Went to take the girls clamping last week at the potholes and old camp bluff. unfortunately, they want more to camp at the potholes than a hotel room here in south lake taco so we opted for kirkwood lake instead. i went there with a girlfriend last year, but we never found any bolts and she was against using any natural anchors so we never climbed. this year i had more time to explore and search for climbs. plus now i have gear and a year of experience under my belt so we were not denied. the first day we set up camp, went for a swim and then i left the girls at the lake to go look for a climb. i found a wall with some bolts that looked like it would get evening sun so i went and gathered them up and got our gear. it's small wall with only a couple climbs, one easy and one not so much
we called it the sunset wall
the not so easy climb (looker's left) is missing a hanger on the first bolt
while we were out looking for climbs the next morning the old guy from the camp site across the road put this on our picnic table. jasmyn and skylyn were asleep before 11, but the kids behind us were up talking until past 12. even so, all they were doing was talking and occasionally laughing from inside their tent. glad to have the guy gone.
some of the climbs we found
lots more pictures and words here
