Anyone for Tuolumne in September?
« on: February 26, 2013, 06:09:02 PM »
The dates are totally flexible.  I'd like to stay for a long week(nine or ten days). 

I lead 10a on gear 11a/b sport.  I'm pretty confident that I can get to 10c/d over the summer.  I'm safe and stoked to climb just about anything.  Shoot me a PM if you're interested.  Ideally we could get some mileage in NH over the summer.

Cheers

Lucky Streaks is a must, 5 ? pitches
Ciebola- a bit run but not bad,, perfect rock
OZ- best 10+ in the meadows ?? might be
handbook 11a, but sew it up

andmaybe to hard but, Speed of Life 11b is one of my top 10 (maybe top 5) routes ever

You also should nip down and do Crest Jewel, brilliant

Crest Jewel, definitely, though technically not in Tuolomne.  Get a really early start on the hike in so you don't fry in the sun.  Fantastic views of Half Dome.  Did it with Mrs. Eyebolter maybe 8 years ago.
