I was digging through some of my old photos and found these gems from a trip I took to Gold Bar last summer. High up in the boulder fields in Gold Bar, Bret Johnston and I came across a beautiful boulder covered at the bottom with a bright, neon green moss, hence the name for the problem, The Green Goblin. The route involves an intense overhanging start on a left hand mini-pinch and a right hand crimp, one move to another small crimp, before a dyno to a gigantic sloper.

Along with the food photos I recently shot, I got a chance to take pictures of the spaces as well. Below are pictures of the Backdoor at Roxy’s. The curves and shape of the room lent itself well to the wide-angle fisheye. I really wanted to get the detail and colors that are so elaborate in this space, which include several different murals and hanging chandeliers.
The Temple was located in Deep Playa, far away from the camps. Traveling to it was a good ten minute ride. Stepping past the outer fence, I arrived at the tail-end of an official Playa Wedding, complete with a certified Black Rock City Minister. This was official! After sending the newly-weds off, I stepped into the center of The Temple, completely awestruck by the ornate detail of the Altar and the building as a whole. The reverence was almost tangible within The Temple, with only the occasional sob breaking the silent prayers of the throngs of people. Some scribbled prayers and wishes into the carved walls, while others left letters and pictures to loved ones; all with the knowledge that The Temple would burn on Sunday.
