When Aaron found this boulder above, now labeled the Golf Ball Boulder, the rims surprised me beyond expectation. Solid bulbous sandstone on public land! Buried in a ravine and covered by trees the stone seems to have kept a higher water content and aged nicely with a fine coat of efflorescence. There are at least 3 problems navigating this thing. cHuck is see above here working the V-hard project.

Greg Seftick (aka Wildcat, El Doctoro Seftickko, Captain Coco Nuts, Gary Sieflick) doing what he loved. Skiing the Skillet Glacier on Mount Moran. One of the premier alpine ski descents in the US. He was always super humble. He'd say he wasn't that good of a skier because he lived in Minnesota, or West Virginia, or anywhere that didn't have real mountains, but I saw him ski many times and he was strong, smooth, and calculated. He could ski like a boss!!!
Weekends still feel weird without a phone call from him asking what huge route got climbed. Funny thing was, whenever he'd call most of the time I'd have to go to the bathroom so I'd have to call him back. Don't know why, maybe he just had good timing, every time it'd happen he'd just laugh...... miss him.

Aaron and I got out Saturday to an area on the rims I've been eying up. Rims bouldering is quite fickle. There's millions of boulders, but very few have good quality stone and sit on public land, and rarely do they group together to form an area. The Country Club area is one of those rare places. There's much more than these boulders and we're excited to explore some more.

Last Saturday a big crew (5 people + 3 pads + 1 drooling dog) pilled into the TenHarmsel Suby and zipped down to Cody to join Clint and Kerrek in an effort to get our steel fingers back. Much was sent but much more remains for later. I learned I need to drop some weight, work my finger strength, and get used to my new shoes. Given that I was falling off 5.10s on top rope last July all is not lost, but progress to get back to my pre anemic days has been slow.
