Diablo Canyon Dylan Finishes Onsight of Class Act (5.10****)

On May 25th, we woke up, and had breakfast. Everybody packed up their items, and there was a search for sleeping bag bags. Since we were all camped out in the condo, several bags got misplaced. It was amusing. (more…)

Clare & Dennis at Pullout for Diablo Canyon
On May 24th, we got up and headed out for Diablo Canyon. We left for the crag in two cars, here’s to carpooling! Ann, Dylan, Kate, Mark, and Olivia piled into one Subi while Doug, Zack, Dennis & I piled into another. In about 30 minutes, we were off pavement and winding around gravel corners on the way to the canyon. (more…)

Tres Piedras, NM…Rained Out

Saturday, May 23rd, 2009

On May 23rd, we all woke up early. The sun was out for the time being, and everybody seemed hopefull for climbing. Breakfast was served, with a side of thought provoking conversation (What can I say, I love this group!). Chitter chatter covered a variety of topics-including favorite recent books read, inlaws, and camping gear.

Note: Dennis & I were especially fond of Doug’s Coleman folding table with a rolled metal top. Super cool!

When our Nuvi was counting down the distance to the final turn, I was saying in unison, “Turn Right in 1 mile, Turn Right in 300 feet, etc.”.

We went out for dinner at a local brewary, Second Street Brewery and caught up on events of the past year.

I had a beer sampler (highly recommended for those who can’t make up their mind!) to accompany my Portabella Grilled Sandwhich! Beer samplers are also a good idea for me, because Dennis usually ends up drinking all the hoppy stuff. So, I can concentrate on the lighter varieties.

Back at the condo, later that night, Dennis & I pulled out the futon couch and bunked down
