Not sure now why I put this in the "trad" section rather than the "general" section...
Anyway, I got out on the rock yesterday! I had a hematoma develop next to my IV site on my right forearm Wednesday evening, and Thursday it was painful to rotate my hand at all. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get out over the weekend, but I was determined to try!
The Auto Road opened early yesterday morning for sunrise viewing, so we took advantage of that. Up at 2 am, the only time that happens is when I have to plow snow... After we got done on Washington, we headed to Lost Ledge. The approach was longer than I originally thought I'd want to do, but after I'd been walking in the evenings and easily hitting a 3+ mph pace over 2+ miles, I didn't see any issues with heading to Lost. For the first time out after surgery, and especially with my hand still hurting a bit, I really didn't want anything too hard and I didn't want to have to worry about placing gear either. I know Lost well enough to know it fit the bill.
My better half and I ended up climbing 3 routes (4 pitches) and having the entire cliff to ourselves. Ended up doing both pitches of the Hole Traverse, the first pitch of Gawking at the Broad Squad and the first 80' or so of Haley Hallie (up to the tree anchor). I'd been eyeballing Haley Hallie for a while but had never gotten around to it, so to be able to do it on my first time out after surgery felt good.
While I'm thinking about it, does 4 Holes and Hole Traverse share anchor bolts? Handren's descriptions says 4 Holes has bolted anchors and from his description of Traverse, there is a set of anchors directly above the flake he says to belay from. Are those anchors for 4 Holes?
