Tum Tum

Since my awesome spring break trip to red rocks I've been getting out a lot.  I think I have been out climbing 10 weekends in a row now!  My fingers are paying for it, and I will have to take a break for a few weeks, but it's been a great spring.  Some highlights have been.

Tum Tum:  Went to this place a few weekends in a row and got on a few really cool cracks!

Pictured above an old lead route called battleship gallactica? I think.  5.11+/V5- if you jam it, and probably V6 if you face climb it. The great part is this thing tops out at like 25 feet.  I worked on it for a few hours and finally, barely, barely, sent it!

Next we found a pretty long roof crack, that started out as hands and widened to offwidth at the crux.  I came really close to sending but chickened out.  Since if you fall off the finish you tumble 30+ feet down a cliff.  But, none the less really cool crack. Heres a picture of Elise on it below.

This place has some great face bouldering, and a shrine on the top of the hill with a neat deck, pretty cool.  Heres a few pics of some friends on the face routes I suck at.
