Getting high

On Sunday I gained 7,000 vertical feet on a 14 mile climb of Whitehorse Mountain. Thursday I gained another 1,000 feet on a 20 mile bike ride. Saturday (today) I am climbing Mt. Hood. It must be summer in Seattle.

Happy Valentines Day

We celebrated Valentines Day on a rock wall. Several other climbers were jealous of my personal cheering squad as I scooted up the rock walls.

But I wasn’t the only one getting cheers. Once we discovered the right technique for her, Kayla had a lot of fun climbing up, and down, up and down the wall.

Tomorrow, there’s a good chance I’ll be wearing my crampons at the top of Mt. Si. It’s been a long time since they’ve been buckled to the bottom of a pair of boots.
