30 second time exposure of the Torrent Falls area outside our cabin on Sunday night
Hey there pretty lady
Chica Bonita Crag. This is "The Dude Abides" (5.11c). The guidebook gives it four stars but we weren't really impressed despite how impressive it looked.
The Dude Rests
Dudettes abide as well
Tough shadows to deal with
Cool, tough moves on slopier-than-they-look holds
After the tougher route we enjoyed a juggy and featured 5.9 called "Ridin' the Short Buzz"
A nice hike out
We made the short walk (with a short bit of minor bushwacking) directly over to the Bob Marley crag
This fine-looking route, "Dog Leg" (5.12a) looked and sounded to appeal to the tall climber. Indeed it did. It was great. The description read "...gigantic moves between horizontals..."
This is one of the gigantic moves. Reasonable for me but bigger for Rick and even bigger for Fritz
Rick busting one of the early big moves
Another big move. A very cool route in that the wall is blank except for this big, intermittient horizontals
