Hello fellow climbers! I always love checking in with this thread and seeing what people are doing.

Just back from my second day of a trip to Smith Rocks. Yesterday my friend and I did a really fun route called "wherever they may roam", which we renamed " wherever they may sh&t because I sat in some goose sh&t at the top of the first pitch. Got really great views from the top of this 5 pitch route. This route has wonderful chossy climbing and great traversing exposure. Then we joined the crowd at Phoenix and did a couple more nice routes.

Today we spent the whole day on the west side and did 5 nice routes: a pleasant 5.9, a interesting 10.b, a long and really nice 10.d (really more like 10.c), a fun 5.8, a short but pumpy 10.c.

No falls so far on 8 pitches led and a few followed, which is just fine with me.
Tonite fish tacos and tomorrow I'm taking a rest day.p

Jumarred 8 pitches to retrieve a drill that I left up there in December so I could lend it to a friend. Finally getting back to the project and looking forward to getting it finished in the next month or so.

Taquitz was glorious yesterday (although a little crowded)

Got up Coffin Nail to Traitor Horn, and El Whampo. That 2nd pitch of Whampo is so nice, couldn't believe the jams. Took my first big whipper as well, so the day was all around a win.

Rope soloed Tunnel Vision...quite tired after that, forgot about the whole "climb each pitch twice" factor. Shoulda brought more water, too.

Fun climb but nowhere near deserving of the hype it gets.

Nope. There is no cred for just reading about climbing even if its funny.

Friends dont let friends toprope (with strangers)

You kicked your girlfriend out of the house to make more room for your
ropes. Your friends are worried sick about you. They hold an intervention.
Itís a somber event. In the corner a large, blocky object. Your friends
have kicked in 20 bucks each to get it. Its a crashpad. You stroke it
, amazed at its simplicity. They make you give up ropes forever. You
robotically say yes. You spend the rest of your life bouldering..

Went climbing today at a PREVIOUSLY Undisclosed area here in the Apple Valley area with MisterE and a couple of friends. 15 routes have been put up there in the last month so we were nailing down the ratings and climbing them to further clean them up.

Had a Great time MisterE!!!

I led Mad Woman 5.11b and Ed followed and did an additional TR lap and confirmed the grade at 11b. So Stoked! my hardest lead technicaly. It is 30m sport so it was not as hard overall mentaly and physicaly as many of the multi pitch climbs of a lower grade.
