Big Chief South Buttress

Ann and I meet Wes in Truckee, hoping for cooler temperatures at Big Chief. It’s just about right, even climbing in the sun. The blooming bitterbrush smells like cinnamon and a breeze ruffles the ponderosas. Climbing season is definitely open!

  1. wow. that first pic is beaut. those colors, shadows, light. like a magazine ad quality to it.

    but your form is bad. you are pulling in with the left arm and s/b hanging ’til you are ready to make the clip.
