Bryan Vansickle (aka Dr. Thunder) has been in town for the week on is seasonal pilgrimage to work in northern Wyoming. Trying to convince him to stay another week and finish some things up here is part of the motivation to post on the blog again. Last fall had us working on several harder problems in several areas in addition to finding several new areas we wanted to develop. When winter set in an unsatisfied feeling followed and the waiting game began. After waiting all winter to get back on things we finally have! Being a bit unfocused, we've only spent a day on each project, but progress from last season was made on each one! Now if Bryan will stay the week, we can actually finish some lines and satisfaction set in for the season.
Below are some random images from the past weeks.

|The New Cactus Project, Needle Peak, Wy. Bryan was very close to finishing this project and would be crazy to not stay the week to finish it!|
|Dr. Thunder on the FA of Triangle Man in the Finger Paint cave of Neverland. Lots of good steep roof climbing here!|
|The Triple X roof has a 6 foot drift under it now, which kills the first two moves, but allowed us to try the top out and high crux with a great landing. Now is the time to get on this thing and finish it!|
|With the deep snow behind the pads we were able to find good sequences through the roof. Now all that is left to do is the linkup. This will be a very hard line!|
