Northwest Buttress
Sep 6, 2021 · 7 pitches. w/ cy. Soloed to the first “bench” about halfway up the route, felt very mellow more like 4th class slab walking. Roped up and pitched out the rest except for one 30’ section where we simuled to gain a better belay stance. 6 hours car to car. Parties above and below all moving at about the same pace.

Gold Rush
Aug 23, 2021 · w/ joey, so pumped by the end. Placed three 3s to start, four 2s, one 1, and two .75s. Two 3s would have been fine but you place them early so why not. One .75 would have been ok, you doubled up on them. An extra gold would have been nice to really see it up like a pansy.
