Matt cranking on "Eastern Heart".


This has a funky start, it is best to stick clip first bolt. Thuggy stemming leads to a slab crux, followed by a neat arete section and thin move to the anchor.


This is the East-facing wall on pillar in the center of the Quarry Wall.


8 bolts.

A large undercling below the second bolt came off today and hit my belayer in the chest. Probably did not change the grade, but beware loose rock on this pitch.

A friend of mine tried to put up the chimney to the right of this route maybe a year or two ago, he went back last weekend and was thinking about finishing it up but could no longer find it.... He's proposed that the pillar is no longer there. Thought I would put it out there for verification.

Everything is still there, including the chimney.

A lot of loose rock on this one. It's definitely still cleaning up, and I suspect it will get harder as more holds rip. I almost gave it a bomb, but the positioning at the top is sweet.
