I’ve been on a roll. No depression for several weeks. Today though, is shitty. Had a buddy of mine from Yellowstone bail on me without bothering to even call. So I missed out on some great climbing by waiting around for him. Then the kicker was seeing a former roommate/good friend at a gas station today. We saw eachother from far enough away that he managed to drive off before I could say hi. The whole reason I came out here was to climb with him and some other buddies I met last year. But I ended up driving two thousand miles to be excluded from their fun all summer. I honestly don’t know if I’m gonna hit my deadline at this point. Sometimes it seems like 2017 can’t come soon enough.

Here’s to smoking for the first time since January.
I can not get this image out of my head. An absolutely gorgeous woman who shares her name with my mother and my guitar idol, drinking cheap wine and humming along to The Shins while we talk about our future travels. I learned recently that I’m the one that fuckin my chances. I was a huge dick that week to some people. Those people were her friends. God damn I don’t think I’ll get over this tatted up girl who loves astronomy, weed and good music.
A garbage bag, rope, few gallons of water, and a car heater gives you a hot shower in the clouds, 8500’ above the sea.

How does one go about sleeping with the cute Brazilian girl at McDonalds?

I’m seriously considering doing this before I leave. The CMC face reaches 5.4 a few times which I’m comfortable free soloing. Hell I’ve done 5.9. Problem is I’ve never soloed anything so high. Its doable though. Just the though “you slip, you die” is pretty powerful.
Buuut there’s a glacial route on the other side that has a plane crash that’s been undisturbed for decades. I have no experience in that type of climbing, but seeing that crash would be cool. Maybe that’s not good of me to think. There’s like seven dead kids and several adults up there, but that’s reality you know? I’m a climber who wants to be a pilot and I feel like everybody could use a dose of reality. Maybe I’m losing it out here, idk.
Did ten miles today to bag this one. I’m pooped y’all.
