It's dark and cold in Yosemite so I've been staring at pictures of sunny places. A year ago, I hung out with @madeleine_cope @hazel_findlay and a crew of Brits. I told them the ENTIRE story of the Princess Bride over the course of a 2 hour campfire. Fun times. Maddy enjoying the sun here on a route at the Reservoir Wall

One of the best finger cracks in Yosemite, Cosmic Debris shoots a fierce line behind the Chapel. I've tried it for years. This fall, I'll stay ti I do it. I may not have talent but I have tenacity. Ashley Helms photo @lasportivana @fixehardware @patagonia @touchstoneclimbing

This past spring, @seanleary died in Zion National Park. I wrote about the search and recovery. Rock and Ice first published the story. I added it to my blog. Though sad, the writing is some of my best. Check the link in my profile to read the story or look at www.thewalkingmonkey.com
thervproject : Agreed. Great writing, James.
woodzzy14k : Great job on the article!
taranortlieb : Thanks for writing and sharing man i can't imagine it was easy.
arareko : missing him

Maddy takes down Meat at the Bridalveil boulders. It's been fun bouldering in the Valley lately. I keep getting sucked into staying longer. Maybe it's the rock. Maybe it's the friends. It's probably both. @madeleine_cope @touchstoneclimbing @fixehardware @lasportivana
posesmotter : #sopoetic tho
lynbarraza : Is Maddy still there??
james_lucas : @lynbarraza she's on El Cap

This evening, the leaves blew off the tree in the back of the meadow. Winter is coming.
gabyhawaii : @james_lucas Do you and your fellow Yosemites climb during the winter months?
danbookless : @1_98_5 I'm listening
james_lucas : @gabyhawaii yes. The days are short and cold. Most climbers switch to the boulders but El Cap remains good unless there's heavy snowfall
ryancappakelly : #phenology = study of the timing of yearly events in plants and animal...nice science james
bozbrad : @jakehilbrown one day
aud_bod : ๐Ÿ‘Œ
randyleavitt : @james_lucas those leaves look like canopies on my iPhone.
james_lucas : @randyleavitt one of them may be

@carlotraversi sticks the Force, one of Jerry Moffat's classic Camp 4 test pieces. Moffat took the name from an opening line in Michael Jackson's song Don't Stop Til You Get Enough. MJ sings, "you know the force, it's got a lot of power." @touchstoneclimbing @fixehardware #yosemitebouldering

aud_bod : @james_lucas I am no Lyn Barazza!
lynbarraza : @aud_bod Sadly, crimping as hard as ever still isn't hard enough!
lynbarraza : @bethrodden great job on the FA - still trying to approach your slab and crimping mastery!
rtag : So sick!!! @bethrodden
bethrodden : @lynbarraza @james_lucas @rtag ah...what used to be...
