Kenny leads Buckets

We got started on the south side of things. It didn’t take long before we were trading top-ropes on the area classics. As the day wore on, numbers dwindled as we worked our way northward. By the end of the day only 6 remained, and we wrapped things up and headed out a little before sunset. A few of the climbs we did

  • Elephant Crack
  • Buckets
  • Boobs
  • Unnamed 5.8 (Gary’s favorite!)
  • Box Lunch
  • Marginal Monster
  • Posey’s Pass
  • Cashmere
  • Trivial Pursuit
  • Captain Crunch

Top-roping in the Boobs area

Gene was awarded the Sending Chain, for making quota for the day and generally doing a great job with lots of challenging climbs.

The final 6 climbers headed to Mi Casita for some Mexican food and beers, where we were treated to some very well-sung — and very LOUD — country karaoke. After eating and drinking our fill we headed back home for some well-deserved rest.
