Yosemite Valley

Just to get some pictures up of climbing in the Valley, I'm throwing one more blog post in here with what we've been up to this week. We've been staying at Camp 4, the traditional climber's campground and getting in as much climbing in Yosemite Valley as possible before the weather becomes too hot to bear.
So far we've hit up a bunch of multi-pitch on routes around the area, and highlights include the Nutcracker route on Manure Pile Dome (that's seriously the name) and The Grak- a beautiful splitter hands up the side of Glacier Point Apron.
See Scott bear-hugging part of the route?
See me bear-hugging a spicy traverse?
We had a "Minnesotans" barbacue last night in Camp 4 with friends,
and I was super psyched to check out the East Ledges on the side of El Capitan.
Everything here is so big and so amazing, and it seems like everywhere you turn there's something new and cool to look at.
I'm constantly dirty, always a little sore, and am having the time of my life.
Though he's currently napping (or snoozing) Scott agrees. :)
