Open to other routes as well, but this would be fun:

Warm up on werk supp

3rd pitch march of dimes

rap to werk supp Pitch 1 chain anchor

traverse to Bastille crack p 2 belay

climb outer space

Walk off, do Blind faith

Walk off, possibly west butt direct start or northcutt (or both).

I'll lead or we swap leads. Need someone who can move efficiently at the grade and belay well

That sounds like a great day! I'm in! I also climb with Patrik - I think he'll vouch for me. Cheers Dan

I reckon I'm hooked up for Monday. I'll post again if it falls through.

I frequently have weekdays off, and have been climbing 15+ years, lead eldo easy 5.10 and been taught to climb institutionally. (safe) I live 12 minutes from eldo turnoff. Shoot me a PM if interested in future

Happy to follow you on Marie Antoinette Tony. With the R-X rating, I'm hesitant to try onsighting.

Ben,

How did the day go? I saw several parties do Werk Supp today and wasn't sure if you were one of them. What a perfect day though... it was hot on Wind Tower, even.

I guess global warming isn't all bad.

Werk supp, third pitch march of dimes. rap then traverse to outer space, blind faith, northcutt, west butt was occupied, so first pitch march of dimes finished the day.

Good day for sure. cheers

There is always the TR rehersal, but if we end up crossing paths in the area, I've done that route several times and I'm comfortable with it if I am feeling good on any particular day. I'd do it with you if so.
Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
