Saturday we climbed in the area known as The Gym. Allison on Trout Fishing, 5.10a
This was an awesome bolted crack called Crack of Dawn, 5.10b.
Bill shows up the laybacking moves on The Crack of Dawn.
What a great (bolted) crack route.
Me working up Morning Stretch, 5.11b. I still stretched even though it was afternoon.
Allison's turn on Morning Stretch, 5.11b.
Another nice bolted crack route called “She's Got a Full Set of Camalots.”
Sunday morning started with a chilly breeze but quickly becaume a super warm day.
We started Sunday at the Cactus Cliff on this gem, Chunky Monkey, 5.10c.
Chunk Monkey starts off with the business with a steep, big roof.
After the roof the climbing is really enjoyable moves in a shallow corner.
After Chunky Monkey and New World Order, 5.10b, we all three took a turn leading this popular route, Funkdamental, 5.11b.
Bill pulls some heel-hooking to stay in balance to clip the bolt.
Fritz on lead of Funkdemental.
Bill in the stellar shallow dihedral of Dihedrus, 5.10c.
Starting up Gravitations, 5.11d. A Cactus Cliff classic. Very nice, strenuous moves that don't let up.
Up higher on Gravitations.
Ruth pulling some layback moves on Dihedrus.
Bill enjoying some great flake moves through the rooflette on Black Man's Burden, 5.10b/c
Last climb of the day, The Alignment, 5.10c
Monday started cool at the Contest Wall of Sand Gulch with delicate moves on Phase Dance, 5.12a.
Monday morning dawned cool but it wasn't enough to stop Ruth from climbing the fabulous 5.9+ route, Enterprise, at Sand Gulch.
All set for the drive home.
