Lone Peak

I went to Lone Peak for the first time and it was great. The whole time i was up there I could not stop wondering why I had not made the journey up there before. The rock is top notch, climbing is great, and last but not least the hang is about as good as it gets. Plop your tent down in the middle of the the meadow and it will be perfectly flat and being in the middle of a gorgeous cirque is not bad either.
The Question Mark route
A pretty fun 11a R that packs a bit of spiccceeee

High Performance 5.12+ PG13 
I was fortunate enough to get the second ascent of this rig.  Props to Noah Bigwood for putting this great seam up for us all to enjoy.

After the crux of High Performance and I am jazzed to get that bomb finger lock.  
More good seam climbing on HP
Some amazing climbing on the Center Thumb 5.9+.  This section has giant patina jugs every where.

I got to finish off the day with a solo of the Low Route 5.8 that is one of the best few pitch 5.8's I have ever done.  My friend Perter was just ahead of me so we got to bull shit the whole way, which made it fun.  When we got back to camp the crew had steaks that were just getting done with jalapeno's, garlic, PBR, and whiskey.  I dont think it gets much better than that in the alpine.  Thank you everyone for the great time up there and I hope it is not the last time we do that.
