Lizzy Boulders!

Last time I tried to post a bunch of photos I ended up talking too much. I’ll try to keep this simple.  The weekend before Thanksgiving we met up with some of my high school friends, Jamie and Hartley, in Bishop. We did a bunch of bouldering and had a blast before going to Seattle for turkey! We spent Day 1 at the Sads, Day 2 at various out-lying  Buttermilk areas and Day 3 at the Happys. Lizzy really stepped it up this trip and took some amazing photos! Enjoy!

Sending  Atari is quite the experience and Jamie and Spencer are happy to have made it.

Jamie reaches!

Our time in Bishop was very fun. My fitness was a bit lower than I would have liked due to lots of endurance training. While I didn’t send anything hard I experineced a bunch of new problems and gained motivation to start bouldering more.
