Barbaric Bavarian Bouldering

Veteran's day 2010 provided the last forseeable weekend for outdoor climbing until bishop land, so a posse traveled to central washington to check out the granite pebbles of Leavenworth, WA. Though we struck out with the weather (and attaining any sort of points), it was a fun weekend which ended up being far more socially entertaining than focused on climbing. Which was a-o-kay!













Here are some pictures Jesse took. Also, here's a link to more pretty pictures he takes. http://www.jessespaulding.com/Home.html














Kirsten on some of the most featured granite anywhere
























Fueled by PBR and "sending temps", Scott sends Resurrection

















We were graced with the presence of Mike "Maddog" Madison; former missoula rock crusher



























Our AWESOME cabin for the last night.



















Darkness falls quickly in PacificStandardTime. So drinking games of YAHTZEE obviously had to ensue.....


















....with shotgunning consequences. Here Emily contemplates shotgun number 4



















Kirsten getting after it...

























Chubby Bunny. Biggest send of the trip pour moi
