I would love to get over there and lead it sometime - it looks like a fun climb for sure!  Nice work putting it up!  Oh, and methinks I'll definitely be happy that there is a bolt right there! =)

The caption on that photo should say " kat's head shown for scale only"

Hold it, weren't we talking about Rock Naked?

If you want to lead that, you're as nuts as Mud himself  Undecided

I feel like I missed something here, but I'm now very wary of the words "rock" and "naked" being used together!

Had a fun two days with KC at Pinns.
We talked to a lot of different folks, some climbers, some not.
We started and finished a new route Friday.
Call of the Crud 5.5, 4 bolts in 100 feet to a 2 bolt anchor.
It got pretty smoky starting about mid day.
I think the smoke actually helped keep the temps down a little.
Camped last night and went back out early today.
We noticed a thin layer of ash on the car this morning.
I thought the chute I had my eye on would be at least partially shaded early.
I was wrong.
Two bolts in on a sun drenched face and I'd had enough.
We'll finish that one next weekend.

I think it was cooler down there than up here.

It was only 99 yesterday but felt about 103 to me on the way out after we decided to bag it.
Working in the sun didn't help but I was determined to at least get the line started.
There was not a single mosquito in the campground but there are still biting flies.
I thought the flies were gone but they seem to have gotten a second wind.
Persistent little buggers.

How is life up north, other than hot?

Hot and a bit muggy.  Today is a bit cooler and actually fairly reasonable.  Got out  today and and did two climbs at a local climbing area called the exits ( you take one of two exits off the freeway.  The guidebook uses the word Velcro to describe the rock and it is appropriate.  Some of the most and most likely the most tacky rock I have ever climbed on.  Got out two different days and rode the bike.  Starting to settle in a bit but have a ways to go.

Excellent. Good to know you are getting out.
That rock sounds interesting.

Sound interesting. I went looking for it on that "garbage in/garbage out, with occasional good entries" site. Is this it:

Nope, that is Little Mount Si which is actually closer to the house and as of yet I have not been there.  There are supposed to be some steep climbs that can be climbed when wet but they are known to seep a bit during the rains.

This is Exit 38 and the crag with Endless Bliss

We need you to come up here and write a comprehensive guide book to the I-90 corridor.  I figure you can knock it out when you cruise through the PCT next summer.
