Climb, Ski, Surf, April 20-22

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.

Berkeley climbing, April 6

Natalie, Dylan, Cori and I went to brunch at Sunnyside Cafe in Albany, then went up into the hills to climb sharp rock at Cragmont, and boulder around at Indian Rock.

Post-work surfing, Apirl 2

Cori and I met at Linda Mar after work.  Unfortunately, the waves were horrible, but it was fun to paddle out.

A room with a nice view.

Our jury rigged way of attaching Justin's phone to the ceiling of the tent.

Santa Cruz, March 30-31

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.
