Went out today to the Emeralds. We climbed the new routes on the Kudos Cliff. Super solid rock and good movement. A stick clip was useful. Got the tour while we were there, and plan to go back Sunday to the Fast Food Wall. Step in to the Light .10c was classic and super fun!

Were you working that line on Sunday Mar. 28th? Kinda lots like the same route we saw someone, from afar, working that day. (On our way back from a day of exploring some rock in the "backcountry" around there.) Does that line go just to the right of a big roof? If so, it looked like a nice line through the overhanging section :) and if it is where I'm thinking, the roof just to the left of that line looked interesting, even if it turned out to be an aid route through the roof. Lots of good rock that looks like that out there.

Hey john- up there Saturday. A bunch of folks out there Sunday. Line goes through right center of roof. There are now 3 bolted lines there with another 5 on the way. You should come check it out.

Thanks to the folks who set this area up. We had a fun time out there on The Funhouse wall and Candyland walls.

Can't wait to get back out there an explore more of the other locations.

Any good suggestions on 10a-10.c climbs?

Thanks,
