Sunday 22nd - Friday 27th August - Toulumne, Yosemite National Park
|View of Half Dome|
On the Sunday morning we drove into the Park and headed to Toulumne Meadows. Here we managed to get the equipment we needed and 5 nights in the campsite - awesome! In the afternoon, we headed off to do our 1st route: West Crack on Duff Dome. 60m pitches of crack on pristine granite - wow! Felt the altitude kicking in as I puffed my way to the top!

Next day, Regular Route on Fairview. A classic American climb. Team Jones were hot on the heels of the American team above and speeding along above the Taiwanese team below! Think I've got the hang of hand-jamming now!
|That's Fairview Dome. Our route went right up the middle|
