Shelf Road

Area Links: Shelf Road Mountain Project

Date: November 29, 2013
Partners: Bethany, Ben
Region: Cactus Cliff (Mountain Project)

Route: Alexi's Climb (Mountain Project)
Type: Sport
Consensus: 5.5
Length: 1 pitch, 40'

Bethany led the pitch, I seconded and unclipped the rope from the draws. After Ian's climb, I went and sport led and clipped the draws back, then was lowered and cleaned the route. Quite fun, and different rock than I've been on lately. Very rough and grippy.

Route: Crynoid Corner (Mountain Project)
Type: Sport
Consensus: 5.7
Length: 1 pitch, 75'

I went up as a second, with the intent of leading the pitch, so I left the draws, instead of cleaning. Half-way up the yanking of the gumbies below kinda got to me, and I decided that I didn't want to be rushed while leading, so I cleaned the upper half and removed the anchor. Lowered and removed the last of the gear. Next time I'll lead it!

Route: Three-Quarter Ton (Mountain Project)
Type: Sport
Consensus: 5.10 b/c
Length: 1 pitch, 80'

I made it to above the 3rd bolt, but decided to call it, to save my hands for one last climb, a bit more in my range.

Route: Beach Ball (Mountain Project)
Type: Sport
Consensus: 5.8+
Length: 1 pitch, 60'

Quite a nice climb to t=end the day on, though near the top my hands and fingers had lost all strength, so I somehow managed to power my way up in during the sunset!
