Southeast Buttress 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b
  Aug 2, 2016 - Awesome epic climb. I found an atc and lost a quickdraw haha.
Heart of the Sun 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a
  May 30, 2016 - Someone ran off with my yellow grigri and magneto carabiner after i let them borrow my top rope setup. I was up on another pitch and found out later when it was missing. Please pm me if you were in the party involved. I'm sure it was an accidental mistake
Towering Inferno 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c
  May 30, 2016 - Absolutely amazing. I led pitch 2. That first overhung was pretty intense. I missed the bigger hold right above the right hand crimp near 1st roof. 11b section further up was damn near impossible. What is the beta at the 2-3 bolt?
Fortune Cookie 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a
  May 28, 2016 - Start harder than 5.9 due to slickness of rock I think.

Big move! Maybe only V3 if over 6'  A slab mantle one move wonder. Thinking about the logistics to the nearest hospital makes the mantle more heady.  The Inca Arete!!  Failing a 5.12 roof but getting an excellent picture!  Castle Rock Proper - having fun on the free solo 5.6 to the top
