Motivation Photos - an addendum to the last post.

A big Crew at South Bliss attacks "Pure Bliss" V9, an Amazing, amazing compression arete. One of the true South Lake Tahoe Classics! After numerous days of effort by many strong local climbers, and with the beta super subtle and elusive, I roped down the thing, sussed it and bagged the FA. Jimmy Haden used the discovered beta later the same day to get the Second Ascent of this tall fun line. If you visit Tahoe to climb, you should put this one on the list.

Right next to "Pure Bliss" is an amazing tall and proud 5.12 (V4) near-solo called "Ignorance is Bliss." D Grif put this line up after top-rope rehersal. Jimmy Haden and I did quick ascents shortly after. We all agreed that it is also a perfect line on bullet stone.

Julie Otis enters the crux of "Pure Bliss."

Joel Zerr makes the first Flash of David Outcalt's fun compression line, "Foxy Lady" V8.

Siemay and lil Bruce going big on an easy line at a cool new Jay Sell spot in Nevada.

Noah Kaufman on a sweet super-hard project at the new spot. Development is underway at this cool area.

Videos to come!

Seek perfection of character, respect others & Try Hard. Noah as usual
