OH YEEEEAH!!! I just sent one of my summer long projects on Mount Yamnuska this evening during the final hours of daylight, on my VERY last day of the season. Tomorrow it’s supposed to snow and Friday we’re off to California. What a day!!! Thank you Gery Unterasinger (one of the strongest and most inspiring climbers/skiers/overall mountain crushers I’ve ever met) for partnering up with me today. I couldn’t have done it without you. “Blue Jeans Direct”, 8 pitches, 5.14a. So Stoked! It’s Miller time.
