Drywood

Climbed at the upper tier today. Anybody heading up there should take a 9/16" wrench. There were quite a few hangers coming loose and unfortunately i didn't have a wrench with me.

We figured it was too windy up there. Glad to hear you made it.

It looks like I am going up there Tuesday by myself. I am going to try to finish up a couple of routes up there.

If anyone else is interested - 892-8348

Just got back Blair. I tried Pagan's Progress - the left slab - and thought it was pretty challenging - who graded that! I tightened those hangers.

I also finished bolting the two projects (the one we worked just to its left, and a half bolted one to the left of fly guy).

The route to the left of fly guy is probably 5.7 - maybe an easy 8. It is good at the bottom, but unfortunately runs into some loose rock at mid height. I tried cleaning what I could, but in some of that stuff you might as well just start tunneling.

The route to the left of Pagan's is as hard as I remember it. It took quite a few tries to figure out the bottom.

Long hike up there!

I've done a little air time on Pagan's Progress. Haven't tried the one to the left. I did notice another route off to the climbers right of the present climbs that that we should take a look at. It goes through a small roof midway and then finishes with a bigger roof right at the top with some interesting features to pull on.
Make sure you let me know when we need more bolts and i'll pick some up.
Are you two heading south this weekend or climbing/bolting around here??

We are going to Butte to do some fine crack climbing and to hit the free folk music fest. Could be fun....

As for the new routes, the more the merrier. I am getting tired of bad rock. I am now spoiled after Devil's tower. However I am still suffering from some serious poison oak rashes. Ouch.

I also still have your blue BD cam and sleeping bag.
