The last few weeks seem to have flew by. The brotherman and tower crew was around for a bit, and made some significant finds out exploring on the west-side. I was able to head out with them and check it out. We warmed up on a beautiful wall (lacking photos) containing 4 wide cracks and a couple thinner ones. The 4 OW/chimneys went fairly quickly, at 5.8, 5.9, 5.10 and a nice slightly overhanging 5.11 flare. Pat hiked the harder two while I warmed up on the easier two...A great warm up wall for the wide!
Meanwhile Trevor and Ty roped up for a nice looking hand crack up hill, and Andrew, Zana and others scoped for more bouldering potential in the area

The sporadic rain didn't help matters...while Pat gave a number of very strong goes, and came excruciatingly close, the beast remains unconquered...hopefully we will have a chance to get back on it soon. Personally I wish I gave it more attempts...the initial slap down was a bit much for me...though I'm ready to head back for more.
Near the project was a chimney that Trevor climbed up earlier in the day...as the day winded down I decided to head up as well. Good times
Last week I ended up in the Isolated boulders again...finally starting to piece it all together...quite the forest out there...

Got a good session and some good planning in last night at the Lazy V...details to be revealed soon.
