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
Flash maybe even a 3?

2014-11-01 Regular Right Fork Boulder V2
Flash yikes, kind of a move going for the sloper lip.
2014-10-31 Skins Game Joe's Valley, UT Boulder V3+ V3
Red point big move off the ground.
2014-10-31 Stand Up Comedian Right Fork Boulder V4
Red point very nice!
2014-10-26 Smoother Pop Tire Cave Sport 5.12c
Red point Smoothie. I love smoother or chunky smoothies.
2014-10-26 Birdshit Twister Pop Tire Cave Sport 5.12a
On-sight The name doesn't do this route justice, a little weird in places, but doesn't detract from the route. The rock at the top is cool but a little suspect and scary. A good second or third warm-up.
2014-10-25 Extreme Makeover Pop Tire Cave Sport 5.12b
On-sight A wee more pumpy than I expected
2014-10-25 Warm-up #1 (5.10) Pop Tire Cave Sport 5.10b
On-sight This route is to the left of the cave. Really nice!
2014-10-25 Warm-up #2 (5.11) Pop Tire Cave Sport 5.11a
On-sight Just to the right of the 5.10. Impressed so far with this area...
2014-10-12 Popcorn Maple Canyon Sport 5.12b
Flash Maybe a little easier than Daddy, but I was still pumped, so once again, sixes.
2014-10-12 Daddy Maple Canyon Sport 5.12b
Flash Onsight. Flash. I don't know...and it doesn't matter, but why do people spew beta when you didn't ask for it? Either way, really fun and I probably needed their help anyway. :) It's cool how it climbs out a relatively steep roof with such massive cobbles!
2014-10-12 The Black Waterfall Maple Canyon Sport 5.11a
On-sight Eww. Maybe because I couldn't feel my hands, but definitely did not dig this one. Maybe 11b? it's hard to tell, based on my unenjoyable experience...
2014-10-12 Sweet Peas Maple Canyon Sport 5.12b 5.11d
On-sight What a brutal ending from such fun, mindless jug climbing before. Really nice though! The grade on this is weird...11d/12a??
2014-10-05 Jesus Freak Maple Canyon Sport 5.12d 5.12c
On-sight So much stinkin' fun! A must do. Reminded me a lot of the Red with the length and pumpy-ness. Tried super hard, made a lot of noise and almost impaled some mouth-opened gawking kids with a wee bit of choss. Yikes, tourists! Wish I could claim it as my first 12d in a day, but it just doesn't feel right. SO fun though!
2014-10-05 Devil's Plaything Maple Canyon Sport 5.11b 5.10d
On-sight watch out for the pigeons!
2014-10-05 Grip Tease Maple Canyon Sport 5.12a
Red point Verrry nice! Would make a nice second warm-up. 2g.
2014-09-24 Something Wild Cannabis Crag, American Fork Canyon, Utah Sport 5.12d
Red point Love the intricacies of this slab! And it's not dicey at all like the book describes, just hang a long draw on bolt 3, and you'll be good! 6g.
2014-09-14 Downtown Brown American Fork Canyon Sport 5.11c
Flash Nice addition to the crag Clay!

2014-09-13 Bolts Not Bitches Maple Canyon Sport 5.12c
Red point Too many bolts, so I'm skipping those bitches! It's all about the right toe/heel hook, banana-nut muffins and coconut water! 3g, 1d.
2014-09-13 Downloader Maple Canyon Sport 5.11a
On-sight watch out for flying pigeons!
2014-09-13 Watermelon Sugar Maple Canyon Sport 5.11c
On-sight Very fun, good movement and nice warm-up! Supposedly harder if you don't go out right to the obvious jugs
2014-09-07 Cobble in the Sky Maple Canyon Sport 5.12c 5.12b
Red point Fell low at the first crux and lowered, and let Pawel hang the draws :) Wise move, I `was able to flash the rest of the route. 2g(ish).

2014-09-07 Don't Feed the Monkeys Maple Canyon Sport 5.7
On-sight Fun, long route
2014-09-07 Lip Venom Maple Canyon Sport 5.11c 5.11a
On-sight Fun! And WAY easier than the 11b at the other end of the crag.
2014-09-07 Angry Inch Maple Canyon Sport 5.11c 5.11b
On-sight Hard for the grade and pumpy!
2014-09-06 In Cobble we trust Maple Canyon Sport 5.11b
On-sight This will be a nice route once the dirt/sand cleans up.
2014-09-01 Al's Diner The Fins Sport 5.13a
Red point Verrry niiicce. Surprised and shocked that I stuck the big move so quickly. 3g.
2014-08-31 Mothership The Fins Sport 5.12c
Red point Nice movement with a thin crux section. Maybe would have done 2nd go, if the crosly foot I stupidly picked hadn't blown. Oh well, nice to do it again - shares anchors with Bushido. 3g.
2014-08-31 Water from Stone The Fins Sport 5.11b
On-sight A little akward, but not awful. Glad I did it, but probably won't do again for a long time. Definitely better warm-ups around.
2014-08-30 Solstice The Fins Sport 5.12b
Flash Good movement on better rock than it looks. Maybe a little soft for a 12b at the Fins?
2014-08-24 Walk the plank The Narrows, Utah Sport 5.11a
On-sight Walk it or jump! Climbs better than it looks
2014-08-24 Reloaded The Narrows, Utah Sport 5.11a 5.10d
Flash Ewww.
2014-08-24 The Eleven The Narrows, Utah Sport 5.11c
On-sight yea! A little spicy for the grade with some bad feet, but the climbing itself is good. Insecure pod, cool transition out and almost feels like tufa climbing to a weird little finish.
2014-08-23 Shadowplay American Fork Canyon Sport 5.12d
Red point Really happy that I got on this one, thought it was brilliant! Powerful start, to easy climbing to a roof to slopers and excitement galore! Oh yea, do be careful of the choss at the start...but don't let it dissuade you from getting on this gem! 2g.

On-sight Nice face climbing at the start
2014-08-22 Deep EndĀ  American Fork Canyon Sport 5.11b 5.11a
On-sight So good! A little polished, but it doesn't detract from the climbing. Good movement. Angle is deceptive as the book suggests
2014-08-22 Litmus Test American Fork Canyon Sport 5.11c
On-sight Fun! Really enjoyed the first half (a little runnout, if this grade is around your limit) and the roof move isn't as bad as the book describes.
