    exploratory mission to a 2 pitch 5.8 crack inside this badass cliff. not the arete outside which looks like a ten gym climb with a sharp and featured edge. will be back!

    The boulders look like potential.
    We've also been out on some granite.

    Got on a classic 9(+) that I had put off for years because of a somewhat dangerous reputation. Boissal's comment convinced me it was safe (it really was), and I'm glad I hopped on it. Always stoked to onsight something too.

    Out on the blocs again. Sandstone thus time.
    Nice shield. 7C /v9 I didn't send because I'm fat, was sick for a week and on antibiotics. Good excuses are way better than training hard.
    And I had a minor discomfort from the left crimp. Ouch.Click image for larger version.

    9+ and 10c are two grades at a trad crag that really give me pause. Nice job.

    Great pics all.

    At City of Rocks the real scary grade is 10d. I've redpointed a handful of 11a's, but there are 10d's that I'm not sure I'll ever get on (Brown Flake, Harvest, Scar Tissue). Back when Reid Dowdle and crew were developing that crag, 10d was about the hardest that anyone could imagine it seems like, and those grades have stuck around even now that many consider Brown Flake (10d) to be much harder than Interceptor (11a) or Crack of Doom (11c).

    That looks like jugs to the moon.

    But placing gear when you're leading can be tiring.

    Got in a gym for the first time ever these last few days and I gotta say, it fkn sucks. So many strange folk. So many strange sights. I was asking one of the route setters if he knows any good rock around here. ďNah, Iíve never climbed rock.Ē I laughed but he was serious. I saw a cat today with a man bun wearing leopard print tights and a bro tank top. Kicking myself for not getting a pic.

    Still, it feels good to get on a wall for the first time in well over a year. Canít wait to send some routes in the linville gorge area once I get back into climbing shape.

    Yah tgapp, almost looks like some fist crack or wider action in the photo, narrowing to hands. 5.10 fist cracks have kicked my ass a couple times, most notably Fisticuffs in Joshua Tree. That thing is rated 10b, and I'd been leading solid Josh 11b on that trip, and Fisticuffs absolutely humbled me. I didn't even lead it and I still had to hang, it was so strenuous. Cool looking climb in your photo though, you'll get it next time!

    I must be going to the wrong gym because it is full of 20 year old guys that look like ugly girls.

    There are some awesome climbs in the gorge for sure. That route you are talking about I think is The Daddy but I could be wrong.

    Climbing Stoke

    Yeah, you must be.

    As a very casual climber who climbs 99% indoors I prefer the less ďcoreĒ gyms because I donít like the crimpy, tight problems and like the bigger moves, bigger holds, generally more fun problems at the less core gym in town. You also get a lot less bro-brah bullshit which is more inviting to a more diverse crowd.

    Looking glass looks absolutely sick. Hoped to climb the falls this winter but it never came together. When our ice is in, the climbs really are something else.

    Iím in Hickory, NC.
