A rough composite, but it gives a good idea of the bouldering wall I built in the attic above my appartment. Notice the left hand section added, compared to the "Complete!" picture also in my album

Robbovius Falling off the roof

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Robbovius Falling off the roof

I grabbed a dirty sidepull just as I pulled over the roof, ,my hand slipped off, and WHOOOSH!!!! Air time! I fell onto my old E-bay-bought Chouinard #3 camalot, and had to retire it because carabiner friction frayed the clipping able...towards the bottom of the picture you can see the red tricam that popped, three pieces down. Photo was taken by a hiker who'd stopped to spectate...

Robbovius Leading Geryon

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Robbovius Leading Geryon

Eric (Summit) took this picture the evening of 9/02/04, my third lead repeat of the route. It's a fun lead, gobbles up the gear, has a couple nicely commiting moves, the crux is fun, just hard enough for a begining leader like me.

Left of Devil's Pulpit

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Left of Devil's Pulpit

here are the three established routes listed in the BR guide that are pretty easy to identify. This face is rough textured and not-quite-vertical, maybe 2-3 deg slab. the bottom is overhung. Routes start on the ground behind the table boulder. given the description, the route "Geryon" may also be listed here as "left of Devil's Pulpit" thogh that route might go up between the two small trees growing out of the face. I'ts hard to tell

Lookout Rock Slab, from the bottom.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Lookout Rock Slab, from the bottom.

A view of Lookout Rock Slab from the bottom. UNfortunately this face-on view doesn't give any kind of scale, and the bottom outward curve is diminished.

Fist Crack

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Fist Crack

A truncated view of the Fist Crack. The fist crack itself it the dark angled line that passes behind the tree branch in the photo. Unfortunately the field of view on my digital camera is somewhat narrow so I couldn't get the whole thing in.

westermost part of Center Crag, from the bottom.

Average Rating = 2.00/5 westermost part of Center Crag, from the bottom.

This is the overhung area at the start of Pumper No.9, and Center Crag Middle. P-no. 9 goes up the center, and CCM goes up to just to the left, up the rough, crimpy slab. CCM has a difficult bit at the start that involves a bit of chimney/gaston-ing to get up to the slab.
