We got a little more work done in Panther Gorge on July 26 (Had the Radish (.8+)/80', Nothing but the Rain (.9+)/100') and August 1 (Throne to the Lions (.9+)/270'). The weather's been dry and the wind has kept the temps down on the days we needed it to. Loren Swears was with on the 26th, then Bill Schneider was on board yesterday. Great days out with great friends.
Thone:


Nothing But the Rain:

My thanks. It's been a phenomenal season with the dry weather. Two of these are lines I've been eyeballing for years.

Mudrat-you know I'm liking all that and a big CONGRATULATIONS to you and your friends. Pretty awesome stuff you folks have done.
Question-in the first pic of the Impaler, across the valley is seen a massive crack/gully. Is it named, have you climbed that?

Thanks, Woodly. This has been really therapeutic this summer and some of these have been things we've been trying to get on for years. The dry weather has really helped.

That gully divides the Panther Den and Feline Wall. I have a line that basically goes up the edge of it called Promised Land. We rapped down the gully afterward. In the winter it's a decent I climb. My friend Matt climbed it several years ago, and because I wasn't available named it "Sorry Kevin." LOL. Anyway it's overhung at the top and more chossy/low angle below. It's an interesting feature all the way around.

This is what the gully looks like near the bottom:

And finally to wrap up the PG season (I think).

September 6 found Adam Crofoot, Katie Vannicola, and me putting up a long-standing multi-pitch route on Haystacks Shield that Adam had been eye-balling since 2017: Trigger Warning (.10b)

September 12: I took a newbie, Colin Aldrich, back to PG and we put up a 360' multi-pitch on the Agharta Wall. Wrecking my Zen went as and aided route (5.9 A0) and broke through the lower roofs. Crofoot had explored the first moves on this back in 2016. Now someone just has to go free it. Maybe next year.

  1. Haystack (No Man's Land)-Trigger Warning (5.10b+) (w/Adam Crofoot & Katie Vannicola) 2020 Sept. 6.
  2. Marcy (Agharta Wall)-Wrecking My Zen (5.9 A0) (w/Colin Aldrich) 2020 Sept. 12.

Adam on Trigger Warning


Colin on Wrecking My Zen

Busy for sure! Life has been crazy since March. Thank you.

I use a combination of La Sportiva Miuras and some old school Five Tens that have been resoled if I want more comfort. That said La Sportiva TC Pro is on my wish list. You'll see alot of people in both La Sportivas that I mentioned.
