Tableland Life

With the exception of one day, cut short by snow, I have been climbing exclusively in the "Tablelands", Bishop's low quality volcanic version of Hueco Tanks.  While the rock sometimes lacks integrity I'm finding the climbing itself to be pretty enjoyable.  The snowy peaks are always looming to the West and the broad plains lend a unique ambiance to this classic winter climbing destination.  Not a bad place to wait for the snow to melt in Yosemite...
