Oh My God!!!




Had a full crew out at Manuels today.  Kim, Bob and myself met up with Tak., Marcie, Alex, Harlanga (sp?) and another fella.  I can't remember his name but it was his first time climbing EVER!  A good time was had by all.  Jan could not make it because he was sick.  
I got a lot of good feedback about the routes and the bolt placements.  Everyone felt very safe.
Tak, Harlanga and Kim led Tauch Auch.
Big cudo's to Kim because it was her first lead of the season, the longest lead she has ever done and the hardest lead she has ever done.   I was off scouting and when I came back, she was 2 clips from the top.  I was totally blown away!!!
Now the OMG part.  I was totally blown away by the amount of climbable terrain above this small face.  I followed the rock vein up the next faces and there are a lot of vertical faces and slabby faces.  It is like the length of Main Face but all of it about 100 to 150 feet high.  I can't wait to get working on this stuff.
This first picture is looking south and the second is looking north at the bottom of the upper faces.  Justin...you had better buy some more bolts!
