LS, very glad you got your mojo going again. It always comes down to the people you do things with I have found. Keep that Dingus guy. He's doing good with you.

Your Anti-Halloween Bouldering TR

Bing bang boom we're surprised by lingering snow at 6000 feet. Duh!


Partner didn't seem to mind.


Lickity split I was all, like, ready! It doesn't take much, with me. A come hither look from the sultry Sierra Crest will do it. So will a partner who says, 'let's go climbing!' Tee hee.


So we snuck into Disneyland to climb the Matterhorn!


Really?

Would you trust this man?


He's a bit of a case, nawmean?


Thinking about using this one on the brochure cover page.


To celebrate victory over 7-foot rock! Cause I'm that hard.

It's ironic some of RC.coms longest running users would meet in the beginner forum..... noobs. Cool

BTW reading some of the initial posts was good even if it was a resurrection, Food for thought for a problem of my own right now. Thanks.

Well the adventure continues dudinit?

How about a little Chipmunk Flat action?


LS volunteers for the sharp end.


Its a bit of a run to the first placement. Well there's a lower one well off to the side but it introduces significant rope drag later on so she opted to skip it.


Hmmm, what now?


Big cam, of course!


Clip! Ah..... safe for now!


She led this route once before.


At this point the route trends up right to continue with the wider cracks. It becomes very easy after one move to enter the upper cracks. Its a good, moderate/easy climb.


But she didn't go that way, on that fated first lead.


No she went this way, opting for a thin crack, dirty-looking crack. She had no small cams that day, long story short when you tell your partner 'I'll bring the rack" he assumes you mean THE WHOLE RACK, lol. Well, she wanted it, she got it! A bit of a meltdown she said. But you know what? She got up that thing clean after fiddling in some wanky nuts.


Well this time she floated it. Small cams included! :D


Nice view of SPH Valhalla from the belay ledge.


Well done LS! WELL DONE!


So what's next?


Sometimes this game of ghosts will bring a tear to your eye, nawmean?


Back at camp?


Many TALL tales were told


So two days later our gang found ourselves in the same vicinity


And I foolishly asked LS if she minded belaying me on her route. The reason I was stoked to lead it is that when I followed her lead the previous time? I felt a bit, um, tenuous, shaky even. So I wanted to reconcile those feelings on the sharp end.


Well guess what? I got up the thing. I also fell at the crux!


And my partners soon followed.


Scuffy liked it.


LS was happy to arrest my plummet.


The descent involves a bit of 4th class down climbing.


We finished the afternoon top roping some slab.


Led me up a crack. Caught my fall when I tried to repeat her 'feet.' The she drove me home. What's not to love?


Noobs can't climb!


Thanks LS!
