After spending a little time in San Francisco, we’ve decided to move on to the areas around Lake Tahoe. The climbing at Castle Rock was cool, but the heat was unbearable. The rock was top notch, much like the southern sandstone I grew up climbing on. After spending about an hour there climbing the moderates, we decided it was to hot and packed up.

The Tahoe area is beautiful. Joe is really psyched to climb Steep Climb Named Desire at Donner Summit. We’ll let you know how that goes. A friend also told us about some great areas near the lake, so the plan is to check that out in a few days.

Chris is up in Humboldt working on a new sport climb he just found and bolted. It’s right on the beach, steep, and spectacular. Hopefully he’ll do it in a few days…
