Our good friends Amy & Evan under their namesake problem which I put up on the day of their wedding. Evan just sent and Amy has "vowed" to do so soon!
These guys are wonderful friends and an intergal part of the Tahoe scene. Def tough to say goodbye to these cats, but we will see them again!
"Amy & Evan" V8*** at Cold Stream in Tahoe. One of many great lines at that sweet zone.
So... We have moved. We are setting up our digs right now in Fort Collins and so far we are loving it.
We will miss this view!
We stopped over in Vegas for a week and spent a fair amount of time with our friend and fellow climberdoc, Ed Kwon. Ed is a trauma surgeon now, but he'll always be like a little brother since we met in med school in New Orleans when I was a senior and he was a neophyte.
That said, he's the man now! If I caught a bullet, I'd want Ed workin' on me. Anyway, we got to climb and chill and also spend time at our friend Mike Doyle's pad. Mike is also a rad dude. The scene was crazy in Vegas the whole week. We ran into many friends and climbed on new stuff with my old/young friend Daniel Woods and his buddy Jimmy Webb. Both these guys are super super nice and low key/down to earth. Oh yeah, and they destroy of course.
Check this out:
Left to right: 8b, 8a+, 8c. W.T.F... Amazing bloc! 4 star lines!!!
Jimmy gettin' buck on "The Nest" V15.
Anyhow, we also got to see Nalle H. Again who we had briefly met in Rocklands. It was a fun reunion and Kenny B. and Jules rounded out the team. Oh yeah, we even saw Chuck!!!
Zun also had a blast. We went to Mandalay Bay and saw the amazing aquarium there. All in all, it has been a crazy whirlwind. We miss the Tahoe crew fa sho, but bigger adventures await us!
Happy holidays to everyone. Don't get too out of shape!
Seek perfection of character, respect others & Try Hard. Noah as usual.
