30 pitches by 30

After the great trip to Red Rocks over halloween, I realized I needed to get back into leading trad climbs. The ones where you place your own gear; cams, nuts, hexes. In order to accomplish this goal I have decided to try and lead 30 trad pitches between now and my 30th birthday. This gives me about six months to accomplish my goals. I will be documenting my progress, both here on my blog and with photos on my flickr page.

It was a great weekend, knocking off some of my trad lead pitches, getting on some hard top-ropes, and having my new J-tree West guidebook signed by the guy whose photo is on the cover (it pays to be in the gear shop at the right time).

After two days (Nov. 14-15) in Joshua Tree I have lead 6 trad pitches:
1. Worthwhile Pile (5.7), Worthwhile Rock
2. Pile it Higher and Deeper (5.7), Worthwhile Rock (or the Ph.D. climb as I like to refer to it)
3. Almost Vertical (5.7), Thin Wall
4. Pitch 1 of Dappled Mare (5.8), Lost Horse Wall
5. Pitch 2 of Dappled Mare (5.8), Lost Horse Wall
6. Pitch 4 of Dappled Mare (5.8), Lost Horse Wall

Its been awhile

Its been awhile since I last posted anything here, but for what its worth I have finally put some new photos up on flickr from a climbing trip to red rocks. This trip occurred over Halloween, and I don't think you'll be disappointed in the costumes.
