“ A Laywoman’s Account” Of Climbing In Yosemite

jugging the headwall

Quite an entertaining story of 3 nights climbing on the Salathe Wall in Yosemite. The photo is of a belayer who took a nap because of lack of sleep.

“I jug like a lunatic up to Lung Ledge with a whole roasted chicken in tow. I am met with great enthusiasm thanks to big bird. The plan was for me to jump on the hollow flake in the dark so as to not burn precious day light hours the next day grunting up the thing. However, after all the barfing down below and all the jugging up above, I wasn't in the best condition to fight with the rock. Midnight. Bellies full. We snooze.”
