Ben was jonesin' to get back on the stone--with the rising temps and sunshine being the main draw to Spring bouldering. I wanted to re-explore one "zone in the making" to see what else lurked in the fair Klettergarden atop Homestake.
Ben warming up on the first climb of the day
Me, humping another arete
Sending a tall one
Same boulder as prior, the thinner line
Pimpin' the crimpin'
Power lay-backing by the tall guy
Deciding how best to tackle the hand-crack roof problem
Finishing up the day on a super-classic double finger-crack pebble
This area lies in between two previously established "mini-zones"--making up a new, large Zone accessed from different roads/points.
How's that arete on the opposite side of the last boulder/photo?
Looks like a good day for sure!
Pretty decent arete--I looked at it quickly, but we had to get back to the familys...
