I just got back from an awesome trip to Bishop and Yosemite! Bishop was a very humbling climbing experience. The sheer magnitude of the monstrous boulders scattered across the hillside was inspiring, yet at the same time very daunting. I got to see legendary giants like Grandpa and Grandma Peabody boulders, who stand like sentinels just around a rocky hillside towering above all that surround. (They’re over 50 feet tall!) Yosemite was a completely different experience than what I am used to. We ended up pulling off the side of the road in a random area, looking for untouched boulders to send. We ended up finding a big round boulder with slopey huecos that I had the pleasure of getting the First Ascent on. I called it “Movie Night.” This trip however wasn’t a climbing trip. It was a trip to spend time with good friends, to find new adventures, as well as revisit old ones. We all have different strengths and weaknesses, and we all learned something new about ourselves out there. But the most special moment for me was sharing my climbing passion with Justin and Adam, and showing how much of an art form it is.
