|binersrcool||Route Climbed: Midway|
|A beautiful day!! Cold morning, but day was clear and the rock was warm by the 1st pitch of midway. tricky 1st pitch (face/chimney, jogged up the next 2 pitches of friction. good stuff! There's a hueco big enough to bivy in midway up the third pitch. Incredible view of the river!!! Great place to hang out at the top.|

Crack Of Doom. Probably screwed up near top of P1 & eneded up on "hard" terrain.
Damnation Crack. I should've brought a #5 Camalot to make the upper half less stressful. Though not very hard, the flaring chimney up top is not trivial either. Nice route.
Angel Crack. Got 1st pitch of it clean. Nice 5.7 (per Beckey ;)
Midway. 2X, with 2nd time being when took my little brother for his second "multi" pitch (well, 2-pitch) climb.
Saints. 5.8-5.8+ Very nice. (June '04)
Canary. 5.8-5.9 Outstanding. (May '04)
Fault/Catapult. 5.6/5.8 Very nice. Got rained off on Logger's Ledge (June '04)

|Fault/Catapult - 2X - Great climb up lower Castle Rock. Love that Catapult pitch. (5/1/04 and 3/6/05)|
Canary - The first pitch is weird, the climbing is all over the place. Hard for an 8. Did not like it, good pro though. The second pitch is fun, stepping out unto the arete is intimidating, but the climbing is easy. (3/6/05)
Angel Crack - 2X Ass Whooping - Tried it again on 3/6/05, and fell at the same section as on 5/1/04. Your feet are so insecure, since it is so polished and slick. A huge sandbag at 5.10A.
Midway - Great climb. Pretty classic for a 3 pitch mid 5th class route. (5/1/04).
Saber - Very nice climb, a classic for the grade. With Mishell (5-28-05).

|Climbed with jtschanz this fun 3-pitch rock. I don't know how Jim squeezed through the chimney on the second pitch but I almost got myself stuck in it. It was nice to be on dry and warm rock after two days of cold up at Colchuck Peak.|

|Climbed with Haydar after coming down from Colchuck the previous day. Fantastic route - every pitch was more fun than the one before it. Definitely want to come back and climb some more on this rock.|

|This is a great rock. My first WA climbing experience, and I'll be back. The roof on Catapult was fun, the one on Canary was incredible. And we saw Peregrines through the rangers scope on the summit.|
