George And Martha

Leading George And Martha (5.10a) on Sunshine Wall. Nice - fingers to thin hands (with many incuts) changing to hands and short OW near top. Note how the gold colored lichen has been cleaned off near this popular crack (March 12, 2006).

Nice work!

Looks like you guys had a great day in the warm sunshine. Fun times.

How did you like the little offwidth surprise at the top of this one? Definately the crux of the route (atleast for me).

Re: Nice work!

Thanks Martin but did not send (weak). Had to take on the lower part where it's kind of fingery/thin hand. Actually I thought that was the crux for me (lack endurance right now). The OW at the top was "fun" too but there's a rest stance right at its base where I could catch my breath (and found a nice edge deep inside it).

I remember looking at this route and really liked the looks of it. How bad is OW? Nice weather out there too, nice!

Re: Sweet

Thanks Haydar. The OW is a #4 Camalot size (loose fists for me).....but reach deep inside and feel-up the left wall of the crack though (hint :)
Yeah, the weather was stellar (not so at Tieton the day before :)

OK's appearent to me that you and Shirley DO NOT work. How else do you get out to these places? C'mon, tell us your secret. Inheretance? Buried treasure? Bouncing checks? Bank robberies?

Re: Unemployed?

Hi Dave,
thank you very much :)
Wish we were loaded and unemployed! Unfortunately, still employed and still not loaded. Just try to get out every weekend. No house, no kids, 1bdrm apt, and if things get tight, we'll eat our dog.
Thanks for checking these out!

Beautiful shot, Radek! But I feel sorry for your dog... :^(

Re: Unemployed?

Thank you very much Carolyn!
I'd take my dog's lifestyle any day....wake up, nap most of the day, eat, get into the trash, pee, poop, runaround, chew a bone, get scratched/petted. Repeat.

Re: argh

"I miss Vantage"

yeah, that's esp. true when it's pouring outside and you're sitting at work daydreaming about SUNSHINE wall :)

thanks for visiting!
