I sent a couple PMs. ...

If you don't hear back on your PMs, esp. from those who don't log in regularly, it might be that they didn't know there was a PM due to this: http://www.mudncrud.com/forums/index.php?topic=2888.0
Inch by inch, I will get there.

A couple of us are meeting up this afternoon. Bringing back the dreams of the early 90's! Get your lycra, mullet, and Boreal Vectors!

There are some new glued holds that need a day or two to dry.

I used a wire brush attachment to a drill to grind off some of the paint on the old holds. Could use more scraping.

The lead route goes. The bolt on holds all spin. So if you pull straight down and don't mind pulling on a few exposed studs, then it's good fun. Be sure to close the wire gate at the chains. I'll bring a socket wrench, some 3/8" nuts and a few holds next time.

You may want to consider parking a little further away or keeping a low profile. There were sheriffs driving around, seemed to be looking for someone (probably not climbers)? That neighborhood might be on edge.
