Ben, Tanya, Matt and I headed to LW this past weekend. It wasn't much of a trip plan, just a "who wants to come, ok, come, great" and it all worked out lovely.

Ben and Tanya are great. I haven't met anyone as positive and smiley and happy and sweet as Tanya in too too long. It was great to have that energy with us all weekend. I might join the kayaking club just to hand out with Tanya more :) And Ben is an understated badass. Too few of those around as well :)

I don't think we really expected to climb all that much on Sat since the weather was iffy, but it held all day. I'm still recovering for a bunch of injuries, so I still took it easy, but Ben cranked on some hard stuff on Saturday...

We went to Domestic Dome (I think that's what it's called - it's just by Barney's Rubble) since we were camping at the not very secret not very legal camping right there in the parking lot on Fri/Sat nights. Tanya started us off on the tricky slabby 5.6 (sorry I don't remember any of the names now - book is at home). I can't beleive she just started climbing- she looks super solid. I led it next and admit that a few times I paused to think about the moves (I have a hard time trusting new belayers, and the wet mossy slime I grabbed at one point didn't help either!). Ben then led the 5.8/5.9 slab to the right of it, a much funner and more interesting climb. We then got on some more short (but had you thinking!) 5.8/5.9 slabs and Ben TR'd the 11a off the same anchor. I tried the 11a, but got stuck. I guess 5 months off climbing leaves you weaker than you think you are :(

On sunday we went to the Duty Dome area. Matt & I climbed together and Tanya and Ben got their trad leading on. We all had fantastic days and unbenknownst to me at the time, I turned into a lobster it was so sunny out! I started on Straight Street, a 3* classic 5.9 for good reason - it was super fun! Although slabs are not my forte, it was good to get more practice in. And the climb was super varied - a little slab, a little corner, a little lie-backing, and an undercling or two. FUN! I then led another 5.7 slab just to the right of SS (I dont' get how they rate slabs, it felt just as hard as the 5.9), which led us to a really fun 5.9 little roof with great pro. I think it was the first time I did a heel hook so far above my gear (which wasn't all that far, but probably still could have landed me on a ledge had I really messed up). The climbing above that was really dirty (I had to clean out a crack to place gear, and dug my way into an ant farm - think ants crawling up your arm, into your crack gloves, and ow! biting as you climbed above). luckily the anchor and relief from the ants were near! We then topped out via a more circuitous route, as the regular route was super mossy and slippery.

I'll let Ben and/or Tanya write about their Sunday.

Anyways, thanks for coming Ben and Tanya! You're welcome to join me again any time!

Am hoping to do something July 4 weekend...any takers??

Photos to come in the nearish future...I hope

Oh ya! I waved at you guys in the Safeway parking lot...but I was wearing a red hat and it was dark so you probably didn't recognize me.
