Hi! I can escape from work as early as 3:00 for a quick trip to Index or the exits. Anyone up for some sunny climbing?! I can lead up to 5.8 trad and 5.10 sport and am more than happy to follow harder climbs.

I want in!

I have a sport rack/rope

Will lead up to 5.9 sport, never tried .10 but am willing to. No trad gear.

I'm free all day!

Sounds great!

I'm thinking that we should go to the Deception Crags area of Exit 38. Lots of 5.8-5.9 and a few good 5.10's. Does that sound good to you? Bring your rack and rope and meet me outside the Taco del Mar on 42nd street just west of University Ave at 3:30. I can drive.

There is still room for up to two more in my car. I can be reached at 360-471-9227.

Valerie - I'd like to come along (75% chance).

Dave - can you bring my rope and anchors?

Whoops whoops whoops!

Thought this was Thursday afternoon, not Tuesday! Apparently a college education doesn't teach you to read titles properly. Scratch me, then! Sorry!

But if you're in for Thursday, let me know!

Great, so it sounds like Dave, Brian and myself so far then (I will be up for more weekday cragging trips in the near future Andrew). Dave, we could either just take your car, if it is already here, or we can trade spots in my nearby parking space after I move out my car.

Should I bring a guide book, or do either of you have one?

Also, bring a headlamp in case we are inspired to climb up until near dark. The hike down in the trees tends to get dark long before the rock does.

I will come, too, if there's room for me. I'll meet you at Taco Del Mar unless I hear from you otherwise. It looks like we already have 2 ropes and 2 sets of draws coming, but if we need more, let me know.

Excellent. Michelle, more draws might me helpful if it is not too difficult to bring them. My car is full now. See you all soon.

Valerie, Dave, Michelle, and I headed out to x38 for some pleasant climbing on Tuesday evening. Warmed up on two routes at We Did Rock, then Michelle and Dave both led Occam's Razor at Hall Creek Rock. Dave's technique (i.e., spanning the entire crag like a puny arete) differed somewhat from Michelle's more "nuanced" approach.

We then headed over to Nevermind where Valerie put up Love Bucket (10c, with much cursing) and I put up Neverigine (10a). Dave followed Neverigine for a solid pump, then Michelle led the route in fine style. After climbing Love Bucket, Valerie gave me a patient belay on Architect Rally (11a), then followed and cleaned. First time for me climbing at Nevermind and I was quite impressed by the quality of the routes. The fellow who was taking repeated falls on the first, rusty, spinning bolt on Nevergine also inspired (false?) confidence in manky looking hardware. That particular piece of "protection" just inspired Michelle and I to climb faster.

Good times with some great folks. :drink:
