Life happens sometimes, and you lose track of things, and I just kept telling myself I'd get to it, but I haven't, so here I am three and a half months later. I think part of the reason I didn't post is because I didn't feel like I knew what to write about. We had expectations in our head of our first big wall summit and first overnight, but events conspired against us. Don't get me wrong, we had an absolutely amazing trip to Yosemite, but in the context of this blog and climbing it felt a bit anticlimactic.
Yosemite is an awe-inspiring place. Our first glimpse of The Valley we knew from the photographs was at sunset, as we pulled into the park on the evening of May 1st. After passing a few towers that we couldn't identify without a guidebook, El Capitan suddenly loomed ahead of us. It's really just hard to believe.
