2014-07-03 Dry Times Maple Canyon Sport 5.12a
Red point Freaking awesome! Nice climbing with a slow pump. Technicality makes this a redpoint since it shares the top with Orgasmo. Otherwise, first go!
2014-07-02 Deliverance Maple Canyon Sport 5.12c
Red point Nice route with one boulder problem. 2g.
2014-06-16 Protozoa American Fork Canyon Sport 5.11c
On-sight Nice warmup in the dihedral. Maybe a little soft for the grade?
2014-06-16 Beckoning Call American Fork Canyon Sport 5.12a
Flash Oi. I just got back from the Red, how am I getting so pumped? Nice short route.
2014-06-15 Foreplay American Fork Canyon Sport 5.11c
Red point Better than it looks, foot slipped low on the route. 2g.
2014-06-15 If i only had a brain American Fork Canyon Sport 5.12b
Red point Super! I tried this last year and could barely get through the lower boulder problem, "alzheimer" flash though. Such a cool middle section of big pockets!
2014-06-08 Apetizer American Fork Canyon Sport 5.12b
Red point Wow! Surprised. Tried this a year ago and couldn't do the shouldery boulder problem, came back and figured out some new (easier) beta and really enjoyed it. 3g.
2014-05-26 Team Wilson The Motherlode Sport 5.12d
Red point Didn't think I'd do this pumpfest before the end of my trip. Sustained with good movement and a little bit of everything. 4g.
2014-05-24 Kick me In the Jimmie The Motherlode Sport 5.12a
On-sight Got on this to warm-up thinking I had done it before in 2010 and realized I hadn't but had managed to paw my way to the top. Oi, the heat!
2014-05-24 Hoofmaker The Motherlode Sport 5.13a
Red point Thanks for the boulder problem beta Dru, it's all about the right heel hook, getting the right hand pinch and cutting feet to place a left toe. Yeah! Surprise! 5g.
2014-05-23 Outlaw Justice Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.11d
Red point Has a lot of nice variety. Tried this route WAY back in the day with Kris H. when it was out of my league.
2014-05-23 Tweaked Unit Courtesy Wall, Red River Gorge Sport 5.11b
On-sight Very cool slab route!
2014-05-23 Amarillo Sunset Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.11c 5.11b
Red point Aesthetically beautiful! Climbs a little less than it looks, but still pretty cool
2014-05-22 Chainsaw massacre The Motherlode Sport 5.12a
Red point You climb like a man.
2014-05-18 Easy Rider Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.13a
Red point Not so pretty but I'm psyched that I got to put this one down and my new beta at the top worked! Thank god for lay down rests!
2014-05-17 The Force Coal Bank Hollow Sport 5.13a
Red point So glad I had the pleasure of doing this route and that the force was with me. Victory whip!
2014-05-14 Hangover Beer Trailer Crag, Red River Gorge Sport 5.12c
Red point Nice flowy route. 2g. 1d.
2014-05-14 Hippopotomoose Red River Gorge, USA Sport 5.11b
Flash Amazing how the new zoo took so long to be discovered. This wall is a nice addition to the area.
2014-05-14 Barrel Full of Monkeys Red River Gorge, USA Sport 5.11a
Flash Nice climbing here, watch out for snakes!
2014-05-10 Infectious Red River Gorge Sport 5.12b
Red point Beautiful route, wish it were longer! Aesthically pleasing and the movement is great. The bottom thwarted me a few times below the first bolt, but otherwise 2g (sort of).
2014-04-29 Welcomed Guest Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.11d
On-sight Really cool thin, technical arete climbing that works out well that leads to a difficult boulder problem pulling the small roof, to easier climbing above. Surprised I stuck the boulder problem, but don't think I did the best sequence. Nice route, minus the boulder problem
2014-04-29 Fairweather Friend Crossroads at Coal Bank Hollow Sport 5.10d
On-sight Pleasantly surprised by this little gem. Maybe one of my favorite 5.10's in the Red? Very nice.
2014-04-23 Bush league Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.12c
Red point Thanks for waiting around and believing in me Amanda! Thanks too for the heads up that their were some angry bird pigeons on the top ledge...although I forgot in 2 minutes after you told me and almost peed myself! Psyched to come back to this wall and do more next time. 4g.
2014-04-23 Super Pinch Coal Bank Hollow Sport 5.10d
Red point So proud! I remember this being the hardest route on the wall and have avoided until I had done everything else. Just as happy to do this as I was to do Bush League in the same day. It's a spunky 5.10!
2014-04-21 Leave It to Beavis The Motherlode Sport 5.12d
Red point Funtastic! The "slab" in the middle isn't really a slab, fyi. 2g.
2014-04-19 Naked Lunch Red River Gorge, USA Sport 5.12a
On-sight The climbing until the crux at the top is stellar. The crimpy crux near the top is good but its just a little unfortunate that the climbing is really inconsistent. Either way, it's a nice addition to the wall and is worth doing!
2014-04-19 Check your grip Pendergrass Murray Recreational Preserve Sport 5.12a
Red point Really nice! Tried this back in 2010 once or twice and was happy to do it first go this year. Wonderful movement.
2014-04-18 Boilerplate Crossroads at Coal Bank Hollow Sport 5.8
On-sight Wonderful route!

On-sight Fun, easy climbing to a tough upper section
2014-04-18 Cannabis Love Generator Crossroads awt Coal Bank Hollow Sport 5.5 5.11c
Flash A typical RRG route.
2014-04-17 Hip to Jive Chocolate Factory Sport 5.11b
On-sight BIG spiders!! Watch out for those and the pump that comes on quickly at the top
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!
2014-04-06 Trust in Jesus The Motherlode Sport 5.11c
Flash My favorite of the warmups
2014-04-03 Breathe Right The Motherlode Sport 5.11c
Flash Wow, a fight...so numb!
2014-03-28 Chica loca The brightside Sport 5.11a
On-sight Ok warm-up. The run out down low with ledge potential, isn't too bad.
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.
