Day Trip to Alabama Hills

With the sun setting later in the day, the start of day trips to local crags with good friends was inevitable.  So since I climbed trad the weekend before in Joshua Tree NP, I decided to try to talk some folks into a day trip to Alabama Hills to climb fun sport routes.  After some emails, I was able to get Garrett, Seth, Jen, and Justin to commit to a fun day trip.  So we piled into my lovely Accord and headed up north.

We all go on some fun climbs and Garrett, Seth, and I all got in our first leads of the 2009 year!

After 8 climbs, my hands were thrashed, so I climbed half way up a route and took some pictures of Justin sending a 5.11a.


All in all, super fun day!  Was nice hanging out and getting some climbs in.  Felt like old times since Justin was in town!
