|Me on Birthday Direct V3***|
http://www.weilandbrewery.net/WBR/ and had beer and buffalo shrimp. We had dinner at an Izakaya and talked so much about how we never thought we would be living in the States at the same time!! Hope to see here again soon!!!
First thing in the morning, we drove to Bishop and met up with Glen from LV. Since Yusuke made a plan to take turns on climbing/rest days, we went to Happy Boulders to go over problems I can do on the next day. Everyone was warming up with the HIGH slab problem, Heavenly Path V1*** but I had no guts to hop on, so I climbed Which Road VB** first and then tried... However, I could not get used to the rock and height yet, so I just went with another easy problem, Any Which Way V0+ . After that, Glen suggested a problem that was my style, Solarium V4*** and tried to figure out my own move, but since this was Yusuke's climbing day, I decided to leave it for my next day.

For dinner, we went to Pizza Factory. It was good for the cost! http://bishop.pizzafactory.com/index.html
Yusuke (on his "rest day"), finished 2 other V6s, Green Wall Center V6*** and Milks the Milks V6**! Congrats!
This night we went to Whiskey Creek and had lots of Mammoth beer! http://whiskeycreekbishop.com/

Now that I had no load on my shoulders, I decided to enjoy some easy starred problems. Sent The Flake V1** in 2 tries, tried Monkey Dihedral V2*** but couldn't figure out the move, hopped on Birthday Direct V3*** again, and On-sighted Five and Dime V1**.
And for dinner we went to Whiskey Creek which became or favorite!!
Last climbing day in Bishop. This day was a sending parade for Yusuke!! He finished High Plains Drifter V7*** , Cave Route V6** and Bowling Pin Sit Start V6***, all in 2-4 tries!! Good that he had a complete rest day... or maybe this was because we had no extra battery charged this day! Anyway, HURRAY!!!
I on the other hand, just had fun like hopping on A Birthing Experience V1* (finished OS) and trying Buttermilk Stem V1***.

Potato Chips V2***
Yusuke finished his project from 4 years ago, The Pearl V5*** and another V6 problem, Monkey Bar Right V6**.
Before heading back, I asked if I can try any V3s, and was able to send an unnamed problem on the southeast face of The Butt Crack Boulder in a few tries. Yeah!!
