Bishop, Week 1

When we got into Bishop, we were dreading that there was rain in the forecast.  When in fact, the clouds were a blessing, and the rains always came at the right time--when we were asleep.  We've been bouldering at the Buttermilks, but hope to check out the Happy and Sad Boulders in the weeks to come.

Enjoy some photos!

This is a big boulder--The Drifter Boulder.  High Plains Drifter, V7.  Buttermilks.

Setting up for the Drifter move...

Closer shot of the same move.  Slap to a slopey sidepull and once again to a small slimper.

There's that small slimper I was telling you about.

The topout goes on for a while, the downclimb comes down the V1 to the right in that crack.

Jedi Mind Tricks = scary.  V4.

Smooth operator.

First crux--big cross on a sloping hueco.  Ripped it!

Hardest V6 on the planet:  Saigon.
