I’m belaying @humanboltgun on the 8th pitch of Skull Queen right now as I type this (aid belaying is slow – putting a knot in the rope a few feet below the GriGri buys you ~5 minutes of hands free). It’s been a bit windy and cold, but a fun day so far. In this photo, Rob starts off the opening moves on the 8th pitch with the big NW face of Half Dome in the background.
