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
Flash maybe even a 3?
2014-11-01 Admiral Nelson Right Fork Boulder V2
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!
2014-11-01 Obtuse Right Fork Boulder V3
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 Maple Pickles Maple Canyon Sport 5.11a
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 Primate Grooming Procedures Maple Canyon Sport 5.7
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.
