Birthday Weekend: Act I
I was so high on my 37th birthday this year.
Shortly after finishing my work day, I threw my gear into my pack and began my escape from the recent soggy entrapment in Portland. I picked up my friend, Jordan, and headed east to some of the best multi-pitch exposure in which I've been able to partake. Great way to kick off a great birthday weekend and get reacquainted with vitamin-d.
We got into Smith around 11pm and set up camp. After several weeks of trudging through gray and soggy days, I was overjoyed to drive into a completely different climate. It's been an extra long winter (as everyone has informed me), but it hasn't seemed quite so rough until the past couple weeks.
