•••• Vitamin M Toprope 5.11cSportG
Camping here was much better than at Jacks! Pretty much no wind, and I was pooped enough that the howling hounds didn't bother me. We all set up camp and then settled down for dinner and mallows around the campfire. It was a really enjoyable night getting to know people and talking about hikes we'd all done or were planning to do. Hit the sack early and slept well because my tent wasn't bashing me in the head every ten minutes!

Breakfast was equally enjoyable. Sausage, bacon, eggs, and blueberry walnut pancakes! How can you go wrong? We scouted out for the trail to Iso and then went on our way. The hike out there is nice -- great views and fun terrain. It was hard to follow the trail at times but fun boulder hopping and scrambling on the route. It ended up being fairly windy down there though, and though the sky was a beautiful blue, the sun hid behind the largest clouds almost constantly.

I ended up hopping on Vitamin M, though it's well above my skill level. I love the challenge though, and took my time trying to feel for the best routes and trying out the beta from others. Didn't finish it completely, but I'm happy with where I got and definitely surprised myself on how far I actually made it. Took the rest of my time down there watching others alternately struggle or breeze up the same route. Very cool experience.

Upon arrival at the car, I dove into the cooler and pretty much finished off the contents. Think I ended up eating about 3500 calories that day between the big breakfast, huge lunch, billions of snacks in between, and the kabob at the end of the night that was the size of my drumstick. Not to mention the 2.5 glorious pieces of AJ's pie I helped polish off later on. Climbing takes a lot outta ya!

Great weekend, had tons of fun, and can't wait to do it again! :y:
