Lost Horse Festival 2011

The Ho’s and I went over for the annual Lost Horse Festival outside of Hamilton, MT.  It was a little warm and a lot smokey, but we perservered and all three of us had a great day.  Ho was inspired by my last post and won the competition, Sarah climbed awesome (two V5s!) and got second place in the woman’s category behind local crusher Molly Rennie, and I had the best single day of bouldering in my life.  I did two old projects first go and sent three new “projects” quickly.  Here’s some photos:

Ho and I finished out the weekend Sunday morning by getting crushed by the old-school slab classic ‘the Parrot’.  I actually have no idea if this is “old-school” but it seems that every climb like this is.  Both of us got it, but it did not go easily…
