Climbing Big Chief
July 27, 2003
waking up in a meadow outside of Truckee
hiking to nearby Big Chief
picking a fun rock face
staying cool in the shade
there are maybe 10 climbers here today
[and all seem to have Mission Cliff belay pass]
[my camera has a lens cover problem]
figuring out the next move (movie file)
throw (movie file)
fast forward (movie file)
this is why you have a belay partner
Hang on...there must be a way...!
-Let me down.
higher and higher
35 meters later
the rope is 70m
[that lens cover again]
we hear a distant thunder storm
quite hot in the sun still
Jacques is at it again
proper climbing shoes would help
I guess that's one way of doing it.
sky's the limit
Somehow, Hannah got a bit bored...so she started taking photos of other things.
Hannah's up next
Jacques on the last climb, a short 5-11c.
almost there @ big chief
