I spent the longest days of this year working in an integrated pest management lab, packpacking and occasionally climbing around the sierras, and moving into a sweet new place with four rad girls. I can’t complain.

May came back from Japan. Yeah!

Matty and Jared are rad music-playing fiends who are about to make the East Bay even more awesome by moving up here.

I visited Patrick. We hiked for miles to an eagle’s eye view.

Friends by the fire after a long day.

Sometimes solo hikes are the best hikes.

Went climbing with some berkeley bros…

Granite makes the weirdest textures sometimes.

Anson led all the climbs cos he’s the most larn’d in the ways of leading.

Knots are as vital to climbers as they are to sailors.

What a perfect day.
