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.
