//The Moment of Truth// This is when you remove your personal anchor. This is when your heart pounds. This is when you triple check every locking carabiner and make sure it is indeed locked. This is when you take a deep breath and lean back. This is the rappel!

Is there anything better than catching your own fish in the wilderness, cooking it over a campfire and enjoying it under a wide open sky of stars?
Thank you, @wetflyfish, for giving the opportunity to experience such freedom & accomplishment to the BCM youth.
“She loved the sea.
She loved the sharp
salty smell of the air,
and the vastness
of the horizons
bounded only by a vault
of azure sky above.
It made her feel small
but free as well.” -George R. R. Martin
First experience seeing the ocean was truly breathtaking, especially during the sunrise.
It's supposed to be in the 90s today in San Diego. Here's a photo of fall in the eastern Sierras from this weekend to make it a bit more tolerable. I may just have to go back to escape the heat...90 in October, wtf??
//The Hand 👏// Our route involved 3 pitches on the Razor's Edge route. The start is towards the thumb and the top out near the index finger. Zoom in for climbers on the 2nd pitch (aka Chicken Ledge-where we were basically straddling the rock) and on the 3rd pitch. The cave towards the bottom right gave us a free rappel on the way down.

Of course not. We never are. But that’s not the right question. The question is are we living a life that is worth the harm?” - Welcome to Night Vale; Episode 46 - Parade Day
