Back Home

I just got back the other night from a great 20 day trip to California! The weather was warm, but where is it not in the United States right now? Ive begun to understand that there is really no escaping the summer anymore and the easiest thing to do is just deal with the heat because Autumn will be here soon enough.

So, the trip! It was really good, climbed at the areas of Donner Summit, The Tramway, and Mt. Baldy. The climbing out in So Cal should definitely not be put off by the avid boulderer. The Tramway is absolutely amazing granite and the rock seems to be endless! Mt. Baldy is an amazing area as well with beautiful river polished boulders on the side of a now stream that keeps the forest cool during the day. And Donner, though not in So Cal, is amaing as well, yet another place in this country with impeccable granite. Here are some pictures from the trip!

I am now back home in NJ for one more week before I head back to Colorado for another year! Should be fun! There are a lot of boulder problems that I am very psyched to get on (Ode, Jade, Suspension, and a few others)!!! Now I just have to keep on training for them and the big comp coming up ina few weeks at the OR Show in Salt Lake City.

Really cool photos Paul. I really dig the standing on a head of a dragon one. Looks like a sick boulder problem.

Paul,
Thanks for the beta, I found Dragon's head. What an amazing climb. Glad to hear you had a good time in Southern California. Talk to you soon.
