After the last post covering the week spent up in the Palisades things have been hectic- a short trip up to Washington, an AMGA Alpine Course in the Tetons, and then right back to the Sierra.
The trips have been a lot of fun so far though- lots of rock guiding work and alpine rock, allowing me to use and figure out how to best integrate the new information gained through the alpine course into my own guiding.
Here are a couple of the trips as seen through the lens during the past month:
|The Tetons, from my camp at Shadow Mt. The weather was not super cooperative while the course was being held...|
|But we still managed to get some objectives done. Josh Jackson short ropes Ron Paproski on Disappointment Pk.|
|Now back to the Sierra, Alex and Sarah came up for an advanced rock and mountain skills camp.|
|Neil takes the lead up Crystal Crag|
|Rappelling off of alpine terrain as the thunder started booming!|
|Matt and Marty, looking stoked, somewhere mid route|
Now with a couple days off to relax and recalibrate, I get to look forward with more of the same! Whitney's East Butress, the Fishhook Arete on Russell, and local rock climbing are what I get to look forward over the next couple weeks.
