Sometimes the word "epic" is used as a noun instead of an adjective. On Memorial day I climbed my first route in Yosemite National park. The route was Snake Dike on the iconic monolith Half Dome. It was definitely my greatest epic.
Just 40 minutes off the beaten path of Los Angeles sits Texas Canyon. This beautiful part of the high desert consists of a collection of large sandstone conglomerate domes, isolated rock formations, and boulders. We set out for some friendly climbs and doubled it up with some time to photograph new products for the Forever Outside store.
March 6, 2015 we entered the Eastern Sierrra. A short backpack hike up the closed road lead us to our first night's destination. We set up a quick camp and set off for a night hike to Lake Sabrina. The hike was fun, but almost mandatory to restore some feeling in our toes, it was surley below freezing.
Huge moment in rock climbing this weekend. February 28th, 2015 I sent my first trad lead in Joshua Tree National Park. The route is called "Jane Crowley" a 5.8 hand crack with a nice layback crux. Forecast was predicted to be a chance of high winds and rain, but Mother Nature blessed us with clear skies and a calm breeze.
