A Troika — Schussclimbenswim

We set up shop amidst stones too big to schuss at which point Christian realized he totally forgot to buy a crash pad. That sure made the bouldering more interesting.

We found something with a nice landing, and tooled around until our forearms hurt (10 minutes). Reach!

phew... finally to the top of the boulder

Within a few “sends” our forearms were screaming, and couldn’t be trusted for even the shortest high balls. To get some more exercise we set up some traverse routes to play around on.

    Get a lot of use out of the low rider bikini bottom?
    It’s cool though. I like the French cut style. ’80s all day.

    Supper geeking. We need an FIS I.T. department so I can get my computer functional again (and can then show off all the awesome snow that WA still has).
