White Water Bouldering

Average Rating = 3.50/5 White Water Bouldering

Just west of Evolution Valley on the JMT is Goddard Creek. My friends and I discovered this awsome slot in the creek 15+ feet deep with featured overhanging walls. A class 3 rapid pours into the slot creating a deep fast moving pool of white water. We first tested out the pool by cautiously jumping, then diving deeper and deeper. None of us touched the bottom. Traversing barefoot down on both sides of the slot, we found numerous problems with large juggs and steep moves, most of which were dry. And when you slip, icecold water and a quick swim into an eddy. Here is a picture my friend Peter took of me on one of the most amusing problems (maybe V3).

Climbing with Clouds

Average Rating = 3.38/5 Climbing with Clouds

My friend Eric and I were climbing Skyline, and noticed these cool clouds floating over us. I rapped down and grabbed the camera to take this pic. I think it turned out pretty well, but I couldn't decide what orientation looked the best. Leave me some feedback... Thanks

Swinging at the Beach

Average Rating = 2.60/5 Swinging at the Beach

Here is a cool pic of my friend Eric loosing his feet on a fun V2 at LJB. We named this problem Almost Porno due to some girls posing for photos at the beach while we did the FA. I was mezmorized by these awsome sediment layers in the sandstone, so took this pic looking down the lines.

This is my friend Chris leading the first 165ft pitch of leonids, a fun moderate angle 5.9. As you can see that hes just passing the 100ft marker. Talk about rope drag...

Offwidth Sunset

Average Rating = 2.57/5 Offwidth Sunset

This is me trying to work my way out of this narrowing chimney. I found myself stuck in a uncomfortable position, so if your tall like me I advise leaving the chimney earlier. Too bad this pic was taken with a flash because the colors were intense.

Finishing the Crux

Average Rating = 2.60/5 Finishing the Crux

I found this climb on a hand drawn guide and decided to try it. Start with an easy face climb, and then traverses accross this overhanging bolder. From there its all hard pumpy moves. Here is a pic of me pulling over the top.
