    Pacific Coast 2008

    I finally managed to put together most of trip story and photos from over a year ago. I would really appreciate any feedback on the whole thing. Negative criticisms are helpful.

    Now I just need to write up a story about this summer's Vodka tour.

    Yikes! Only read the first paragraph so far, but it makes my palms sweat. On some route right next to Jungle Mountaineering we pulled a loose rock with the rap pull, my partner was moderately injured. Really don't want to climb the low-angle stuff at EPC. Bad memory.

    That story actually happened off of the back of Dope Ninja, near the top of Snot Girlz where there is no route to climb, just a lot of cactus and an overhang. We did get down alright, but not until after midnight.

    Great story. Reminds me a lot of stories about thru hikers on the appalachian trail from GA to Maine. its a four or five month trip and people always seem to group up in these informal groups and become great friends.
