March 2010 - Yosemite with the Olsens

I finally talked my parents into coming out to Yosemite, and as expected, they loved it! We took them to El Cap Meadow, hiked to Lower Yosemite Falls, went to the Awahnee (a first for me and Andrew....my mom LOVED it there) and took them climbing for their very first time. It was awesome! Because of my dad's Fire Dept experience, he was a natural with all the gear, and belayed me on two different routes at Swan Slabs. He even got on one of them, and did a great job! And check out the anchor he built. What a guy! I'm so glad I finally got to share Yosemite with them!

All set up to belay me

Now this is what I call a simul-rap:

Perfectly equalized anchor!
