slightly unproductive "weekend" at the gunks..

didn't get going til 10am sunday. epic fail on Baby (not my choice, hate that fucking route), partner failed and got cam stuck so i couldn't downclean/bail, took a while for him to finally clean it. Did Maria P1 and 2. Then did Strickley's to Shockelys. partner wanted to go to town to Rock and Snow and dinner so ended with the sun stilll up :P 5 pitches blahhhh...

sunday.. started better. got up P1 modern times to High E. Took longer than I wanted since my partner was talking a girl next to us through cleaning gear since she had no clue. The brilliant leader also placed a Ball nut... yea.. P1 High E... ball nut.. with a noob 2nd. ps it's still there. Partner took forever on High E. Rapped off and went down to do Bonnies Direct. Had to wait for folks to clean their shit off Bonnies. TRin'g off the intermediate anchor after the first roof. Led bonnies.. love that P1. Partner fell getting up to the first roof and couldn't get back on the rock. I seem to not weigh enough to unload an ATC guide (any tips in person would be great.. visual learner) Had to have a parter behind us come pull him over to the rock so he could unweight the rope and lower off. took forever. In retrospect i should have tried to untie and lower my end of the rope for something for him to either yard up on or swing over with. I plan to use my Cinch for top belaying a lot more now

Headed back towards Uberfall and did P1 Columbia to P2/3 Madamn G's Columbia was quite an interesting challenge haha I disagree with Seth's assessment that it's G not PG. MG's was good as always.. steep jug haulin'. Rapped off and called it a day. 6 pitches.. still not the 10 i was hoping for when we started out. I wanted to do Snooky's after Columbia but the light was fading.
