Nothing but a pull-up bar today.

A few days ago Jeremy and I did a 10c,10b,and two 5.9d's!!
I popped off the 10b and took a little 10 footer, yikes!

I was a bit worked after that. I'm in for an ass whoopin' on this upcoming climbing trip.....*gulp*

Not positive though...

MIGHT need to be RESPONSIBLE and BAIL...

Hit the gym yesterday and trashed myself. Then an occasional partner called last night and proposed skipping work and climbing. We did that, and I managed my best onsight in several years, so that was very cool.

The tower is definately climbable in winter, but it kind of depends on the winter. DT is kind of out of the snow cycle around here and is low enough that the temps will almost always be pleasent if it is a sunny day on the South face. We have ice climbing just a few minutes outside of town though so I do a lot of that in the winter. We did climb there on Sunday and that is when the picture was taken.

Took a few burns on Scatterbrain for the first time...more progress on every burn, but no send. Slopy wide pinches, slightly funky/tricky beta. Spotter didn't spot and I've got a giant bruise on my azz after one nice tumble.

Then headed to Moonbeam crack to boulder out the bottom half, trying to get it wired. Few burns until diminishing returns. Damn that thing is hard and continuous, and kinda reachy.

Then soloed middle and right peyote cracks, went to search for Moving to Montanta aka Kevitation after failing to find it on 3 previous occasions. FOUND IT! And it's not that good, at least not for a wide problem. The wide is like 2 fist jams, then hard really steep face/sloper climbing with bad fall potential (you could roll of the platform and got another 10' to the floor).

Then went to sports challenge with a pad and harness..hoping someone had a rope on the Beaver, with Kirkatron as a backup plan. No beaver party, so took burns on Kirkatron...forgot how sequential it is (for me, anyway, have to get everything right to send).

That darn scaffolding again finishing my roof....Nearly tipped the Scaffolding doing a mantle on the edge of a piece.....Forgot we didn't have it clamped down or many pounds of materials stabilizing it.
Kinda like climbing 10b face a little up and a little down....

I climbed Shake and Bake at West Pinnacales National Monument today...my friend Eric and I the only climbers in the park. Exciting old school route, especially when you skip the first belay at the end of the traverse and do one mega 1st pitch with rope drag on 5.10a R, 30 feet out...Felt like cloud nine after clipping the chains at 160 feet or so. Winds were howling through the trees, and we were semi protected in our lava tube. Toproped the first pitch of Electric Blue as well, long 5.11a that I'll have to lead when the wind is not howling.
What a great day!

hey there all.... say, (not counting my stairs of course) :O

well, i never get to climb... and it was a great surprise-blessing the other few days, to finally GET TO CLIMB A HILL!!!...

yep--a really neat one, and steep, though sadly, it was a paved one...




it was leading into a uh...

golf course....

well, it was all i had.... :)

i was lucky to be there... really....

some friends from england, came to visit and we just happened to stay at a golf course, though non of us play golf... it was an off season, so they take folks in...

it was a really lovely, and very spendid part of the woods though... the trees were great with wild colors... and all kind of woodsy-stuff was around...

and... well, the golf course was around, too... sure couldnt miss it, and i am surly not knocking it... :)
it was just so strange to be in the woods-----but not really "in" them...

the hill was great to climb, even though it was a golf cart trail... but--
i just looked up the wonderful trees and pretended it was dirt beneath my feet... and:

the veiw of the trees, and the lay of the land, around the golf course, was
really lovely... it really was... i will post a pic, later, of the trees...

well, that's it for me, folks... climbing in to bed to sleep now, is what i will do:
if all the critters get out and make room for me... :O

happy climbing! while you can... as winter is soon upon us in many places...

edit: here is the picture... you can NOT see the steepness of the hill, though, from here... it drops sharply down...
and... it is JUST as steep once you go around, and come back up to the other side, way-far-left of this starting point...
