They don't call it mailbox peak for nothing. 3800' of elevation gain in 2.5 miles is great training for those long stairstepper sessions at the gym.
Bryan sticks it to the Shield. Or does he? Another good weekend of no hard sends in Leavenworth, probably the last before summer.
Good for the soul. Hub red, beer, fire and camera.
I guess he was the only one climbing this weekend.
Who crushes 5.6? We do, as long as the approach isn't too difficult.
Watch out for the bears.
Too hot to climb? Slackline by the beach and then eat a cheeseburger.
As consolation I may have put up a first ascent up on at the Pretty Boulders. You never know in a place like this, but we had to move a big dead tree and do some excavating to get it clean, so maybe. Anyway, it faces 'Pretty Hate Machine' and we called it 'Pretty Dick Swab.' I thought it was really fun, Hopefully it stays clean.
