2 out of 5 stars Where Two Deserts Meet

Led 4 crack routes this cold day in or near Stirrup Tank. Easy 5.8 by Jtree standards. Placed 3 medium pieces in maybe 5 minutes up this short pitch. Does not get much sun. With James from Sac.

3 out of 5 stars With the kids

First 5.8 for my 12yoD. She was stoked. The lieback was a bit much for my 11yoS, so we'll have to come back. Solid pro, easy belay build, and a walk off descent.

more like a 5.6-5.7, but really fun route. descent is a bit tricky.

3 out of 5 stars the last climb of this trip

slightly overrated. about 1 5.8 move. After that pretty smooth sailing. take a few nuts and a few small cams, much more then that is just weight training.
