Pillar Waterside Access

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Pillar Waterside Access

Lower area of pillar. Easiest route up is unfortunately through bush diagonally moving lower right to upper left until reaching lower ridge depression. Here there is a very visible slingable hole in the rock for an easy belay.

Overhanging Crown

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Overhanging Crown

View up into the hanging crown of rock roughly 60m above from the small outcrop at the waterline below. Through binos, several bolts can be seen through considerable space exists in between each, some up for 40 feet likely. Between this wall and the rock below is about 25 feet of 5-10m deep water. Bring a boat.

Blue Grotto - Aerial

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Blue Grotto - Aerial

View from atop grotto around fenced viewing area. Visible at water level are several rock outcrops, the left-most of which accesses pillar with an approx. one meter span. A single 60 meter roped (halfed) will not reach larger outcrop shaded under pillar, but can be lowered from bolts further down the slope (though you'll likely touch water if you don't maintain contact with the pillar). Just be creative.

Sign Me Up

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Sign Me Up

This is a self-portrait at the first belay on the sign wall at Harper's Ferry. I'm not sure what I'm doing exactly.

Post-Solo

Average Rating = 5.00/5 Post-Solo

This is my self-portrait after just free-soloing "The Bong." This was my first real solo. Easy route, but it was still got the adrenaline flowing.

Average Rating = 5.00/5 "Soloing in Threes"

Well...I think this started on a bet. There were some girls that kept racing by on a Sea-Doo, so we figured we'd give them something to actually whistle about. That's me on the far end.

Ecstasy Nook

Average Rating = 5.00/5 Ecstasy Nook

Waiting to climb sitting in the little nook at the end of the first pitch of Ecstasy. Climb nearly turned into an epic as some crazy weather moved in.

Off Road

Average Rating = 5.00/5 Off Road

The rough road to Bubba. We thought the "puddle" was only an inch or so deep. Turns out that wasn't the case as water quickly came up through the floor-boards.

Judas (5.10b) via Headlamp

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Judas (5.10b) via Headlamp

Nate cleaning my half-ass lead of "Judas" (5.10b) at night by headlamp. This route put me back in my place after a solid ten minutes trying to start the damn thing.

Snowy JTree

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Snowy JTree

It snowed four inches on us our first night of spring break in the Black Rock Campground. Desert. Spring Break. Snow. WTF?

Overhung Bypass

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Overhung Bypass

Uhhmmm, so a "classic" 5.7+ish...I dunno, but I definitely wasn't expecting a hand-over-hand traverse out to a heel hook during twenty-couple mile-per-hour winds with my last two pieces 15 plus feet behind me. To be honest, maybe it was the conditions but I was not "down" with this route.

Chalked Boulders in Jtree

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Chalked Boulders in Jtree

This is an interesting problem we found walking around in the boulder fields behind Hidden Valley campgrounds. None of us really knew the names or the grades, but it was really fun. The bouldering there was much nicer on the hands than the cracks and longer routes with that real harsh rock. I can't wait to go back.

First Climb of Spring Break

Average Rating = 0.00/5 First Climb of Spring Break

This is me topping out on Dandelion (5.10a) in Hidden Valley on the Old Woman rock. We hadn't consulted the guidebook for this one until afterwards. Had I known its grade beforehand, I probably would've hopped on something a bit easier to begin spring break. First climb of my first time in what the old guys call the "Monument". My girlfriend, DeAnna, was the photographer.

An Ounce of Perception

Average Rating = 5.00/5 An Ounce of Perception

This is me on an Ounce of Perception (5.9+) at Annapolis Rocks in Maryland. I thought it was a really fun route. No pics on lead though, too bad. Guidebook calls it a "classic" and a "must do" for the area. With not a whole lot else around except Faint's Roof itself, I most definitely agree.

Third Summit Party

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Third Summit Party

This is the third summit team on our National Outdoor Leadership School expedition. We had three parties taking different routes up the snowfield. Probably the best overall trip I've ever taken. Good times.

Bouldering at Seneca.  Pushing new horizons.

Average Rating = 1.67/5 Bouldering at Seneca. Pushing new horizons.

This is me trying a little line we found interesting at Seneca Rocks after a looong day of trad climbing. Before this, I had never seen anyone boulder there. We basically rock new styles. The old trad foreigners gave us idiot looks and spoke some gibberish towards us. They want to be us.
