Spring Bouldering

The Bishop season is long gone and the crowds of tourists flooding Yosemite are a sure sign that cool Valley days are winding down. The last month has been a haze of graveyard shifts at the synchrotron and climbing whenever spare time arose. Partly by design to gain more power before old age settles in and partly from a lack of climbing partners, I’ve done more bouldering since arriving in the Bay than ever before. Lately I’ve had a great time getting out with new friends both on the ropes and hauling crash pads between the miniature meccas. Some of my favorite days of the year came bouldering in Yosemite. Like any other season, some lines went down while others remain as motivation to return on the other side of summer. Enjoy some photos from a few spring sessions.
