Desperately Seeking Shade

With temperatures reaching 29C for the first three days of climbing and 35C!!! yesterday, we have been trying to plan our climbs around shady areas. Tunnel Vision was great not only for climbing but also for shade. Due to the direction of the corner cracks at least the belayer was always in the shade and going through the tunnel pitch was almost chilly!

Yesterday we went into First Creek area with an hour long hike in with almost no shade. But in this desert wasteland there was a surprising little creek area that we stopped at on the way out to soak our feet. Paradise!
Ahhhhhh. . .
