Route Report

Post by Artsay » Mon Apr 07, 2008 6:29 am

The gorge was pretty wet this weekend. Where did you climb and what was dry/wet?

From what I remember from the Motherlode on Saturday: Kick Me In the Jimmy, Skin Boat, Leave It To Beavis, most of Tuna Town, and Flux were dry on the Undertow.
Sunday went to Drive By and most was dry. Whipper Snapper, Hakuna Metata, Extra Backup, and Beer Belly were wet.

Spoke to a friend that said they found dry rock at the Chocolate Factory on Saturday on the two overhanging 10's and a new 5.11 slab
Does he have a strange bear claw like appendage protruding from his neck? He kep petting it.

saturday: tectonic/johnny's wall in muir was good, just had to bounce around a little in order to avoid wet climbs/waiting in line. :cry:

sunday: funk rock was almost completely soaked. very disapointing. we did manage to bag cruising lane & rite of passage, so not a total loss. headed over to solar/gold coast after that. it was completely abandoned :?: so we messed around on the easy stuff and had a grand ol time. :P climbing in the red IS a crapshoot when it comes to wet climbs/crowds.

saturday: Military Wall was dry enough on most routes; a little damp but doable. Possum Lips was wet.
sunday: (much of) Bruisebrothers, Animal Crackers, and (mostly...not the 5.11) Midnight Surf walls at Muir were dry.

Saturday: Bob Marley had some runoff on (no redemption looked dry form the ground) Sugar Magnolia and at least one of the climbs right of Dogleg. Some climbers complained that the upper holds on Ultraperm were damp. The stuff right of that wan't too bad.
