Castle Rock Conditions Thread
« on: January 16, 2010, 04:37:37 PM »
Populated with many peoples today 1/16
mostly dry rock - the wind has been blowing up there. A new tree has fallen next to the other fallen tree on PL.

started to sprinkle mid afternoon

Ran into Teddy on the way to Indian Rock. Hung out at Indian Cracks, shot the shit.

Went to Two Mile Bar for the first time. Got the topo and the route descriptions sussed out. Some of those cracks pack a wallop for 25 feet!

First time climbing there (I did the prior guidebook work on a wet day). We started out on Super Crack of the Stanislaus:









Then we did several other shorties. The moss in the cracks was little damp, not too bad, but enough to bleed onto the tape!





Sorry for the thread drift.

We got over 4 inches of rain from this last storm.  The falls should be running well. 

Wet suit and snorkel!

It sure seems like it is going to be pretty cold up there tonight.  You don't think it is going to be ice?

But that's just talk, I'm going to the Pins tomorrow.  I feel like a junkie right now, having withdrawals, and I really need to get high!

I am so serious I shaved my beard, bought a hold brush, and don't plan on wearing underwear, all in the name of sending.
