LA Day Trip, Oct 25

Yesterday started at 5:30am, and ended at 11:00pm.  Our entire company flew to LA for a big meeting.  It was fun, but a total whirlwind.

Send Day, Oct 20

Chris, Nick, and I went back to Indian Rock today.  I sent my project Flake Traverse (v3), and Chris immediately sent The Bubble (v5) on the next attempt!  We were hoping for the triple, but Nick couldn't get the traverse.  We tried Center Overhang (v3), which has a big top move.  We all fell from around there, I never committed to it, but maybe next time.

Mini Bay Area Bouldering Circuit, Oct 13

Chris, Nick, and I met Reuben at Ring Mountain, where we got a couple of nice climbs in, including a v2 (Green Face) I hadn't done before.  Reuben left, and we went to Berkeley to hang out at Indian Rock.  It was quite crowded there, with many locals easily jaunting up the problems.  I have wanted to try a v3 flake there for some time, and I got half of the crux, so I'm excited to go back and give it a try again!  Chris sent that v3, and worked on the v5 variation.

Fall Colors, October 5

My Mom and I went upstream on the Concord river.  This was the first time I have seen good fall foliage since moving to California over 5 years ago.  It certainly wasn't peak, but it was beautiful and the water was calm.

We ate at the North Bridge where a bee snuck into my water bottle and stung me on the lip.  Stupid bees going in for an unwanted kiss.  Seriously, no one likes you.

The Ultimate San Francisco Weekend

I won't be here, which is somewhat bitter sweet.  I'm in a wedding for a very good friend who get married in the Boston area, and I am in desperate need of some time away from the madness that has been my schedule in SF.  For those in the city, this weekend has Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Fleet Week, America's Cup, Decompression, an assortment of concerts, two Giants playoff games, a 49'ers home game, and two neighborhood parties.  I'm sure it will be epic!
