Old news = new news

We have been really lazy in posting updates on this blog. It’s not like we haven’t been doing anything, it’s just that we are so lazy. Anyway, here are some old news, things that happened since the last post.

First thing first, my mum finally went home. She spent almost 6 months in US with us. I’ve gotten so used to her being around, making me breakfast, lunch, dinner and keeping things tidy. It’s going to take a while to adjust being just 2 of us again. She made it home to Malaysia safely even though sounded like it was a big adventure because she never travel alone before.

Zach visited us a few weeks before and we took both him and my mum to Leavenworth, Washington.

Here is Zach climbing in bare feet.

And since we were in a Bavarian town, we got to have some pig feet.

And Yogi of course get a taste of it too.

Here is Matt climbing some crazy slab route.

Ahhh…aren’t they cute…

Last weekend we went to Index. We heard so much good thing about it so we figure we might as well check it out before the close the access to the Lower Town wall. The routes are all great and fun. Camping is pretty horrible because we literally sleep next to the train track and the train goes by at least 8 times the whole night. Thanks to Eric, we have a few good pics of Toxic Shock. We mostly we just climb and not take any pics at all.

This is me braving through the crux, resisting the urge to pull on my purple camelot. I was so glad when I got to the thank god hold.

This is me top-roping after I bailed before the cross-over to the splitter, my mental crux. The move is pretty easy on top-rope but the fall factor is too great for me to risk.
