So today was a bit of an adventure, though not the one we were looking for. We woke up a bit late, then headed into the valley looking for some sport routes (pre-bolted routes) on El Cap. We hiked around for a couple hours and couldn't find the routes we were looking for and as the heat increased we headed to the river to cool down.
Despite the warm temps and the frustration of not finding what we were looking for we decided to get some bouldering in at Camp 4. After goofing around on some easy problems we wandered over to Midnight Lightning. Neither of us were feeling great and it was rather warm still but we gave it a go anyway. In truth it turned out to be the highlight of the day. Hanging in Camp 4, trying (though not successfully) one of the greatest and easily the most recognized boulder problem in the world. Meeting some fellow climbers feeling the same way (wandering around Yosemite and not getting what they wanted, but still loving every minute of it) all in all, a great day.
Plus we swam in the Merced, met some ducks, were told by the rangers that they weren't letting press near the fire (will try again tomorrow) gave El Cap a hug, and so Half Dome wouldn't be jealous Rupa hugged a statue of it, and still got a bit of climbing in.
