Travel Photo Challenge. Day 7/10. Bishop, California. 

I was nominated by Liberate Wings to post one travel photo a day for the next 10 days. Each day I will share a photo and challenge someone else to do the same. I also decided that though pictures say a thousand words… There’s always something more to the photo so enjoy each of the mini- stories of these photos over the next 10 days!

Bishop, California. Circa 2012.

This was my first time climbing in Bishop, California. We only had a few days to spend here but it was enough to keep me wanting more.

Bishop is predominantly a bouldering location, where the climbing is short and your fall is cushioned by high density pads called “crash pads.” Sometimes you work on a climbing problem for a few minutes, a few hours to even a few years. That’s why they call them boulder problems.

I didn’t have a lot of opportunity to work on any problems but it was really fun to be able hop on a variety of climbs. I now have a list of things I can’t wait to get back and try to send. The first one being the iron cross!

The problem in this photo was called Pope’s Prow V6 we all took a few burns at it but no one sent and it wasn’t really progressing! It definitely is something I would love to hit again. Maybe this fall!
