Thanks guys. I had a nice night out with Kat - pulled plastic for a bit, had a spicy pizza and a powerful ale at the local eatery followed by a hefty slice of Red Velvet cake from the Buttery here at home. Yum!  Laugh Out Loud Yes Nod Big Grin Thumb Up Dude

I'm always joking about Birdbrain Pinnacle and I remember Brad asked me one day not too long ago if I had actually been on top of it. I forgot that I had these pictures from the day I climbed it. Not the best angle since it is hidden behind the platform but valid nonetheless. The second picture shows how exposed it was that day when the res was waaaaaay down.

When the res goes dry it will have to go from the base.

new rating system

Res -1
Res -2
etc

for how many feet below the bathtub ring the ascent started.

with a W or D modifiers for a wet swim in, vs dry ascent.

For example,

Res -15, W, from the dam side. That would be proud.

Meanwhile the Easter Bunny has been busy, the cat also left a large mouse on the steps.

Looks like it may have been a good day to hit the High Peaks today.
Overcast and windy but no rain so far.
It has been raining pretty steadily here on the coast.
We had a nice breakfast with our climbing daughters (Rosie and Alex).
Looks like a lazy day and a good time to post some Crud.
 
It was busy yesterday with the free admission and holiday weekend.
We talked to some nice hikers and a few climbers  Big Grin


I have never worked so hard to get a climb done at Pinnacles. I estimated 15 times bouldering up and down this thing trying to unlock the sequence. Kat said it might have been closer to 20. It was awkward, balancy and burly all at the same time, on insecure key holds. After my first series of 5 or 6 attempts I rested and Kat took a turn.

Kat changes her shoes to take a crack at Spasm Block. She was soooo close to unlocking the sequence but couldn’t quite conjure up the oooomph or the nerve to pull through. I was very proud of her for trying.




We kept looking at the holds and talking about it. What a great puzzle.
We are not boulderers.
I honestly did not think I could do it and then it happened. 




We headed back to Junction Rock and I led Party Crasher.
Kat got this weird shot of me testing and moving over to find the sling knobs after I placed 3 pieces of gear in the short section of horizontal. I got in a so so number 2 camalot, a pretty good .75 camalot and a slotted and buried green alien and equalized them. Moving past the sling knobs over the headwall was fun and is definitely the crux. A fall further up before the only bolt would be disastrous but the climbing through that section is easy, albeit filthy.  Crazy




Kat decided to lead A Grand Adventure after she followed Party Crasher. She climbed solid and enjoyed the route.
We had a really fun day and the weather was great.  Yes Nod Thumb Up Dude Big Grin

 Mostly runny.

I showed up at noon and explored while it was dry and as soon as I began climbing up a line it started raining.  Been a while getting slicked out. Nice saturated hike back.

I was chuckling after we talked, thinking about you standing up on those big knobs drilling a bolt in the rain  Laugh Out Loud
The rain gauge started tipping there at 3:30 and only lasted a couple hours, just enough to mess with you but obviously not enough to dampen your spirits  Thumb Up Dude Big Grin
