TCF x Yosemite
Here I am after grunting my way up a 5.10b. We got up at 5 am, drove to the Valley, and were on the wall by 10 am. You can tell by the beer can nearby that I thought this was my last climb of the day. However, my bud came up with the idea of climbing Swan Slabs by the light of a full moon.
We graced the top of the climb with a couple more IPAs. I looked out over this Valley that I have come to love so much and saw the light of the moon dissipated by a weird haze somehow making the light brighter. Half Dome was big, bold, and beautiful. I sat with three friends and together we teased, laughed, and made plans for our future. We felt bad and a little scared for the tiny lights descending Royal Arches knowing that their night was just beginning. It felt odd to think that those folks were having the shittiest day in their memory as we were toasting to one of the best days in ours.

Got cleaned up for an amazing wedding at Tomalis Bay State Park, CA.

What were you doing when you were 6? Probably not rocking a 3 piece suit like a fucking boss. Note the pin on the lapel. That is my Trinity United Methodist Church pin because I was on my way to be a minister, obviously.
This is apparently what happens while waiting for friends and drinking beers after a long day of climbing in Tuolomne.
My friend Jill snapped this of me.
Stoked on my new American Optics.

Went to see The Last Waltz Tribute at The Warfield the other night. The show was amazing even if we hit the bourbon a little too hard prior to the music.
Rocked this old Open Road and met a girl in a shiny dress.
