Pauligk Pillar 5.7+ 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b
  Nov 19, 2017 - With Ian. Very fun 160ft first pitch! It seemed to take cams much easily than nuts. Buried a #3 about 30ft up, just past the double roof... damn. Nice shiny belay bolts - thanks!!
Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b
  Nov 17, 2017 - With Ian. Super fun route! Walked off far right to the top of the canyon, then worked our way down... in the dark of course.
Guys and Ghouls 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b
  Nov 17, 2017 - With Ian. Retrieved bail gear left in the windstorm - thanks to anybody who left it! Single bolt at anchor, one missing, used #5, but could easily have continued over the top to build something else.
Fender Bender 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b
  Nov 17, 2017 - Climbed with Ian. Put a large nut high in the top of the cave before stepping back down and moving out onto the face. Tight squeeze, and felt committing.
