2014-04-18 Cannabis Love Generator Crossroads awt Coal Bank Hollow Sport 5.5
Flash Classic RRG route.
2014-04-17 Malice Chocolate Factory Sport 5.12c
Red point I'm speechless. This route is one of my favorites in the Red! The movement is so unique for the area, intriguing and fun. Happy surprise send for me! Beautiful and sustained route! 4g.
2014-04-17 Snarf Victory Chocolate Factory Sport 5.10b
On-sight Didn't really enjoy the bottom, but really cool slopers at the top
2014-04-17 Grandpa Joe Chocolate Factory Sport 5.9
On-sight Really cool features and fun easy climbing!
2014-04-17 EGBG Chocolate Factory Sport 5.10a
On-sight Long and fun!
2014-04-17 Snozzberries The Motherlode Sport 5.12a
On-sight Glad there wasn't a snake in the crack! Nice route Kevin!
2014-04-17 Heart shaped box The Motherlode Sport 5.12c
Red point Such a great day, climbing with Elodie and lots of laughs and "giddy-ness." Two projects in a day, another surprise send! 3g.
2014-04-14 Collision Damage Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.11d
On-sight Nice!
2014-04-14 Gluttony Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.12a
On-sight verry nice
2014-04-14 Believer Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.11b
Red point Fingery but nice climbing
2014-04-14 Belly of the Beast Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.12c
Red point No core! on those bottom moves. Super fun, very nice route. Surprised myself with the send so quickly. 2g.
2014-04-11 Guernica The Gallery (duplicate) Sport 5.11a
On-sight Crimpy crimpy at the bottom, but nice features and climbing above. I suggest a stick clip for the very high first bolt.
2014-04-11 The Preacher's Daughter The Gallery (duplicate) Sport 5.11b
On-sight Nice addition to the wall. Still has a tad more cleaning up to do, but it doesn't detract from the climbing still.
2014-04-11 Mosaic Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.12c
Red point One of the three classic "M" routes ticked off. Flows well. Tried this once in 2010 and did 2nd go this year. A little soft for the grade, but still an incredible climb
2014-04-09 Crosley Bob marley Sport 5.11c
On-sight Nice addition to the wall, fun upper section with a big move!
2014-03-22 The Harvest The Motherlode Sport 5.12d
Red point thanks for the pep talk Johnny! Fell at the chains on my second go, coerced someone into getting my draw back and came back the next day to (barely) do it! Woot! surprise send. 3g.
2014-03-18 Robotic Thumb Chocolate Factory Sport 5.10b
Flash So good!
2014-03-18 Enkidu Chocolate Factory Sport 5.11c
Flash This thing has a tufa! Cool crux move, gotta commit to the heel.
2014-03-13 Herd Mentality Coal Bank Hollow Sport 5.12c
Flash Thanks for the beta Eleanor! Another great route at Solar Collector. Maybe a little soft for the grade? I just don't have the perspective yet...
2014-03-11 The Mule Military Wall and Left Flank Sport 5.12c
Red point Flash? Redpoint? Debatable. Either way, this overlooked route is amazing! So psyched to do it first go. I tried it once in 2010 with a bum shoulder and came down at the crux, so I didn't know/remember anything. The break is sort of exciting as you try to mantel while pumped up into an undercling. Great route!
2014-03-09 Crown of Thorns Brightside, Red River Gorge Sport 5.11c
On-sight Very good with some varied climbing.
2014-03-05 The Decline of Western Civilization Gold Coast Sport 5.10a
On-sight Short, nice addition to the wall.
2014-03-05 Ethics Police Coal Bank Hollow Sport 5.11d
Red point Whew! Really fought hard for this one. Beginning of the season and getting back in shape is tough, but I was psyched to do this first go of the year.
2014-02-20 Temperate Zone Utah Hills - Warm-up Wall Sport 5.11b
Flash Yikes! Hard for the grade. Glad I looked at the starting holds while lowering from the other route
2014-02-20 Torrid Zone Utah Hills - Warm-up Wall Sport 5.12a
Red point Really nice route with sustained crimping and movement. This is a small, but nice little wall. 2g.
2014-02-20 Tropical Depression Utah Hills - Warm-up Wall Sport 5.10a
On-sight Wish it were longer!
2014-02-18 Orion Soul asylum Sport 5.10b
On-sight cool water runnel at the top! This is the left most route in this alcove.
2014-02-18 Petrified Soul asylum Sport 5.10c
On-sight Stem-tastic! Cool features on sharp rock, nice and long too.
2014-02-18 Unknown Soul asylum Sport 5.10d
On-sight This is the route in the alcove between Orion and Petrfied, the bolts stop about half way up the wall (why?) but can be easily joined up with the route to the left for an enjoyable, long pitch.
2014-02-18 Vision Seeker Soul asylum Sport 5.12b
Red point Shares the same start as "One Taste" but breaks left after a few bolts. Much more defined crux than its neighbor and exiting the crux there are slim pickings with a tiny, tiny pocket that is finger size dependent. Really enjoyed the top of the route, after the break and coming out of the upper pod. Super cool. 2g.
2014-02-18 Soul Train Soul asylum Sport 5.12a
On-sight Good rock and climbing that keeps building after the break, 11d/12a?
2014-02-16 Blood Drive Soul asylum Sport 5.10c
On-sight Super long, nice climb up the "tower"
2014-02-16 Lost Soul Soul asylum Sport 5.12c 5.12b
On-sight Favorite route at the wall thus far, fun climbing on beautiful rock! I tried the straight up variation with the snake eyes, but didn't want to tear my tendons, so I followed all the chalk out left on the better holds. Feels maybe a little contrived to force the route straight, but the moves still looked cool. Doing the straight up variation would probably make this route 12c (maybe harder?). Either way, great route!
2014-02-16 Nine lives Soul asylum Sport 5.11c 5.11b
On-sight Very nice route - the book describes it as a committing crux, but it has been rebolted and climbs really well.
2014-02-16 White soul power  Soul asylum Sport 5.12a
On-sight Jug-a-haul! Straightforward, pumpy and fun. Wish it were longer.
2014-02-15 Doppelganger Soul asylum Sport 5.11b
2014-02-15 Arch rival Soul asylum Sport 5.10d 5.10c
On-sight Nice slab climbing.
2014-02-15 One taste Soul asylum Sport 5.12b
On-sight Really cool climbing on huecos - I think this is my first 12b onsight.
2014-01-26 Whiners Circle Pequop Sport 5.11a
On-sight Not my favorite at the crag, but minus one kind of hard/awkward move, this route is good.
2014-01-26 G-man Fungus Pequop Sport 5.12a
Flash Really cool! Did this without any real beta but I vaguely watched a couple of people climb it, wish i could take it otherwise. Very nice route!
2014-01-26 Garbage Truck Pequop Sport 5.12c
Red point Really fun/cool to try hard on my onsight-go! Wasn't sure I liked it, but I'm glad I tried again to figure out better beta, because this route climbs really well! Also has some long fall potential! 3g.
2014-01-25 Cigarettes Pequop Sport 5.10c
On-sight Nice and run out. Probably a bit scary if this is close to your limit. Long good route.
2014-01-25 Pork Chop Pequop Sport 5.10d
On-sight Same start as Cigarettes, but much shorter and goes straight up. Some say a little easier too??
2014-01-19 Jurassic Park Pequop Sport 5.11d
Flash Really cool traversing jug/crack line, to an upper face without many obvious holds!
2014-01-19 Brownies Pequop Sport 5.11d
Flash A little heady near the middle...
2014-01-19 Block and Tackle Pequop Sport 5.10c
On-sight A little sharp and could use a little cleaning up, but not bad!
2014-01-19 V-Twin Pequop Sport 5.11b
Flash Very nice! I didn't think it was too bad with beta, but I could see how it could be tricky without it! Neat upper section.
