Powerline Revisit

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.

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!

Cheers!

Pretty decent arete--I looked at it quickly, but we had to get back to the familys...
