I just spent the last week hanging out and climbing with my old friend Bonnie DeBruijn, who I met in Yosemite seven years ago, and her friend Mariah, from North Carolina. We had a marvelous time. We climbed in Index one day, hung out all day in Seattle the second day, and then climbed in Leavenworth for two days. We spent one day cragging, and another climbing an amazing route called Outer Space--a perfect, 5.9 splitter hand/finger crack. Bonnie and I split up the leads and Mariah, being less experienced, just came along for the ride. The week was enjoyable. We also spent some time with my friend Tim Matsui, who generously allowed us to crash at his house.
Here are some photos from the trip.
