It was really cold before the sun finally made its way around to the Flakeview Area. Started the route frozen, but when I got to the top the sun was beating down on my belayer and it warmed up quick. Attempted The Gift from there but ~30-50 mph winds caused us to back off and tackle Dryvin & Cryin instead. Looking forward to going back on a warmer day.
It's usually been early morning and freezing on the start of this climb, but it was warm today and ran right up it. Placed a .4 about 10' up, starting from just next to the tree at the bottom. Traversed right under the crack, placed a #1 in the crack and the 2 bolts up higher. Great warm-up route.
