Lead the left 5.7 on Dos Coyotes crag in Joshua Tree yesterday (at least I thought it was Dos Coyotes). Obscure locale, gritty and best fist jams I've had in years (especially in JT). Even a fun roof and baby off-widths at the top. Amazing direct views of Ryan and Saddle Rock from a place you'd not expect them.

Got tooled by a docent naturalist in a uniform on the way there. Very funny, she told us we were in a closed area (no, was not private property). So we just walked out into the desert and around where her group was. I let her go with just a warning and my usual kindness toward strangers. :-)

Then later on snuck in a couple of Indian Palisades corridor routes I've been wanting to do for a while. Warm but not too hot for early April. Breezes appeared just when needed. Light was magical and stunning Many stories were told. Only 10% of them involved made up sh#t. Ha ha!

Been wanting to post to this thread for a long time. Hopefully this will become more regular going forward.

No pickchures, sorry folks. At least until I download what might be on my other camera.

Peace out,
Eric

Three new 20' boulder problems by my house. All easy (V0-V2), but fun!

Big Mike, I might have to! I love the Valley at that time of year and have been telling myself I need to make it out for that. Will have to see how my days off shake out relative to that time of year. I miss the ditch!

Do it man!! See you at the Cookie!!

Well, I tried to get out to Auburn; but it wasn't happening. Couldn't convince my friends to hike the approach (pusses). Neither would they wait for me, or come back to pick me up. Next time I drive alone. Was nice to have a look from across the canyon though, reminds me of all the times we jumped off the rocks by the old rail bridge. Oh well. Summer's coming.

oh wait, does a 5 ft boulder (including sit-start) v-nothing, possibly 4th class, count if I didn't spill my beer?

The HQ of Bank of Ireland.

Darn security systems, all I wanted to do was rob a couple of million. Climbing gear is not cheap nowadays. Neither is rent. Road (car) text is also costly.

If the banking executives can rob millions, why can't I?

Otherwise, just bouldered up in the quarry (yesterday). Spring may have finally arrived.

Sweet pics, TMC. You and Isa are all over it up there.
I wanted to climb today, but we had raging tiny thunderstorms all day, so I rebuilt my router.

Climbed the tower with Jack today and he stepped up and cleaned all of the pitches of the Bowling Alley, to Durrance to, the Bailey Direct. He took a fall on the second pitch of Durrance but was going for it and did not ask to take. He also had enough in the tank to be willing to go for the 150ft Bailey Direct for the last pitch as opposed to doing the standard meadows finish.



Jefe that sh*t looks sick.

Got the rope hopelessly stuck when rapping to clean the pitch instead of fixing and following. Doh!

n00b! hehehe

Damn! I am an ass today. But it's almost midnight. I can always be a bigger ass ;)
