Sunny Day At Larch Boulders

So the last sunny day for a while seamed like a good time to hit the boulders so off to Larch I went. This time would be different because I would be meeting other climbers up there later in the day. I started the day by cleaning of the South Face Boulder and finishing a little trail work. Then it was right on to the climbing. The boulder is about 12' high at the tallest point and about 20' long. It overhangs about 5 degrees.

I did 5 problems on the boulder and there are 3 more to do.

The line up the middle of the boulder I will have to come back to when I can get a small stump out of the way first. I did try the start moves though.

Next was on to the right side and what a fun line it was.

Next a send of the far right end would cap the boulder with a fun V0 on great holds.

With some nice sends in hand a packed up and headed up the trail to the Leavenworth boulder where I was meeting Eric for some more bouldering action. It was his first time to the Leavenworth boulder so that was cool. I should him the problems and we got to the climbing straight away.

After some warm ups it was on to harder things. I gave a few goes to my project and maid a little success on the way. Maybe a send next time.

What a great day of climbing with new friends. I hope the rain goes away soon and cool fall temps make room for some sends. Keep climbing out there.
