High bouldering

The big one
With the change in the weather coming I had some loose ends to tie up before it was all done for the year. This meant a trip up high was in store again. The surprise was how warm it was and this turned out to make it a trip going for the shade of the boulders. Fist stop was a nice boulder with some warm ups on it and a couple nice moderates to get the blood flowing.
Morning sun

A nice VB to start

On to V2 sit
The rock is textured and super clean so all that was needed was climbing. I found a nice line on the arete to the right of the one above and made the quick onsite.
Nice V2

Sloopy topout
After a while and a lot of different problems I found some hard ones to work on. A nice dyno, some hard underclings, and a crimpy face all checking in between V4 and V6.
Hard toss to edge

Jab to a crimp

Big toss to slooper.
Next some undercling fun.
Incredible line with power moves all the way.
Then on to the dyno next door. An all out throw for a small slot then stick to to top.
Stuck it!!

Then I found a brilliant little lighback that had super cool moves.

To tell the truth though the face to the left was the big surprise. A V5 send on the first go! Sloping crimps was the name of the game.

Stuck it!!!
All that remained now was a cool down on the way back to the car. A nice trip up between the trees will do.
Brilliant V2 and a great finish.
20 problems later and it was time to go. Bring on the rain its time to get back to cleaning more rocks for the winter.
