Ski Bum Truck V2.0, F450 Rough Road RV

That looks like super fun climbing - the rock is a spitting image of the Owens River Gorge (near Bishop, CA). Yeah, a 5.9 hand crack that you can't get your hands in gets tough real quick! He with the big hands gets to flail then the small-handed wife/girlfriend/kid get to cruise and rave about the perfect jams. Good memories of my climbing days, thanks for sharing all those photos.

Its a super fun area! I took way too many pictures if you want to see more! :) Lots of basalt, some that is little ledges, some that is the big pillars. It gets HOT though.

Its a 5.10 crack (according to my book, 5.9 on MP I guess), I made it up once this time, but fell part way up (on top rope). Made it last time though. I can get them in, its just too tight for a sideways fist, and too wide for a vertical fist. I just seem to end up with my whole arm stuffed in for friction.

This one was a fun lead, only had ~5' of a 60m rope left. Not real hard (57-8 IIRC) but super pucker being that high
