The Desert

Every so often we manage to migrate East to the divide and to climb with the Montana Bouldering crew.  The generally sunny cold days filled with fires and beers are quite inviting and the company is top notch.  I worked my way over there a few weekends ago for a quick day on the granite of the Boulder Batholith.  A couple noteworthy sends went down and I took a few photos.

I got some video of the crimp problem pictured above being sent by Pat Odenbeck for the FA.  I will put it up in the next day or so.  Weather looks good for the Batholith this weekend.  I think another trip is in order.
