Now that the good climbing weather is here.......yippee!!

Totally agree - this is onsight weather, baby! The season is just getting started.

ancient gunks tradition: can't start the 10s til you've dispatched those 5.9 grudges...

Crap. Well, mebbe that explains my flail-fest on Retribution , I still need to go back and polish off (pun intended) The Spring.

I've made pretty good headway on my tick list, highlights include:

Onsights - Pink Laurel (yesterday ), Apoplexy, p1 Birdie Party, p3 Grand Central, Alphonse, Classy, Farewell to Arms, Shockley's (finally), p2&3 of Drunkards, and an unnamed 5.7 crack climb at PK

Leads - MF, Bonnie's Direct, Absurdland (again), p2 SoEO, Broken Sling (blew the onsite ), Hyjecks, Arrow (again), lotsa other stuff

Fun follows/TR's - Bonnie's Direct, The Spring, CCK Direct, Grand Central, Criss Cross Direct, Retribution, Manly Yes, The Winter, Mother's Day Party, Higher Stannard, Ape and Essence, To Be or Not To Be (everything but the crux slap ), Friends and Lovers, lotsa others

Topping my short list for the rest of this season are:
CCK Direct, The Spring, Le Teton, Double Crack in 1p, Retribution.

To Be or Not To Be (everything but the crux slap

Did you get the crimpy crux at the top?

If you've climbed everything else, you'll soon get the whole thing.

I think what Murph meant to say was, "Everything UP TO the crux slap".

Well then, after he nails that crux move, he only has another 40-50 feet of sustained 5.10-5.11 climbing.



FWIW - there's a way to do the lower crux move almost completely statically.

I don't usually give myself a tick list or season goals, I just want to climb and enjoy myself at any grade...but something that I've considered for over 2 years now is whether I will ever get up the nerve to lead Modern Times. I've followed it OK, but that's one scarey lead - committing to the crux moves, and either finding the energy to put a piece in while traversing the overhangs or taking the risk to keep moving and not placing anything until the pumpy part is over. I'm an overcautious and wimpy leader - I don't like to do anything that will scare me too much.

Well, today just felt like a good day, and I led Modern Times! I'm so happy!

It has been done entirely au natural - no clothes whatsoever, no shoes, chalk or rope. Are you up for that?
