Concord Staff Trip
The Touchstone Concord staff had a great day bouldering in Yosemite Valley on their November 18th staff retreat. The weather couldn't have been better: cool and sunny. A few highlights of the trip: new staff member, Monica Aranda, sent the classic Cocaine Corner; Scott Chandler put to rest his nemesis, Thriller; first time boulderer, Grace Ragsdale, surprised herself by mastering some tricky slab problems.
After a full day of climbing, everyone took their tired muscles and shredded skin to the Lodge cafeteria where folks rewarded themselves with large amounts of fried food and chocolate cake. Andrew Descalso proved himself to be the most impressive eater of the bunch, easily downing a large mayonnaise packet to win a bottle of $2 Chuck. It was a fitting ending to a fun day.
