Climb Report - Santee Boulders - Travis' first outdoors (November 2006)
'Jas' & 'Trav'
We ditch work mid-week to start our outdoor adventures and what do you know? it turns out to be 'Santa-Anas' and 95'+ in November!
Trav gets his harness on and he is ready to join the world of "Top-ropers":
We start on MudBall West, a couple of easy ones. The 5.4 crack and an awkward 5.6 crack:
Trav makes it up the 5.4, no sweat. Now gives the 5.6 a shot . . .
We move over to American Express, 5.9**. A little over his head but he gives it a go:
He makes the first move. He's barely touching the rock!
He pulls a real power move (easily a 5.8):
and cannot go any further. But is happy with his first attempt.
We go over and boulder a couple of routes on Amphitheater rock but by now the rock is bakeing our finger-tips. Did #2 & (probably) #4 according to this Topo:
The next day was like 65' but we do not regret our initial outing. Stay tuned for more from:
