Nice Palisades shot

Great photo Misha! Good job on Temple Crag and Sill. That VB Arete is a fun climb, isn't it?

Re: Nice Palisades shot

Hey bud, thanks for the comment! VB was great, especially its exposed upper reaches (gotta love that ~4' step over the gap). We actually managed to get offroute into 5.10+ terrain early on, and after messing around there for close to 3 hours backtracked, found the route and finished the job. I can't wait to give Sun Ribbon Arete a try. When are you coming back to our neck of the woods? We should hang out

Re: Nice Palisades shot

Definitely! I will actually be in Yosemite this weekend with my GF, but probably not climbing. I'd love to get down to the Sierras again - I'll let you know!
