Hi all, just came back from Facelift. Man, we need to improve our Woodfest to match Facelift. It was organized and executed perfectly!

Didn't go climbing, though. Got sick and left early.

On a side note, sorry for vandalizing your route, Kenny (or was it Shawn's?) LOL

Kenny, thanks for the feedback.
We went with the three inch, the additional depth
gives a way better feeling.

My bad, Dan. I've lowered off many a shut before without thinking twice. But I have many stainless hangers so I'll replace them this weekend.

Kenny, I think am missing that cam, plus 2 quick draws. The cam was marked with an "A" on the sling (could have faded by now).

Dan - glad to hear you got on the route. I start just left of the huge broken left-facing corner below the first roof, climb directly up and traverse left at the horizontal that tops the finger crack. From there, up the left arÍte to the anchors. Didn't look at the face option that avoids the scramble up to the start but it's probably a nice variation.

I agree there's still some looseness in the middle of the climb but it is easy to avoid with great pro I didn't want to get into that house of cards. I think all the death blocks have been removed.

Next year we need some good stories to be told.

Sponors would be good.

A ruffle to climb with celebrities maybe.

Music for sure.

Ron, ANY music would be good. And, if you can tell stories as good as you write, people would love to hear them for sure! We need two speakers per day, I guess.

I don't know any celebrities except myself, and if you climb with me, you would most likely be on the sharp end! ;-) We could call it "Climbing with a Boob"!

Another idea, let's hire Chicken Skinner, he is GOOD!

Our first event was a good start, but we can do better. We need more input from other people for sure.

I thought the 1st annual event was a great start,
the people I met were all very cool,
the pig n feed was great.
The auction and donations made some $ supporting a new guidebook.
(Hows that going Dan?)
I brought my acoustic bass guitar in case a jam broke out, but it never did.
Brought shoes and gear in case other geezers in search of 5.3d wanted to git after it, but that didn't happen.

Had a good time checkin out an area I had not been to before, pounded some booze n bowls with some new friends and look forward to the 2nd Woodfest!

Kenny - finally lead Dr. Sleep. Was able to get a 0.4 just below the bolt but still clipped it. Glad I did, the next placement under the roof is quite a ways above it. Total thought provoking placements the whole way.

Dan - we also did Long Arm. Might be the best climb up there??? The partners and I all loved it. Great crack at the start with thin, balancey moves for the entire top half all the way to the chains. Super fun.

The top tier is top notch.

I'm free tomorrow too! Probably gonna do some solo stuff and hang out with the dog instead though. You get out often in the midweek? I'm cruxing on the midweek partners now that my main bud is road tripping. Either way, have fun!
