The First Boulders of Spring

This winter was the longest time I have spent without climbing on real rocks in years. The skiing was so good I convinced myself all the climbable granite would be snowed in and damp. We didn't even make the treck to the climbing gym in Missoula more then a couple times a month. Now with the days lengthening and the rocks drying off I've been feeling the itch again.

Saturday, with high temps predicted far into the mountains, we packed up the crash pads and headed out to some sunny south facing boulders just past the saloon in Lost Horse canyon. The steep featured granite was not impressed with our skiing fitness and we flailed a bit. It felt remarkably refreshing to struggle with a bit of stone again and I'm really looking forward to making regular visits to lost horse.

Groping Polished Granite
 We found a few steep endurance problems that will make great training and some polished cracks and aretes I look forward to working. Conditions were spring like in the best possible way: cool but not cold with plenty of sun. We found no ticks despite the guidebooks warnings.

Climbing the rocks and skiing is my fav past time. Whenever I am free, I and my friends go on trekking or skiing, just for fun purposes haha. Like last time, we all took Nursing dissertation editing and proofreading services UK natives prefer and went on a grand trip before stepping into professional life. I love your pics, reminded me of my good, old days!
