Managed to sneak in a climb between rain showers and bantering on the Taco today. A few weeks ago I bumped into the closest landowner at the base of the cliff I have been developing for the last 3 years. Turns out that Curtis is a mountainere with new routs in Peru and Himilaya etc.. has not done much rock climbing in a good while but his house is literally 5 min by foot from the base of the cliff. This afternoon We managed to climb a sweet 90ft 5.7 just before the rain hit. Despite his trad and big mountain roots Curtis seems very happy to have bolts in his back yard:)

I don't have much time, so I take my chances when they come. Thanks to Ron A and Rick S, as well as ClimbSki2 for climbing with me. Was going to invite Ron with us today, but figured this was going to be so short and easy it just wouldn't interest him much. We were only out about an hour before the better half sent a grocery list and we had to bail.

Anyway, my other reliably occasional partner from Sacto was up and I prodded him to try lead for the first time. I set him up to follow a very short, close to home, easy crack that tops out at maybe 50feet, if that.

He tied in for lead, took the rack and a few pointers (he's followed me up a couple easy gear leads and cleaned all but one fixed cam, so why not?) and headed up. Man, did he have the elvis legs going! I lowered him, then went up on top-rope to clean. Here's the glory that I found:

This is why I took him on a short, easy route, and had him on top-rope as a mock lead. He just isn't ready. Yet...

This was the maiden voyage of my new rock climbing club. I wanted to take advantage of the local crags, so we met at the high school parking lot and just hoofed it from there.
Three students and a stray dog showed up.

Ok, not climb but descend.... Went with a crew of 3 others to the Grand Canyon, on Monday Sept. 30th. In just under the wire, though we did have to cut our trip short... the plan had been to canyoneer & hike a bunch, and of course enjoy Phantom Ranch's liquid offerings from time to time. I joked as we headed off that there might be a shutdown (but I truly didn't believe it would happen). First night we were told everyone out by the third. So we cut our trip by 2 days, but wow, it was a unique once in a lifetime thing to be in the Grand Canyon when hardly anyone else is around! It also added to the intensity of the canyon we descended (none of us had ever done this canyon before/and it was pretty intense, long rappels through loud steep waterfalls)... we were all thinking, but didn't say it, wow we can't blow this, as there is not going to be a rescue option.... whhooooooo, eerie! But it went great, at least 6 200 ft rappells approx... amazing views, awesome crew.... there was only one scary moment when the pull cord wouldn't pull... It was freaky, I sooo didn't want us to have to ascend the line through a waterfall! thankfully with some finagling it finally pulled!
