Friday evening Jesse Evans and I (Pablo Zuleta)  headed out in the rain to the Sasquatch Boulders.  We camped and woke up to a rainy Saturday morning next to the river.... but still motivated to expoulder! 

Saturday afternoon the sun poked out and the rain was pushed up the pass, but the rock was still too wet to climb so we decided to chase salmon around for 3 hours.  (We ate chicken for dinner, if that says anything about our fishing skills). 

Sunday morning Jesse and I woke up early to work on camp a bit and were waiting for friends to arrive.  At 9:30 am Blue, Leah and Dan arrived to check out Sasquatch for the first time !  After a short walk up hill we looked at some of the new climbs, but they were still damp so we decided to climb other lines, such as Solaris.  Then around noon we switched gears to climb the new problems, which was about when Ben and Jess arrived.  That is when the FA's started going up and the day really got started.  We had like 8 pads, tons of sunshine and were stoked to explore what the new climbs would bring. The photos below show some of the rad new climbs that went up this weekend.

Goosebumps was still a little damp, so we were doing a lot of this.
