5.8 Knowledge Enema Trad 13m - rated Classic

#5. Did a second lap on TR after Karla and Kevin had been up it too. Attempted in trail runners but decided I needed a better toe for the crack feet, so came down, shoed up, and got er done.

And then it was sunset and time to hike out. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan, K Sullivan, Karla K

5.8 Knowledge Enema Trad 13m - rated Classic

#3. Lead, much cleaner than last time. Still a bit spastic in the middle section, but with the help of a couple yellow and red cams, a green, and a micro cam, I sewed it up pretty well.

Then got to the hanging block, which MOVED and rotated out of the slot. Caution, it seems wedged but it can still be adjusted upwards. Could come loose with erosion and fall out.

Ended up on the 5.7 chains to the right.

Great route, despite the pants-moistening moment near the top. Yikes!! — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan, K Sullivan, Karla K

5.9 Teenage Burnout Sport 15m - rated Very Good

#2. First lead since back in NS. Fun times! Easier than I remembered. Could be because for the opening move, I remembered to go left onto the face, pulling on the horn. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan, K Sullivan, Karla K

5.6 Bye Bye Beep Sport 20m - rated Very Good

Josh’s first multi-pitch climb! Nice job — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan

5.9 Flake'n Sport 55m, 15 - rated Very Good

Did the route in 2 pitches to minimize the rope drag. There is a fantastic ledge at roughly the halfway mark where we set a trad gear anchor (thank you Nick for the good beta about the 2-pitch option), Josh seconded, and Nick came last. Even with the 2 pitches there is quite a bit of drag.

Great route, only reason for 2 stars is the rope drag, otherwise a solid 3-star. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan, Nick Boldt

5.10a Cat and Mouse Sport 11m, 6 - rated Very Good

#3. Spent a bunch of time sorting out a ground anchor for Josh to belay me, which turned out to be very needed as I slipped off just below the last bolt and took a nice, clean whipper. Good times. Reset, went back up, stayed more to the left, and sorted myself out. Josh then cleaned (I just unclipped gear on the lower, but left them in) and Kevin TR'd as we were running out of time. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan, K Sullivan

5.6 Leave it to Beaver Sport 14m, 6 - rated Very Good

#1. Quick TR warmup, after Josh's lead on double stuck clip start. Kevin also led from single stick clip, and cleaned. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan, K Sullivan

5.9 Flake'n Sport 55m, 15 - rated Very Good

#2. First time doing this as a 2 pitch route. Kevin led and set gear anchor with a couple cams and a bolt. Josh came up next and did the unclip/reclip dance. I cleaned. Bit of a moment while Kevin was doing the second pitch as we realized a bunch of the rope was tied up in the anchor and had to redo that and re-anchor Josh with girth hitched sling.

Kevin then went off course towards the top and traversed right, to end up in a crack below the rap rings. Nice variation! — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan, K Sullivan

5.6 Leave it to Beaver Sport 14m, 6 - rated Good

The guidebook says that this climb is a bit hard for the grade (5.6) and I would agree. I would put it somewhere in 5.7-5.8 territory. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan, Nick Boldt

#6. Sean attempted to lead this but took a whipper from above and to the right of the second bolt. Kevin (or Josh?) led it and set up TR; Bianca then mock-led it, putting in extra draws. I then led using her draws and cleaned the whole thing. It took a village. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan, K Sullivan, Climb-Connors, Bianca S, Dave C
