Buttermilks: Day 1

Buttermilks: Day 1

We made it to Bishop late last night. After a few hours of sleep we headed to Wilson’s Eastside Sports to pick up an additional pad. I wasn’t very focused today, did some warm up problems then gave the Iron Man traverse a few tries. I got to the move to the lip a few times, but didn’t have the endurance to hold it. Here’s a nice shot from one of my attempts(photo credit: Candice Todryk).
