The family and I returned to the crag I put together to have a short quick hike with family friendly routes. I received some flack for it. Its too chossy. It will never clean up. Most people will be too wigged by the friable nature of the rock... 5 years later, I am proud to say, they were wrong! About 15 people enjoyed themselves for the 4 hours we were there climbing. People were still coming in as we packed up to go. Beautiful day in wine country!

It was notso much the climb, as the descent that was memorable!

For the time being, I seem to have lost all my partners, so I've been doing a lot of solitary bouldering. But last Saturday I got out with a rope (and hopefully tomorrow too). Fede sent this thing

I got on this short little ditty, which is the hardest thing I've done with a rope in many years (nine months post op and my hips are doing the job):

This thing is actually pretty steep

There's a tricky little crux getting into position and grabbing that point up at the top. My chalk bag shows the angle of the route.

Now grab that thing and get the hell out of there

The big backpack was carrying our "pack & play" so our little 7 month old had a place to sit and play at the base of of the crag.

The routes:
Peon's Delight - 5.9, one star
Mission Impossible - 5.10c, three stars
Power Tools - 5.10d, can't remember the stars

We elected to start Power Tools via the opening 5.9 crack on the Berzerker Route. We will be returning soon to climb Berzerker and do the 5.10b and 5.12a starts to Power Tools.

The weather has been basically perfect for almost three weeks, so I've been slacking as much as possible from work in order to climb (not today or tomorrow, though). Did more of this kinda stuff on the weekend:

Got out to the Harney flow today. It was in beautiful condition. Some of the other stuff that was in has since melted out/washed away.

Looks like the bolt must have come off or broke.
