Ringtail 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c PG13
Read a note on the bulletin before we left Indian Creek detailing a large rockfall at a crag our group visited a week before, only to realize it happened on something we climbed. We immediately knew exactly which rock it was.
 <br />Picture on right is of Eric Santos leading the OW corner with the block that came loose still on the wall. It sat right below the anchor nearly 120’ up right above the belayer and nearby climbs. Some witnesses said that miraculously no one was injured when it went.  pulling over the lip <br />photo: Todd Bukowski  traversing left <br />pc: Todd Bukowski   running it out on ringtail. <br />draws are hung on planet ron, but we didn't clip them.. in fact we cleaned them on lead!  chalking up before the last mantle below the anchors. namesake pumping hard in the background.
