So the weekend came and went without a whole lot of excitement. Here are a few things I learned...
1 - Eggnuts is strong. He did Bagatelle and then promptly came over to Beautiful Soup and almost sent the rig with the good betas. It'll happen soon bud. He also gave me two bumper stickers that said "What Would Steve Dew?". Apparently he put one on Rhoad's jeep. Awesome.
2 - White Whiskey is not bad at all. I'd go as far as saying it's downright tasty even. Well done Death's Door. Well done. Go here.
3 - The Jewel boulder is absolutely hands down one of the most badass talus boulders I've seen at the lake. Good fucking find Rhoads. I look forward to climbing on its bountiful jugs. There is a bit of bird poop on the top but that is NO reason not to climb on this thing. It is rad in every sense of the word and the whole area up there could be one of the premier moderate areas at the lake with a bit of work. I look forward to developing it soon.
4 - The East Bluff has a lot of potential for new stuff. I did not see anything standard setting but we saw so much rock that there has to be good stuff stowed away in there.
5 - Dodge has some fucking horrifying spiders. God damn.
6 - Alpine Bouldering Club is not a summer destination. After a fucking death slog up to the boulder RV promptly punted off of the topout on his first go. In the process he knocked down one of the aforementioned spiders and we all stared in awe. I am wholly convinced that they are the reason for the extinction of the dinosaurs. 100%. RV promptly sent soon after and we got the hell out of there.
7 - Grounded For Life is still one of my favorites at Dodge. That said, yet another terrifying spider was hiding in one of the pockets and I'm sure that it could eat me whole....one bite. Gone. Katie quickly repeated GFL and we moved on from that spider infested hellhole.
8 - Running fucking sucks. A lot. I ran 2 miles yesterday and wanted to die.
That is all. There will be more pictures tomorrow but I have to leave here so this is all you get. Such a cool boulder and RV gives it some perspective.
