More information:
I like all climbing, though I haven't experienced mixed, ice or alpine. So far, trad, sport, bouldering, gym... they're all part of the same game and are components that add up to a great time. Been climbing since I was 9 and, next to my wife ; ), it's defined my life. See climbing til this game ends.

Boltway 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c
  Jun 15, 2012 - Totally cludge. pretty much fucked everything up. great lesson learning experience. went over instead of under flake, didnt join pitches, ran out of gear, didnt have 2 ropes for descent, ran out of water. in all 300% longer than anticipated. BUT jump
Lunar Leap 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a
  Jun 15, 2012 - Leap is out of control. Stood on Erin's back! ; ) More sketched than expected but to do again would be a blast now that I know the story.

Crescendo 5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a
16-Nov-2012.  Basecamp ~ 2/3 way up trail to Sugarloaf.  Sun setting behind the Organ Needle (I think).  Forecast had high 60s, sun & 0% precip for a week.  Held true for that day & the last.  Organ weather didn't agree at all with either Las Cruces or White Sands forecasts for 3 days in between.  Cold, windy, wet.  Always come prepared.  woops.  SE wall.  History???  WSW face.  Flea Tree easily visible.  Currently hosting Many Times (aka Crackle Top) & Crescendo.  Hard to justify the approach for just one 2-pitch line but for two it's good.  South side history please.  1st pitch SS anchors.  ~25m rap to ground.  Could use some sealant to prevent water entry / freeze.  Also, if anyone's so kind, please upgrade to rap ring hangers if I don't get to it soon enough.  Please don't nab biners/rap rings.  Keep it nice and easy for all to use.
