Woodfords and gardening? Never.......

Maybe someone can bring their manscaping tools to finish that route.

Did a few routes on the lower tier in Cloudburst but I don't know the wall or the names. It was up and left a bit from High Energy Wall (I believe). Can't wait to get back on do more!

Any help on where we are?

Gotcha. Thanks for the beta, Kenny. Kinda neat not knowing the ratings and just climbing them.

There looked to be another thin crack with anchors in between them and some nice looking cracks a little bit below the orange corner. All in that same 9-10 range. Would you agree?

Really good climb, Dan. Slick feet gaining the crack then a perfect splitter to the top. A nice warm up climb. Heading back Saturday to check out some of the upper tiers. Any suggestions?

Dan - after climbing Tall people reach, Short people climb 2x, I'd have to say it's definitely not whimpy for "taller" people (I'm 5 11 on a good day). That 10 foot finger section above the bolt is stout for a 5.9. It does make a nice initial pitch to access the upper tier. I thought Ativan's and that new 10c on the upper where stellar though. Props to Kenny for his 13+ hours of scrubbing on that one, it was worth it!

Great work, gents!

Hard to believe it was once so dirty. Just goes to show we can all clean up well with a bit of effort (well maybe not everyone)...
