Back on Saturday the hope was for a day of good bouldering on good, warm, sunny rock that was long overdue. All hope was met with fulfillment and a day was made that was so warm I heard a local suggest that spring thaw was starting. Suggesting that spring thaw had begun was true hope or maybe despair. Sunday night the temperatures started to fall. The bottom fell out this early morning and now memories of sun warmed rock keep me going till the next "spring thaw".
Anyway, Saturday morning, eight in the morning (the usual time) Guili Zavaschi, our newest crew member Dylan Stowers and myself loaded the jeep without needing gloves and drove to the local boulders of Gneiss and Granite that we have been developing for a few seasons now. If the description of Gneiss and Granite sounds a bit vague it is because we have all been sworn to secrecy by the areas daddy. This was our first dead of winter trip the particular boulders we visited and it was amazing. Not even climbing that much, but enjoying the sun was what really sank the experience into the body. Staying close to the road we cleaned and tried a few new lines only completing the warm up, now called A Wife For Guili V1.
