Pauligk Pillar
Nov 19, 2017 · 1 pitch. Lead / Onsight. 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!!

Nov 17, 2017 · Lead / Redpoint. 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.
