Thanks to Cal Fire and Mama Africa for chopping wood and carrying water to stop the King Fire. Fire quenching rain this weekend is okay with me.

I outdid myself in the Stronghold climbing gym near downtown LA this morning, then had some fabulous tacos at a place around the corner.

A short but sweet session, I did the hardest crack 3 times clean, and got an 11d toprope clean. Decided to close it out with a lap up and down an easy hand crack. Not bad considering I've only climbed a handful of times since the beginning of summer. Now if I get my cardio and endurance act in order, I might not embarrass myself if I ask le_bruce to pull me up something in Yosemite this autumn.

Climbed a new route on Elkhorn Peak today with a buddy that also grew up in the same town that I went to high school in. We are calling it The Corn Palace Connection. It was his first trad lead and about half of his placements were tipped out, but nobody died and he learned a lot about placing gear so it was all good. He did a 250ft pitch that I simuled on second that was about 5.5 and I did a full pitch of 5.6 after that to the shoulder. We then did a whole bunch of third class with several short sections of 5th class to top out on elkhorn and had quite an adventure getting off and getting back to our gear. Really great rock on the first two pitches with good gear so it was quite fun,

It is the long chimney on the right of the formation.

We then did some bouldering at the maze and another route by Boxelder Creek.

Grouse Mtn, elev 9,000' or so – this is that high dome south of the Peabodies. About 5 hrs, couch2couch from 6,000' and maybe a 5 mi desert xc approach hike “a journey of 10,000 miles is worth a thousand words”

Hah The Tippler!

Very nice climb Andy.

Was the thread in at the end of the traverse?
Did you do the other climbs in the vicinity? Unprintable is the same grade but seems to get done much less than the Tippler. Maybe wrist breaking jams to inglorious knee-liebacking is not considered "modern"?

Next step: Tippler Direct - not much harder if you can lock off long enough.

Lasti

Lasti the thread is no longer there but there is a good vertical cam placement at the same place. I tried the direct just afterwards. Thought I had the lock off nailed but that next hold is sooooo far away. :)

Went back the week after and did Left Unconquerable and Little Unconquerable. Two great routes. (Little Unconquerable is the wide crack in the top left of the pic below.)

So she goes to all that trouble to steal the car and the gear and then goes to Rockland?! Ouch. (Buy her a map for her 13th b-day.)
