5.7 Cocksure Sport 13mAverage

#4. Ran up this in trail runners to see if I could. Doable, with some commitment. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan,K Sullivan,Karla K

5.6 Bye Bye Beep Sport 20mVery Good

#1. Karla led, I ran up in my trail runners to clean it. Doobie doo, same ol' same old. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan,K Sullivan,Karla K

5.9 Teenage Burnout Sport 15mVery 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

5.8 Knowledge Enema Trad 13mClassic

#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

5.8 Knowledge Enema Trad 13mClassic

#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

5.9 Cat and Mouse Sport 11m, 6Classic

Relatively easy for the grade though you can make it really for your self and wind up falling off. Good luck. — with K Sullivan,Nick Boldt

5.6 Leave it to Beaver Sport 14m, 6Average

It is an ok climb, a little sand bagged though. — with K Sullivan,Nick Boldt

5.9 Flake'n Sport 55m, 15Classic

So I guess I know what this climb is like but for the last twenty feet I have no idea for we some how ended up on phat Tuesday which was interesting. But for the part of it that I did it was good — with K Sullivan,Nick Boldt

5.10a Cat and Mouse Sport 11m, 6Good — with Nick Boldt, Joshua Matsell Sullivan.

5.7 Leave it to Beaver Sport 14m, 6Good

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

5.9 Flake'n Sport 55m, 15Very 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

#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, 6Very 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

5.10a Cat and Mouse Sport 11m, 6Very 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

5.8 The Assassination of Blunderbore Sport 15m, 5Very Good

#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

5.6 Murder Hole Sport 12m, 5Good

#2. Lead. Same ol'. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan,K Sullivan,Climb-Connors,Bianca S,Dave C

#5. Kevin's lead, Josh's second/clean. Then I ran up it on TR. Great climb, should give this a whirl as a trad lead some time. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan,K Sullivan,Climb-Connors,Bianca S,Dave C

5.7 Up the Beanstalk Sport 11m, 3Good

#1. Bianca led, everyone did a lap, I cleaned. — with Joshua Matsell Sullivan,K Sullivan,Climb-Connors,Bianca S,Dave C

#4. Josh's first 5.8 lead. He crushed it. — with Climb-Connors,Joshua Matsell Sullivan,K Sullivan,Bianca S,Dave C

5.6 Bye Bye Beep Sport 20mVery Good

#1. Usual warmup. Did a second lap in my trail shoes to clean the route. — with Climb-Connors

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

#3. Better than last time (it was drier and less dirty) but still needs a lot more traffic to become a nice route. NOT a 5.6, but definitely fun. Scraped off more dirt on the route near the first 2 or 3 bolts. Stick clipped the start, stood on bolt #1 to clip bolt #2 as I wasn't feeling the in-crack stance. So not technically a send, but hey.

Sean jugged from bolt 1 past 3, and climbed the rest. — with Climb-Connors

5.8 The Old In-and-Out Sport 20m, 6Classic

#2. Drier than last time, but harder at the top. — with Climb-Connors
