Preparation H

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Rico Suave Buttress

Lead / Redpoint. 2nd go. Would be the best arête I've climbed in the gorge if it were a bit longer.

Mar 13, 2016

Yankee Clipper

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (15 p) 

North America : Mexico : ... : La Selva (Jungle Wall)

Lead / Onsight. Climbed 10b version to the false summit. Fairly unremarkable climbing, but good stone.

Feb 23, 2016

Pope On A Rope

5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a (1 p) 

North America : Mexico : ... : The Mileski Wall

Pretty stout. Tough to read, great exposure and good stone. Sustained.

Feb 12, 2016

Peek-a-boo Jesus

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (1 p) 

North America : Mexico : ... : Las Agujas (The Spires)

Feb 12, 2016

Pangea

5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a (1 p) 

North America : Mexico : ... : Las Agujas (The Spires)

OS. Polish isn't too bad now, but the route is definitely going to decrease in quality each season.

Feb 12, 2016

Time Wave Zero

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (23 p) 

North America : Mexico : ... : Time Wave Buttress

A few pitches are classic, and none are poor. Not bad for a 23 pitch climb. The 5.12 pitch is SHARP.

Feb 10, 2016

Silverfish

5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c (1 p) 

North America : Mexico : ... : Lower Virgin

OS. Great movement, but unpleasantly sharp holds.

Flash

Muffin Man

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (1 p)

Harlequin

5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Honeymooner's Area

RP 2nd go. Burly start, super thin crux wayy above the bolt. Another '12b+' for sure.

Nov 27, 2015

Hourglass

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : The Cirque

Nov 22, 2015

Big Bang

5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Long Point

Good climbing for the first 25 feet. The rest is pretty mediocre 5.6 pulling through sharp plates.

Nov 22, 2015

Jesus and Tequila

5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Honeymooner's Area

Did the 11+ linkup today - very good climbing! Not clipping the pin before the traverse helps to prevent rope drag. Great way to warm up for J&T or Sacrilege.

Nov 14, 2015

Sacrilege

5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Honeymooner's Area

Led clean 1st go after TR. Upper bit is hard to read if rain washes away all the beautiful chalk...

Nov 14, 2015

Jesus and Tequila

5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Honeymooner's Area

Nov 8, 2015

Sacrilege

5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Honeymooner's Area

TR flash. Like J&T to the right, it's a sandbag. Not as good as its neighbor, but still pretty great

Nov 8, 2015

Party Till Yer Blind

5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Fern Point - Party Buttress

Nov 1, 2015

Mellifluous

5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Fern Point

Nov 1, 2015

Wild Yet Tasty

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (1 p)

Strech Armstrong

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Bridge Buttress

2nd go. Thin, hard, and intimidating on lead. Doable at 5'7, but difficulty is very height dependent

Oct 11, 2015

Smilin' Jack

5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a (1 p) 

WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Narcissus Cave

U Boat

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (1 p)

Triple Treat

5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a (1 p)

Aug 1, 2015

Fall Line

5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b (1 p)

Jul 22, 2015

Reaching for Razors

5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a (1 p) 

UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Hell Wall

Magnum Opus

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (1 p) 

KY : Red River Gorge : ... : The Solarium

Jul 4, 2015

Delicatessen

5.12a/b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6a (1 p) 

KY : Red River Gorge : ... : The Solarium

La Senora No Contenta

5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a (1 p)

Not A Chance Dude

5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b (1 p)

Would be a good 5.9 if it stopped at the ledge. The rest of the climb is sucky and contrived.

Apr 19, 2015

Lamda

5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b (1 p)

King Mota

5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a (1 p)
