The Ice Age boulders.
Work continues on the bouldering guidebook. The sun emerged for a few hours this afternoon, and we had a short session at the Ice Age area. I was excited to return to some boulders I hadn't been to in a while, and to use our new large Organic pad.
It's nice to have some new foam, and the design looks great. Thanks Josh!
I took photos for the guide, and re-climbed some lines to figure out the grades and star ratings they deserved. The Warmup Boulder has grown back some lichen, and gotten sandy again since our last visit. It needs more traffic!
The Mammoth boulder was just as good as I remembered.
I managed to climb "Il Mammut" the proper way, by stabbing two fingers into the Mammoth's eye like Davin did on the first ascent. The pocket is deeper than I ever expected it to be. It requires perfect aim, but it's really fun to catch.
Solid V7 and two stars on my three star scale. It felt really good to send it!
Clouds, cold, and a little snow are expected during the next couple days. Maybe I'll get a few more pages finished while waiting for Spring to return.
