Can You try your hardest without screaming?
Thanks to my sponsors for their continued support. I chose these companies over many others for their committment to our sport, our planet, and the increased happiness of all human beings. Check out their websites and buy their quality products!
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.

Seek perfection of character, respect others & Try Hard. Noah as usual
I Try Hard. I believe that the body follows the mind and that we are all artists creating a masterpiece (or a disaster) of our lives. When we take responsibility for our actions, our health, our happiness, and other's happiness, we improve the quality of life for ourselves and all those around us. Life is short, do something amazing with yours. Don't sit by idly watching others pursue their dreams; create your dreams, make them reality and take advantage of this amazing fleeting dream!
