you would think he would plug a cam in under that jam and hang his big wall rack off of it while he works

Ron, this area has the second shortest approach at the fords... the Apron being the shortest. Directly above the parkin area for Strangler Cliff. Three minutes... but not so serene. Cars and some camp noise.

More fun today with Rick Sumner at his new Desert crag with Hillrat too.

Picking off more multi pitch 5.3ds. There are also some solid looking harder lines.

Hillrat at pitch 2 of some stuff we climbed to the left of the ramp.


Hillrat and Sumner on some stuff.


Near the top after a more couple pitches of easy fun stuff.

Heh. It's a fun catchall rating isn't it :)

Hey Ron we did a couple things to the left of the ramp 4.5 Pitches total.

First effort had me leading a low angle traverse seen in the second pic from yesterday. Gads my confidence on lead is abysmal these days even with stellar pro (I'm pathetic lol). Gotta get out more than a couple times a month. Rick finished that and we backed off a little later when the the route wanted to head directly up cranking on a hollow sounding block/flake. No point to taking any risk who were we trying to impress. John did a nice job retrieving cams backleading.

SO we wandered a couple hundred feet over to the start of the ramp and went up the wall into a left leaning weakness. 4th classish to a sweet little alcove with some interesting chimney and other exit possibilities. Did a couple more pitches above there. More like mountaineering.

Just a perfect weather day out, no one for miles, good views and great company. Good beers waiting at the truck when we got down.

Lots of rock there. Quality seems to vary from decent to excellent. Also plenty of single pitch good looking harder stuff to be had.
