2015-06-09 Super Spunk Maple Canyon Sport 5.13a 5.12d
Red point The top of this is so fun! Big move at the roof, with some slappy compression moves to the anchor. Wish it was longer and more sustained
2015-05-31 Cracker Boy Maple Canyon Sport 5.10b
Flash very cool. Being a year older does not mean you're a year wiser. Almost there, but wondering if this was a good idea. Pitch #27.
2015-05-31 Key Lime Sky Maple Canyon Sport 5.8
On-sight 28 pitches bitches!! And this route was the best way to finish all of them! Beautiful, long easy route. Big thanks to my Pawel for sticking it through all the belayer fatigue, dehydration,and starvation. There was limited short roping, limited stick clipping of wrong routes, and lots of rope pulling. I owe you a beer babe!
2015-05-31 Mini Meditation Maple Canyon Sport 5.10c
On-sight nice nice
2015-05-31 245 North Maple Canyon Sport 5.10b
On-sight my feet might bleed. pitch #25
2015-05-31 Ted Maple Canyon Sport 5.10b
On-sight getting close. this isn't much fun anymore. pitch #26
2015-05-31 Zen Master Maple Canyon Sport 5.11a 5.10d
On-sight very nice sequential climbing
2015-05-31 Meet The Buddha Maple Canyon Sport 5.10b 5.10a
On-sight my feet hurt really bad. Pitch #21
2015-05-31 Tits on a Buddha Maple Canyon Sport 5.11a 5.10d
On-sight not sure what the name means. hard start though leads to easier terrain.

On-sight another hard start. yikes!
2015-05-31 Lunchables Maple Canyon Sport 5.12a 5.11d
On-sight so fun! pitch #17 of the day. 11c/d?
2015-05-31 Groundwork Maple Canyon Sport 5.12a 5.11c
On-sight 11c. pitch #18. learned some interesting belay techniques here...when you're a little girl belaying a big guy the best way to belay is to allow the rope to feed through the gri gri to the ground and begin to coil up on itself. sure fire way to give a soft DECK.
2015-05-31 Zoaster Toaster Maple Canyon Sport 5.11d
Red point Alzheimer's onsight (2009 maybe?)! woot! pitch #19
2015-05-31 Worm Hole Boogie Maple Canyon Sport 5.10c
On-sight Pitch #14. First route that made me think and got my forearms a little pumped. 14 pitches done in 2 hours and 11 minutes. Feels like I'm cheating...

On-sight climbing 5.10 in maple can be hard - where are all the jugs?

On-sight jelly belly!
2015-04-28 Les is More American Fork Canyon Sport 5.10a
On-sight nice afternoon climbing with Keith and Sarah!
2015-04-28 Baghdad American Fork Canyon Sport 5.11b
Flash so short. would be cooler if it wasn't 20 feet (tops) tall with a 20 foot no hands scramble to the anchor.
2015-04-28 Total Recall American Fork Canyon Sport 5.11d
On-sight best pitch of the day, nice face climbing to a punchy little crux with a long reach.
2015-04-28 Pocket Change American Fork Canyon Sport 5.11b 5.11a
On-sight nice easier terrain face climbing, to an awkward, kind of spooky diehdral finish.
2015-04-24 Right Hook Pop Tire Cave Sport 5.12b
Red point ain't nothing but a gansta party
2015-04-12 Speaking in Tongues Welcome springs Sport 5.12b
Red point 10 billion ascents ago, this route would have been amazing! Now, it's a matter of how long you can slime through slippery limestone...still pretty cool though, except for clipping the anchors :O Tried this route once, four years ago and was psyched to do it 2g this time around
2015-04-05 Blinking Cowbay Welcome springs Sport 5.12b 5.12a
Red point I love cowboys. The crack section was cool.
2015-04-05 Lend Me an Ear Welcome springs Sport 5.12a
Red point Hardest move is matching feet out on the arete. Pretty cool and airy little boulder problem up high.
2015-04-04 Resurrection Welcome springs Sport 5.13b
Red point Hallelujah! Funny to do this route on Easter weekend :) Awesome route with sustained climbing, happy it came together for me, thanks for the support to Pawel and everyone else! And I apologize to everyone present, for my language on the send go!
2015-03-18 The Village Idiot The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.12d
Red point SO much climbing! Really enjoyed this route, reminded me of Rifle in some ways. Skirted the crux a little (which is unfortunate, because the moves directly above the crux are hard and really cool), but the actual crux moves and holds are unenjoyable and forcing it straight up with an obvious weaker sequence to the left would be contrived. Still a fantastic route worth doing! Suprisingly, did it third try in one day...so just like 400 feet of climbing alone on that route! no biggie :) 3g.
2015-03-18 The Village The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.12a
Red point Fantastic route! Left a little blood on the bottom...the extension (village idiot, 12d) is worth doing! 2g.
2015-03-16 Voyager One The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.13a
Red point nice addition Jonathan! hard boulder problem to easier, sustained and interesting terrain above. Surprised to do it 2g.
2015-03-15 Total Depravity The Grail, Lime Kiln Canyon Sport 5.12b
On-sight Great addition to the wall, with fun climbing!
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
