A new perspective

A new perspective

After vis­it­ing the place many times over rough­ly a year and a half and climb­ing there for near­ly as long, the one thing that was miss­ing from my Bernal expe­ri­ence was actu­al­ly climb­ing up the whole damn thing. Well check that off my list in a most pleas­ant way. We picked one of the clas­sic and relaxed mul­ti-pitch...
A new day

A new day

From Isla Isabel, Nayarit. I final­ly got around to assem­bling the time-lapse video. It’s been a pret­ty qui­et week oth­er­wise. Busy, but qui­et. [vimeo http://vimeo.com/41466873 w=500&h=400] Appar­ent­ly I bumped the cam­era a cou­ple of times. Still, for a first attempt at time-lapse video and man­u­al­ly tim­ing each shot, I’m hap­py.  
Local Crag Sunday (Issue #5b)

Local Crag Sunday (Issue #5b)

In which Sarah and I meet a new climb­ing crew (go blog pow­er!) and have a bush-whack­ing back­track adven­ture before get­ting to the pret­ty, pret­ty routes. Karen has a pow­er lead day, albeit on noth­ing hard­er than prob­a­bly a 10b, but still has a great day on lead even through anoth­er blaz­ing hot day prob­a­bly over 30ºC. I was just sav­ing those three...

(Pre-)Local Crag Sunday (Issue #5a)

In which it real­ly is just too hot to climb prop­er­ly, but Sarah and I have a great time bik­ing our way out to the local crag and near­ly kill Bil­lie the dog. Bil­lie is a troop­er though, and recov­ers while Sarah and I suf­fer through a few routes. All is well though, and real­ly we were just sav­ing our strength...
Local Crag Sunday (Issue #4)

Local Crag Sunday (Issue #4)

In which Sarah and I get up ear­ly to meet our ride to the not-so-local, but very nice-for-a-change crag, Bil­lie romps and holds her own with a host of oth­er dogs and dis­cov­ers the joy of tuna-water*, and Sarah and I redis­cov­er our love for the pure and sim­ple joy of top-rop­ing . * water poured into an...
Local Crag Sunday (Issue #2)

Local Crag Sunday (Issue #2)

In which Sarah and I spend the first hour look­ing for a stub­born­ly mis­placed Bil­lie, pay too much for a cab to the crag, and then watch as Karen some­how drops a draw from the wall as she is clip­ping in. Over­all, a fine Sun­day morn­ing, even if I did suf­fer a bit because I also climbed yes­ter­day :).
Local Crag Sunday (Issue #1)

Local Crag Sunday (Issue #1)

In which Sarah and I final­ly have a rope and gear, find our way with the bus to the clos­est local crag, and Sarah for­gets her har­ness and shoes but man­ages to bor­row one from fel­low climbers. Nev­er to be defeat­ed, we shall return for more! Stayed tuned for the future adven­tures of the dawn patrol.
