The Trip

Soooo how about some details? I won't bore you too much with my blabber, but overall the trip was amazing. I got to meet up with my friends Alex, Zach, Adam, Kenyan, Jeff, and Steve (from England! ...get better soon, seriously). We started the trip off right climbing at the Buttermilks, and nearly destroyed our skin for the entire week in one day. I forgot how sharp the stone is out there.

The next day we went to the Happy's and crushed, I was trying every classic I could get my hands on, and Kevin and Donny were both destroying! The third day we went to the Sads, and damn the sads are good. Everyone seemed to pick a project out of the sads, so we decided to rest the next day, and then come back.

The rest day was awesome, we went up to the green church hot springs and celebrated Saint Patty's day the right way, passing a Gatorade bottle full of whiskey around. Ian and Lisa are both really cool (kick ass on the mountains this season, and send Los Locos... that bitch), and I recommend that anyone going to Bishop look for them and try to make friends (their location will probably be in or around the ice caves).

The 5th day was back to the sads, to do our projects. They were crushed, and then new projects were tried... I did al the moves on beefcake and was really psyched to go back to do that thing. The 6th day we went back to the Buttermilks.... It was pretty hot on day 6, and not much went down. I tried Stained Glass, but came away with nothing but bruised tips to show for it (note: mega sharp and super classic).

We had planned on going back to the Buttermilks our last day, but super high winds kept us on the tablelands, so I went to go try Beefcake again. After falling from the last v2 move twice (bloody hell...), I decided that was all I had and went to try other things. The day ended really chill like, and everyone headed to Ian and Lisa's for a little Brat grilling and beer drinking.

Good times... great oldies. I always end up wishing I had more time to travel after a week long trip, but that's how it goes I guess.

Thanks to everyone who let us crash out, cook, and bombard your places.... you know who you are. Also, much thanks to Alex for letting us borrow pads.

Here's a little video of some of our sends caught on tape.
