Wideness in the Voo

I am back at work, cranking out 70 hour weeks, and did a shift from 6 pm to 6 am last night with the wolf pack.  Lazy day today.

Anyways, a few weeks back I did a cool trip to Vedauwoo and got to climb some cool routes and climb with some cool people.  The people I got to see and climb with included Pamela Pack, Zach and Racheal the local guidebook authors, Matt and Molly the OWers and Nathan and Jim photo/ film guys and climbers.

All in all it was a great trip and alot of cool stuff happened.  Pamela established one of the sickest offwidths I have ever seen.  Matt got the ultimate sandbag tour, and I got to try a few old routes and a few new ones.

The crew hanging out as Matt prepared for Burning Man.  An all out Ved classic and cool spot to hang out.

All in all a great trip with some good repeats and some even cooler new ones!  Thanks for letting me borrow some shots, Matt, Zach, and Nathan. 

Check out Pamela and Matt's blogs for more details as I turned this into more of a photo blog today...
