There is always an excuse.  I’m too busy, or lazy, or the weather is bad, etc.  This day was awesome for me because it made me feel like I was taking back my life from all the excuses.  Rock on… ~Eli

Emily - Can’t tell you how nostalgic your photos made me feel. I miss the mountains and rock climbing and eldo. Thanks for the post and it seemed like a fantastic day! What beautiful, fluffy snow flakes!!!! What was the temperature?November 12, 2012 – 6:42 am

Eli - Hey Emily,
Glad you enjoyed it. I really tried to take this photos from a first hand perspective, like you’re the one there. It was pretty nice (maybe 50 degrees) at the start of the day, and got progressively colder. When we hiked out, my hands were going numb in the open air.November 12, 2012 – 7:57 am

Adam Scheer - Thanks, Eli.

I felt like I was there. Man would I love to spend a couple sunny winter hours climbing the roof routes. Seeing the rock there brings back so many memories. I know exactly how it feels, smells, sounds being right there.

I’m glad you guys stuck it out for a good day.November 12, 2012 – 11:00 pm

Andrew - Wish I could have been there with you guys. The snow looks like it was fun to experience! Eli, it’s good to hear things are falling into place.

By the way, I like the new look on Climbinghouse.November 12, 2012 – 11:08 pm

Kris Scheer - Loved the story , great pictures…. no dialogue required.November 13, 2012 – 9:40 pm

Lizzle - I like the new format, Eli! One thing though that I miss about the old format is knowing who is the writer of the post at the top. Could you add that back in?

Great photos & I’m glad to hear you’re not letting those excuses run your life!November 15, 2012 – 9:55 pm
