Climb Report - Santee Boulders - Travis' first outdoors (November, 2006)

Climbers: 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":

All set

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 . . .

MudRock West

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:
