2015-02-16 Darkness and Charm, P1 The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11c 5.11b
On-sight Very enjoyable. Much easier than the one on the left and right of it. Think this will be my "crimpy" warm up route in the future
2015-02-16 Raven Nation, P1 The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11a
On-sight yaya! Fun times. Good warm up with big holds and nice movement
2015-02-15 Homeostasis The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11b
Flash meh - a little funk, but still worth doing
2015-02-15 Honeycomb The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.13a 5.12d
Flash Surprised I pulled this one off - big thanks to Senja and Rich for excellent beta! Thumberclings!!
2015-02-15 Watery Tart The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11b
On-sight Very nice climbing - needs to have the jug that has been attempted to be reinforced either knocked off or glued better
2015-02-15 Khaleesi The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11d
On-sight Another, very long and sustained route up the blue vert/slab wall
2015-02-14 The Ballrog The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11b 5.11a
On-sight Total choss pile with good movement. Did my community service by accidentally cleaning up a hold or two on this one. Do this one once you've done all the other routes! I think this will be good once it cleans up some more.
2015-02-14 Homo Faber The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.12d 5.12c
Flash Nice, varied climbing that begins to kick in at the top. Milk the rests on the way!
2015-02-14 Eminent Domain The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.10a
On-sight juggy!
2015-02-14 Divine Vessel, P1 The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11b
On-sight nice warm up
2015-02-14 Excaliber The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11c
On-sight Whew. Sustained and interesting climbing up beautiful blue limestone!
2015-02-08 Felicity, P1 The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11d
On-sight nice rounded features with a little funky dihedral section, another great warmup!
2015-02-08 Mantis The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.12c
On-sight I was praying like a mantis that I wouldn't fall off. It worked, somehow I managed my way through the crux and surprisingly the mantle at the top too. Definitely pulled out some try hard on this one.
2015-02-08 Crusade The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.10b
On-sight Meh - better routes to do but still worth doing at least once
2015-02-08 Last Supper The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11b
On-sight Nice warmup!
2015-02-07 The Serf The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.12a
On-sight crappy, crimpy start leads to fun climbing above! the cruxes are a little awkward and funky, but is totally worth doing. it just keeps going and going and going and going and going! Going to the 2nd anchor doesn't add much and is a little more sharp, but is still worth doing to the top at least once! Get on it!
2015-02-07 Who's your daddy The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.10c
On-sight
2015-02-07 The Madness The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11d
On-sight Fantastic climbing through churt bands and the crack. Think I would have enjoyed this even more if I wasn't so tired. Really nice though!
2015-02-07 City Dweller The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11c
On-sight continuous up beautiful blue rock
2015-02-07 The way of the peaceful bolter The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.12a 5.11d
On-sight I had SO much fun on this route! Maybe a little soft in the grade, but also maybe my favorite route at the grail so far...debate is out! I love the frisbee hold too!
2015-02-07 The way of the peaceful warrior The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.12b
On-sight Definitely a step up from it's neighbor! but also great climbing/movement with a few more little crimps thrown in there. One bolt would be hard to hang on this thing
2015-02-07 Mandate for the masses The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.10d
On-sight once again, another route worth doing!
2015-01-31 Don't Believe the Hype Virgin River Gorge Sport 5.12a
Red point Believe the hype!!
2015-01-25 Orange Juice Pequop Sport 5.10b
Flash TURD. I almost quit climbing.
2015-01-25 Frack Pequop Sport 5.10b
On-sight Nice route with big jugs. I think this route was a mistake in the guide (10d), disagree if you wish
2015-01-25 Frick Pequop Sport 5.10d
Flash this route needs more bolts. nice otherwise with powerful moves between good holds.
2015-01-25 Coffee Pequop Sport 5.11c 5.11b
Flash Much nicer than the turd route next to it. and easier. although the grade may be a little inflated. flows nicely
2015-01-24 Rattlesnake Corner Pequop Sport 5.10d
On-sight yay! no rattlesnakes!
2015-01-24 Petticoat Junction Pequop Sport 5.11a
On-sight the holds just appear! wala!
2015-01-24 G-Whiz Pequop Sport 5.11a
On-sight a journey! whew. climbing in pequop is hard. this doesn't climb like your average sport route and is pretty thought-provoking.
2015-01-19 Dirt Cowboy Virgin River Gorge Sport 5.12c
Red point I love cowboys. And I like dirt. Put the two together and you've got this thing! 4g.
2015-01-18 Madame Butterfly The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.10a
Flash another good one with some cool moves up high
2015-01-18 Freezer Burn The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11b
On-sight Long, techy route
2015-01-18 Swamp King, P1 The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.11d
On-sight My skin at this point in the day was over it. The second pitch looked stellar, excited to go back and get on that.
2015-01-18 Mesquiter The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.12a
On-sight The mesquiter drew blood. Nice long route with varied climbing.
2015-01-18 Merely a flesh wound The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.10c
On-sight Choss central. But it was a really fun route that was characterized by big holds unlike the rest of the wall - so it was a nice end of the day mindless pitch.
2015-01-18 Greyhound The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.12a
Flash Aesthetic and nice route! Pockets on a slab.
2015-01-10 Joe Six Pack Virgin River Gorge Sport 5.13a
Red point Brilliant! The best 5.13 I've climbed! This route is sooo good and intricate! Big thanks to Clay for the epic belays/catches; Sean for partnering up with me; and Kim and Ellen for adopting me for the day! (8t)
2015-01-06 Brutus Virgin River Gorge Sport 5.11c 5.11b
Red point The most epic and impossible 11b ever! Thanks to Clay and Rosie for believing in my ability to summit this route, since I had wrote this thing off forever. This route could deserve a harder grade but to preserve the character of the VRG - I'll take it at 11b.
2015-01-02 Pilgrimage Chuckawalla Sport 5.12a
Red point Bringing in the New Year with Leah Scott!
2014-11-08 Baldwin Bash Right Fork Boulder V7 V6
Red point Come on and grrr! It's cool how bouldering goes from not doing moves, to desperately doing moves, to more consistently doing them and almost sending, then being too tired to send, and then sending! Surprised this happened at the end of the day.
2014-11-08 Rabbit Fur Right Fork Boulder V6
Red point Holy top out! Thanks to my encouraging crew of spotters I managed to finish beach whale up over the lip, and I probably peed my pants too. It was a now or never deal. Remember grrr, don't purrr. Oh, and I LOVED the first moves of this one.
2014-11-04 Eurosize Right Fork Boulder V6
Red point aye! A bit soft for the grade. Thanks for being patient with me Pawel!
2014-11-04 Mono E Mono Right Fork Boulder V4

2014-11-01 Skyy Right Fork Boulder V0
Flash not sure you even need hands for this one...
2014-11-01 Devastator Right Fork Boulder V4
Red point
2014-11-01 Whiskey Sweats Right Fork Boulder V3 V1
On-sight this seemed too easy for the grade...maybe I did something wrong?
2014-11-01 Obscelete Right Fork Boulder V2
On-sight Super!
