After almost two years I am glad to say Theresa and I are done with Funk Rock!
With occasional help from Matt Tackett, JJ, Matt Johns and Lee Smith, we have hammered out 127 new bolts and hung shiny new anchors. In the process, we probably have the sweetest porch decorations in Lee County, at least from a climbers perspective :-)
With gratitude, I want to THANK Patrick Miller (climbtrad) for taking over the project and putting the lid on it by finishing out Prime Directive, Island in the Sky and one or two trad lines. 
Thanks to everyone who showed their faith by generously donating $ to make this happen. 
I love it when our screwed up little community comes together and gets it done!

As a reward to me, I would like to send Glory Be this weekend. If your out there, can I work into the rotation?

great work Jeff. Just make sure the top is dry. the last holds tend to hold water and it is heart breaking to get all the way up there just to find wetness
Sand inhibits the production of toughtosterone, so get it out and send.

You da'man!

And agreed... Those are the coolest porch accessories I've ever seen (from the climber's perspective)!

Prime is good to go. I will be back Sat. to remove old gear.
Only 1 sport route left Island in the sky, i will start on this Sat. also.
1 trad route still needs some anchors. Sparky goes crack climbing, if any one can loan me some big gear i'll get on that too.
A big thanks to Jeff. Hand drilling sux he is the man. thanks Jeff for showing us all how to be
