After getting some better beta on our plans to climb the E couloir of Split Mtn, we decided to bail. Luckily I was able to find some partners and head up to Yosemite Valley for some climbing – not such a terrible substitute.

I managed to get in about a dozen routes, climbing at church bowl saturday, and El Cap base sunday. And of course, like any good yose weekend trip, we finished it off with dinner at La Costa in Oakdale.
