Walter Mencken 6:15 p.m., Feb. 28
Truck camping off "Movie Road" in the Alabama Hills, just outside Lone Pine, CA. Had a blast here, donning my shoes and chalkbag and climbing those magnificent boulders, shooting my bow at a 3-D target I keep in the sidebox, drinking beer and generally goofing off in the shadow of Mount Whitney. Spent the following night up at Horseshoe Meadow (10,000' elevation), where I soloed a radical granite crag in tribute to a friend who had recently passed away. Overall, a very good weekend.
