School has started again, and most of my spare time has been spent working on the bouldering guidebook. It's up to 250 problems, but geographically I've only covered most of Sinks Canyon. From the Dolomite Band through the Cabin Boulders, so far. There are many more areas to write up, and the full guide will easily surpass 500 problems. It's looking incredible, thanks to a ton of design help from Ben Sears! We're aiming for a release this Spring.
So due to time constraints, and the other project, I'm not going to do a complete write up on my trip with Jesse to the Devil's Kitchen over a week ago. I must say it was a fun and adventurous way to end my Summer break. Thanks for the tour Jesse!
Here is some information:
The hike into the canyon isn't bad at all. Much easier than I expected. The 4WD part on the other hand was longer and worse than expected. You need 4WD! You want high clearance. And you can only hope that a tire doesn't pop on the sharp dolomite blocks.

As soon as I saw the rock below I thought, "That's the famous rock from B3 bouldering." Check out B3 for a couple longer posts about the Devil's Kitchen. Combined, they explain the area, and it's potential very well.
Of course I took my own picture of the famous rock.
