Comments: Nice short route that helped me get my bouldering fix between burns on my main project. The crux bulge feels V5, so it feels 12b. I extended the draw just above the bulge to allow for clipping prior to committing to the crux.

Location: California > San Francisco Bay Area > Castle Rock Area > Indian Rock > Krokus (5.11d R)

Comments: A truly beautiful route that rewards slow static foot movements, creative sequencing, unbelievable body tension on nothing foot bumps, and above all, strong mental focus. The mind is silent with concentration much of the way through.

It took me 10+ burns across multiple sessions to send, a true labor of love.

Big but safe falls.

Castle Rock classic.

Location: California > Lake Tahoe > Highway 50 Corridor > Phantom Spires > Upper Spire > Up for Grabs (5.8)

Comments: You can rap off the first belay station, but it's totally worth it to scramble up the 4th class rock pile and up the 5.5 traverse to the summit. The 360 degree view is out of this world!
