And just 'cause I'm not around as much, I don't see why we have to retire this thread.

Plenty of people out there not climbing at the Gunks.

Here's what I was up to yesterday. Trying to get ready for a Valley trip with Chazman. The Power Wall along Malibu Creek. Climber on left is hanging on Power Station 10b, while ex-Gunkie Doug Hunter gets ready to lead Rolling Blackout 10d.

While there are seven good sport routes on the Power Wall, Rolling Blackout turned out to be by far the best outing. To the right of the first bolt, we found a fun V2 start that sends you straight up into the crux of RB.

Good pocket pulling! Bring tape.
