I had planned to be in Yosemite today, but had to cancel this morning because my partner came down with the flu. Anyone interested in joining me for a day trip to Yosemite tomorrow? I am based in Palo Alto, Bay area.
I would leave either late tonight and sleep on a designated pull-out, or have an alpine start tomorrow (leaving 2am), climb dawn till dusk, and be back Sunday by midnight.
I was aiming for a day at El Cap base, and for my current objective involving big wall and wide climbing I was aiming for routes/pitches with some off-width and chimneys (5.7-lower 5.10) and some aid practice. I can lead most things up to easier 5.10 (and can aid through things if needed). But I am of course open to alternatives. I have a big rack up to 6" and a car.
Weather seems good enough until at least later in the afternoon.
