Sunrise Bouldering at the Sunset Boulders

The first stop on our week long trip to boulder on California's northern coast.

Jon and I had been talking about a big climbing trip for years I think. He moved back to Oklahoma and it seemed like it would never happen. Finally, I decided to just pick a time and place and cross my fingers he would be able to make it. And he did! Dude drove out from Tulsa with his girlfriend Lindsey and buddy Deon. I had to make sure this trip was one for the books!

I knew the Sunset Boulders best. I had been there before and had some particular photos in mind for this trip. I was hoping the coast would deliver it's typical blankets of thick, thick fog in the morning, just like the last time I was there. Well it didn't. But it did give us a great sunrise and the weather the rest of the morning couldn't have been any better.

We spent the entire morning there, just hanging out and climbing. Once the lighting was just no good anymore we decided to call it a day and go grab some food and some rest. I did get these guys up at 4am after all. Here are some of the shenanigans we got into.

Huge thank you to MiiR, Coalatree, Gregory Packs, Clif Bar, and The Outbound for the support on this trip! Wouldn't have been the same without these awesome brands getting involved!
