ambrosia (V11) a bunch with my friends Alex Honald and Justin Alarcon.

Justin came as close as one can come to sending "Haroun & The Sea Of Stories" and I worked out the moves on the stand: "The Fall guy."  I also worked "Mandala" again.


I feel a little fat from working too much this winter, or maybe it's just that old familiar weakness.  ...Then I look at Siemay crushing and wonder, Woman keeps improving!!!  The weather was great down there although it was a little warm.

Anyway, this next week we met up with Dave Hatchett for a private tour of San Diego's Premiere (Private) bouldering paradise: RAINBOW ROCKS.

I shall have a report soon.  We will also try to hit Black Mtn. and maybe J-tree to check out Chris's "Iron Resolution" amongst other things.

Siemay Sends V11, Noah Writes stuff.

Congrats to Siemay Lee!!! She sent "Beefy Gecko" V11 at the Sads down in Bishop this last weekend.  That's like 14b/c crux.  I will have video of the send up when I get some time.  Bishop is lovely this time of year.
