Good as Gold

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks in Gold Bar. The forest has finally started to really dry out. Joel, Drew, Cole, Cortney, Carlyn and I returned to the forest with "beginners eyes" and found some amazing new climbs scattered among existing classics. We also tried some existing problems with some success: Drew came close on Johnny's futuristic Gorilla's Nest, Cole sent the Bearded Lady, and I managed to climb Jamrock, my summer-of-2006-nemesis, after a five-year hiatus. Here are some photos...

In other news, I graduated from law school on Sunday! Good job me!

The good news is that three years of stress, hard work, and interaction with a generally obnoxious environment are behind me. The bad news is that I will be spending the next six weeks studying for the bar exam, which is even more stressful and time-consuming... But this in turn has a silver lining: I have been amassing some nice footage that I won't be able to edit this summer, so I should be able to put together a longer video this fall. More on that later...
