Managed to do our traditional year end climb today. Alas, the rock was seepy and every hold was wet and very insecure. Two climbs was enough for us.

We ushered out the new year by doing a night hike on the carriage road. As we rounded the bend near the Andrew boulder we saw the glow of blue stars on the pine on top of the boulder. It was magical. Thank you to whoever decorated the tree.

Happy New Year.
