after 3 days of sunshine and cold temps, carver was in the cards. Sadly, Carver is still solidly moist (girls hate that word) and unclimbable. Like the "Dungeon Master" hailed as the best v6 there. 3 ft of standing water.

 "Flying Squirrel" which was "dry"****(not). An adventure into sketchy wet moss topouts followed. YIKES

 The full line of "Angry Squirrel" which links 5-6 moves of hard crimping into "Flying Squirrel." No dice.

 OH! then i went to the good ol PRG! LOOK AT ME CLIMB IN MY VANS!!!! actually this was from 7 years ago, stored deep the archives of shameful topropegym climbing pictures on my mom's old computer. LOOK AT THAT ADVANCED EDGING TECHNIQUE! whoooaaaa

Gorilla Cliffs and the End of USFS Work

Lately i've been bombing back to smith straight from work, shotgunning a coors in the parking lot, then strapping both pads to my back and hauling it down here....to the GORILLA CLIFFS! I believe there are 3 v7s, 3 v8s, 2 v9s, and 2 v10s. The climbing is steep, retardedly sharp, and short. 


Early oct marked a re-newed mojo of psyche. Feeling outta shape, I threw myself at the two "v8s" (NOT) i had done earlier this summer, Jone's Problem and Jizzsap. I managed both of them quickly, which re-affirmed they were just power v4+s in disguise. So then i cleaned dis ting. Super funky steep compression at the beginning leads to a commiting mantle/slab dyno for the massive tick marks. I know i suck at this type of climbing, and the grade may be inflated due to the scary-don't-fuck-up-leg-crunching fall, but whatevers

F.A. of "Blown Away"

3 more days of work in bend, then the eating/hibernation month of thxgiving/december. Then more schooling and gym timing....HARD
