|Leading up Vacavillian (10b? 10b/c? 10d? 11a?) It felt tough for 10b, that is for sure.|

Cori, Ben, and I went to Auburn to climb. I haven't climbed with Ben for a long time, which is weird considering we climbed several times a week for years, including trips to Mexico, Spain, Italy, and a variety of US destinations.

|There is great limestone sport climbing in Auburn.|
|I couldn't believe I found a cherimoya in the Auburn Raley's!|
|Things were looking thin at Alpine Meadows.|
|After a beautiful and warm start to the day, the weather turned foggy and cold.|

I had never camped and surfed before this weekend, and I can't wait to do it again. Climbing is to Yosemite as Surfing is to Santa Cruz here in California, so it was nice to bring my shitty epoxy board out on some really nice waves. I managed to catch some good waves on Saturday at The Hook, and even got a few on Cori's more aggressive 7'6" board. Sunday wasn't as successful as a bigger swell and nice weather brought crowds to Pleasure Point. Along with a nice clean swell came crowds of obnoxious teenagers, but they mostly stayed out of our way, except Cori got her board run over by a little punk. I was bummed after leaving the water, but am excited to get back down there again.
