Climbing: September 13-14, 2014 (Tuolumne)
September 13-14, 2014: Tuolumne, Yosemite National Park, California, USA

After taking a couple weeks off climbing while recovering from a minor injury I was back at it in Tuolumne with John, John E, and Kori.
Saturday September 13, 2014: Regular Route on Fairview Dome 5.9
Despite not even starting particularly early we were the first roped party up Regular Route. It was cold, I left a gold DMM curved nut in the crack, dropped a Mammut carabiner, but it was an awesome day. We simul climbed after the 8th pitch and took a little nap at the summit while we waited for John E and Kori to finish the route.
