The Batholith... the gift that keeps on giving!

Tom and I had discussed visiting this spot for a long time.  It seemed very promising.  So with some time on my hands and under partly cloudy skies I went with out solo this Saturday with some reasonable expectations and was not disappointed at all. The Batholith just keeps on giving just like the Jelly of the month club! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1K8-kNuDgoA

After making the terrible approach of  roughly 100 yds. I came across a couple cool hallways loaded with potential and really bomber rock sorry no pics of those.  After a bit I decided I should shoot some photos.
Corners
Then I worked my way toward where I thought the better blocks would be... it was nice to be right.


Um yeah!!!
Projecting
Large big block in the trees

Tall seam lines anyone?


Wide, layback or bear hug?
Nice tall crack with some more options

All still unexplored

All in all it was a great day.  I was able to send about 10 different problems.  There were so many climbable blocks and it is super concentrated.  This area is pretty massive it is gonna take awhile to figure out how big it actually is...  I am really psyched on the potential.
