The Valley with Steve

My friend Steve is a late comer to climbing but he has taken to it in a big way. He has morphed himself into a V5, 5.12 powerhouse in his old age. He thinks nothing about a 4:50AM start, 4 hour drive to Yosemite, climb all day and drive back to Santa Cruz. So, one Saturday in May, off we go. The plan was to find Imani (Steve's daughter) and Conor and their friends from Davis at the boulders behind Camp 4 then go climb some routes.

The kids were good!
