Happy March

Well the weekend was pretty good.

On Saturday I made itout to Ponderosa with Chris and Danny to do some bouldering. Chris and I both managed to repeat a Jon Cardwell problem, Soft Fluffy Bunnies V8/9, named for the images Jon tried to carry in his head to not be intimidated by the two tiered landing.

Here is a sot of Chris on the start of the problem, the straight up from where he is is a good V6

Here is a shot of me starting the upper postion of the problem. This is one of the best lines at Ponderosa, about 20 feet long and really good movement.

On Sunday the family made it out to Wite Rock and the Playground. Dylam had a blast playing in the dirt at the base of the wall while mom and dad climbed with Betty. Linda and Betty both managed to do Unrelenting Nines on their first try on top-rope. Unrelenting is a great slightly overhung route, very steep for Wite Rock, and one of the harder classic lines starting with big moves on jugs then a steep finger crack to some face climbing at the top.

Last here is a photo of Dylan that I took last early last month that I think is kind of funny.

Dylan is all about Ball-ball and has been for a month or more, so this is the sports section which for some reason always has an image or two of a basketball on the cover.

Hope everyones March got off to a great start over the weekend.


  1. Yes! First comment ever!

    Dylan already looks smarter than you. Nice.

    That problem looks wicked cool, and also way harder than I could possibly do. I don't think my middling V-5 in the gym abilities transfer well to actual rock these days. Nice work, and some sweet shots!

  2. Im glad to see he is reading the sports section not the doom and gloom!
