Halloween and Tridents 
Sunday, November 3, 2013, 06:35 PM - Weekend Fun
Saturday, Mike and I tried to ride Kind of the Mountain, but the mud was insane. We bailed after 1/3 of the ride because the mud was so terrible.



Last Thursday I made a quick trip out to San Diego to the EESAT review where I presented some microgrid research. Then on this Tuesday I presented the smart grid pre-certifications work in Portland. Hopefully someone found it interesting. As a plus, I met up with Dro and played some skeeball and drank a couple beers!

For Halloween, Mike and I went out to a party with a few friends. I went as a 80's Yosemite climber (Lance Johnson) and Mike was a dirtbad white trash guy with his mullet wig. Decent time but nothing crazy. Saturday, Mike, Tom, and I climbed a potential First Ascent of the Tridents which we're calling "Trimming Bush: the Tale of the Rumphassler." I lead the first miserable pitch through the bushes. It was the one of the roughest 5.8 leads I've had... and it included a nasty traverse where I aided a tiny nut while straddling a shrub. Somehow things worked out and I got to the top. Pitches 2 and 3 were cruiser and we made quick work of the rap.
