heading home

I am leaving squamish empty handed this time. I did manage the ascent of a few nice boulders however was unable to nab the second ascent of dreamcatcher due to the extreme heat that as the locals say, "has not been this bad since 1880." Spirits are high though as alex and i make our trek back to Boulder. I will be back in October with lots of endurance and lots of psyche in hopes of coming back and sending! It is going to be a short trip because of school but i am already so excited to return to the magical forest. I am in love with the climb and know i will think about it everyday until i return!

I start school on the 24th and have an art show on the 3rd which i have a great deal of work to prepare for. But most importantly i have projects in colorado to get back for and lots of training to be done! I am psyched and hopefully will be able to finish up some old lines and open some new ones this upcoming Fall!

I know what you mean about the heat up there !! I admire that even at your level, you juggle school, imperfect conditions, projects, and time deadlines.

I did manage a couple sends while up in squamish: if you've got a moment, check out one of my sends:

Paul! Glad to hear you fell in love with the catcher as I did. It's freakin tough though, huh? That's rad that you made some links, but too bad about the weather... hottest season since the 80s? As if that route wasn't already hard enough in the summer? Christ.

Hey, so I saw on the 8a you did an fa of 'simone says'? where's that? Lost rocks or moonstone? Just curious what your beach adventure was like. Good luck starting school again... ugh.
