Got a couple of pitches in at the tower with the college climbing club. Got a couple of guys on their. First crack pitches. Still quite busy over there. Doesn't every one know it is just snow and cold temps around here. Climbing sucks now move along.

On Saturday did some more of my very own short bouldery clip ups with friends and on Sunday solitary bouldering, all on the hill in front of my house. I just don't feel like driving on the weekends and I have an infinity of "things pending" within walking distance.

Friday evening, after work Herb Crimp (who led the first, crux pitch, and yes that is his real name :) and Nate Sydnor and I climbed Industrial Disease 5.11+++on devildog tower, in Arches NP.
Loose weirdness led to perfect fingers, to a wide soirée, to more stellar fingers. The 2nd pitch ( that I climbed in the dark) is a ferociously overhanging 5.10 handcrack, with a tricky start. The summit of the tower is reached by a brief short-roped scramble.

I thought transitioning from the Wyde, to the fingers, perfect locks just out if my reach, was the crux. Those (taller) guys found the Wyde ( which they each resorted to lay backing) to be problematic- go figure...

Anyone ever done this semi ferocious, "97 star dick wrenching mega classic"?

Man lots of great stuff on this page. Bravecowboy that looks really cool. Jaybro is tearing it up. Me I was psyched to lead a hard 5.10 sport route that is supper slimey right outside of town. Hung a couple of times, but it was good to try something that is hard for me which I haven't done too much since hurting my shoulder in April. Little sore today, but not too bad all things considered. kind of wierd that we got quite a bit of snow a couple of weeks ago and now it is supposed to be almost 90 tomorrow and 80's all week. Gotta love the fall.

Yesterday Prod and I played hooky and took a friend of his for his first ever climb; he took all these pics.

Afterwards we went into Boulder Canyon, ended up on the wrong crag, and jumped on a sport route that we thought looked good. Found out later it was a concensus .10d called Wild Cat on Blob Rock. A lot of uphill walking for a 2-3 move crux.

You have to ask yourself, "do you want me as a belayer or a photographer?"
