Child's Play

5.10a/b 6a+ 19 VI+ 19 E2 5b (1 p) 

Colorado : Golden : ... : Play Pen

This was an exciting lead. I didn't have issues with the third bolt like others (and I'm 5'5'), but that doesn't mean you won't. Not a great lead for new 5.10 leaders, but really exciting and sustained if you're looking for it. Is happily lead it again

Toy Box

5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b (1 p) 

Colorado : Golden : ... : Play Pen

The roof is definitely the crux. This gave me some trouble, but it's really fun. Also pretty sustained for the grade. Well worth doing.

Smallville

5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b (1 p) 

Colorado : Boulder Canyon : Across from The Bihedral ak...

Well bolted (especially through the crux). I found it to be quite pumpy going through the ear. This route made me work hard (both physically and technically).

Quick Silver

5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b (1 p) 

Colorado : Boulder Canyon : Across from The Bihedral ak...

Mostly 5.8 to 5.9 moves, the crux is definitely 5.10, but it's short lived.

Fun warm up route, with an easy roof.

Colorado : San Luis Valley : ... : Penitente - Entrance Area

Wife and I both led this route. We are both terrible at slabs. Fun intro back to slab climbing.

May-B-Nueve

5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c (1 p) 

Colorado : San Luis Valley : ... : Penitente - Entrance Area

This route forced me to remember to trust my feet. Very sustained friction moves with a couple of decent hand holds along the way.

Mr. Wind

5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b (1 p) 

Colorado : San Luis Valley : ... : Penitente - Entrance Area

The anchor could use some new hardware. It has two (open) hooks without gates.

Tanks for the Hueco

5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b (1 p) 

Colorado : San Luis Valley : ... : Penitente - Inner Canyon

I was humbled by this climb. I want to come back again to red point it. The crux is extremely pumpy (so much that I struggled on the section above).

Gully Washer

5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a (1 p) 

Colorado : Boulder : ... : Dream Dome

Onsight. Tricky, I thought this was harder than the 10a (wet dreams) next to it.

Wet Dreams

5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a (1 p)

TR'd from the anchors after leading Black Nepalese.

Black Nepalese

5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b (1 p) 

California : Yosemite National Park : ... : Drug Dome

Definitely a fun lead. Good bolt placement, though it might be an ugly lead fall due to the sharp protrusions (which are great holds). I recommend doing the trad start, it adds some more fun moves to the climb.

Aug 14, 2014

Beach Crack

5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b (1 p) 

California : San Francisco Bay Area : ... : Middle Tier

Some quality crack moves, pretty good pro, and pumpy in places.

Taylor Brook

5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b (1 p) 

Oregon : Smith Rock : ... : (5) Southern Tip

I found this to be a fun and quite straight forward lead for a 5.7

5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b (1 p) 

Oregon : Smith Rock : ... : (5) Southern Tip

Papillion

5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c (1 p) 

Oregon : Smith Rock : (u) Red Wall

Fun lead, some exciting moves on the way up. I'd definitely do it again.

5 Gallon Buckets

5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c (1 p) 

Oregon : Smith Rock : (g) Morning Glory Wall

Amazingly fun lead. Easy climbing to the first bolt. I would not want to take a lead fall at all on this route with all of the pockets though.

How Low Can You Go?

5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b (1 p) 

Oregon : Smith Rock : (j) Rope de Dope Block

It looks like the rap rings have been refurbished. Fun lead, my first at smith.

Rope de Dope Crack

5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c (1 p) 

Oregon : Smith Rock : (j) Rope de Dope Block

Fun lead (exciting as a new trad leader). I felt pretty safe most of the time, had to run out a bit, but it was good holds.

Aug 5, 2014

Isle of the Dead

5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b (1 p) 

Colorado : Boulder Canyon : ... : Wall of the Dead

Tough lead (it's been over a year since I've lead above 5.9). It was very fun though.

Incline Club

5.7+ 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b (1 p)

Fun lead, two very different personalities.

Poncho

5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c (1 p) 

Colorado : Shelf Road : The Bank

Fun lead, exciting. Anchors need to be replaced.

Slab Route

5.7+ 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b (1 p) 

Utah : Moab Area : ... : Ice Cream Parlor

Too runout in my opinion. Fun to TR, but a scary lead.

5.6 Corner

5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b (1 p) 

Utah : Moab Area : ... : Ice Cream Parlor

OS - really fun, exciting. I thought it had a few moves that were more like 5.8.

Mud from all the rain lately. Mud in crack and pockets. Felt harder than 5.7.
