G&S Yosemit’uose

Per kelias praleistas savaites Gedas su Saule jau spėjo užlipti ne vieną rimtą maršrutą. Prieš kelias dienas jiedu užlipo Zodiac’ą.

Apie jaunuolius iš tolimos Lietuvos jau pradėjo rašyti vietinis Tom Evans. Ten, kur vyksta didžiausias veiksmas jis kasdien padaro po kelis kadrus su savo milžinišku objektyvu, pritraukdamas ir labia aukštai esančius laipiotojus.

Štai ką sako apie lietuvius patyręs Yosemitų laipiotojas T.Evans: “Zodiac:  The Lithuanian couple is kicking serious ass on this classic aid climb.  Last night they bivied at the top of the Circle after climbing all the way from the top of two.  Today they blew past Grover and Matt and by the time I left they were finishing the pitch above Peanut ledge and must be off my now… one bivy ascent!  Sweet!!”

“Today’s report is brought to you by the Lithuanian team who are smoking up the Zodiac in great style.”

“Lower down yet, a Lithuanian mixed team, climbed from the top of two and were headed toward the Circle as I left.  The woman lead the Bolt ladder pitch, the 5th on the route, in a way I haven’t seen for years… She lead the old Porter rivet ladder, ignoring the shiny bolt ladder put in by the route fixers a few years back.  She went along quickly and then lead the short lead to the start of the Black Tower pitch.  He lead that pitch easily.  They have been by the bridge a couple of times and we all have enjoyed their youthful enthusiasm and charm.”
