Becton Reed on the Prowl

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Becton Reed on the Prowl

Becton Reed climbs the 5.10d route up the Prowl that divides the Rose Bud and Big Horn walls at Sitting Bull Falls. Great light and a pulley system got me some great angles. Top it off, a swim in the upper pool to cool things off.

Toph gets Eliminated!

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Toph gets Eliminated!

Topher Bentley blows the onsight of Eliminator, a slightly overhanging hand crack next to Elk Slabs. The cruxy upper section spits him out like a watermelon seed. He finished the ascent in style with a stunning rock humping move. It was awesome.

Big Runout on Big Bite

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Big Runout on Big Bite

I believe this was Russell Hooper on Big Bite. Unremarkable photo, I know. Thing is, he climbed this route, skipped the first two bolts that are shared with S-Wall. Only used the last bolt as protection. He was easily 80 feet off the deck before he had any protection. He made it look like a cakewalk though. Fall Gathering 2006.

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Chad Staying Focused and Composed

Too bad my focus was a little off. Chad getting "the most pumped ever at the Wichitas" working on Aerial. Seen here clipping the 3rd bolt on what many call "best sport route in the state". A great weekend with scorching heat had us hiding in the shade. A nice lead for Chad.

Borrowing everyones quickdraws he knew. Then pre setting every route that his collection could occupy. Kevin is seen here setting up for the improbable Tower Run! While setting he On Sited every route but three. A few days of hard earned rest. He returned and redpointed every line on the tower in a single day. Simply Insane!

The last weekend of Spring Break took us to Datil onto the Tower. Drew working on one of his latest projects before the summer sweeps him away to Utah. Great line, and I suspect he will get this send at the end of the summer.

How Luck was I?

Average Rating = 3.60/5 How Luck was I?

I cannot overstate how lucky I was! I show up to J-Tree without a climbing partner, expecting to climb in a team of three, only to find Deb. She and I clicked together on the first route, and climbed together for the rest of the week. Her smile was infectious, and I fed off her energy, propelling me to complete routes I feared too difficult. I could not do anything but smile looking down and seeing her giving me a flawless belay. Here she follows me up Taurus during our most productive day of climbing. I will never forget that time out in the desert.

Sunset at Mount Scott

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Sunset at Mount Scott

We ran the TR at Dreamboat Annie a few times. I topped out in boots on the marginal arm/body offwidth, and scooted back to the car for the camera to shoot this sunset. What a fantastic weekend we had, great weather on Saturday climbing at Leaning Tower, cold Sunday, so we hiked into Panther Canyon and looked for the Icebox till it warmed up for a trip to Scott to climb. Then on to Meers for their famous burgers...tasty!

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Toph halfway up the Girdle!

A little run out start on really easy climbing turned to this angled crack. Rope drag was....a drag, but the climb was very good as Lisa and I followed to clean and collect all that booty! We scored two pieces an awkardly easy to pull nut, and a frustrating #1 new style Rock Empire (being my first booty ever). I love me some booty!

Using the crimps looses a grade, but that just gives him a good reason to go back and stick the lunge. Nice hard climbing by Matt here.

Scott got the OS for the only problem on this boulder with 3 star status. It was a great line that was not too long and had some very nice movements. This move was one of his favorites for the day. Crimpy!

Drew Cummings sweeping up on this weird route / traverse. It wasn't a bad line, just not what one would expect at ET. I did not particularly like it but others enjoyed it. Different Strokes.

Scott warms up on a 10c? Crazy? No, that is what happens when you listen to Toph's warm up suggestions. He just doesn't understand the word moderate! Slopey down low, juggy up high, it was a nice line.

May 21, 2005. Here I am working on my first onsight of a trad 5.8. My spotter / belayer Topher looks on skeptically as I cautiously place my first piece of pro. What followed was a gruntfest till I turned the lip and fired in another piece. Next stop the chains.

On Top of the World!

Average Rating = 3.64/5 On Top of the World!

My cousin Jason after he tops out Spaced. I lead the 1st and 3rd pitches and Topher got the 2nd. I think the short runout I did turing the first lip was more a head game than actually being dangerous. I am just not sure I could swim loaded down with all that gear. This was my fourth and fifth trad leads and my first onsite of a 5.8. The dried lichen on the wall did not inspire confidence. Space Balls looks awesome, we are going back for that one.

Drew Hanging Tough on Tribal War

Average Rating = 3.57/5 Drew Hanging Tough on Tribal War

The first time I ever saw Drew climb was upon this very route 1 year and 1 month ago. At the time he was still working on the beta. Last weekend he was at it again and pulling hard. This shot is from his first attempt of the day when he failed to stick the upper crux move. His second attempt he got his first send, blowing it all out leaving nothing in the tank. Onlookers were thoroughly impressed by the feat. More pictures from the weekend: http://www.kodakgallery.com/I.jsp?c=dpp37uj.o8zm8fz&x=0&y=8vxpmf

Average Rating = 3.27/5 Scott starting his latest project Ghost Dancers

Scott was unleashed on his latest project 'Ghost Dancers' at 12a. For this trip it was working out beta and getting familiar with the route. The sick overhang for the first 4 bolts is burly, right up Scott's alley. Here he hits the scary long reaching left and then bumped it up 8 inches for the clipping hold. Pulling hard!

Unknown hottie on Fistful!

Average Rating = 3.40/5 Unknown hottie on Fistful!

I climbed up the 3rd class ramp and clipped myself into the belay station for Faded Love to get a good angle to shoot my buddies climbing at Upper Virgin. A group on Fistful was climbing and offered a perfect opportunity to shoot from above so I leaned out and took some shots. If anyone can identify the climber or belay partner I would like to credit her or him.

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Bringing in 2005 the right way!

New years eve! We climbed Fish-n-Clips and then bailed off the last pitch of Wolf Will Survive because it got dark. Some veggie burritos at Posadas, some Carta Blanca, and some Mexican Water (TEQ) we were set for the night. Here you can see our crew strolling up the road to visit the base of Space Boys and watch Italian guys shoot fireworks. I'm the one in the middle with the beer! The characters are from your left to right Drew, Nate, Scott, Tim (barely), Me, Taylor, Patrick, and Mark. What a blast we had if you can't tell from my facial expression.

Grinnin from ear to ear on the summitt! Sure we hit Supernova the day before but Fish and Clips seemed to be more satisifying. Maybe because I led two of the three pitches. That middle 11 is nasty and pumpy. The moves are there so it will go soon enough. We tried to link up on Wolf Will Survive before it got dark but without headlamps the 4th pitch escaped us and we rapped off in the dark. Fun!
